Hello and welcome to the September Coffee and Cards with Celeste and Deb! This month we are drawing inspiration from this gorgeous photo. I absolutely love fall and this year we are actually being blessed with cooler temps and beautiful fall foliage! This card cost me less than $3 to create. Yes, less than $3! I was shopping at my local Target last weekend and happened open the most adorable fall themed paper pack in the dollar spot. In that paper pack was a fun stencil. I couldn't resist...I bought it and another pack that was similar in style but had different colors. So, to create my card I started by layering some early espresso cardstock from Stampin' UP onto my white A2 card base and then layered the pretty fall themed patterned papers on top. Using a pierced edge oval die from My Favorite Things I die cut a panel and stamped the sentiment from a Stampin' UP Halloween stamp set using some Gina K charcoal brown ink. Then using the stencil and more of the Gina K charcoal brown and mango inks I created the fun pumpkin shape. Then I stamped the fun Jack O'lantern face using a stamp that I also found in the dollar spot at Target. To finish the card off I added brown dashed lines around the outer edge of the focal panel to help it pop against the patterned paper and then added foam tape to help pop it up off of the card. I love how sweet that Jack O'lantern face is!
For my coffee choice this month I opted for some pumpkin spice cold brew from Starbucks! Sorry no pic...I drank it while I was out driving and completely flaked on the photo! LOL
Now, be sure to pop on over to Deb's site and see what fun she created using our inspiration photo!
