SSS October Card Kit

Hi Everyone! I hope you are well and enjoying the fall weather. It has been gorgeous in Ohio, and it’s hard to believe it’s November. My summer flowers still are holding onto their color in the porch planters! Amazing!

The kit contained some of my favorite Lawn Fawn seasonal plaid paper, orange and turquoise Archival Ink, and adorable acorn embellishments.

I’m finally back with some cards to share. I have struggled recently with my photography lighting. I don’t know whether I’ve gotten pickier or have tinkered with camera settings too much, but I haven’t posted because I was so unhappy with my pictures. Everything is getting better and these pictures are more along the lines of what I’m trying to accomplish. Now I just need to tweak things and find some better accessories.

I added white gel pen accents to my squirrels for dimension. I added colored pencil to this one for added texture.

The rest of this post will be short on words with a few pictures. (The best kind!) These cards were made using Simon Says Stamp’s October Card Kit. I’m getting better at keeping them simple so that I can create more cards in less time from the kits.

The stitched flag dies are from My Favorite Things. They are go-to for many of my cards.

These nesting scallop dies are from Kaisercraft. The stitched frame die was from Lawn Fawn.

I love the solid color cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. It’s my favorite as panels or card bases.  I’ve even gotten organized recently and finally have all my cardstock and papers organized!

Well, there you have it! Short and sweet this time. What do you think? What did you think of this month’s kit? I like the thank you combined with the autumn greetings stamps; very versitile this month. Love and crafty hugs!
