Autumn Beauty Blog Hop


When Theresa Momber sent me a message asking me to be one of her Guest Designers for her new Autumn Beauty stamp set I squealed with delight. This is another beautiful stamp set that Theresa has designed and I am so thrilled with this wonderful opportunity.

For this card I wanted to focus on the mailbox and sentiment: "From Our Family to Yours". The card base is the new Pumpkin Spice and I also used a piece of the patterned paper that was included in the Signs of Autumn Stamp TV Kit. The mailbox image was stamped using Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with Copics. I stamped the mailbox three times so I could add dimension by paper piecing it.


The fibers are from Basic Grey Ambrosia, as well as a piece of brown fiber that I had in my stash.

For more inspiration, please check in on our Illustrator of Autumn Beauty, Theresa Momber. She has also designed a beautiful digital paper pack called All About Autumn that is available for purchase as well. Be sure to leave a comment on Theresa's blog for a chance to win this stamp set!
