Hello, Autumn!

It's officially Autumn!  There is just something about this season that warms my heart.  I love snuggly sweaters, riding boots, and the warm, earthy colors of the season.  Those elements of fall style that I love transfer over into my card making.  I am in love with the new Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The warm rich colors of Rich Razzleberry and Delightful Dijon play off of the cooler tones in the Mint Macaron papers.  It's just so, so gorgeous - you have to see it for yourself.

One of my favorite items from the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog is the Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder.  It adds a subtle bit of metallic that gives your cards just that little something special that will make the recipient be really, really impressed.  (Only you and I will know how easy heat embossing is.)

The Acorny Thank You stamp set coordinates with the Acorn Builder punch for easy stamping.  No fussy cutting for us!  Well, I lied.  I did fussy cut the Thankful banner.  That's an easy one for fussy cutting though!  I layered all of the elements on top of each other with dimensionals to really give a more three dimensional look to the card. 

Thanks for looking at my card today!  I would love to hear your feedback in the comments section.  Please contact me if you have any questions about how to make this card!

The weather has been unseasonably cool  here in New Jersey and that inspired me to create this Autumn themed card. I was also inspired by the sketch posted this week on Splitcoaststampers for their weekly card sketch challenge.

I used my Stamp-a-majig to line up the leaf images in order to create the shadowed effect.

Card stock: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Starfruit,Very Vanilla
Designer Series Paper: Sweater Weather
Stamps: Magnificent Maple
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Summer Starfruit
Other: Crumb Cake 1/2" Seam Binding, Basic Pearls, Stampamajig, Dimensionals

6.  Color Me Christmas Stamp Set [131742 (w) $20.95, 131745 (c) $15.95]: Um, have you seen that reindeer wearing a sweater and scarf??? I don't think I need to say any more.

5. Witches' Brew Designer Washi Tape [132156 $4.95]: Have you tried washi tape yet?  I'm new to it too, but let me tell you - once you start using it, you won't want to stop.  It's so easy to embellish all of your paper crafting projects.  How easy is applying a piece of tape to paper?  Simple, right?  That's how easy it is to use washi.  Plus it's for Halloween! Spooooooky!

4. A Banner Christmas [130252 (w) $21.95, 130255 (c) $16.95]: This is a really, really cool Christmas set.  It has a very modern, stylish look to it.  Banners and chevrons are so hot right now, your cards will be super chic.  My favorite stamp?  HO3 just because it reminds me of scientific shorthand!

3. Silver 1/8" Ribbon [132137 $4.95]: Super shiny silver ribbon that adds sparkle to your cards without the mess of glitter. 

2. Winter Frost Specialty [132341 $12.95]: All of your favorite shades of aqua (Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Island Indigo) paired with cool Smoky Slate and silver foil make this paper wonderful for Christmas, Hanukah, and winter projects.
1. Festive Flurry Bundle [133284 (w) $54.95, 133285 (c) $46.95]: My favorite stamp set out of the whole holiday catalog.  Who doesn't love snowflakes.  They have a fun, geometric design to them which makes them really bold.  Cutting them out is a snap with the coordinating framelits.  You can purchase them in a bundle for a 15% discount.
