Elegant Autumn Greetings...

The air has taken on a crisp chill and wonderful scent, the leaves are falling and you can hear the passers-by shuffling through them....sigh, I just love this time of year :) Makes he want to snuggle up with a cup of hot tea, my hubby and fur-babies.
With fall on my mind, I couldn't help but break out one of the newest fall stamps from DeNami Design, Elegant Autumn's so perfect!
What I just love about this stamp is that it's a little bit larger so it makes a perfect focal point AND it comes with the pretty little sentiment! However, with no trouble at all, the sentiment can be left off making this little stamp very versatile! If you look closely at my card, you'll see that I very easily inked up my leaves in a tan color and my sentiment in a rust/maroon color. I didn't use any masking at all, just simply held the stamp in my hand (rubber side up) and using the ink pad in my other hand, simply inked it up...easy peasy!

I simply layered some soft fall colored patterned papers with kraft and popped my image up on foam tape. Since I wasn't adding any elements or doo-daddy things I decided to add the little acorn from the Autumn stamp set to fill in the image just a little. I'm thinking it still needs just a tiny bit of jazz so I'm going to go back and scatter a few pieces of brown bling through the scene...whatcha think?

Today I thought I'd enter another card on the Ribbon Carousel blog  for their fall challenge :)


  1. The pretty background make this card very elegant Tina! Your softer colors with pops of maroon are lovely!

  2. This card is beautiful. I love the soft colors and those patterned papers work so well with this stamp!

  3. This is a beautiful card Tina. I am with you about loving this time of the year and it really makes me appreciate how beautiful it is back East because here in Texas, we don't have the changing of the seasons and I miss it so much. I miss the leaves, the colors, the weather... just everything. Your card reminded me of all of that. Just simply beautiful.
