Make It Market - Autumn

Hello My Crafty Friends!  Welcome!  Welcome!  Welcome!

Welcome to my little corner of the crafting world.  I hope you're enjoying every minute of summer as we're coming into the home stretch of August with less than a month until the official flip into Fall.

I LOVE this time of year!  All of my crafty neighbors are switching gears and starting to make holiday cards and I get so excited to see the fall colors and the new lineup of seasonal eye candy all over the internet and social media.

With that being said, I have this Autumn make to show you, inspired by some of my favorite things from Papertrey Ink.  Melissa Phillips of PTI did a live zoom class a few weeks ago featuring this awesome little stamp, die and stencil set called "Make It Market Mini Kit - Color Pop Autumn".

As Melissa was creating some beautiful examples, I jumped on the PTI website and ordered the kit along with their "Shape Up Series - Pumpkin" set that I've had my eye on for a while.  I had this brilliant idea to combine the two and make a card featuring both sets.

I first stenciled and then stamped the gorgeous leaves, stems and berries.  Then I die cut that piece using the Pumpkin Sections die.  I wanted to keep the sections separated, so I used the same die to cut kraft cardstock, using the negative to outline around the cuts and using those extra positive pieces to raise up my stamped sections.

And, of course, I had to add a tag but didn't want it to intrude on the design, so I tucked it behind and used the stem as the pull.

What do you think?  Please let me know in the comments section below and, while you're there, I would love to hear about your favorite time of the year.

I hope you have the best day!
