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!
