Cheer All Year

CCMC379Happy Thursday!  Boy we having been have FALL around here this week.  We had been enjoying temps in the 60s and 70s…well…this week, 50s and low 6os.  Winter is right around the corner…DANG!

Since it is feeling very ‘autumny’ I decided to go with an ‘autumn’ theme for my card.  This is one of those sketches that I took a few ‘liberties’ when creating.  I used the three different color ‘splotches’ to represent the 3 circles int he sketch!  Okay…works for me!

Here’s the details (don’t blink…it’s a quick one!)…

  • Very Vanilla – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, stamp the ‘splotch’ 3 times – Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist, Old Olive.  Stamp greeting using Old Olive, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Cut leaf form black print (Happy Hauntings dsp – it’s NOT just for Halloween) add to card front.
  • Add gold button using glue dots
  • Tie bow form Gold Cording Trim and add to button
  • Add gold sequins

Yep…that’s all there is to it!

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team!

As I was working on the new banner for the Create with Connie and Mary site (you know…we are getting ready to open the September Mini Session on Sept 13th…WOOO HOOO!!!), I picked the colors of Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Delightful Dijon to give our banner a ‘fall’ feeling.  LOVE IT!  Well anyway, as I sat down to stamp, I had these colors on my brain and wanted to play with the new Among the Branches set.  This idea popped into my head.  Oh my…it is just so CAS and SO ME!

Here’s the details (don’t blink…it’s definitely quick and easy!)…

  • Whisper White THICK – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  Stamp the branch (tree trunk) in Sahara Sand then the leaves in Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Delightful Dijon.  Stamp greeting (Cheer All Year) in Rich Razzleberry.
