Randi's Song for Autumn

When it comes to autumn my go to stamp set is Randi's Song by Our Daily Bread Designs.  I've mixed up colors and have created numerous cards with this pretty set.

I stamped the Ecclesiastes 3:1 in StazOn Timber Brown on a piece of Shimmery White paper, which was cut from a Spellbinders Small Long Rectangle die.  I then sponged the paper with Barely Banana, So Saffron, Summer Sun and Really Rust.  This piece was layered onto a piece of Early Espresso.

The leaf image was stamped on Shimmery White paper using a Kaleidacolor Autumn Leaves ink pad then I sponged the leaf with Barely Banana, So Saffron and Summer Sun.  A corner rounder was used on the edges.  I adhered this to a piece of Crushed Curry cut from a Small Classic Square #5 die, which I also rounded the corners.  Everything was layered onto a piece of Early Espresso using an Eyelet Square #3 die.  I weaved a piece of naturals hemp cord through the eyelets.  The card base is Crushed Curry with Early Espresso.  Next, I ran a piece of Really Rust through the Big Shot using a Cuttlebug Victoria Embossing Folder.

The inside sentiment by Impression Obsession was stamped in StazOn Timber Brown and embossed with clear embossing powder with a heat gun.  The tree cluster was stamped using the first two colors of the Kaleidacolor ink pad.

I've missed blogging with all of you.  I hadn't planned on taking a break - it just happened.  I appreciate everyone who still comes by to visit me and leave a comment.  If you are on Facebook you can follow Donna's Designs there too.

Wishing you a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!

Mini Muslin Gift Bag Holder

Hello Crafters,

Today I have a super easy project to share with you.  I've had these Stampin' Up Mini Muslin Bags forever and finally decided to use one for a gift card holder.  Tell me why did I wait so long?

For You was stamped in StazOn Timber Brown on a Spellbinders Gold Labels Four Die.  A little Brilliance Pearlescent Beige was added to the edges.  I then popped it up on a Labels Four Small Die cut from Close to Cocoa Paper.  The tag was hung from Baker's Twine.

I created a bow using Winter White seam binding and added the kraft paper leaf dipped in wax.  These I had purchased several years ago on Etsy.  

I think I'm addicted to these bags now!  My mind is swirling with ideas.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend as we start to think about the Thanksgiving Holiday.

A Dusting ...

Our first dusting of snow arrived last night ...

It feels as though autumn came and went so quickly.

It was a late start and now the leaves are crisp and speckled with snow.

The gardens last hurrah.

A new season is beginning.  The thermometer is at 26.8 degrees.

The pond has a thin glaze, but the Koi do not mind.

It's official, hot cocoa season has arrived.

Thank you for stopping to visit.

Stay warm!
