Pumpkin Spice Duo | Kindness of Others



Keeping things real here.  I'm still a die hard blogger at heart.  It's an easier social media for me to view and comment on.  Next month I celebrate 11 years...what? How could that happen?  Although these days I'm always on catch up mode for blogs, please know that I'm trying!!!

I was an IG late bloomer (April 2015).  That being typed, I've made so many IG friends and continue to be in awe of designers that I stumble upon.  So in walks Kelly (thesunshinecrafter1).  We share a mutual love of coffee.   Although based on consumption I think she has more caffeine than I do!  She totally cracked me up with a comment she left regarding her coffee order at Starbucks.  I sent her some happy mail and she sent me back some happy mail which included a beautiful card and a Sizzix Pumpkin Spice stamp + die set.  Score!  I didn't own that set so yesterday I worked on whipping out a couple projects featuring my new goodies:



 Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

So I had that Color Burst background already completed but it didn't work with my original project so I used it with my new goodies!


The Sepia color burst is gorgeous, isn't it?  It is filled with so many different colors.  The mug has been cut from Stampin' Up Baja Breeze (blast from the past, eh?).  The sentiment has been heat embossed with Zing - Apricot.

Happy Fall, Pumpkin


My next card combines Lawn Fawn Chill 6x6 paper + Happy Fall Line Border lawn cut.  I heat embossed the sentiment in black to coordinate with the Happy Fall.

This card was inspired by CAS(E) this sketch:


Big thank you Kelly!  Such a fun set!

  3. These are just gorgeous, Amy! I love that burst of colorful "flavor" and your wonderful warm fall plaids. You said it so well, I love the blogs, but I'm always playing catch up! Whether blogs, Instagram, or Facebook groups, it's always fun meeting new creative friends!

  4. You do great with your commenting! I've been horrid, but life gets in the way. We do what we can, and I think bloggers know how that goes. LOVE these pretty coffee cards. That colorburst is stunning! Amazing tones with the perfect coffee cup in a great complimentary color. LOVE that plaid, too. Wonderful cards my friend. Have a great week. Bev

  9. Awesome cards, Amy! The Color Burst BG is amazing (I'm too controlling when I use them!) and that's a fun take on the sketch!
