Hello Autumn

Monday, August 18, 2014

Hi there! In an effort to stay ahead this year I got out my autumn project box while crafting with my sister-in-law and niece last week. Autumn is my favorite season so I am very excited to share my cards with you today!

This first card started my obsession over the Paper Studios leaf embossing folder. I paired the orange embossed card stock and orange and white chevron paper together to create my background. On top of that I place a strip of burnt orange card stock. I die cut a piece of cream card stock and stamped a pumpkin and the sentiment.

I loved making this card even though it's pretty simple. The cool thing about it is that my sister-in-law pointed out to me that I stamped two pumpkins and the sentiments says "When I count my blessings I count you twice". I wasn't thinking about that, and I love when things work out that way.

This card continued my obsession with the leaf embossing folder as I used it on the red card stock I used for the background. For a layered effect I cut a piece of kraft card stock a little bit wider than the leaf patterned paper. Atop that I die cut a scalloped circle in burnt orange and stamped a border and sentiment on a cream circle. 

This card is a bit different than many of my other cards but I think it came out cute. The background is kraft card stock with autumn plaid paper on top and orange paper that I punched leaves out of on the bottom. I adhered some of the punched out leaves and acorns to the plaid paper. I stamped the sentiment in orange ink onto cream card stock and rounded the corners. I adhered that to the plaid background and added an orange glitter strip to finish my card. 

This card is one of my favorites that I have ever done. I did a layered background with a piece of orange plaid paper over orange card stock. A leaf embossed piece of orange card stock over a piece of burnt orange card stock creates a second layer on the left side of the card. I stamped Happy Thanksgiving on a strip of cream card stock and adhered an orange gem on either side of the sentiment. 

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed looking at my cards as much I loved making them!

  1. These are delightful Jenelle. Love the leaf embossing folder. It's the perfect scale for the pumpkins in fall elegance.

  2. All of your fall cards are beautiful, but I especially like the one with the two stamped pumpkins. It is so simple, yet elegant. Great job!
