Autumn Tree Leaves

Hi Creative Friends,

I know we have been featuring lots of holiday card designs but since it is still Autumn I decided to pay tribute to the stunning Fall colors and there is no better way to do that than to use a beautiful Penny Black stamp! Once again, I used the fountain of inspiration from Mimi’s Mimi A La Carte Facebook account for this card.

The stamp is called Winter Still. The title is a little confusing to me but nonetheless, it features glorious leaves and the Always Thankful sentiment stamp set is just too perfect not to use!

Sweet Holly Birdie

Hi Creative Friends,

As we go along in the Autumn and Winter season, I will share a mix of Fall, Winter, and Holiday cards. This one is a perfect winter or holiday one. It features the charming Feathered stamp and Nature’s Garland by Penny Black. The Feathered stamp has three adorable and festive birds but I am only using one for this project, though I am eager to use it again with the three!
