Autumn Trees

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week our theme is AUTUMN TREE/LEAVES.


I love crisp fall weather so I created a card that reflected my perfect day.


There is nothing more delightful than a crisp sunny fall day out with the family picking out pumpkins.  THOUGHTFUL BRANCHES was perfect for this theme and provided the majority of the elements.  But the one thing that really makes the card wonderful is pumpkins!  I used the set of pumpkins from the SPOOKY FUN Bundle, they were just the right size!!

Color Fusers Blog Hop: August 2016-Part 1

Welcome to the first hop of August with the Color Fusers Design Team!  This month we are featuring a super gorgeous color combination of Cherry Cobbler, Watermelon Wonder and Smokey Slate.  Be sure to click on the links below to visit all the blogs for tons of fabulous inspiration!

August Color Fuse

For my card, I held out and waited for my latest order to arrive before starting.  You’ll see why when I show you the gorgeous card made with the new THOUGHTFUL BRANCHES BUNDLE that will be available for you to order starting TOMORROW!

Thoughtful Branches Bundle Info

This is such a gorgeous stamp set and coordinating die cuts.  I have so many ideas floating around in my head and not enough time to try them all!  For starters, here’s a clean and simple idea with our three gorgeous colors for August.

Thoughtful Branches

Isn’t this just wonderful!  The die cuts are just amazing, love that you can make a tree and a flower with one die cut!

Thoughtful Branches

I stamped Cherry Cobbler on Watermelon Wonder then die cut the flower.  I added another layer of color underneath with a flower die cut in Cherry Cobbler.  I love these two colors together…it’s a combination I would have ever tried with this set if it hadn’t been for this challenge!  I added in a Smokey Slate stem and leaves…who needs green when you have this fabulous color and a bit of WINK OF STELLA.  Yes, I finally broke down and ordered WINK OF STELLA and now I understand what all the hype is about!  It’s so much more amazing in person…adds a beautiful shimmer to anything you want!

Thoughtful Branches Card

Now that you’ve seen how wonderful this bundle is, don’t wait!  You can order starting tomorrow and I have a feeling these will not last the entire month of August.  It is a WHILE SUPPLIES LAST offer, so make sure you take advantage of the deal and get this amazing bundle!
