Autumn Gratitude

Happy Saturday!
Well, autumn has officially arrived. Yesterday was rainy all day, but today is a beautiful autumn day. I hope to soon go out and enjoy the day. SU-Only Challenges 28 Challenge, Fall Colours inspired me to create another autumn card and I once again reached for my Day of Gratitude stamp set. I also used a similar colour scheme from my previous autumn card. For the sketch I went to Just Add Ink's JAI 86 - A Sketch Challenge. I decided to keep my card clean and simple.

Here's the sketch:

And here's my card:

The details are:

CS: Very Vanilla, Old Olive
Stamp Set: Day of Gratitude
Ink: Cajun Craze, Old Olive, More Mustard
Tools: Decorative Label Punch

Have a great weekend!

Autumn is in the Air

Hi there,
It's been so long since my last post. I've really missed creating cards and posting them here, but the end of the summer was very hectic with family and getting my class ready for back to school. I'm getting into the swing of things with my new students. The weather is getting cooler and autumn is in the air. This weather gives me the inspiration to create an autumn card. For starters I went to Friday Mashup challenge #24: Autumn project using shades of yellow and orange. For the sketch I went to Pals Paper Arts: PPA111 - A Sketch Challenge. I knew I wanted to use my Days of Gratitude stamp set and the coordinating Autumn Spice DSP. I haven't used either the stamp set or the DSP often enough.
