The Sights of Autumn



I guess I've really been in a cardmaking mood for the past week. And, here is another. My hubby put new shelves in my craft room yesterday and I did some organizing. It is much better in there and it somehow made me want to make a card. Ha

The Featured Stamper on Splitcoaststampers  FS349 today is Tesa aka TesaB. What a  great gallery of cards and I've chosen this one to case. Isn't it beautiful?

As I was straightening my craft room, I found a gorgeous pad of matching Autumn papers that I think my sister must have given me last year. I just had to use them. The leaves and pumpkin are all matching papers to the orange linen. I stamped and paper pieced the pumpkin and stamped and cut out the leaves. That pine cone is not stamped but part of the paper.

I'll head over to Pixie's Snippets Playground - Wk 94 -with my card because I used snippets with my pumpkin and leaves.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-Use a rubber or clear stamp-I used stamps for the pumpkin, leaves, and sentiment.

Allsorts -#228-Use your ABC's-Using the alphabet but not including letters in a sentiment. For example: a title or name

Have a wonderful Sunday. It promises to be a beautiful day here.

Eine wunderschöne Herbst Stimmung hast Du wieder gezaubert, Benzi. Die Struktur des Leinens kann man sehr gut erkennen. So sieht die coloration ganz anders aus, als auf Papier.
Wie schön, das Deine Schwester Dir die tollen Bastelsachen schon im letzten Jahr geschenkt hat.
Ich tausche mich auch immer wieder sehr gerne mit meiner Schwester aus.

Liebe Grüße, Carmen

How pretty and how perfect for Autumn! I love all the earthy colors and especially the design in the background paper behind the pinecone! Those 3 little pearls are the perfect touch too! Whenever I clean and re-organize my craft room it gives me renewed creativity. I guess I just can't function in clutter! LOL

What a beautiful autumnal card, love all your swirly stamping in the background too :)
Do new shelves mean you've room for more new stash? Haha.
Jealous of your lovely weather ... 26 is a hot summer's day for us! Unfortunately we had an overcast chilly day, my washing was out on the line all day and I've just brought it in and put it in the tumble dryer!
