Painted Autumn Merry Cafe

Painted Autumn Merry Cafe card from

September is almost here and my yard is beginning to look a bit like Fall.  I keep thinking it’s too early but, it probably isn’t.  Last night, I was cutting designer paper from the Holiday Catalog and decided that I needed to play with some of it right away.  That’s where my Painted Autumn Merry Cafe card originated.  Just pulling bits and pieces out that I wanted to have a go with.

I started with a piece of Crushed Curry cardstock.

Then, I stamped a random pattern with a leaf stamp from Merry Cafe.

Over that, I added a strip of Painted Autumn designer paper in a geometric pattern.

I Love that the papers have “neutral” designs on one side — not season specific!

Next, I added a strip of Cherry Cobbler 1/4″ Double Stitched Ribbon.

Using the Hexagons folder, I embossed a piece of Soft Sky.

After cutting out my Soft Suede coffee cup with the Coffee Cups Framelits,

I added a Very Vanilla sleeve with more images from Merry Cafe.

Next, I tucked in a piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon that I tied with Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine.

And finished with Iridescent and Metallics Sequins.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Painted Autumn Merry Cafe card!
