This new set Welcome Fall Etched Die (Happy Harvest) designed by the talented Nichol Spohr is just delightful.

Each die piece is self-explanatory and well thought-out.  You will have no difficulty assembling your darling Fall scene. I  picked out all my favorite Distress Oxide and had a ton of fun inking the dies up.

 The only un-inked paper is the grassy hill. I used THIS color paper pad as it fits well with the scene.

My 2nd card is all about the Silver Bells. Previously, I made another card with Silver Bells (see here). Thanks to the delicate details of the bells, it does not require a lot of work to showcase it.

joy to the world

I thought 3 bells looks quite nice as a group and that's what I came up with.

 Other than inking up the bell in the middle, I used pattern paper (from last month's Card Kit) for the background. joy to the world -003

 I love the delicate DMC Metallic Thread which are perfect to dress up the bells.DSC_0027 (5) 

Both card's sentiment were created from Joyous Bird Stamp (it's on sale!!). Here is  another example of mine with Silver BellsChristmas Blessings -003

I like the Joy to the World Bell card. The purple paper gives it a sense of whimsy while the rest of the card is more elegant. It is a nice paring.

Oh that Fall scene reminds me of clear blue skies and crisp weather. Such a beautifully crafted card. And those lacy bells are so beautiful. Once you assemble them and add pretty patterned paper, you card is done. LOVE your mix of colors.

Thanks for the inspiration!

MaryH said...

Really like your take on not connecting the bells together but using them just as you cut them (flat) and the dimension from layering them on top of each other. Your coloring is fabulous and the bright fall colors are so appealing!

Oh, I love your cards. The autumn scene is really wonderful. Not commercial at all, just sweet....BLESSINGS.
