Autumn is a Second Spring

The winner of the Collage Sheet was
Elaine is the winner :0)

Hello Friends!!
Heather here and today I thought I would  share with you an Autumn themed card.  I just love this time of year!  The weather is perfect for me, not too hot...not to cold.
I thought I would create a simple collage sheet with some pumpkins and acorns on it.

Then I found a wonderful sentiment online.  "Autumn is a Second Spring, where all the leaves are Flowers."  I LOVED it.  So I incorporated it into my collage sheet.
Here is my card below.
 I used an ivory A2 size card stock base.  Added a layer of Kraft paper 4 by 5 inches in size.  I then cut out my collage pieces, and found a punched scrap piece of paper, which I decided to include in my design.  I inked everything with Ranger's Vintage Photo.
I used my Favorite Brown Sugar Baker's Twine wrapped three times around my post card piece.  I then wrapped more of the Baker's Twine around my fingers a couple of times, took another piece, and tied it in a knot around my loops to create a multiple bow.  I glued it in place above my pumpkin.  Here is a close up below.
I glued the punched piece to the back of my post card, and once the Brown sugar Baker's twine was in place, I glued this piece to my kraft paper layer.  To the left of my pumpkin, I added a piece of the Brown Crochet Lace. I topped it with the Autumn Leaves Grosgrain, one of the ribbons from this month's
  Autumn Ribbon Assortment.

  I used the Scor Tape to adhere the edges of both the lace and the ribbon to the back of my kraft paper piece.   I also used the Scor Tape to adhere my Kraft Paper piece to my card stock base.  I topped off the Autumn themed Really Reasonable Ribbon Goodies with some adorable buttons from both the Latte and Vintage Button Bonanza Collections.  I used the Designer Dries Clear clue to adhere the buttons to the ribbon.
My sweet little Acorn and Pumpkin pieces were adhered to the card with 3D Foam Tabs
One last look at the finished card.
 I Decided to add a few Glitters to my card.  I used Brown Gala Glitz on the edges, Rose Gold for my polka dots on the post card, Pumpkin to outline the pumpkin, Country red on the acorn top, Amazon Green for my acorn base and pumpkin leaf...and finally camel for the pumpkin stem.

  1. Great card and love that Autumn Collage sheet Heather. The September Ribbon Club Assortment is my favorite product at RRR. I love Fall colors!!

  2. Great card and fabulous collage sheet Heather. I just love RRR full stop and so wish we had it over in the UK. Love my ribbon club assortments and I think my favourite RRR product, aside of all the fabulous laces, is the wired burlap with the coloured stripes.

  3. Gorgeous card Heather, I love the lace and twine, you really wrapped the twine beautifully on this one too! ~Diane

  4. You want me to just pick one?!! I love them all. Every month the newest one, is my favorite!

  5. I love the theme, autumn is a second spring. My fave RRR is the ivory crochet lace in the center of this fall pack. I bought it as a single item. Since I do a lot of vintage, this seems to be my "go to" trim for a lot of projects. However, I also love my copper ribbon. It goes well with sepia/brown vintage projects. I'm really liking this new fall pack.

  6. Love your card!
    My favorite RRR product would be the crochet laces...or the twine...oh wait the bulap, mesh, hemp,, I love the silks...oh heck it's all great!

  7. Love the Autumn sheet and cards made from it.

  8. Love the September ribbons. Love fall colors. Love your card also! tjigo

  9. Wonderful autumn card. My favorite is the Hug Snug Seam binding.
