A couple more cards for the upcoming card class themed “Fall Cards” are ready!  Both of the cards utilize the Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper (#132184) from the Holiday Catalog. All of the colors and designs in the package are great and it would be difficult for me to select a favorite. Another feature – it contains paper that would be great to use when preparing a masculine card.
The Truly Grateful Stamp Set (#131730 w, #131733 c) was used for this first card. The Soft Sky, Crushed Curry and Chocolate Chip plaid in the designer series paper provides a beautiful background.

“Truly Grateful “
Other materials used includes: Chocolate Chip Card Stock (#102128), Crushed Curry Card Stock (#131199), Whisper White Card Stock (#100730), Early Espresso Classic Stampin’ Pad (#126974), Crushed Curry Classic Stampin’ Pad (#131173), and 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon (#132140).  The ovals were cut using the Ovals Collection Framelits (#129381).

The other card is a Thanksgiving card and uses the appropriate “Happy Thanksgiving” sentiment from the Tags 4 You Stamp Set (#131820 w, #131823 c).  It was cut using the Label Bracket Punch (#132153) and attached using dimensionals.  In addition to the Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper, Tangerine Tango (#111439) and Very Vanilla (#101650) Card Stocks were used.  The maple leaves were stamped using the Magnificent Maple stamp (#131868 Wood only) and Crushed Curry Classic Stampin’ Pad (#131173).  To achieve the two-tone effect, the leaf edges were swiped using a Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Marker.  The larger maple leaf was cut using the Autumn Accents Bigz Dies (#127812) in the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439).  The paper was crumpled to achieve a textured look and attached with dimensionals.

“Happy Thanksgiving”
