Autumn Splendor Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Blog Hop!


Yes, it's time once again for the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Blog Hop! Today, we're looking forward to crisp, fall-time temperatures along with the abundant harvests and gorgeous colors of the Autumn season!

AND... TWO (2)! chances at TWO (2) different blog candies...more about that below!


My simple and quick autumn design features leafy dies from Spellbinder's Assorted Leaves (NO stamping today!), available at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. This set includes four different leaves in assorted sizes...my favorite being the oak leaf.


I die cut the three oak leaves from a textured, nutmeg brown cardstock, then layered the three onto panels of KaiserCraft "Up, Up and Away"Collection (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store).

May Art's Ivory Twill (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store) and a copper brad finish this quick and clean lined card.

ONCE AGAIN: We do have blog candy! It's a mystery where it is--you must leave comments on all of the blogs in the hop to have a chance at it! Read more about it at Sharon's blog...

Here's the list!


and

my blog is last!

Thanks so much--I hope that you found some autumn inspiration here! Take Care!
