Happy Fall


Did you see the big sale posted on Joan's Gardens today.  She wants to make sure you get your stamps ordered so you can participate in the 25th Challenge which will be Dec 2nd.  The grand prize in this challenge is 14 Heartfelt Creations stamps and 3 matching dies.  Wouldn't you love to win that!!!!! In order to enter that challenge, you will need to create a card using Heartfelt Creations stamps, so  today Joan announced a  30% off special sale on all the Fall HFC stamps she has in stock.  I know they are going fast, so if you haven't been over to her blog to read more about the 25th Challenge and this special sale, here is the Joan's Gardens link.

I have created another Autumn card using the Heartfelt Creations Open Falling Leaves and matching dies.  On a 5.5 inch square card, I stamped the  HFC Oak Leaf Background with Tim Holtz Distress ink. A piece of striped designer paper was attached over a solid design paper and both sides punched using a Martha Stewart border punch. Two leaves from the Open Falling Leaves stamp set were stamped with brown ink and colored using Twinkling H20’s. They were cut out with the matching dies. The greeting is from the All Seasons Tree stamp set. It was stamped and cut out with a deckle edge Nestie then sponged with Distress Ink. The two leaves were layered over the striped design paper and some Martha Stewart punched ferns were arranged around the top of the leaves. The greeting was placed over them using dimensional tape. A gold silk bow and autumn colored dew drops were added to complete the card.

Heartfelt Creations products used: HCPC 3332 Oak Leaf Background PreCut Set; HCPC 3334 Open Falling Leaves PreCut Set; HCD 707 Falling Leaves Diecuts; HCPC 3331 All Seasons Tree PreCut Set
