Fall Into A Good Time

I love this time of year with all of the gorgeous colors and awareness of all that we have to be thankful for.  Our Skipping Stones Design Challenge for October is running a bit behind but I wanted to share my card and will update this post if we get the challenge / link-up completed.

Earlier this week, I used this stamp set - I'd Pick You - by stamping the larger floral design and then cutting out banners, This time, I have used the entire smaller floral stamp for this card 


  • I stamped the floral design from "I'd Pick You" onto a piece of off-white cardstock and also stamped the floral petals 3 more times on 3 different autumn-colored patterned papers. I then fussy-cut the 3 floral petal images.
  • The leaves of the image were colored using different shades of Green Stampin' Up markers.  I then placed the 3 floral images onto the cardstock, centering the middle one on top of the stamped image and arranging the other 2 on the right and left side.
  • I had cut the off-white cardstock to fit on a very dark brown card base. At the top of that piece with the stamped floral image, I placed a piece of Tim Holtz Ideology "Materialize" Design Tape. I then adhered that entire image to the card base with Tombow MONO Aqua Liquid Glue.
  • The Pumpkin Spice paper pad by Craft Smith has to be one of my favorite paper collections. They are available at Michaels and I will admit that I bought 7 different pads when I went there about 6 weeks ago !! YES, a bit paper-obsessed here !! All of the Autumn sayings were cut from a piece of the Pumpkin Spice paper. I arranged ( and arranged and re-arranged ) the sayings around the stamped image until I had them exactly how I wanted them on the cardstock. They were adhered with a Tombow MONO Permanent Adhesive Runner.
  • To finish the card, I placed 2 wooden buttons on the card. I have been hoarding these buttons by Stampin' Up forever !! I tied a piece of twine through the larger button.
