I’ve been a little quiet lately. I’ve been back at my mom’s house for ten days now and my sister and I are still going through the house getting it ready to sell. My mom and dad lived on a big piece of property and there are quite a few improvements that need to be made, inside the house and outside. I had movers come on Thursday to take my favorite pieces to my house (I wish I could have taken so much more). We’re making progress slowly but surely but it’s been a very emotional roller coaster. While I was home, I made a lot of cards to blog but some days, I find it hard to sit down at my computer. Anyway, I just wanted you to know why my posts have been sporadic.
Today’s card was created using the Rustic Crate stamp set. The Rustic Crate Bundle which includes the Rustic Crate stamp set and Rustic Crate Dies is also available but I didn’t use the dies for this particular card. I also used the Deckled Circles Dies, the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder, All About Autumn Designer Series Paper (currently not available but I have a substitute) and the So Sincere stamp set.
I started with a piece of Early Espresso cardstock for the base of my card. Then I embossed a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock using the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. Before adhering it to the front of the card, I cut a piece of All About Autumn Designer Series Paper and adhered it to the embossed Pumpkin Pie cardstock. All About Autumn Designer Series Paper is on backorder and is estimated to be available the week of October 23rd but I think a very nice substitute would be a piece of the Brights Designer Series Paper in Pumpkin Pie.
I used the Deckled Circles Dies to cut a circle out of Early Espresso cardstock and a smaller one out of Very Vanilla cardstock. I stamped the pumpkins and sunflowers in Memento Ink onto the Very Vanilla circle and then colored it with these Stampin’ Blends: Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Pecan Pie. I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso ink using the stamp set, So Sincere. I then adhered the Very Vanilla circle to the Early Espresso circle, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card.
To complete my card, I added three Neutrals Adhesive Backed Sequins to the front of the card and I added a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock to the front.
