Fall-i-Days Llama Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe.  You've reached your next stop on the Llama Fall-i-Days Blog Hop.  For my first card, I kept the design very clean and simple.  I love the Everything Eleanor Stamp Set from the Annual Catalog.  I paired it with the hello sentiment from the My Friend Stamp Set, embossed some flowers, cut them out and added a few pearls.  All the colors remind me of fall.

Stamp Set(s):  Everything Eleanor, My Friend; Ink(s):  Real Red; Card Stock:  Summer Starfruit, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie; Accessories & Tools:  Stampin' Emboss Powder Clear, Pearl Basic Jewels, Stampin' Dimensionals, Heat Tool

Autumn is my favorite time of the year and I love all the colors you find when the leaves are changing on the trees.  For this card I paired Soft Suede with More Mustard and added a touch of Always Artichoke.  Crinkled and crumpled, the More Mustard layer reminds me of leaves that have fallen to the ground and crackle under your feet.

Stamp Set(s):  Just Believe, Tiny Tags; Ink(s):  Soft Suede, Cajun Craze; Card Stock:  Soft Suede, More Mustard, Always Artichoke; Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot Die Cutting Machine, Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die, Little Leaves Sizzlits, 3/16" Neutrals Brads Crumb Cake, Mini Glue Dots

  1. Love, love, LOVE the leafy card. The color combination, the sketch, the way it's mostly symmetrical, but with one extra branch of leaves on one side to keep it interesting... just gorgeous!

  2. Both cards are beautiful, but the Autumn card is my favorite. Great color combination!

  3. Beautiful cards, Marsha! Everything Eleanor is one of my favorites, too. I love the crumpled autumn card.

  4. Marsha, Autumn is my favorite time of the year as well and fall colors are my part of my "palette". So love the Everything Eleanor card.

  5. These are both lovely, Marsha - I need to get Everything Eleanor working harder for me, I love how it coordinates with My Friend. I especially like the way you've made a sweet floral background with the Tiny Tags!

  6. Love the flowers on your hello card. I want to case this one.

  7. Thanks for all of your nice comments.

  8. Marsha love love love the fall and your cards are so warm and wonderful. Love both. hugs.
