Thursdays with Lindsay

Good Morning!  I hope your week is going well so far.  Since the first days of Fall are upon us (except for those of us in Florida) I made a card showcasing some wonderful images from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff that were released last year.  I used Leaf Prints and Leaf Prints Add-On (freebie) to create my really easy Fall card.  I also called upon the help from a very great sketch by Mercy Kerin.


The Leaf Prints Add-On freebie, printed as is, is a great card base.  Just print, cut and fold.  What could be easier?!  However, I cropped it from the card and sized it to create a mat.  Then I printed up one of pretty leaves from the Leaf Print digi set after my son and I colored it digitally.  Oh and get this!  I even created my own large scallop border using a digital image, SCAL and my Cricut!  I am learning so much about what SCAL can do.  Yay me!  LOL

Supplies:
Card stock:  Neenah Milled Ivory, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Dusty Durango
Tools:  CM Oval cutters, Cricut/SCAL, SVG by me
Embellishments:  button (my stash), Olive satin ribbon (Offray), Prima leaves, linen thread (SU)

Now in honor of the changing season, everything at MyGrafico is on sale - 40% off!!  What better time to stock up on your favorite Lindsay's Stamp Stuff images.  She's introduced two new sets that you're definitely going to want in your collection.



This card is so easy.  Once I got the SVG figured out, it literally only took minutes to put together.  I hope this inspires you to pull out your easy tools and create quick cards to share with your friends and family.  Now go shopping!

I know I've said it before but this is YOUR set Melissa, every time you use it magic happens! one question though, how come it is not fall in Florida? does it have something to do with daylight savings? how odd:)
