September ended with a Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse that made the leaves all start turning wonderful colors.  Now we’re kicking off October with some lighthearted leaves to make us start thinking about those Fall holidays.

Halloween has its own look for cards and decorations, but Thanksgiving carries on with a totally different approach.

And while we’re on the subject of Thanksgiving, I’d like to bark out a special thank you for those of you who participated in our Pup Club and Paper Pumpkin specials.  We’ll be doing some heavy mailing today and tomorrow.

Lighthearted Leaves

I must say that when we stamped this card, I was surprised that the Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz would cover the Sahara Sand as well as it did.  We actually stamped off the Sahara Sand to make it easy for the Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz to do just that.

And it paid off.

PSSST!  It’s not too late to get on our mailing list for the 12 Weeks of Christmas Card Ideas. Get on the list today because we’ve delayed sending the first week until later today.

Lighthearted LeavesI think we could stamp another stem on a scrap of Very Vanilla, cut it out with our Big Shot and stick it coming out from behind the greeting.  That would be just too cool, don’t you think?

My paws don’t layer ultra skinny borders too well, so I encourage Ann to use 3/16″ layers to make them thin but not so thin that they’re challenging.

Card making is supposed to be fun, you know!

And it is!

And do you notice that fancy little edge on the greeting?

Lighthearted Leaves Card

I told Ann how to do that with the Stampin’ Trimmer and the Tiny Wave Rotary Cutting Blade that works with the Rotary Addition.  Because the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set is a photopolymer one, it’s easy to stamp on a 2″ square that she pre-cut with those zig zaggy edges.

And here is what else we used to make this fabulous fall card that’s perfect for Thanksgiving or any time.
