Hello friends!

I’m starting my post with a question.   Do you enjoy creating with die cut images?  There are times when I don’t want to open an ink pad, then there are times I don’t want to slide over to my die cutting machine. Of course, there is no right answer. It depends…

Today’s card is a quick and easy, clean and simple Fall themed card to send some well wishes.  It’s a mix of patterned paper, die cuts and a sentiment stamp and you can complete it quickly.

Here’s the  mix:  

  • The Detailed Pumpkin Dies cut all three pumpkins.
  • For some texture, the large Crushed Curry pumpkin is embossed with the Bark Embossing Folder.
  • With a Sponge Dauber and Basic Black ink, I inked the edge of the pumpkin to give it a little lift.
  • The center pumpkin die cut is the polka dot pattern from the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper. The polka dots are bold, randomly placed, and have a whimsical look.
  • The polka dot card base layer is more of a traditional polka dot pattern since the polka dots are linear. This patterned paper is part of the Beautifully Penned Sale-A-Brationo DSP.  It’s FREE!
  • The barnyard fence is from the Sheep Dies which are also FREE! with a qualifying Sale-A-Bration purchase.
  • And my last and final mixer is the sentiment stamp. I like the way the font matched this simple design. It’s from the Season’s Blessings stamp set which is in the Annual Catalog.

Maybe you have every product I mentioned today in your paper crafting collection, but if you don’t you can re-create this design using products you have. That’s what makes the creative process both fun and personal.

So, find a few fun dies, add some fun patterned paper and create something quick and easy to send well wishes.

...the only limitation is your imagination!
