Autumn Greetings

After pulling out some fall stamp sets, I decided to make an autumnal version of the Mother's Day card I posted in May.

The results are fabulous!

The berries were stamped in Memento canteloupe, which is a pale orange, and then accented with two colors of darker orange Smooch and paprika Stickles. I love it with the Stickles instead of bling (although bling is always amazing!). There's a softer effect that works for least for me.

I tried to use the StampinUp banner dies that Eva gave me, but the largest was too small. This is a variation on the sentiment problem: you never have exactly the right size sentiment or exactly the right font. Dies, I suspect, are the same.

Anyway, all is well with Cooper. He's an amazingly chill puppy, so calm and relaxed. I suspect he's going to be extremely lazy. Perhaps neither of our two retrievers will retrieve.

stamps: Papertrey A Wreath for All Seasons, Hero Arts Autumn Blessings
ink: Memento canteloupe; Archival potting soil
paper: Papertrey white
accessories: dimensionals, Smooch, Stickles
