Paper Crafting Blog Hop October 2022 - Thinking of you!


Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop for October 2022 - featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia. We have a wide array of projects and design styles to share with you this month - all about "Thinking of you!"


I love fall - the crispness in the air, the food and drinks, cinnamon and apples - but mostly the changing leaves. We were fortunate enough to be in Tennessee and West Virginia last week and witness the beauty first hand - so as I created today, that was on my mind. I started with one of the smaller branches from Forever Fern - and using a mask cut with our Layering Circles dies out of post-it paper - I created a wreath.

This is so simple to do, and creates such an impact when you remove the post-it!

Then I cut out layer circle of the same three colors - Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive - and created a focal point in the middle of my wreath.

This set didn't have a "thinking of you", so I pulled out my Soft Seedlings set - which had a perfect one. Wrapped it with a little linen thread and tied a bow - then added some of our Champagne Rhinestone gems. Just so beautiful in it's simplicity.

Of course - I had to decorate the envelope to match and I love how it turned out.
So what do you think?  I love it - perfect colors for this time of year - and who can't use a few more thinking of you cards, right?

I hope you got some inspiration from this card. Thank you so much for stopping by and I would love to hear your thoughts and comments!

Your color choices are spot on for matching the changing leaves here in central Maryland! I love the colors of fall, too. Thanks for sharing your beautiful card!
