A Grateful Heart

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   I really love fall! I'm blessed to live in a home that's surrounded by trees. We're in an established neighborhood, but our house backs up to a creek that runs through a wooded stand of trees. In the summer time, it's like we live in a tree house! In our front yard we have a few flowering trees that are gorgeous in the spring--our cherry tree is confused by the warm weather and is blooming again, poor thing. It's lovely to sit at my computer and look out the window at our trees in all seasons. I'm so blessed and grateful.

Today's card is made with products from the Gilded Autumn Suite on pages 44 through 46 of the August to December Mini Catalog. The "Beautiful Autumn" stamp set and matching Autumn Punch Pack are lovely and the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper is simply stunning. Take a look at this card!

This picture does not do the DSP justice. The copper foil accents are gorgeous! To make this card, I cut 2" by 4" and 3" by 4" pieces of Early Espresso Card Stock. I adhered 1-3/4" by 3-3/4" and 2-3/4" by 3-3/4" pieces of the DSP onto these and then onto a Very Vanilla Card Stock card base.

I stamped a sentiment from the "Beautiful Autumn" stamp set in Early Espresso Ink onto Crumb Cake Card Stock and cut it out with the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered this to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I stamped three different leaves from the stamp set onto Very Vanilla Card Stock. I used Cajun Craze and Garden Green Inks, I used the matching punches from the Autumn Punch Pack to punch out two of the leaves and fussy cut the third one. I stamped the acorn outline in Early Espresso Ink onto Very Vanilla Card Stock and filled in the top with Early Espresso Ink and the bottom with Crumb Cake Ink and then I punched it out with the matching punch. I adhered the elements to the sentiment circle with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. So cute! 

Stay healthy! Stay safe!
