Happy Fall

Good Saturday morning. Although I do Christmas cards throughout the year, it still seems odd to be doing a card with an autumnal theme as if I am wishing the summer away. Even though it's been hotter than you know what, I still love summer and have no desire for it to move on. Ask me again later on in the month and I might have changed my mind though! I am submitting this card for the current Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge with a theme of Orchard and it also means I have one more of my Lawn Fawn sets out of the "new" box.

I stamped the tree trunk from the Lawn Fawn Sweater Weather stamp set with Dark Chocolate ink, the leaves with Potter's Clay, Peanut Brittle and Catkin inks and the apples with Wild Cherry. I then cut out with the matching dies from the Sweater Weather Lawn Cuts. I stamped the small leaves background image with Morocco ink onto a rectangle cut with a Lil Inker Designs stitched mat. All images were then attached with craft foam. The sentiment was stamped onto Tangy Orange cardstock with Versamark ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. The image piece was attached to a patterned paper background.

Products: Lawn Fawn stamps, dies and dp, PTI and MFT cs, Lil Inker Designs and MFT die, Simon Says inks, Memento inks, MFT ink

I am doing a bit more crafting these days (beyond my design team work) as I've been physically limited to what I can do elsewhere. I suppose there is a bright side to everything if you look for it.


  1. That is the cutest tree! Love the colors and the leaves and apples under the tree. Thanks for joining us at the Curtain Call Challenge.

  2. This is really cute!! I will have to give that set a second look after seeing your card. It does seem a little early for fall cards, but it's coming. The mornings have been cooler here.

  3. Beautiful card Nancy. Love the sweet tree with the leaves and apples. Thank you for playing along with us at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.

  4. Hi Nancy! Congrats on your win at Curtain Call ... congrats to ME for finding your wonderful blog! My first breath-taken visit was an hour-long. I am in LOve with your Purple Onion cards! You DO know how to layer and put those patterned papers together - I am in awe. Thanks so very much for the inspiration...
