Happy Thanksgiving with Fond of Autumn

Last week I shared a sweet card with the Fond of Autumn Bundle that cropped out three of the four images in the largest stamp in that set (if you missed it, you can see it here). After I had cropped out the flowers and coordinating leaves, I was left with one piece – the oak leaves with acorns. Not one to waste, I put that image to work on the card I’m sharing with you today. Here’s my card:

Fond of Autumn Bundle, Painted Pheasant, Stampin Up!, Brian KingI colored the leaves with Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends and the acorns with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends – such a beautiful image to frame the sweet sentiment from Painted Pheasants. Here’s a look at the Fond of Autumn Bundle:

Here’s a graphic I created to show how these images can also be cropped:

Autumn Bouquet Bundle - one stamped image, five die cut options, Stampin Up!, Brian KingHow fun is that?! The oak leaves at the heart of this bouquet seem to have arms open for the next guest on stage – perfect to tuck a little sentiment to the right of them. Here’s a closer look:

Fond of Autumn Bundle, Painted Pheasant, Stampin Up!, Brian KingI love the font in the sentiment from Painted Pheasant. I’m still pretty sure I won’t use the bird that’s at the center of this stamp set, but I”m pretty happy with the sentiments and other elements. Here’s a look at Painted Pheasant:

I love this pattern – and the leaves really pop against the muted pattern behind them. The colors and patterns on this card really say “Happy Thanksgiving” or “Happy Fall” to me.

  1. I love Fall and your card cries Fall. I have the pheasant set and am anxious to see what you did to it too. Unfortunately I think you forgot to put that card up. Or I’m just not seeing it. Maybe I’ll catch it on Facebook.

  2. Marvelous use of what you had left. Simple and clean!

    Dear Brian,
    As usual, I didn’t look long enough at this bundle in the catalog!
    Thank you for bringing it to “my” attention. 😉 We really don’t have “fall” down here in the SW part of FL, though the rest of my life I did live where we did. The dies in this set are really the eye catcher for me. Plus, Fall isn’t the only season for some of the floral images😉
    Have a lovely day!

  4. This Thanksgiving card is a classic, traditional colors and well done! Love the plaid!

  5. Love this card and your coloring plus the plaid background!

  6. Yes ! This is my favorite image of the group ! Love the background to frame it for a Fall picture . I love plaid for Fall cards ! Pretty !

  7. Awwwww, my friend what beautiful cards , so Fall, Tfs

    Hugs Frenchie ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

  8. A very handsome card today Brian. Colorful, but not too bold. I like it!

  9. I love this card with this color combination and great floral image from your previous card. The font of your sentiment is very nice. Good job finding it in another stamp set, which is one of your strong points. Enjoy your day!
