Grateful for You


Hi there!

Once again, my beloved Summer has made way for Fall .

I’m doing my best to make my peace with it by trying to capture some of the glorious colors of Fall on my card for today. It’s hard not to love the rich reds, oranges, and yellows the season brings!

I started this card by die cutting all the pieces for the oak leaves and acorns and ink-blending them with several of the Pawsitively Saturated dye inks from Simon Says Stamp. These inks blend so beautifully! And the saturated formula is perfect for capturing those Fall colors. Here is the list of colors I used (links are included in the Supplies list below):

• Cherry
• Citrine
• Mandarin
• Pucker
• Cappuccino
• Pine
• Mocha

I decided to veer from my normal black sentiment and, instead, stamped my sentiment in Cappuccino. I love the softness this adds to the card!

I cut a simple panel for my card front about an inch smaller than my card base on all sides and arranged all my pieces. I adhered everything to the panel with liquid glue except one of the acorns and the sub-sentiment, which I popped up using foam adhesive.

Making this card reminded me of things I love about Fall…

How about you? Do you have a favorite season?

I hope you enjoyed this project and that you have a wonderfully creative day!

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!
