Autumn Birthday Card

  Hello there, Thanks for stopping by. Can't get over that it will soon be Halloween. It will be Christmas before we know it.  

Haven't been crafting as much as I would like to, have been having a a lot of trouble with my back. It's really hard for me to sit for very long on my craftroom chair. 

I did manage to get a card done and wanted to share it with you all.

For this card I used a cute stamp and die set from Scrappy Boy Stamps called Happy Fall Y'all.

Colored the images with Arrtx colored pencils. I used a blending pen from Tim Holtz to blend the colors. ( Love that pen)

Used a stitched die to cut out the little cloud. The blue cardstock is made of a textured material. I actually got it from the Dollar Tree awhile back. It came in a paper pack with all sorts of different types of cardstock and in different sizes. 

Also used a rectangle scallop die and the orange polka dot paper is from Stampin Up. Cardstock used is Early Expresso from S.U. and white. The sentiment is from a foam stamp set that I got years ago.

A few months ago my granddaughter Scarlett ask me if I would make her a little glow in the dark ghost. So I ordered some yarn from Amazon and made this little cutie.

I hadn't crocheted for a good while so I was a little rusty. Ordered the eyes from Temu and the black sheer sparkle ribbon is from Stampin Up. The inside is filled with poly fill. 

This little spooky girl was fun to make and my granddaughter was so surprised. She didn't think I would make it. 

Hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog today and hope you have a wonderful day.

  1. What an adorable card! Love the little critters and especially the scalloped die. Sorry to hear about your back. My sciatic bothers me sometimes and it is not a good thing. Cute ghost. My Granddaughter wants to learn how to crochet so I got her a Wooblies Kit. We'll see how she does. Feel better soon!
