Wreaths speak of hospitality and warmth. A wreath is a welcome at the front door and can be hung year round with seasonal decorations. I love wreaths, and I especially like them on cards. I feel like they go before you; as the recipient opens the card the wreath conveys warmth and kindness.
That’s one reason I love the new Wishing You Well stamp set ~ the wreath is beautiful! For today’s card I’ve stamped the wreath using the Stamparatus. And I’ve stamped it repeatedly in different colors: first Crumb Cake, then Soft Suede. After that I went back in with an Aqua Painter and a bit of Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry ink and barely touched the little leaves with these two colors.
Behind the wreath is a panel of Pumpkin Pie card stock embossed with the new Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. After embossing, I roughed up the edges of the paper and curled the corners. Then I sponged on some of our Copper Shimmer Paint to give a distressed look.
This card was so much fun to make. I can’t wait until you can get all these products for yourself! Do you have your wish list going? September 5th is the first date customers can order from this fabulous 2018 Holiday Catalog. Do you have a catalog?

It’s time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge, and today’s card has a fall theme. I really do love fall, and I love to use fall colors. That’s why I chose the first row across in the challenge! Here’s this week’s board:
Sentiment – check; Fall Colors – check; Twine – check 🙂 And, I added a few leaves from Row 2 just for fun!
Leaves have so many shades. To get leaves to look at all realistic I like to watercolor and combine colors. For the leaves here, I used Crushed Curry and Peekaboo Peach inks with an Aqua Painter on Shimmery White paper. After the water dried I splattered the paper with Fresh Fig ink. Then the leaves were punched with the Leaf Punch.
The sentiment is cut from Cajun Craze card stock using the Lovely Words Thinlits Dies. It sits on a piece of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (love, love!). Underneath I tucked a strip of Fresh Fig card stock punched with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. And tying it all up in a knot is a thin section of Jute Twine pulled apart from the larger piece of thread.

My card today is a fun tri-fold card disguised as a regular card!
Who would know that this card unfolds with two more layers?
The card opens to reveal an inside full of pretty pumpkins from the beautiful Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.
This pumpkin panel lifts up to reveal the third section of the card.
For the inside, I used the die-cut circle from the front of the card and affixed a banner with a nice sentiment from the Basket of Wishes stamp set. This is a fun fold and it’s a little surprise for the one who opens it!
I have a template for you so that you can make this same card. It’s super easy! Start with an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock. The “X” below shows you the section you cut out. The dotted lines represent the places you will fold. Each section is 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2.” Easy, right?

It’s October and time for pumpkins! I love October, and Fall! Today I want to show you a simple way to make a pumpkin of any size.
All you need to make a pretty pumpkin is three ovals. You can die cut the ovals or punch the ovals with any size oval punch. Place two of the ovals to the back and one in the center on top, as shown above. I like to pull the tops together a little tighter than the bottom. For this pumpkin, I cut the ovals with the Stitched Shape Framelits.
This is a quick and easy way to make a pumpkin. Want a large pumpkin? Use large ovals. Small pumpkin? Use small ovals. It’s up to you!
Yep, it’s pumpkin spice latte season ~ yippee! Have you had one yet? A pumpkin spice latte, I mean. I’ve had two, one hot and one cold, and they were delicious!
My card today features the Merry Cafe stamp set in the Holiday Catalog. It coordinates with the Coffee Cups Framelits which I’ve also used on this card. These are such fun sets, I really love them! The cup is sitting on top of a layer of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. This is on my favorites list ~ it’s one of my favorite papers ever!
The beautiful Peekaboo Peach Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon ties it all up with a bow. This card really demonstrates fall for me, full of color and vibrancy and yummy tastes and smells 🙂
