This Happy Harvest Card features two stamp sets by Lawn Fawn. The Happy Harvest stamp set and the Let's Go Nuts stamp set (squirrel). All images were stamped with Memento black ink and colored with Copic markers. The blue sky was made using Tumbled Glass distress ink and the ink smooshing technique. A frame was die cut using a piece of Lawn Fawn patterned paper and an Avery Elle reverse pinked die. Everything was adhered flat for easy shipping, although I may keep this one for myself. Well, that about sums it up. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day.

While in my craft room yesterday I knocked over a stack of paper and found a inky background paper I made with distress inks a few years back. So, I decided before I lose it again that I would use it. It's layered behind a birch tree die cut using a die from Simon Says Stamp (S655). The images are from the Garden Friends stamp set by Hello Bluebird, except for the leaves they were in my stash of extras. All the images were colored with Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. A hello fall sentiment (retired Stampin' Up!) was added and I inked some antique linen distress ink around the edges. That's it! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!🍂
This Bluebird Fall Card is entered into the following challenges: CCEE Stampers (Use a Mushroom), Crafty Gals Corner (Hello Fall!), Creative Knockouts (Wings and Things or Furry Friends) and Simon Says Stamp (Lots of Layers).

Good day! I think Halloween cards that glow in the dark are extra fun. So, I cut out the Spooky word die with glow in the dark paper. This Glowing Spooky Card is a mini slimline design which is 3.5" x 6". The owl and the ghost images are from the retired stamp set by Newton's Nook called Boo Hoo. Using the flying bats stencil by Newton's Nook with black distress ink and gray cardstock for the background. A tombstone from the Halloween Party stamp set by Hello Bluebird was added along with some black die cut grass and that's it. Everything was adhered flat for easy shipping. This was a pretty easy card, so I plan on making multiples for family and friends. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!🦇

Hello! The official start to fall is only 8 days away. That makes me happy! To add another fall card to my stash, I used this weeks sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This weeks sketch is designed by Melissa Craig and I made my card a mini slimline design (3.5" x 6"). First, I picked out my paper from the Welcome Autumn paper pad by Carta Bella and then decided on the accent colors. After stamping and adhering my sentiment by Impression Obsession, I felt the card needed something else. Then I remembered these embossed leaves that have been in my stash of extras since 2016 when I made this Sympathy Card. It was time they made it onto a card and this was the perfect Fall Card for them. Some copper metallic thread was added and that's it. We would love for you to play along with the sketch this week.
