Fall is soon coming

I'm starting to get into my fall/winter mode. I'm about done with summer, and ready to move on to halloween, the fall colors of thanksgiving, and the fun colors of christmas. This was a color challenge that I participated in, that really got me into the fall color mood.

I used Kraft, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, and More Mustard Cardstock. My circle cutter came in handy on this card, and I cut a 5" circle out of Chocolate Chip cardstock and a 4 3/4" circle out of the More Mustard cardstock. I adhered these to the card, and then cut off the edge of the circles to line up with the card.

For the stamped images, I used the Paradise stamp set, and used Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, and Sahara Sand ink to stamp each image. I cut out each image to a 1 1/2" circle, and then used Kraft cardstock to cut a circle that was 1 3/4" to place behind each image. The three circle's were adhered to the card using Stampin Dimensionals.

The 'thank you' sentiment came from the All Holidays stamp set. The thank you was stamped on very vanilla card stock, and then cut out with the oval punch. The same oval punch was used to cut out an oval in Chocolate Chip and More Mustard cardstock, and then the ovals were layered. I toped the card off with a mini library clip with hemp twine tied to it. The sentiment was also adhered to the card with Stampin Dimensionals.


Welcome to my site!!

I recently moved to Arizona a couple months ago, and am very happily settling into a new career. I was introduced to stamping over 10 years ago. I've always been into crafts, and picked back up with stamping a couple years ago. I love that I finally have the time to dedicate to my crafts, and that I'm able to share my ideas with everyone. I've seen myself grow in my creativity over the past couple years, and to those who say that they are not creative - don't believe it. Anyone can do this, and creativity doesn't happen overnight, it evolves as you learn more and more about the art of stamping. My husband is incredibly supportive as I put more time into my stamp designs and my scrapbooking.
