Happy Fall

I love this time of the year when the leaves are beginning to change color and it's cool enough to have to wear a sweat shirt! It was actually cold enough one night this week to have our first fire in our fireplace. :-)

Creating cards for Thanksgiving is another thing I like about this season. Here are a couple of Thanksgiving cards I made.

I created the pumpkin card for a challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. We were suppose to paper piece something on our card. I used a piece of scrap DP and stamped my Stampabilities pumpkin on to it, cut it out, glued it onto the white CS where my original pumpkin was stamped and colored the stem with copics. I used some ribbon I'd purchased last year and the Cuttlebug swirls folder to give it the feel of leaves blowing around. I really like the look of this CAS (clean and simple) card.

The leaf stamp is from the $ bin at JoAnns and the sentiment is from an unknown set I've had for a long time. I stamped the leaves in SU Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip inks, then cut them out. I stamped the pumpkin CS with the leaf stamp to make my own designer paper and added chocolate chip CS for a border and then the large square brad next to the sentiment. You can see the small leaf border on the inside of the card - I think it just adds a little something!

Well I think I'll go stamp some more!!

Until next time, shelia
