I am calling it! Technically, if you were to go ‘by the books’ it is not ‘quite’ Autumn yet, but I am ready to switch on Autumn in my house!
Fall is my most favouritist season. I LOVE IT! I love the smell, the food, the warmth, the colours, the EVERYTHING! And every year, I get super excited about Autumn. We also decorate our mantle with lots of Autumnal elements – just to bring the fantastic fall-ness inside!
So I simply had to make a Fall card on this week’s Come Craft With Me!
I used two stamp sets from Lawn Fawn – ‘Jumping for Joy’ and ‘Yay, Kites’ and mixed these with some dies from Mama Elephant. I love the sweet scalloped edge on this All Prettied Up die.
I am still suffering from some RSI (Repetitive Strain injury) so I didn’t want to be doing too much ink blending…. but i simply couldn’t do ANY! Just a little for the background! I used my distress inks with a foam applicator.
The fox is super cute. I love him. I coloured him and the leaves with my copic markers, as well as a few images for the inside of my card. Here’s a peek.
Because my card base was a dark colour, I layered on a piece of white card, cut with the Outside In stitched rectangle dies, also from Lawn Fawn.
I am off to take a big box out of the attic, so I can decorate my mantel and get into the spirit of Autumn….. and maybe I will pick up a cheeky Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks! Why not!
Have a great day!
