All About Autumn – A Grateful Heart

Happy Halloween!

In my daily travels, I’ve been noticing how beautiful the trees look displaying the colors of Autumn. Here in New Jersey, we’ve been enjoying the Fall colors at their peak. My inspiration for today’s card are the colorful leaves I see everywhere. I’m showcasing the Autumn Leaves Bundle and the Tartan Foil 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper.

If you look closely at the top Copper Clay layer, you can see the pretty tartan tone on tone pattern. The paper pack includes 6 sheets of double sided paper, two each of three designs. The colors featured in this Specialty Paper are Copper Clay, Pebbled Path, and Lost Lagoon. It’s part of the Online Exclusives. The details are below.

So, let’s make a card!

Parts & Pieces

  • The Copper Clay cardstock card base is 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ side.
  • The Basic White cardstock mat layer is 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.
  • The Copper Clay patterned paper top layer is 4″ x 5 1/4″.
  • I cut a Pretty Peacock cardstock strip 3/4″ x 5 1/4″. This is a “grounding layer” for the leaf elements.
  • The leaves are stamped with Wild Wheat, Copper Clay, and Pretty Peacock ink.
  • I die cut a few leaves using Pretty Peacock and Wild Wheat cardstock.
  • The layers are adhered with glue, and the leaves are attached with Dimensionals.
  • I thought it best not to embellish too much since I wanted to display the patterned paper.
  • The inside Basic White writing layer is 3 3/4″ x 5″.

This card was lots of fun to put together and I enjoyed putting these colors together. A nice Autumn combination!

So, cut a few cardstock layers, stamp and die cut some leaves, add a simple bow, and create something heartfelt to celebrate the Fall Season.

A Clean And Simple Grateful Heart

I always enjoyed creating a CAS card (Clean and Simple). A CAS design should have lots of white space, few layers, and little or no embellishments. There are no limits on how you can use your stamps, ink, paper, and dies to create a CAS project.

Here’s how I put mine together.

  • The Very Vanilla card base is 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, and scored at 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ side.
  • The Very Vanilla card front layer is 4″ x 5 1/4″. I used one of the larger Stitched With Whimsy Dies to create a “stitched” outline on this layer.
  • The leaves are die cut from the Autumn Leaves Dies using the All About Autumn Designer Series Paper.
  • I stamped the sentiment with Copper Clay ink.
  • For a little shine, I scattered a few Gold Festive Pearls.
  • I added a strip of patterned paper to the bottom of the inside of the card, and stamped one of the leaf vein images from the Autumn Leaves stamp set.

A CAS card is quick and easy, and the simplicity of the design is always pretty.

So, find a great border die, add a few die cut images, a sentiment, pop the layer up on Dimensionals, and create a quick and easy CAS card.

… the only limitation is your imagination!

An Autumn Leaves Birthday

When I first saw this leaf pattern in the All About Autumn Designer Series Paper, I knew I would have to to something with it. I loved the pink leaves mixed with the golden browns. Today’s card celebrates the upcoming Fall Season, but it’s a birthday card. I have quite a few Fall birthdays coming up, and this design will work perfectly.

All of the products used here are from the All About Autumn Suite of products that is featured in the upcoming September – December 2023 Mini Catalog. The launch date is just about a week away. Yay!

Today’s Card Parts & Pieces

  • There are a bit more parts and pieces than my last few cards, but be assured that this is a fun design that goes together quickly.
  • I cut a Pebbled Path cardstock card base 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored it at 5 1/2″.
  • The leaf patterned paper layer covers the card front. It measures 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.
  • I die cut the two offset cardstock layers using one of the Deckled Edge Rectangle Dies. The Pebbled Path and Bubble Bath cardstock layers measure about 2 1/2″ x 4″.
  • The leaf and branch elements are die cuts from the Autumn Leaves Bundle.
  • I used my sponge dauber and Pebbled Path ink to ink the edges of the layers and elements.
  • The sentiment (from the Autumn Leaves Bundle) is stamped with Pebbled Path ink.
  • I added a large bow with some Sweet Sorbet Metallic Woven Ribbon (Annual Catalog).
  • This design also called for a few Adheaive Backed Speckled Dots. They’re part of the All About Autumn Suite.
  • The sentiment layer and elements are attached with Dimensionsls.

I found this simple birthday sentiment in the Something Fancy stamp set (Annual Catalog).

So, it’s almost time to get your hands on the All About Autumn Suite and create beautiful cards to celebrate the beautiful Fall Season and any September, October, and November birthdays on your list.

A Few More Autumn Leaves

Hello! I wish you a happy day! I’m truly thankful you stopped by. Today’s card is my second Sneak Peek of the Autumn Leaves Dies. They’re part of the All About Autumn Product Suite I showcased in my last post. You can see the entire Suite Collection here.

In the Autumn Leaves Dies, there are two dies that I refer to as “filler dies”. These dies will give you a cut embossed look and add amazing texture to the simplest of projects. I thought I would show you how I used them in today’s post.

Today’s Card Pieces & Parts

  • There isn’t much to this CAS card. (CAS is an acronym for Clean And Simple). There’s lots of white space on this design, and few layers and embellishments. It meets all of the “CAS” qualifications.
  • Take a look at the left side of the Very Vanilla layer in the photo above.
  • I created a textured design using two of he dies from the Augumn Leaves Dies.
  • I placed the longer die along the left edge of the card layer, then placed the smaller die along the right edge of the long die about an inch down from the top. With both dies secured to the layer using low tack tape, I ran it through my die cutting machine.
  • Next, using the smaller die, I repeated the same process as above, making sure the bottom of the die was about an inch from the bottom of the longer die cut edge.
  • I wanted a little more texture in the center of my layer, so I placed the smaller die on the edge of the last “row” and centered it.
  • I created a pattern of texture that would anchor the die cut leaves.
  • You can come up with your own design for these dies, and know that they are fun to use and will surely spark your creativity.
  • The leaves are die cut using the small leaf dies. I used the All About Autumn foiled Designer Series Paper to die cut the leaves.

All of the product I used to make this card are from the All About Autumn Suite. It will be available for customers on September 6th with the launch of the new September-December, 2023 Mini Catalog.

So, cut a card base layer, add some amazing texture, a few elements and an embellishment or two, and create something Clean and Simple.
