Blessed to Call you Friend

Today I have another interactive card to share with a flair toward Fall.

Jen Carter Reap Harvest Tombstone Thankful

I love the contrast of color against black & white stripes so that I how I started this card.  I used the Tombstone Peek-a-boo die from Lil' Inker Designs to create the interactive element to the card by die cutting it into the top center portion.  I love that one side of the die scores so that it creates a "door" but also a perfect frame.  To decorate the sides of the frame I used the lovely new Fall stamp set Reap a Harvest and the coordinating Reap a Harvest dies.  The sentiment, embossed in copper, is from Pumpkin & Flower Greetings stamp set.

Jen Carter Reap Harvest Tombstone Thankful Partial Open

With the frame partially opened the card looks like this above.

And here it is fully opened.  I used the sentiment (LOVE this font!) and more Fall floral decorations from the Reap a Harvest stamp set.  The card does still open so that you can write on the inside, just like a normal card would.

Thanks for joining me today!

Give Thanks!

Jen Carter Stitched Pumpkins Ornate Thanks

Sometimes there is a die that comes along that you just absolutely love.  I can say that about this new Give Thanks die from Frantic Stamper.  It is beautiful!  There are even little "extra" pieces that you can use to paper piece some of the flowers with!  I layered that sentiment on top of two pumpkins that I cut using the Stitched Pumpkins die set.  They were all placed on top of a patterned wood panel die cut with Elementals #1.

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Today I am joining in on the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! I do enjoy a good cup of (very flavored!) coffee!  Yum!

For my card today I first want to share my inspiration.



And my card...

Jen Carter Fall Coffee Cozy Wishes 1

I wasn't sure that it would make sense without seeing the inspiration photo first!  I used products from Lil' Inker Designs to recreate the photo.  I started by first die cutting the awesome leaf  from patterned paper with the Leaf Loves Dies.  I then die cut a circle from the Stitched Mats: Circles die set and stamped the leaf from the cute (and new!) Reap a Harvest stamp set.  I added a handle using a little piece from the Mini Bow Die Set.  The sentiment is perfect for Fall and is from the Coffee Cozy Stamp set.  Last but not least, I die cut a border on my wood paper with the largest die in the Stitched Mats: Side Stitched Rectangle set.

I had a fun time playing with these colors.  At first they had me stumped, but once I found this fun cat paper print, it all started to come together.  The speech bubble is from a PTI stamp set called Sweet Speech.  The cat paper was die cut with Lil' Inker Designs new Wonky Rectangles Dies and the outer edge was diecut with Stitched Mats: Side Stitched Rectangles.

Here's this week's inspiration photo with the challenge colors.
