A Taste of Fall

Recently I attended the annual Harvest Festival where I found lots of mixes for soups, stews and cobblers. Our weather briefly cooled down enough to open up the windows at night and I'm already pouring pumpkin creamer in my coffee. It was just a little taste of Fall, because sadly its still summer around here. However, that doesn't mean I can't wish for Fall to come soon!

I gave you a little look at the Woodland Critters stamp set and some of the Autumn themed Swan Lake papers earlier this week. Today I have another look for you of the cute owl and some random stamped acorn paper. The focus of this card is actually a Swan Lake PML card.

All of these lovely Fall products are available now. You can shop online here. Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks Little Critter

Heart 2 Heart Challenges Blog {and any stamping enthusiast} is celebrating Stamping Month all of September. With the newest Annual and Holiday Idea Books just having been released, there are all sorts of new My Acrylix stamp sets to play with this month. One of the stamp sets that caught my interest in the Holiday Expressions book was the Woodland Critters. The animals are adorable and the sentiment bubbles are cute for any occasion. It was really that raccoon that stole my heart though!

I am entering this card in the H2H challenge for that stamped raccoon. I did choose to use the "thanks" thin cut instead of one of the sentiments on the stamp set. {Don't worry I'll be showing more of these critters with the talk bubbles soon!} I chose the Swan Lake papers in a variety of colors and patterns to be the backdrop for Mr. raccoon.

Get more details on these products or order online here.

Stay tuned for more fall inspired cards featuring some more of these adorable critters!

Blessed Beyond Measure

Today I am sharing a card created with this month's beautiful stamp set Blessed Beyond Measure. I used the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches. It was the perfect design to showcase that layered pumpkin front and center. The sentiment stands out nicely in the water color splashes and stamped leaves.

The Rustic Home and Swan Lake papers blend so nicely for this card. You can get all of these products now online or through me directly, however the stamp of the month will only be available until September 30th.
