Autumn Decoration

Hi everyone. This is Susanne and I'm really happy to be here again to show you another papercrafting project that I've created with the gorgeous leaf stamps by Rubber Dance. I'm sure I already told you, that this is one of my favourite stamp sets!

As you can see, I created an autumn lantern. I love little lights in our house when it's getting dark outside. It's too early for christmas decoration, so I thought - why shouldn't I make myself a fall luminary. 

I used the same technique for the leaves which I showed you in my video tutorial of my last post. I'll give you the link at the end of this post. 

The luminary is cut with my Silhouette Cameo out of green cardstock. I covered the edges with Distress Crackle Paint Walnut Stain and added some Fran-tage embossing powder aged ochre to let it look a little bit rusty.

I created an opening on the back to insert a LED candle light (please don't add a real candle, you don't want to get a bonfire on your table)

That's it for today. You can check out the video for the details on how I created my colorful autumn leaves. Have a nice day! Hugs, Susanne.

You can download the Silhouette Studio file freebie on my blog. So you can build your own lantern.
The stamps I used come from this set from Rubber Dance (image is reduced - the stamps are much bigger!)
