Card by Julee Tilman using Autumn Leaves and Everything Nice from Verve Stamps

I started by stamping the pumpkin stamps from Autumn Leaves on white cardstock and cutting out. I colored with Copic markers. The cup with the pumpkin is made with 2 stamps from the previously released Everything Nice stamp set, which I stamped randomly on crumb cake, then colored with Copics and sponged around the edges. I could have used the cup from this set, but I was planning on using the hello pumpkin sentiment to complete the pumpkin theme, but changed my mind at the last minute and chose the happy fall cut from a portion of the Stitched Pennants die set. I finished off with a few rectangle layers for matting and a seam binding bow.

Autumn LeavesFalling Leaves Die Set

The Autumn Leaves set is an autumn inspired set, complete with falling leaves, a fabulous mug and pretty pumpkins. Whether you're saying hello, celebrating the season, or sharing your gratitude, this fall set is sure to delight. The set includes outlined images of three sizes of leaf, as well as solid counterparts for super easy coloring. The leaves and pumpkins can be cut with the coordinating Falling Leaves die set. For even more fun, that sweet little cup of fall coordinates with the previously released Happiness in a Cup die set.

The coordinating Falling Leaves Die Set is a set of five dies. It fits the three sizes of completed leaves, the pumpkin duo and also includes a large stitched rectangle (2.75 x 3.75") that is a perfect backdrop for any fall scene.  Die cuts leave an approximate 1/16" border around the coordinating stamped image.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Happy hopping!

The hop kicks off on my blog, Poetic Artistry.
