Full Harvest of Blessings

Hello, everyone.  Here is a fall card I made today.

This beautiful pumpkin image, sentiment, and patterned paper are all from Doodle Pantry - such a pretty set this is.  I started by covering a white card base with the patterned paper and added a square embossed brown panel.   I used the pre-coloured version of the pumpkins (since it's already perfect), mounted it on green cardstock, and affixed to the card with foam tape. 

*Clearly Besotted LEAFY ACCENTS DIE Thin Metal Dies
Clearly Besotted Leafy Accents
I was excited to play with my new leaf stamps and dies.  They are from Clearly Besotted Leafy Accents and are part of my birthday gift from my BF Brian - my birthday isn't until Friday but I got them early - Yay!! - thank you, Brian!  So I stamped the leaves in green on green cardstock and die cut.  I printed the sentiment on green cardstock, trimmed, and affixed to the card with foam tape. Lastly I embellished with several orange and yellow flowers, the stamped/die-cut leaves, and a ribbon bow.  I added brads to several of the flowers.  Here are the supplies used:

*Clearly Besotted LEAFY ACCENTS Clear Stamp Set
  • Stamp:  Leaves (Clearly Besotted - Leafy Accents)
  • Ink:  Clearsnap Ancient Page - Pine
  • Die:  Leaves (Clearly Besotted - Leafy Accents)
  • Embossing folder:  Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes
  • Digi stamp, sentiment, patterned paperDoodle Pantry
  • Ribbon:  Offray
  • Cardstock:  Recollections, Stampin' Up!
  • Flowers:  Recollections, Dollarama
