Have a Splendid Day ~ a fall card

Hello friends!!  So happy to be back in my craft room today!  I thought I was going to lose my mind if I didn't get some crafting therapy soon.

And today is the first day of fall!!  My favorite season.  I've been going crazy with apple, pumpkin and cinnamon recipes in the kitchen.  I have my fall scented candles burning from morning till night and so of course I started with some fall cards to get back into the swing of things.

I started with a sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges blog

And here is what I came up with

I used Chocolate cardstock for the base.  All the pattern papers come from a new fall 6x6 pad I got, Echo Park Paper, Reflections Fall by Lori Whitlock.  The apple is cut from Doodlecharms at 2.5" using CTMH cardstock colors Champagne, Olive, Cocoa and Barn Red.  I also inked the edges with the coordinating inks to eliminate the white edges.  I used the stamp set Harvest Happiness for the sentiment and the leaves and cut the corresponding shapes from Art Philosophy.  I stamped the sentiment with Chocolate and the leaves with Olive, Barn Red and Goldrush.  I added a button and jute bow from my stash and attached the apple with an Action Wobble.

On the inside, I used the border stamp from the Harvest Happiness stamp set in Cocoa.  I used a scrap from the same 6x6 pad - it's the opposite side of one the the papers from the front.  I also used the same leaf stamp with Olive ink using the second generation stamping technique.

Apples, leaves, fall colors - how can you go wrong??  

I hope you are all having a wonderful, relaxing Sunday!  I have some other projects that are half completed, so I'm going to finish those and I'll be back tomorrow.

Oh - I wanted to let you all know there are some new products added to the While Supplies Last section.  If you haven't been there lately, go check it out.  The Spellbound Paper Packs from last year are in there for $2.20!!  And a bunch of other great stuff super duper cheap!

You also have about a week left to take advantage of the National Stamping Month promotional stamp set and the amazing Poster Tidings Stamp of the Month.  ~~  This would be a great month to get one of the exclusive Cricut cartridges and take advantage of the specials!  For $114.00 you would get a Cricut cartridge, 3 sheets of dimensional elements and 7 stamp sets!  And no matter what cartridge you choose, you will not go wrong - they are all must haves!!  All of this would retail for $190.85 so it's an amazing savings!
