Autumn Blessings – New Cuttlebug Pumpkin Harvest

It’s not autumn here yet but a girl can dream, right?  Am I the only one that sighs when I day dream about fall?  It’s seriously the most wonderful season and a wonderful prelude to winter.  Everybody else seems to be stamping autumn so I couldn’t stand back and be left out!   I am seriously patting my foot waiting for fall!  Okay, word association – fall festival, apple cider, hot chocolate, hay rides, bonfires, football games, leaves turning, snuggling in a blanket, nippy mornings, smores, pumpkin patch, homemade soup, blessings everywhere . . . are you there?

Here is another one of the new seasonal Cuttlebug Embossing folders.  Since I’m so partial to fall I can see using this many times.  I colored it with chalks – in both pattie form and pencil form and embellished with crystals. 


 Okay, I’m off to my stamp room to find more autumn stamps!  If I’m missing in action later on . . . don’t worry, I’m just off day dreaming.

    Word association? Oh yeah! Been there, done that… several times as a matter of a fact :D! Fall always makes me count my blessings even more. Your card is a perfect portrayal of autumn. The ribbon is so pretty and the use of crystals is awesome. My hubby just bought that stamp set for me a couple of weeks ago- don’t ya’ just love it :) ? Have a blessed day Becca!

    Autumn! What a great card for the season! :)
    Beautiful details in addition to the CB embossing!! The ribbon and the fall brads look so nice together!! Love the way you have added rhinestones to the embossed paper. Beautiful colours together!! :))

    Have a nice day, daydreaming or not!! :) ;)ReplyCancel

    This card just screams Fall! I love that fabulous ribbon and brads!! Fall is a season we skip over in Arizona, so I’m really looking forward to it this year in Korea – I can’t wait to see the leaves change and feel the cool breezes!

    Smiles from Korea,

    Autumn is actually my most favorite time of the year (I just don’t like what follows) Your card is so elegantly Autumn, it is beautiful. Do you popdot each layer?ReplyCancel

    Oh, yes! I’m there!! There is something all the more poignant about fall in America, though. (I’m in England.) Although, I noticed yesterday that the leaves on some of our trees are already turning, which strikes me as a little early.

    Anyway, I loved your word association! That would make a great ‘Wordle’! Have you seen that yet?

    Oh! And I love your Autumn card! :o)

    I love Fall. I love the colors and the smells of the season. Becca, I left you an award on my blog I hope you’ll have a chance to check it out. Thank you for inspiring so many papercrafters with your wonderful works of art.ReplyCancel

  • MrsHAugust 28, 2008 - 6:43 am

    Good afternoon, Becca. Such a beautiful card, the colours are so rich and warm. I love the duo ribbon, the brads, gems, sentiment and the little plaid corner is the piƩce de la resistance. I just love it, Becca.ReplyCancel

  • CarinAugust 28, 2008 - 6:58 am

    I love the card, but even more I love having 4 seasons here in northern Michigan… so many people want Summer to be here always, but I love the changing seasons & Fall is one of my favorites. It is such a cozy time of the year… I can’t wait to start wearing my jeans & a fleece pull-over!!! Thanks for sharing! Have a nice Labor Day weekend!ReplyCancel

  • Kelley HollandAugust 28, 2008 - 7:09 am

    Some more words….rainy days, cold weather, raking leaves, leafless trees, rainy days, raking leaves…oh, did I mention rain and lots of raking leaves??? Just kidding! I do like the very beginnig of fall but after that it is all down hill….
    Cute card, though!!!!ReplyCancel

  • MelanieAugust 28, 2008 - 7:19 am

    Your fall cards are absolutely stunning! I love fall too, because everything is still green and it’s nice to go outdoors without being too hot or too cold. :) Plus with the cool evenings, it’s nice to go for a walk after supper and not have to fight off swarms of mosquitos!ReplyCancel

  • Lisa D. AthaAugust 28, 2008 - 7:25 am

    Fall is my favorite time of the year! I love your card today, as I always do. Now I am absolutely screaming to go cuttlebug shopping. Thanks so much for providing such beautiful inspiration. I can smell the apple cider as we speak! God Bless.ReplyCancel

  • mary puskarAugust 28, 2008 - 7:31 am

    Becca: we are kindred spirits about the autumn thing. It’s my favorite season. I was married in October, 41 years this year! Your card is lovely. I have this folder so I must try the chalks. Congratulations on another beautiful card!


  • Katherine McKameyAugust 28, 2008 - 8:07 am

    Even though we don’t really have Fall here in South Texas (no changing of the leaves, etc) I still love it! I remember real seasons when I was a girl living on the Upper East Coast and seeing the leaves change colors and experiencing the wonders of Fall. Now we have to take a trip to see a difference in the weather and nature! Ah well, at least we don’t have to shovel the drive every morning before leaving for work or school! (Gotta find that silver lining even though it is 9am and already 97F!)

    This card is GORGEOUS!!! I will be scraplifting it later today! I just got this CB folder yesterday and have to play! : )

    Oh my!!! This is absolutely gorgeous!!ReplyCancel

  • LaurieAugust 28, 2008 - 8:44 am

    Gosh Becca, I am convinced you could cut a piece out of the Sunday funnies, add some ribbon and it would be a beautiful work of art! I love this. I for some reason think that a card must have layers and layers and tons of coloring and whatnot! I never think to do the very simple. You can do both. I love the way you make this look effortless, but I KNOW it is not. Thanks again for your wonderful inspiration. I love checking in with you daily!ReplyCancel

  • JoaniAugust 28, 2008 - 8:47 am

    Oh Becca! I just love this card! I love the “Fall” and all the colors that it brings. You did it once again, you amazed me!

  • jeannineSeptember 9, 2008 - 6:19 am

    And here I was thinking I was the last person around to love the fall! Everyone is always so forlorn to see the end of summer and they seem to forget the beauty of another season that is right around the corner! Anyway, just had to comment on how much I love your card – just beautiful! I really love your ribbon and fall brads – wherever did you find them? Thanks for sharing!ReplyCancel
