Another Autumn Birthday

So this is the third birthday card I have made for a male relative in September! It is a busy month as it's also my birthday and my parents' anniversary month. I am entering this in the StampTV Monthly Mix - Autumn is in the Air and the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember exclusive Gina K. Designs release.

The leaves are starting to turn and they inspired me to go with these colours. I love this large, leafy stamp. I inked it up with two colours and stamped it twice toward the top of a piece of white cardstock and twice toward the bottom.

I stamped the sentiment on a strip of white cardstock and heat embossed it in clear. After sponging the edges, I attached it to the card front with a couple of brads. I then matted it with green before adhering it to a white card base.

The weather is finally cooling off, although we are supposed to have rain and high winds tomorrow. I guess it's appropriate for the first day of Autumn!

Supplies used:
Gina K. Designs: Layered Daisies, Massive Messages stamp sets
                             Ink: Sweet Corn, Tangerine Twist, Red Hot, Fresh Asparagus, Warm Cocoa
                             White, Fresh Asparagus cardstock
brads, clear embossing powder, sponge dauber, tape runner from my stash


  1. This is so well designed and I love the gorgeous colors used on it. And we are feeling Fall too. It was down to 39 degrees last night but warmed up during the day today. So I hope it won't get too cold as we found out last night that our furnace is on the fritz. So have gotten an order in for a guy to come Monday and get it working again.

  2. Outstanding! Lovely job with the leaves.


Thank you for your comments. I appreciate each one.
