I, for one, LOVE fall. So I was super excited when Shery at STAMPlorations said she was going to release an Autumn-themed stamp set because, if Fall is good then Fall cards are better. They can be SO beautiful with all their rich reds and warm yellows.
And that's exactly the kind of colors I wanted to pull in to my design, so I got out my Spectrum Noir reds and golds and set to work.
There are so many fun stamps in this Thankful for Autumn set!
Here's my final product. I used some graphic chevrons and some rustic-looking fruit crate paper along with some red hemp twine.
This card was inspired by the sketch over at the Sweet Sunday Sketch and am also sending it over to Addicted to Stamps - Autumn challenge.
Hey! Do you want to win this cute Autumn stamp set?! Well there is a GIVEAWAY! Just go stop by the STAMPlorations blog to see how you can win it!
While I'm at it - I might as well give you all a gentle reminder that you can still play along in the STAMPlorations September challenge (you can use ANY stamps to play along - it doesn't have to be STAMPlorations brand to win!)
We have a theme and a sketch. You can choose to use one or the other OR both!
For my reminder card, I chose just to focus on the music theme. I used some patterned paper that had the lyrics to Happy Birthday. I added some fun mixed media elements, like a crocheted doily, spray splatters, metal pieces and acetate sentiments.
I colored the daisy from the Bloom Sketches set with some scribbled on gelatos and smudged it around with my fingers. It's so pretty and joyful and I just love it. Sorry about the camera angle - you totally can't read the YOUR day sentiment fully. Woops!
This is going over to play along in the Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes challenge and Love to Create - Anything Mixed Media Goes.
Come play along with us! The STAMPlorations challenge is open until the end o' the month!
One last thing before I go - you probably have noticed a lack of crafty comments on my end (I feel so bad!) But it is a necessary evil as I am packing up my entire house for a move at the end of this month. Please send all your good thoughts, prayers and love because I don't want to be bald and I feel like I'm pulling out all my hair! I. HATE! Boxes! ;)
Thanks for your patience during this time!
