Simon's October CardKit!!

SSS_cardkit_oct13_final

I think this may be my favorite CardKit that I've received this year,  simply because it's fall-themed, and I am sadly in need of updated autumn stamps and elements.  Here's the card I made the day I received my kit:

SSS October CardKit

Love, love, LOVE the Lawn Fawn Into the Woods papers that are in this kit, and the sweet little tree stamp and lots of accompanying stamps to decorate it with!  So I stamped the tree and the multi-leaves,  then went back in with the single leaf stamp and added more colors to the leaves, using the paper that I included on my card as a guide: 2 blues, green, orange,and barn red distress inks.  The sequins, also from Lawn Fawn are just too cute not to use, so they were added after I put the rest of my card together.  Here's a closer shot to show off the gorgeous coppery maple leaf:

Here's a simple second card, using the striped paper, Kelly's alphabet stickers, and the chipboard heart and twine included in the kit:

Don't wait to order this CardKit - I guarantee you'll be kicking yourself when it sells out, as I know it will!

  1. So beautiful, Lin! There is just a tiny, tiny touch of fall here in the south - as I progress into the "fall" of my life - it has become my favorite time of the year. I kept seeing the CardKits so I decided I would try it and I loved my September kit. Looking forward to my October arriving after I have seen your inspiration. Have a blessed day!
