On Wednesday I told you how it was going to get cold here in Nashville. Well, unfortunately, the weather people were right. It is downright chilly here with daytime temperatures in the 40s and night in the 20s!! Of course, it is not as bad and it could get in Northern New York so I am not really complaining. The weather finally did put me in a Fall mood, which is a good thing. Thanksgiving is only a week away and somehow it just wouldn’t be right to have it in the 70s.
I wanted to make a card using Fall colors but I did not have any Designer Series Paper with those colors on hand so I decided I would make my own. I used the stamp set called Soft Seedlings to make this card. As a side note, I did mention last summer that the seedlings (also known as helicopters) fell in the spring and not the fall. Therefore, when they fell they were bright green. Then they would sit for a few days and would turn light brown. This is when the 800,000 chipmunks in Northern New York would come out and attack our deck shoving as many of the seeds into their cheeks as they could. I didn’t mind that they did this. I just wish they would have cleaned up after themselves and taken the outside of the seed with them.
Anyway, I stamped the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight ink randomly on a piece of Basic White card stock. Then I used the Stitched Rectangle dies to cut the card stock into a smaller size. I layered that onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock and a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock that I also cut out using the Stitched Rectangle die.
Lastly, I added a sentiment from the PinkFresh stamp set.
This is sooooo pretty. What a lovely color combo and use of that stamp set. Indeed, good that you will not be in New York this weekend!!!
That is gorgeous, Susan! (I think I say that every time.) I love those colors. The Cherry Cobbler is perfect with the yellows and orange. Loved the chipmunk story – and every time I hear a weather report from Northern NY, I think about you and how happy you must be not to have to deal with all that snow!
