Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!

Hey y'all! Shelly, here!
Happy Friday!! :)

Today is the day...the start of the Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!! Woohoo!
If you haven't heard or seen what the Coffee Lover's blog hop is all about, you must check it out! :)
So without further's my card!

I kept things nice and simple. I used some patterned paper for my background, which reminded me of a 'fall color' green. Along with my patterned paper, I used the new Stitched Dot Rectangle die. After, I added my 'fall garland' and sentiment pieces in a dark brown ink. And to finish things off, I added a little wood veneer piece. Easy peasy, right?!...

Happy Wednesday A Jillian Vance Design fans!!  Rosemary here with a fall inspired card I created using several different AJVD dies.  This card has absolutely no stamping on it!
I had planned on having some stamping on the card when I started it, but as it progressed I decided to just go with an all die cut card.  I recently got the AJVD Leaves and Petals die set.  Creating a wreath with the set just seemed the natural way to go with this die set.  I pulled out some older Webster's Pages patterned papers and die cut three different leaves from each patterned.  I then inked all the leaves with Ranger Vintage Photo ink to tone down the colors.  I used two AJVD circle backdrop dies to cut a circle to layer my leaves on.  The word "grateful" was die cut four times using the AJVD Grateful die from additional patterned paper and adhered together.  Once the leaves were glued in place and set I added the sentiment.  The woodgrain panel was die cut from patterned paper using a Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop die, the wreath adhered and I mounted the panel on a kraft cardstock base.  Since my colors work for the current Time Out challenge I will be adding it to that line up.  I'm also going to add this to the current Paper Players challenge: clean and simple taste of fall.

Sending Blessings of the Season

Pretty card all dressed up for FALL!!!
This card is a lot easier than it appears!  I love the Daisy Die Set as well as the Leaves and Petals Die Set, they have so many possibilities!  You can even create a poinsettia with the Leaves set!  That will be a future blog post!
I just layered the Daisy Die  cuts and curled them up a bit using a pen!  The circle frame was created by just laying two of our Basic Circle Backdrop dies in the size I wanted and run thru the Big Shot! I used a bit of tape to keep them centered with each other.  Arrange the leaves and stamp the sentiment on the Banner DIEtails die ~ which happens to be on SALE right now!
The Wood Grain Background Builder Stamp (also on sale right now) gives the perfect backdrop!

Hard not to FALL in love with card making! It is actually therapeutic!

Autumn Leaves with a Grateful Heart Card

AJVD, Kecia Waters, leaves
Later in the week, the calendar will declare it is officially fall.  I decided to celebrate the changing of the season with this card.  Kecia Waters on the blog today.

With watercolor paper, I used the AJVD "Leaves and Petals Die Set" to cut the leaves.  I sponged various dye inks directly onto the leaves.  The dye inks include: Adirondack Sunshine Yellow, Adirondack, Sunset Orange, Adirondack Lettuce, Distress Ink Wild Honey, Distress Ink Walnut Stain.  I then adhered them onto a panel of patterned paper from Lasting Impressions. I stamped the sentiment from the AJVD "Autumn Blessings Stamp Set" with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I then placed the panel onto a white cardfront.  To me, this seems like the perfect card for Thanksgiving.

AJVD Supplies:
Autumn Blessings
Other Supplies:
Adirondack Inks, Distress Inks, Versafine Onyx black, sponges, Lasting Impressions patterned paper
I hope you come back to the AJVD blog often this week.  We've got lots of inspiration coming your way.  Thank you so much for visiting!

Hey y'all! Shelly, here!
Happy Friday!! :)

So today I'm sharing a super simple and FUN card!
Are you a POT HEAD?!...heehee.

As many of you know the Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop is just around the corner...being excited for that to start, I thought I'd play with some coffee stamps until the time comes. ;)

I used the new Pot Head stamp set, along with a mint color ink on kraft paper. Something about that mint color with the kraft just had me...Afterwards, I stamped my sentiment in the middle. Quick and easy, yeah?!...

After making this card, I thought it would be great to make a set of these and give them as gifts or even just make a bunch to send out to all your coffee loving friends/family! :)
