Pumpkin Is The Spice of Life All Occasion Card

Hello and welcome!
It's a freezing, icy, sleeting day here. A good time to be indoors and crafting. 
I have a coffee lovers card to show you today. I'm a huge fan of pumpkin spice lattes, but since I'm on an anti-inflammatory diet I can't drink the traditional ones that the cafes make. I sure am missing that part of this pumpkin season, I can tell you! To ease the pain, I made a pumpkin spice latte card instead using the Carta Bella Hello Fall kit I purchased at Scrapbook Super Station.

I love the design of this card... so much fun!

The papers are loaded with pumpkins, and of course there's that lovely take-out cup. I added a bit of orange glitter paper and a few sequins for shine, plus some Tim Holtz Alterations Thinlits tiny fall leaves and an I Am Roses bloom.

Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Collors of Fall All Occasion Card

Hello sweet friends!
Just got back home from a doctor's appointment and a stop at our local diner for an early dinner date with my sweetheart. It's really looking like a storm. Most of the leaves are down here, but we saw some pretty ones up north earlier today. So I'm assuming that this rain will bring any hangers-on down as well.

My card for today is another of the Carta Bella Hello Fall collection. The base was cut with the Sizzix Framelits Circle Flip-its Die Set. It came in the kit I purchased from Scrapbook Super Station. Love the ease of these kits.

I did add a die-cut made with gold glitter paper from Hobby Lobby and Spellbinders Scalloped Circles dies. Always need that extra touch that says this is my card.

Have a fantastic day, my friends, and thanks for stopping by!

Thankful For You Fall Card

Hello! Welcome to my blog on this Fall Saturday morning!
The Penmaker is anticipating lots of leaf mulching if the weather holds. What are you planning for the day?

My Carta Bella Hello Fall collection card is a more of a Thanksgiving themed one. I just love the patterns on these papers... Fall trees and leaves... what can be prettier? Maybe a little orange glitter and golden gems? Whatever the mix, I really am happy to have purchased this kit. (Here)

I have just two more to finish up, then I'm on to something else.
Thanks for stopping by!

Fall Is In The Air Card

Hi there and Happy Friday!
I've put together another Hello Fall card using the Carta Bella collection kit I purchased at Scrapbook Super Station. I can tell you I'm having a ball making these cards. I just sit back and follow their instructions, but I add a few of my own touches.

On this card I added an additional layer with some Tim Holtz Metallic Kraft Cardstock. This is the older pack that came in the 12x12 size and had bronze in the mix. That's the color I used here. It gave the card a little more warmth and stability.

Also I used this yellow stitched ribbon instead of the darker one suggested. I love the brightness it brings to the overall look.

I hope you have a fantastic weekend and can get in some crafting time. I'm going to try to work in one of my art journals, but who knows how that will turn out. It's been a long while since I pulled any of them out. We will see!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Fall All Occasion Card

Hello friends and welcome!
We're having a warm rainy Fall day. Strange the way our temperatures have been up and down this season. It's Halloween... it should be cold. Nevertheless I'm still making Fall cards. Lots of them, using my Carta Bella Hello Fall kit from Scrapbook Super Station

This card called for several die-cuts. This main one is Avery Elle's Elle-Ments Horizontal Stripes. It
was part of the pre-cut kit contents, but I really think I need to purchase the die. I can think of several cool ways to use it.

I added a circle layer under this die-cut that came in the Ephemera pack, then I topped them with some foliage. For these I used Tim Holtz Thinlits Fall Foliage and Festive Greens. To make the foliage I took a sheet of 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Classic Crest cardstock and smooshed it onto a selection of Distress Inks... Rusty Hinge, Carved Pumpkin, and Wild Honey... that I had misted with water, drying with my heat tool between applications.

The ribbon, burlap string, and tiny acorn charm all came in the kit, as well as the patterned papers and the kraft A2 size card base. The envelope was included too.

Have a great day and I'll be back soon with more Fall cards.
Thanks for stopping by.

Adelaide's Fall Birthday Card

Hello sweet friends and welcome!
Today I have a birthday card to share that I made using the Carta Bella Hello Fall collection that I purchased as a kit from Scrapbook Super Station. I changed up this card slightly to make it a birthday card for granddaughter Adelaide, who turns five today.
Happy Birthday Sweetheart!!!

I just love the Fall... everything about it. I don't even mind all the rain. It reminds me of the years the Penmaker and I would go to New England in October to see the gorgeous foliage turning color. It always seemed to rain when we went. Have you ever noticed how beautiful a cloudy Fall sky looks when it's about to rain? I digress. I get carried away on the beauties of Fall.

Back to Adelaide's card... an A2 card with lots of dimension. I added an orange organza bow made from ribbon purchased from Joanns at 60% off (watch for their sales on ribbon... fabulous!) and an orange paper flower that came in the kit. The Happy Birthday sentiment was stamped using Clearly Besotted's Many Mini Messages from Simon Says Stamp and Jet Black Archival Ink from Ranger onto a strip of the patterned paper I cut with a fishtail end.

For bling, because Adelaide loves a little glitz, I glued on a few orange sequins.

Have a wonderful day, Adelaide, and all of you, as well!
Thanks for stopping by!

Leaves Are Falling, Autumn Is Calling Card

Hello and welcome!
I've been taking a little break from crafting, but that never seems to last. Those papers and dies call to me from my craft room and draw me back. 

I made a simple A2 card using a kraft cardstock base and materials from a Scrapbook Super Station kit that I believe is discontinued. The collection is Carta Bella's Hello Fall... a lovely set of fall patterned papers and ephemera.

I added in some DCWV orange glitter paper as a mat for some pizzaz, and edged everything in Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. The burlap string bow is in orange and it's tied to a dainty silver plated leaf charm that came in the kit. The flowers are by I Am Roses, except for the one brown rosebud which was part of the kit contents.

I hope you're having a fantastic week.
Thanks for stopping by!
