Don’t you just love the colors of Autumn?! I do! And I love coloring floral images with yellow and orange to make a fall bouquet!
I stamped out one of the bouquets from the Pinkfresh Studio Fancy Blooms stamp set and used Copic markers to color in the image. I used R08, YR09, and YR07 for the orange flower. The yellow flower I used YR04, Y17, and Y15. The leaves are BG78 and BG75 and the brown sprigs are E79 and E74.
I cut out a few of my favorite patterns from the Lawn Fawn Fall Knit Picky paper pad with stitched dies and adhered them to a card front. I trimmed out my colored bouquet and added it to the stitched oval with foam squares. I stamped the sentiment from the Sunny Studio Stamps Beautiful Autumn stamp set onto a strip of patterned paper with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink and added it on top of my bouquet.
I added a bit of shimmer to my bouquet with Liquid Pixie Dust to finish the card! Thanks for stopping by today!
Fall is my favorite season! Living in Florida it’s not because of the weather, although if you’ve lived in Florida long enough you do notice a change in the air but it just doesn’t qualify as a season for us. What I love about Fall are the decorations, the colors, the changing leaves (pictures mostly), the flavors and for me personally the reminder that the holidays are on the way.
While making this card I remember being downright giddy because when it comes to kid’s clothing ALL colors come in to play! Bright, fun, funky and I was so excited to get to work on these images. Recently when it’s time to color people images I make a concerted effort to not make them all the same. I am intimidated when it comes to coloring different ethnicities but I have a big desire to do so. That of course means practice, practice, practice and being brave when choosing colors I may not be used to blending. So I held my breath just a bit and stepped out of my comfort zone and I am so glad I did!
I love this Fall Kiddos stamp set from Sunny Studio, this is the second card and post I am doing with this set, really great images! These kids look like they are just having the most fun day and exude happiness. I cannot wait to send this card to someone I love. I’ve been a bit chatty in this post so I will give you a quick run down for what I did with this card:
used Doodlebug Design Flea Market 6×6 paper pad for background. The flowered pattern is 5 1/4″ x 3 1/2″, the cloud paper is 5 1/4″ x 1 1/2″, and the 2 strips of orange paper with the leaves pattern on it is 5 1/4″ x 1/2″, the card base I put it on and what became the frame for this little scene is 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored and folded at 5 1/2″ to create this landscape card
Hi! Can I just say how EXCITED I am that’s it’s socially acceptable to create and send fall themed cards?! Haha! I feel like everyone swoons over summer and beaches and now it’s my time! YAY! Sit back and relax as the Scrapping for Less design team shares all about fall projects this month!
I die cut the Foursquare Backdrop die from Lawn Fawn from four patterns of paper in the Lawn Fawn Fall Knit Picky paper pad as well as white cardstock for the frame. I glued the white frame to an A2 card and puzzle pieced in the patterned paper rectangles.
I wanted to use the Sticko Autumn Pumpkin stickers as my focal point images, but I’m just not fond of the look of stickers stuck onto a card. I love the ease of stickers! No coloring, shading and depth is already there … but I always feel like there’s something missing. And that something is a white border! So I added a bunch of the Autumn Pumpkin stickers onto white cardstock and trimmed around them just like I would with a stamped image and adhered them to my card.
Who doesn’t like critters? One of my most favorite type of cards to make are cute little critter cards. Well this month we have some fantastic cute critters as exotic animals! Join in the hop and see what wonderful inspiration our design team and guest designers have brought to you today. You will find this month’s selections on the subscription page. Lots of extra goodies as well too on the a la carte page.
I combined the beautiful patterned papers for my layers on this card… the papers in this card kit are amazing!! I especially love the ones in this collection! I stamped and colored my little camper using the following Copic markers ~ B0000, B00, B24, B52, RV10, RV21, N0, N2, N4, N7, and Y00. To finish off the card I added a few black rhinestones… they look like planets in the background!
I just love how the blues in the camper help the blues in the background paper to pop!! Glamping under the stars could definitely be my happy place… especially with this sweet little camper!!

Good Morning and Happy Thursday fellow crafters! Katie here from 2CrafyKaties to share with you a card using Sunny Studio Stamps “Summer Picnic” and Echo Park’s 6x6 “Good Day Sunshine” paper pad! This month’s theme uses products that focus on celebrating the outdoors, nature, camping, and being under the stars!
Here is what I created:
I love sketches! I have a few favorites that I check out every week. As I was getting ready to create this card, I had no idea what I was going to make. Sketches to the rescue! I started (and finished) with Sketch Saturday #572!
Be sure to check out the video for all the details HERE!
I started out by using the background stamp on the Tim Holtz Travel Platform with Hero Arts Inks in Ombre Mint to Green, Soft Purple, Soft Pool, Pool, and Deep Ocean and layered the colors stamping multiple times.
Next, I used the solid tree stamp in the Critter Campout set to create a tree line and then used the Scan N Cut DX to cut the image out with black cardstock. I used a piece of blue mulberry and blue vellum from Die Cuts with A View, they were old mat stacks I had in my stash, and a piece of green cardstock I cut them down to fit within the scene and layered the vellum over the mulberry. I cut out a border on the green cardstock for the border of the lake and grass and I stamped the grass outline with Lucky Clover Distress Oxide ink all over. I cut the sky background down to 5 1/4 in. X 4 in. and glued all of the pieces down to create the scene.
I colored a couple of the critters and the campfire from the stamp set with Studio 71 markers and used the Scan N Cut to cut them out. Then glued them onto the scene. I glued the panel to a black card base. I used two of the stickers from the Paper House “At the Lake” sticker set for the sentiment on the inside and front panel. To finish it off I used the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen on all of the stars in the sky and then to create a pooling effect in the water.

Here is what I created:
I was once again inspired by a Jennifer McGuire video. This video is about “Bridge Cards.” This is a free-standing card that can display a scene or a message/sentiment. I used a cloud die to create a cloud like stencil and I used the Ranger Distress ink “Stormy Sky” to created clouds on the card base. I had pre-stamped my images and cut them out with my Brother Scan n’ Cut. After the card base was finished, I used the “Peeled Paint” Ranger Distress ink to create a grassy area. I colored all my images with copic markers (listed below) and then assembled.

Good Morning all my Crafty Friends! For our introductory paragraph how about a history lesson on the 4 elements of our kit? As we delve into Myths and Legends this month let’s take a closer look at these creatures.
According to Wikipedia on Nessie:
n Scottish folklore, the Loch Ness Monster or Nessie is a creature said to inhabit Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. It is often described as large in size with a long neck and one or more humps protruding from the water. Popular interest and belief in the creature has varied since it was brought to worldwide attention in 1933. Evidence of its existence is anecdotal, with a few disputed photographs and sonar readings. The scientific community regards the Loch Ness Monster as a phenomenon without biological basis, explaining sightings as hoaxes, wishful thinking, and the misidentification of mundane objects.
According to the Ancient History Encyclopedia on the legendary Pegasus:
Pegasus (or Pegasos) is a winged-horse from Greek mythology which was fathered by Poseidon and was born from the severed neck of the gorgon Medusa, slain by Perseus.
Most of us can’t see fairies. They live in a parallel universe called the “realm of the fey.” According to legend, fairies went into hiding to avoid us because … well, we invaded their lands, so what else could they do?
As we modernized the world with electricity, built roads and cities, and cut down trees, the fairies were forced to “go underground” and hide in caves, burrows, underwater fortresses, and finally into the spirit world.
According to Wikipedia on Gnomes:
A gnome /noʊm/ is a diminutive spirit in Renaissance magic and alchemy, first introduced by Paracelsus in the 16th century and later adopted by more recent authors including those of modern fantasy literature. Its characteristics have been reinterpreted to suit the needs of various story tellers, but it is typically said to be a small humanoid that lives underground.
