Autumn Blessings for CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

Happy Tuesday everyone!!

Today is my turn for some CAS-ual Fridays inspiration over at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog. We were asked to make a fall card and I chose to use the "Acorn Fri-dies" as my focal point and a sentiment from the matching "Autumn Blessings" stamp set.

I kind of am addicted to die cutting right now and am trying to use scraps of patterned paper as much as I can. I chose red and orange as my leaf colors because these are my favorite colors on fall trees. My neighbor across the street has a tree that has leaves that turn that exact orange!!

I chose to stamp and then fussy cut the "blessing" sentiment so I could make it part of the grouping rather then use a strip.

I added the little heart from the "Fun-Fetti Fri-dies" because it was sitting on my desk and I thought it would looked nice over the green. Besides, I don't think I have made a card lately that doesn't use this die set!! I think it is one of my all-time favorites!! (and I have A LOT of dies.)

I hope I have inspired you to create some Autumn cards of your own. If you are interested in giving yourself a shopping spree, use my code nora2017 to get an extra 15% off your purchase at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamp Store.

This is really a sweet Autumn card, Nora. Those colors are gorgeous together, and like you, one of my neighbors has a tree with those beautifully colored leaves on it. The white, dotted swiss background really makes your focal point pop. Sweet scalloped border, too. What a fun card! Love it!! Bev
