PPA61 To Autumn


I should be getting dinner ready, but I am going to post this QUICKLY!  It’s for Pal’s Paper Arts, here’s the sketch:


and here’s the card:


I used a clear set that I’ve had for ages….nary a name on the package!!  The background words are stamped repeatedly with fall colors—clear stamps are so easy to line up!  I also stamped on some twill—that makes a fun effect—and did some direct-to-paper distressing on my little “sign”!  I was also excited because I just came across the poem (ode) from which this circular sentiment came—it’s called “To Autumn”!  TFL! 


  • Stamps:  Clear Autumn set (no name), Curly Cute
  • Paper:  Naturals Ivory, Riding Hood Red, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie
  • Ink:  Riding Hood Red, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, So Saffron, More Mustard
  • Acc:  Nesties, Twill, Diecut, Dimensionals, Sponge Daubers, Distresser

    those colors and the soft distressing, the stamped twill, it all comes together for a beautiful seasonal card.
