Celebrate A Fall Birthday x 4

Welcome, friends, and happy Tuesday.  :-)

I really like the autumnal birthday cards I'm sharing today, because they totally remind me of my friend Stella's style.  And I adore Stella.  In fact, the Papertrey Ink sentiment (Think Big Favorites #15) is one she uses often, and upon seeing it at her blog, I just had to have it.  You know how that goes.


The little felt leaf stickers were a gift long ago from my friend Emily.  They go perfectly with a smattering of sequins on a manila tag from Staples.


Stamps: Think Big Favorites #15 - Papertrey Ink Paper: Cajun Craze, Soft Suede, pattern - SU; manila tag - Staples Ink: black - Rubber Stampede Fibers: twine - Creative Impressions Accessories & Tools: felt leaf stickers - Target's Dollar Spot; Matte Gold sequins - MJ Trimming; Sand sequins - Pretty Pink Posh

I thought I'd add in all the other cards I made that same day, which include many of the same ingredients.






These leaves have a little somethin'-somethin' going on.  One features crackle paint and distress ink, the other is painted in a shimmery champagne color.


Thanks so much for your visit today!

You are very good at making a simple card look like so much more. These are all beautiful! I hope you will always find time to stamp because I would miss my Colleen otherwise.
