Just a quick post to share three fall birthday cards.
This one cases one of Laurie Willison's cards using the new Brushed Off stamp set and the leaf die cut, and shared during the August release at Papertrey Ink. I love the leaf cut from the self-adhesive gold paper that was released this summer sometime. Makes it so easy to add the shiny accent.
On the next card I used the Brushed Off stamps in a similar fashion to a card created by Nicole Heady, but changed the die cut, using another of the pretty gold leaves and a few gold enamel dots from Simple Stories.
The sentiment is from the Simon Says September card kit set, Birthday Bits, which was sitting on my desk after making this card for my sister-in-law:
The patterned papers in the September card kit from Pink Fresh Studio are just delightful. It's not often I start with a patterned paper when making a card, but these balloons were just too wonderful not to use just the way they were. I bumped the panel up and layered it on a piece of cardstock, and another patterned paper from the kit, and added a few sequins.
I die cut a banner from the Papertrey Sheer Basics vellum, and white embossed the sentiment, also from the September card kit stamps.
It's still very cool and very windy here, but the forecast for the next few days calls for a bit more sunshine which should warm things up a bit. Today was the coldest day on record since the 1960's. We seem to go from one extreme to the next! We're off on a brief road trip tomorrow to visit my brother and attend my grand-nephew's baptism. Hoping to see some fall color in Vermont on our way home.
