Harvest JOY w/Stamp Simply

Welcome by, everyone.  I'm so grateful to have you visit me today.  Knowing you've been here, reading your comments, and seeing all your wonderful creativity blesses me so much.  Please know that I am SO very grateful for every single person who stops here.  Since you're here, I hope you'll stay long enough to see this Autumn card I created for Stamp Simply Clear Stamps using just a few of their (many) amazing products.
I started with basic black cardstock and then I layered some of the lovely patterned papers from the 6x6 Carta Bella Welcome Autumn Paper Pad.  It's filled with gorgeous patterned papers that are perfect for Fall card-making.  I machine stitched the papers together with black thread.  I added a few sequins and a Tim Holtz miniature paperclip.
I used the Fishtail Banner Die-Cuts for the white sentiment strip where I placed the word JOY which was die-cut from basic black cardstock using the Peace & Joy Die Set.  The leaves were stamped using the beautiful Harvest Stamp Set, and I used Copics to color them.  They were die-cut using the coordinating Harvest Die Cuts.  There are SO many lovely sentiments in this set (as in all Stamo Simply sets).
I made a matching envelope for this card by simple taking an extra envelope I had on hand (you know, the kind that come in the mail when you make a charitable contribution) and I stamped the word Autumn across the pre-printed tree.  It's always quick and easy to make a matching envelope, and it adds so much to the card-giving experience.
Thanks again for stopping by my blog today, friends.  It really does touch my heart, bless me and make me grateful.  We all need encouragement now and then, and I always appreciate it more than you'll know.  Have a blessed week and please don't forget to stop by Stamp Simply to check out all their wonderful stamps and products.
