As we approach the middle of October I can’t help but think of the parade of colors nature provides us this time of year. It is the time of year I am most homesick for Chicago. Cooler temps, cozy sweaters, football, falling leaves and oh the smells of autumn; the best.
So it is no wonder I keep grabbing Fall color combinations these days. Here I used Terracotta Tile, Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight. To add a bit of glam factor I added watered down Frost White Shimmer paint, Wink of Stella, and Gold elements.
This card went out to another crafty friend who celebrates her birthday today.
I love the detailing in the stamped leaves. It looks so real.
Happy Birthday Nancy! Wishing you a wonderful day.
When I began card making several years ago I never imagined it would bring so many special people into my life. With each event I have attended those friendships have expanded. I have been adopted into a dear friend’s downline and will be attending a Copic Marker Boot Camp this next week with several of those gal pals.
This card was created for one of the women I met at our last gathering about a year ago. She celebrates her birthday today and can’t be with us next week. She will be missed. So this is a big shout out to Mary Anne to have an amazing day.
The Concord & 9th Birthday Basic Turnabout created the backdrop for this card. The colors are SU Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Lemon Lime Twist (Retired), and Pumpkin Pie. A cheery Fall like color palette.
The coordinating Concord & 9th dies created the balloon and sentiment.
Happy Birthday Mary Anne, I hope you are having a fabulous birthday weekend.
The Daisy Lane Bundle coordinates with last year’s Daisy Delight Bundle. I am participating in The Crafty Carrot Collective this month featuring this popular bundle. LOVE the projects so far and they inspired me to create this card.
This is a very simple and quick to create card. I stamped the fern stamp randomly with Pretty Peacock ink on the same color card stock. Using my Stitched Shapes dies and the largest square die I cut two squares in Whisper White and So Saffron card stock. The Daisy was stamped in So Saffron ink on the same color card stock, punched with the coordinating punches and then stacked with dimensionals to create the depth.
The ribbon is Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo where I substituted Linen Thread for the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread.
This photo is a quick reminder to carry over your design to the inside of the card as well.
I hope you are having a great week. Thanks for stopping by!
The Stampin’ Up! Scalloped Note Cards are great for some quick colorful cards to have in your stash.
The Balmy Blue card was inspired by Artisan Mikaela Titheridge #craftyoinkpen project. The feathers are snipped from the Free as a Bird DSP. The sentiment is from #WPlus9 So Very stamp set and coordinating die. I have had the stamp set and recently purchased the die. ♥
This fun fall card was inspired by a card from #Chase&Main as part of #StampinThroughtheCatalog on Instagram.
This Terracotta Tile Note Card was embossed using #Altenew Dotted Swirls Base Plate. I love the subtle texture this adds. The embellishment is a simple flower from SU To a Wild Rose Stamp Set and Coordinating Die. The vellum leaves are from the Leaf Punch.
My final note card was inspired by a project from Anne Marie Hile #stampinanne. I love her work and am so glad to see her creating again. I think this is my favorite.
In the end I created all 20 notes cards making 5 of each design. I did not add sentiments to 3 of the 4 so they can be used on the fly for birthday, sympathy, thinking of you, or anything in between. My only disappointment in these note cards is the weight of the paper. While perfect for the envelopes it is too thin for the cards therefore I added a piece of Whisper White card stock above the 3/4″ of DSP you see sticking out under the scallop edge. This provided the weight I wanted for the card.
