It’s looking like Autumn here today!  Love the cooler temps!  The fabulous colors of Fall are showing up everywhere!

I started with a MB Crimson Notecard and stamped the Autumn Leaf Collage stamp on a MB Parchment piece of notecard.

The Alessandria Tree Background die and Marvelous Maple Leaves die were cut from watercolor paper and watercolored with distress inks. I added the leaf veins with the smallest stylus from the McGill Stylus set.

Then the Alessandria Tree on top.

I started this card with a MB Parchment Notecard, stamped the Journey Collage stamp on it but covered up the word journy with the new Give Thanks Combo stamp.

Die cut the Caseta Bloom die from three colors of MB card-stocks. Add a couple sequins to the flower centers and some 1/16th inch brads.

Die cut the Grapevine Wreath die from MB kraft card-stock and ink.

PamSparksSilverMerryChristmasSnowflake700

 

Here’s a festive CAS Christmas card using techniques we love and easy to create multiples of!

1. I stenciled the Memory Box Flurry Frame Stencil with Tsukeniko’s Delicata Silver ink and one of their large ink daubers on the top portion of a Memory Box White A2 notecard.

2. I die cut the Grand Merry Christmas Script die from Silver Glitter card-stock and Memory Box Cranberry card-stock. Be sure to keep the cranberry dot for the i and the silver inside piece for the tail of the y.

TIP: You could use any color for the word Christmas! A way to use up scraps. Try Black, Teal and Royal purple! (wish I’d thought of that while I was making it! lol)

3. I trimmed the silver cut to fit the white notecard.

4. Adhere the Grand Merry Christmas to the notecard.

5. Keep the word Christmas from the cranberry cut, insert into the silver cut.

TIP: If you use double sided tape to adhere your silver Merry Christmas to the card, there will be adhesive where the cranberry Christmas fits, if you go ahead and place tape over the cut out area too.

6. Die cut the Bristol Snowflake die in white and silver glitter card-stocks.

7. Adhere the silver center to the white snowflake and adhere the snowflake to the card.  I just glue the center.

8. Add some pretty silver cord at the top, tying with a square knot.

9. I used the clear Wink of Stella brush marker on the word Christmas.

That’s it for today!

Holler if you have any questions!  Always love reading your comments!  Happy Fall Y’all!  TFL!

  1. Oh Pam these are beautiful. I love fall and Halloween. Just love all the colors. I have been working away on all my Halloween cards for all my little kiddos-and a few big ones!!!

  2. Love the fall card – it is feeling like fall but not yet looking like it yet here in southern MO. The leaf dies are beautiful – I’m just not yet ready to start thinking about Christmas but do enjoy seeing all of your beautiful creations.

  3. Oh Pam, I love the fall one with the leaves!! You can feel Autumn in that card! The next one is so soft and dainty, so sweet. The Christmas one is in the spirit! The snowflake is so delicate and the Merry in the glitter paper put me in the spirit!!

  4. Oh all of your cards are stunning! The two fall ones are so pretty!! I saw the Christmas one on the MB blog and I just love it too! So glad you guys are cooling off. We are too! Loving it! 🙂

  5. Three more first place winners! I adore the fall feeling of the first two. And of course, I now want THAT tree too! ha ha I should just ask you what dies you are buying before I get anything because yours always look better! It’s kind of like going out to dinner & whatever YOU order never looks as good as whatever the person you are with orders! ha ha All of these are terrific! You are an endless source of inspiration!

  6. Those cards are breathtaking and really show-off how to use dies to achieve elegant paper crafts. Thank you for exciting my brain with new ideas.

  7. Absolutely stunning cards, all of them.
    Thanks for joining us at the Simon Says stamp Wednesday Challenge.
