Hello, Diane with you today!
Do you ever start a card, have an idea,
then have it turn into entirely something else?
Well, that is what happened with this card.

I cut a few dies, plus the dies you see I used  here, 
and next thing you know I didn't use any of the originally planned die cuts.
However, I like the simplicity of this card.
A good one to send in the mail!


I started with a cream base, then die cut Spellbinders Cattails.
This is a somewhat intricate die and a little hint to get it
to release easily, is to place a piece of wax paper directly on
the die, then your paper, then cut.
It just pops right out and all you need to do then is peel of the wax paper.

The cattails were adhered down with  Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive,
just  on the bottom section to hold it in place.
I wanted the cattails themselves to be free standing.


Next I popped up a couple of pumpkins cut from
Memory Box Stitched Pumpkins.
There is a 3rd and larger size included I didn't use on this card.

I added a few leaves using Impression Obsession Small Leaf Set.

The leaves and the pumpkins were popped up with

The sentiment is from a Flourishes set I purchased at Classy Cards 'n Such
which is no longer in stock,
however, there are other Flourishes stamps still available,
so hurry and grab them while you can!

Thank you for visiting with me today!

I LOVE this card! The dies cuts are awesome and look fabulous cut from the designer papers you chose. And, yes, that happens to me all the time, and the die cuts pile up and then I need to design more cards around them.
