Autumn Blessings

** 10/8/18 Top 3 Pick at Always Fun Challenges!  **
** 10/11/18 Top 3 Pick at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog! **

Hi everyone! Happy Monday and it’s already October 1st! A new challenge is live this morning over Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #114 – Fall Back! We’re being sponsored this month by the amazing CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and we’d love to see a Fall project which could include Fall, Autumn, Thanksgiving and/or Halloween! I created a pretty Autumn card using the gorgeous Autumn Blessings Stamps and Acorn Fri-Dies from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!


Fall is my favorite season and it was totally easy finding Fall colored paper to go with the cardstock, stamps and dies. Everything just went together seamlessly. I cut a tag and embossed the sentiment on it, and then cut all the leaves in pairs (two of each color) and arranged them on/under the tag. I love corrugated paper so I cut a strip of that, and then the final touch were a few gemstones.


I decorated the inside panel with a leftover strip of paper from the front and stamped a continuation of the sentiment on the inside.


Here’s one final angled shot to show the dimension. I just love how this turned out!

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
