Hello!! This is the first time I have participated in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. When I think about Fall I think about the leaves turning colour and of Thanksgiving, which is in early October for us Canadians (can't wait for turkey and all the trimmings!).
Okay, the story on these cards...I saw this wonderful branch used as a background stamp on a card displayed at CHA. I wasn't ACTUALLY at CHA, I saw the card in a photo on Dawn McVey's blog in this post. Since then I have been on a mission to find it. I went thru Nichole's archives and found the very card and name of the set! Lucky for me my good pal Char owns the Beautiful Blooms set so I was able to get my hands on this stamp. It coordinates with the Green Tea Leaves paper perfectly. I have seriously debated buying the set for this single image!!
I only intended to make a single Thank You card but was having so much fun with the background stamping that I decided to make a set in rich fall colours. But I wasn't quite done after 4 cards so I continued with the coordinating colours of the Green Tea Leaves paper. All products are PTI except the Ali Edwards sentiments from the Loving Words set, Versamark and Tim Holtz Distress Ink. I have some special people in mind that I will send these cards to this Fall. I actually made another 2 other cards with the background image as well. So after 10 cards I am *almost* ready to return this set to Char!
Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I can't wait to check our all the other projects myself.
