Fall Sweetheart

Happy Saturday!  Always happy to be here with you on the weekend.  🙂  

I am honestly a bit appalled at myself for making a fall themed card to share with you today because I am just not ready for a change in season.  I feel like the summer has flown by and I want it to slow down. But, it is cute so I’ll just have to suck it up. 

This girl is darling.  And I love all the fall elements around her:, apples, apple cider, hints of back to school, fall leaves, sunflowers, pumpkins and scarves. all from the Seasonal Sweetheart set.  There are so many elements and options in this set.  I had stamped and colored a few others, but ultimately went with this combo. 

One of my fave combos for fall are the traditionals with a touch of blue.  It is such a nice contrast.  So I had fun using the color here.  

Here is how I made this one:

  • I traced a circle on my Copic friendly paper so I had a basic shape of a wreath to use as a guide. 
  • I then started with the elements from Seasonal Sweetheart and made a series of masks.  I stamped out the images using the masks to create the bottom half of the wreath. The green leaves around the top half are from the Spring Fling Floral set.  
  • Once the wreath shape was done, I stamped the sweet girl in the middle.  
  • Then I erased any remaining pencil marks from the circle I traced. 
  • Next, I colored my images using my Copics.  I added a bit of very light blue around the edges of the girl and the leaves.  I also stamped and paper pieced the scarf. 
  • I fussy cut the wreath out.  (I have a ScanNCut but I have been doing more fussy lately, I guess because my scissors are right there!)
  • After I was done with the wreath I set it aside. 
  • Next, I used a Wonky Stitches die to die cut this fall paper from Pebbles Inc.
  • I cut some light blue cardstock cut to A2 size and mounted the designer paper.
  • I mounted my image using foam tape.
  • Lastly, I stamped the sentiment form the Seasonal Sweetheart set on that same blue paper, cut it out and adhered it to my card

Honestly, I am pretty happy with how it turned out…even though it is fall themed! Exasperation! LOL.  But seriously, the elements, the colors, the sweet images, they just make a happy combo. 

I hope you enjoyed this card and I appreciate you visiting.  For a full list of supplies, feel free to visit my blog. 

Before you go I have one Frugal Stampers Tip for you, for masking you can use post-it notes rather than some fancy masking paper, it is cheaper and it works great!

Have a wonderful day!
