For the life of me I can't remember if this image was a digi or a stamp. I can't seem to find it on my reference sheets. I colored the hearts with Copics. The paper was from my daughter. It was called dill flower. I thought the color was perfect for fall. The faux buttons are from cheery lynn designs. I love all the different sizes that came with the set. It is like Nestabilities. I was able to make about 4 of this card. I sent the box to OWH a couple of weeks ago.

Operation Write home had a nice blog skip yesterday with Clean and Simple as the theme. I didn't participate as a blogger but I did hop. We were asked to post cards on the wall this weekend to see what we could come up with. The orange paper I put through the printer and printed the sentiment in the position I needed it to be. The stripes and the pumpkin paper are literally scraps from years past. I Used the Tim Holtz tiny stapler to attach the ribbon. I mounted the tag on a craft paper folded card instead of just the card front. I usually use a front base so I can mount it and have an border. Now that I have this card here I think I will ink around the edges to give it a little color
I decided I didn't like the version made with craft paper so I redid the tag on colored stock put through an embossing folder
I will make about 8 of these cards. Every time I say I am through with fall cards I do a few more. I don't know if I can get all the cards in the box. It is prety much full.

I used a Sizzix leaf die that I have had too many years to remember. I used it on leaf paper. The top leaf is on chipboard and I embossed in a folder. The bottom card I put the leaf on the background and embossed the entire card. I did some leaf stamping on the side of the card

I made 4 of these for OWH. The stamp image is from Impression Obsession. I colored with Copic markers. For the center of the flower I added copper colored Stickles. I sealed it with Rangers Inksentials. One of the flowers I used Diamond Glaze for the center. The center was a beautiful clear brown. The Inksentials gave this center a kind of cloudy look. I think I need to get another bottle of Diamond Glaze. Putting that on my list right now. The sentiment is from Create with TLC. Not sure if it was a freebie or in a set I bought.

I made a few of these cards with die cut photo images I bought years ago when I was scrapbooking. The corner sentiment is an Inkadinkadoo stamp.
I guess I am going to have to get some cards scanned. These 2 are the last ones I have ready to upload to the blog. These cards will be going to OWH

Finally, I am ready to start posting some of the fall cards I have been making. I have made enough that I am getting weary of them. This is a couple of versions using the same stamp. I think it was a Hero Arts cling stamp but I won't swear to that. I discarded the info and I don't usually do that. I really like this stamp and I intend to use it a lot in the future.
