A Few Fall Cards

Hi everyone. Hope your day is going good. I love this time of the year when Fall is in the air. Autumn begins September 22nd. What a beautiful time of the year. The leaves are beginning to turn their lovely colors. As if God took a paint brush and went wild with all the colors of the universe. He is an Artist!!!

So today I am going to show you a few cards I have made for the fall season and will be adding to my Etsy store. In the above picture is a card I made yesterday. I finally found a leaf punch. Crinkling the leaves, I then inked them with green, yellow, red and brown ink then sprayed pearl mist on them. It was a very fun technique and I am looking forward to making a few more cards like this. This card will sell for $3 + shipping. The inside of the card says "Simply Enjoy it all" and was added to my Etsy store today.
These cards were made last fall. I am not sure I added them to my Etsy Store then, but now they will be. This will be set of 4 cards for $8 + shipping. I used a pumpkin embossing folder, sanded it down then inked it. Then covered it with vellum that was stamped with leaves and the words "Autumn Leaves" Then embellished with wooden leaves and stamped leaves and a ribbon running down the side. The inside of these cards say "Bushels of blessing" with leaves and pumpkins stamped. One card is blank.
These cute little scarecrows will be added to my Etsy store in the next week or so.  These 2 cards measure 6.25 " tall X 4.65" wide and will sell for $5.00 + shipping for the two. The scarecrow is stamped then colored in with pens and covered with a glaze, then layered a couple of times with cardstock. A pumpkin is added on the corner and glazed also. The inside of one card is blank and the other says "Have a bountiful Harvest" with leaves stamped.
These cards are stamped with leaves then dabbed with brown ink and embellished with ribbon and shiny leaves. The inside of the cards each say "Fall is when nature turns to Gold" The cards will sell for $8 + shipping. All my cards come with an envelope and clear plastic sleeve for protection.
This is a set of 4 scarecrows for $8 + shipping. Each card is colored a little bit different and the measurements of these cards are 5.50" tall X 4.25" wide. You will probably see them in my Etsy store in the next week or so. The inside of each card is stamped with "Have a Bountiful Harvest"

So there you have it, just a few cards that I have worked on and am working on now. I have a few house mouse stamps that I want to work with and add to my store....then on to Thanksgiving and Christmas. I am not much into Halloween cards so you won't be seeing those on my blog any time soon.

You all have a great day and keep looking up for your redemption draws nigh.
Cheers ~ Louise

You are so talented Louise! So pretty.

It doesn't feel like autumn today - its 92 degrees outside.

I much prefer the "true" fall weather. Hugs!

ha yes the oven is clean partly because it is fairly new
back when I had my 3 sons to cook for all the time it was a mess(:)
plus I have a self cleaning oven that works really good
just take the racks out while its cleaning
thanks on the cake...
was pleased it turned out so tasty and moist

Ah, you've been busy with the cards. We spent the weekend in Brookings to celebrate Rick's mom's birthday. She will turn 85 this coming Saturday, but they will be gone to a cranberry festival in Bandon, OR. then, so we visited them a week early. I'm thinking we'll be staying home for awhile now to get some stuff done here. It's been a busy few weeks with lots of traveling. Now I'm ready for some cooler weather and some sewing or something... Take care, P.
