SOS Challenge 431 - October 13 - Happy Fall Y'all! - Create a project with an Autumn or Autumn Holiday Theme

 Hello, Crafty Peeps!

I love fall!  My backyard is currently a riot of red, yellow, green, and orange!  "The Hubster" is not so happy because leaves are falling faster than he can mulch them.  He maintains the lawns at both of our homes and works this is the time of year that causes him the most headaches. 

The Fortnight Challenge at Shopping Our Stash is: "Create A Project with an Autumnal or Autumnal Holiday Theme."  You can make birthday, anniversary, or thank you cards and everything in between.

I have had this Tim Holtz Framelit Acorn Stamp and Die set for over 8 years and this is the first time I have used any of the elements.  The sentiment is an unbranded layered set.  I foiled the sentiment using my Go-Press and Foil Machine!

I don't know why Stickles never photographs as pretty as it is IRL.
I cut a second acorn from craft foam and adhered it to the back of the image.  I also added foam dots to the sentiment for dimension.

Anecdotally, "The Hubster" had one of the Oak trees on our second property cut down last year and now he misses the acorns...this card is for him. I look forward to seeing your entry in our challenge!  My teammates have created awesome samples! 

Thanks for the visit!

  4. I love all the gold, especially the splashes. Thanks for commenting my blog. I know you'll do a fantastic job with my mushroom digi, whatever coloring medium you use. hugs, Teresa

  5. Beautiful card, and I’m sure your hubby was delighted with it! The leaves are falling way too fast! Thanks for sharing!

  6. OH! This is beautiful Chana, Love the die and stamp, with the red card, so beautiful. Isn't it funny how we complain about the large trees and miss them when they are cut down? We had a large acer that had to be cut, this time of year it was a wonder and full of colour. I'm sure hubby will love this card to remind him LOL.
