Let me interrupt you for a minute to showcase my project! I created a clean and simple ‘Fall thanks’ card with a whimsical feel using sentiments from the Sayings & Sentiments and the Kind Words stamp sets and bright Fall-colored cardstock. I’m loving CAS these days!


I’m, by no means, an artist but I did make my own pumpkins! I have to admit, I was a little concerned at first, lol, but once I got them put together, I loved them! I hand-cut the pieces from different orange and green cardstock scraps and inked them in Rich Cocoa ink. I drew whimsical highlights on all the pieces with a rich Cocoa marker and put the pumpkins together. I stamped the simple sentiment from the Sayings & Sentiments stamp set in the Rich cocoa ink in the lower right corner then adhered a dark brown cardstock strip just above it. I adhered the pumpkins and added a few dots of Crystal Drops to finish off the front.


The inside sentiment is from the Kind Words stamp set, also stamped in the Rich Cocoa ink. All in all, I’m pretty pleased with how this turned out! Both of these sentiment stamp sets are pretty amazing and would be a wonderful addition to anyone’s stash!


Thanks for allowing me to share my project! I’m the last stop on the hop so be sure you now head back over to the Paper Wings Productions blog to let us know you’ve completed the hop!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
