Autumn Birthday Wishes

Hi there!

Autumn has officially arrived! The evenings are getting cooler, and daylight is getting shorter. I’m a little sad to see Summer go so soon, but I do love sweater weather!

My card today is inspired by the colors of Fall – yellows and oranges and rusty reds. I used the Taylored Expressions Autumn Array coloring/layering stencils to create this card and I think it is just gorgeous! It was super easy to use thanks to the alignment markers on the stencils – all I needed to do was find the right colors to make it come to life.

I hot foiled the sentiment on this card using my Spellbinders Glimmer machine and the rose gold foil that came with it. I’m still getting used to using the hot foil but I absolutely love the added touch of foil on my cards so I’m sure you will see more foiled designs from me coming soon.

I think this card turned out lovely and will be a perfect birthday card for my mom, whose birthday was yesterday.

What do you think? Do you love the Fall colors?

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
