Fall is a time for families to gather for Thanksgiving and for us to count our blessings. Who wouldn’t love a hand made card with a personal note expressing how much they’re loved and thought about?
The papers in the collection are the fall colors you’d expect like green, yellow, and red with a surprise pop of aqua blue and pink. The colors work beautifully together and have a homespun folk feel. I cut a hilly landscape to create the scene on this card mixing gingham, floral and calico.
Sentiment stickers are from the Combo Sticker in the 12 x 12” Collection Pack that’s also sold separately. The house and banner are from the 6x12” Chipboard Sticker Sheet. The tree, leaves and sun are from the Bits and Pieces die cut pack.
I’m smitten with the birds in the collection! They’re a patchwork of the different patterns in the set that looks amazing! You’ll find them printed on the paper, die cut in the Bits and Pieces pack, and on the Chipboard Sticker sheet.
I perched the bird on a branch from the Bits and Pieces. My tip for breaking up patterns is to add some solid color. As an example, to help define the circle of yellow gingham paper I cut for a sun, I added a slightly larger circle of solid yellow card stock backing.
I created the background in lighter colors to help the branch and die cut leaves stand out and create more contrast.
There’s even sticker packs available in this collection to add smaller images and sentiments to your projects like the bitty “fall fun” I added on the border.
The Combo Sticker sheet has so many great embellishments including a row of tabs like the “blessed” on my card. The script font is beautiful and the soft blue matches the papers perfectly!
The Bits and Pieces die cut pack includes 58 die cut pieces ready to work with so creating scenes and embellishing your projects is a treat. The colors match the card stock perfectly so everything looks great together!
I just know you’re going to love this collection! Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!
