Around The World On Wednesday September Blog Hop Changing Seasons

Welcome to the Around The World On Wednesday September Blog Hop as we showcase projects with the theme of Changing Seasons. Here in the northern hemisphere, we are saying goodbye to Summer and preparing for the cooler weather that comes with Fall. Here in Colorado the leaves are already beginning to change and I love the colors of Fall. It's like getting a whole new palette of colors to create with and I can't wait to share them with you.
Today's card design is a wonderful Fall birthday card featuring the Nuts About Squirrels stamp set from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. I just love the cute images and fun sentiments in this stamp set and when combined with this beautiful Fall themed design from the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper, you have the perfect recipe for this seasonal card. The colors I chose for this card have been taken from the colors in the designer series paper for a wonderful clean and simple birthday design.

This beautiful clean and simple card showcases the wonderful Fall design of this pretty designer series paper. The great thing about the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper is that it has patterns suitable for all the seasons of the year. The squirrel is simple to create with the stamp images from the Nuts About Squirrels stamp set. I stamped the outline image of the squirrel with Early Espresso Classic ink and colored it using the solid images from the stamp set using Cajun Craze for the body, Soft Suede for the top of the acorn and Crumb Cake for the bottom of the acorn. I fussy cut the image and attached it to the Basic White circle with Stampin' Dimensionals and then attached it to the Early Espresso circle. For the sentiment, I stamped the Happy Birthday image with Early Espresso Classic ink and threaded a piece of the Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim through the hole of the tag. I tied a bow with the Linen Thread around the base of the Faux Suede Trim. I attached the sentiment tag to the card front with the Stampin' Dimensionals. This card design is great for people of all ages and works well as a masculine card design. I love the way this card design captures the feel of Fall with the warm colors of the leaves.
