Happy Fall

Happy Thursday everyone! Robin here with my design of the week for Dies R Us! The Fall colors are everywhere, well maybe not for SoCal, our Fall colors are in the stores in the form of pumpkins, gourds, tablecloths, clothing etc. Our foliage stays pretty much the same except for a few trees and we usually plant color spots for the season; no frost here!


My Fall card started with layering the Poppystamp Scrolling Background onto a distressed orange paper; then adhering to a cream card base.  I stamped the Fall sentiment, from Impression Obsession, using Potters Clay ink onto a cream background. The sentiment was cut out using Spellbinders Small Deckled Rectangles. the edges were sponged and the sentiment was added to the card with foam pop ups. 

I couldn't find the "right" ribbon or twine for my card so I decided to use a strip from a piece of patterned (small text) paper; worked perfectly!  I added a few Memory Box Grape Vine sprigs cut from a mottled green paper (I love the detail in the leaves) and added to my card. The card was finished with a cute wooden heart and a simple twine bow.
As always, if Dies R Us is out of stock on a die, add your name to the out of stock form and you will be notified as soon as it is back in stock! Twice a month DRU has a challenge for you to possibly win a gift certificate; it's easy just make a card with the specified theme and post on our gallery. So check out the Dies R Us Challenge Blog!

Until next week, thanks for stopping by, Robin

  1. I LOVE this card! It just says fall & everything that goes with it! Terrific design & those dies were the perfect choice! I'm so jealous of your weather, though! They are talking that horrible "S" word for us next week!
