Special Delivery of Autumn Wishes

I'm popping in today sharing a few Autumn projects that I have been working on over the last little while. There are always so many fun products that I don't get a chance to play with during the Papertrey Ink release, so I decided to pull a few out for today's projects! Today is the first day that feels like Fall might actually be on it's way!

I've been DYING to ink up the new Forest Floor: Autumn stamp set. It was love at first sight when I clapped eyes on that mushroom! I also paired it with the new Bold Borders: Foliage die. I love how quickly it adds detail to a card in such an elegant way.

I used Aqua Mist cardstock for the base of my card and die cut the Foliage die out of Saffron Spice cardstock. I really love this particular color combination and I feel like it captures the essence of the way Autumn actually looks! I also paired it with a jolt of Scarlet Jewel cardstock for the sentiment. I love that the Forest Floor: Autumn dies include the die for the sentiment. I love this particular shape and style. It adds so much to the overall feel of the card. 

The leaves are stamped in Saffron Spice ink; once at full strength and then again stamped off once. I really like that I was able to get double the leaves with one ink impression AND it gives so much dimension to the card. 
I used the same colors for the single mushroom in this card for an unexpected look. The second card, in the background features two toadstools; one red and one saffron spice. I also played around with different looks on each of the sentiments. 



 Who's in love with the new Dashing Through the Snow dies, raise your hand? I am smitten! So far these are the first of the three that I have made and I am in LOVE! They are so cute and so easy to assemble.

These 3 little pickups were commissioned for me to make by my son's speech therapist at school. Once I had them done, I wished I had 3 more to give away! I guess I know what I will be doing this weekend! LOL!

The tags are made using the oldie but goodie Autumn Abundance stamp set, which is being featured today for the "Throwback Thursday" post for PTI. It is really one of my favorites and I will never part with it. 

The bed of the trucks are filled with Werther's soft caramels in a cello bag tied up with Aqua Mist Satin Ribbon. The tag is tied on using some True Black Baker's Twine. I was feeling like the trucks were heading down the  masculine side, but add a ribbon and the tag and they are just as sweet as can be!


I have some tips on assembling these trucks. I 100 percent watched Betsy's video to give me all of her pointers but I found that I tweaked a few things here and there. If you are interested in me posting those tips, leave me a comment and I will put something together! Thanks for fluttering by!
