Saturday Autumn Essentials

Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme Is "Autumn Essentials" and that means our favorite Fall things! That's an easy one for me - my absolute favorite thing about Fall is the changing leaves. I am simply overwhelmed by the beauty when it's the peak of the colors, and that's coming up in about three weeks!

I got to preorder a bundle that will be in the Jan-Jun Mini Catalog, AND will be an early release for customers starting next month! It's called Curvy Celebrations and it has the Quite Curvy photopolymer set and Curvy Dies to match. There's also a Curvy Christmas photopolymer set and some DSP, but today I'm focusing on those lovely leaves.

I put the full Fall spectrum on there, starting with just the hint of yellow in the green, all the way to full-on burgundy turning russet. And aren't those birds just the cutest? That's another thing I love about Fall; the bugs are going away, and there will be fewer seeds for the birds, so I can hang the feeders with suet cakes again. Love watching them feeding!

That's my share for today. Now click the Next button to jump to Libby Fens at Libby Stamps, or the Back button to see what Mary Brown at Stamper Camper's Corner made!

  1. Was debating whether to buy the Curvy set but your card has convinced me I 'have' to have it..LOL! your card!

    1. Thank you so much! Always happy to enable, LOL!

  2. I love this card, Cindy, and can't wait for my Curvy order to arrive, when I'll be CASEing your card!!

  3. I love how this came out! Can't wait for my order to arrive next week. This is a perfect fall card.. Thanks for sharing :)

    1. Thank you! I just adore everything about this time of year. ;)

  4. Cindy, I love this card and have tried to duplicate the cuts. Could you tell me how you got the curves to match with the holes in the middle. Every time I cut it I can’t get the curves to match. Thanks for sharing this great card.

    1. Judy, they actually don't match exactly. I cut two with the dotted curvy die and flipped one around 180 degrees, then trimmed them to fit the card and embossed them. Hope that helps!


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
