Hi there friends! I hope you all had a nice weekend. On Friday, I attended two Lawn Fawn classes with Jenn Shurkus at the Inspiration Station in Stafford Springs, Connecticut, with three fellow crafting friends. If Jenn is ever in your area, you have to take a class with her! She has so much energy and creates super cute cards. She's also a total cat mom so that makes her A-ok in my book! On Saturday, I spent most of the day preparing for two stamps camps that I have this week in my home. And, finally on Sunday, I spent the day playing with a few stamps sets from Heffy Doodle that I'll be featuring here later this week! So, yes, I was very busy and while it was a lot of crafty fun, it can also be exhausting too!
Today I'm happy to share with you two cards that I made recently on our crafting weekend in Vermont. It was my first time using this sweet Harvest Mouse stamp set by My Favorite Things. It is a great stamp set for fall cards.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Crushed Curry cardstock. I layered a sheet of Lawn Fawn brown plaid paper as the first matted layer. I cut a frame using Crushed Curry cardstock. All of the images from the Harvest Mouse stamp set were stamped on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink. The images were colored using Spectrum Noir alcohol ink markers. Highlights were added to the images using a white gel pen. The images were placed within the frame using pop dots for added dimension. Lastly I added Crystal Effects to the pumpkins and apples for a glossy accent.
Here is the second card I created using the Harvest Mouse stamp set:

I hope you have enjoyed both of today's fall themed cards.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
