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!
