A couple more fall cards.....

I finally finished with the 6 Square3 cards. Not posting all of them because some of them are like the ones I already have done.

BUT......this one I really like! I used raffia! *okie thinks to self....yeah okie they can see that it is raffia* I did punch holes and set eyelets for the raffia to got through. I think it just adds the perfect dimension for fall! I stamped the pumpkin on the off-white square and then stamped another one and used foam mounting squares to add it over the one on the square. The tree is a Marvy punch and it is also on foam mounting material. The stamps are from the Studio G series 20 set. The fall ones were the only ones in that series I really liked and thanks to Grits4ever I am having a blast with them!!



This card is with the cuttlebug A2 folder Autumn Blessings.....or Autumn words.....can't remember LOL. I used stickles and ink on the card. I got the leaves at Wal-Mart a few weeks ago. They were $1.00 for a package of 80, GREAT PRICE!! I did some brown ink on the leaves to give them a more weathered effect. And yes........STICKLES! *okie grins and nods head* I know you guys are surprised to see Stickles! HA! Okay my friend Scrappinbee just informed me the folder is called "Autumn Embossing Folder". Thanks Bee!! *wonders if everyone knows what the Bee really stands for.......okie now thinks that Bee is gonna wanna whoop okie if she reads this* I don't like the platinum stickles on the embossed leaves in the picture.....but in person they do look better!! I PROMISE!!

  4. Raffia is kinda like an artificial straw. You can find it usually in the floral department of stores. It comes in bags in long strings and makes a mess when trying to get a few strands....but well worth it! I also use it when I wrap gifts! :)

  5. I love that raffia too. 80 leaves. OMG are you going to make 80 Fall cards to go with the 120 Halloween ones? You could spray them gold and give them for Christmas :)

  7. Lovely cards. It may be too old to matter at this point, but just in case you want to know, the Cuttlebug embossing folder used on the second card is really called "Autumn Type".
