ThankFALL For You

Hello friends and a very happy Friday to ya!  Are you ready for the weekend?
I sure am!  I love Fall and pretty much everything about it!
So of course I wanted to join in the Fall fun with something crafty too!

I think these Lawn Fawn stamps are so cute!  I love the matching dies to go with them too!  Sure beats fussy cutting everything out!
Looking at the photo of this card just doesn't quite look as good as it does IRL!  The colors are a bit off and of course you can't see the pretty shimmer on the pumpkins that I made with my Wink of Stella glitter pen.  So if you would like to SEE it IRL, let me know!! :)

I didn't have any of the gorgeous Fall papers that Lawn Fawn carries, but I did find a few pieces of some Lawn Fawn papers that I thought would work for a Fall theme design.  I also took the leaf image from the So Thankful set and stamped it with brown and vanilla inks right on top of the decorative papers.  I thought the dots were a bit much and the leaves scattered around helped it to look more Fall.  I also took the sentiment from that stamp set and fit it inside one of the images from the Bannerific stamp set and then used the coordinating die cut to pop it out over the card.

I colored in the pumpkins from the So Thankful set with my Copic markers and die cut those out with the coordinating die set as well and then layered them up over top of the stitched die cut circle.  I also placed an embossed strip of brown card stock embossed with a woodgrain texture to place behind it.  I added more die cut leaves to the banner and added some twine and a button at the top of the circle.  And I called it done!

Hope you've enjoyed my creation for you today!
Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!
