* Gecko Galz: Harvest 2

Hello Friends!

I'm back to share some more makes using the delightful Gecko Galz paper crafting products.

Before I get to my pieces, let me remind you that Gecko Galz are looking for new design stars to join the DT in 2018. If you are interested, the details are here and applications close on October 15th.


This month our customer challenge theme is ''Harvest Time"  and it's such a wonderful, colourful time of the year!
 We would love to see your projects! The lucky winner and the DT's favourite gets $25 credit to spend in the Etsy store!

So here are my makes. I made a few autumn/harvest themed cards and a couple of retro greeting cards. 

First, I have a harvest card:

I love the colours on both the papers and the topper and, teamed with the gold papers from my stash, they are to me the embodiment of all things autumnal.
I used the Autumn Colours mini paper pack (paper AC06) and the image is from the Harvest Time collage sheet. The edges of the papers were distressed and inked and layered to fit the card. I added a die cut lattice border and two stamped butterflies that were coloured with markers. It's a very simple card, but I like the effect.

Next, I made an autumnal sunflower card:

Again I used Autumn Colours paper (AC06) and teamed it with a resized topper from the Thankful for Fall Jewel It set. The butterfly is from the Butterfly Wings Collage Set. The sentiment was found online and was printed, inked and matted textured gold paper.

My third card also uses beautiful autumn colours:

  For this one, I chose paper AC04 from the Autumn Colours paper pack. It was matted onto textured gold and old gold paper which was distressed. I added a brown organza ribbon and some gold crocheted lace across the middle of the card and popped the very beautiful topper, from the Visionaries collage set, on foam pads. I added some gold foil to the paper and image to give them an extra luxury/distressed look. I fussy cut some leaves from paper AC06; the edges were inked, foiled and shaped. The sentiment is from the In Other Words stamp set

My Harvest themed, customer challenge inspiration card can be viewed here:

Finally, I made a couple of quick and simple, retro greeting cards:

For this card I used the Kitchy Kool paper pack. The paper is called What's Up Cupcake? and the image was cut from Take The Cake). The sentiment is from Charming Words.

And my final card:

This one used the Kitchy Kool paper pack The paper is called Take The Cake  and the image was decoupaged. The sentiment is from Beautiful Words. I added a beaded  flower embellishment.

Here are links to the Gecko Galz products I used:
