I'm Thankful For My Family/Autumn Blessings

Good Morning Everyone...Happy Monday! I know this sounds crazy but I love Mondays, (second only to Fridays though) but it sets the stage for the rest of the week!

Here's a couple of Autumn cards, both using Cutting Cafe Printable Stamp...Of course! I had so much fun making these and Regina makes it so easy! For this 1st one, I used the Bountiful Blessings and the Thankful for My Family from the Autumn Days Printable Stamp Set that I re sized and re colored then cut with a circle/scallop Nestibility, pierced the scallops with a paper piercer and pop dotted the layers. I attached a backward L shape to the background and added ribbon. The leaves were cut and inked with Cuttlebug Fall Leaves set that I put an eyelet on and attached it using craft yarn. The "dots" in the corner were cut with the Cuttlebug 3x3 Party die.

This second one I re sized and re colored the Autunm Blessing from the When I Count My Blessings...I count You Twice Printable Stamps Set and printed directly on the background layer, scored it with ScorPal then embossed with with Quickuts Diamond and Dots embossing folder then added square metal brads. I added a ribbon bow. The leaves were cut and inked using the Cuttlebug Fall Leaves set and attached to an oval/scallop Nestibility.
That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoy your visit. The only way I'll know you stopped by is for you to leave a comment so won't you please take a moment to let me know you were here! Enjoy your day!

I've just spent the last 30 mins lost in your blog. I came across your blog after doing a Google search for some Halloween card inspiration using the Cuttlebug. Your cards are gorgeous and you have a lovely style.

Thank you for sharing!

Happy crafting.
