Hey y’all!!! Stephanie here from Coffee Stamps Chaos with a fun fall card using a Unity Stamp Co stamp from the August Kit of the Month, paired with a die cut sentiment from Gina Marie Designs and of course, my most favorite, can’t live without it supply… YUP! You guessed it, cardstock from Cardstock Warehouse!!!!
Happy Fall... I think… Okay maybe it doesn’t feel like fall where you live, but here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, our seasons aren’t on the same schedule as the rest of the world so we sometimes end up with several seasons in the same day. Weird I know, but I love my state with its very own seasonal clock. I also love fall, hot drinks, soups and stews, cozy socks and blankets and all the colors of the changing leaves, sunsets and textures; they inspire me to create.
As usual, when fall comes around, I find myself considering the things I am grateful for, which I do all year but fall cards usually have something to do with being thankful and grateful, so naturally, you consider those things a little more. Right now, I am grateful that school is back in session and ALL of my little kids are in school ALL day, a semi normal routine has returned to my house, my kids are excited to see their friends at school and excitedly come tell me all about what they’re learning. It also means fall is here, which means yummy crockpot soups, stews, and hot drinks make up regular meals in my home.
Fall also makes me think about food, I love food all year, but there’s something so satisfying about hot filling soups and stews that just makes me happy and content and make my house smell amazing. Food makes me almost as happy as craft supplies, but we aren’t here to talk about food, so let’s get to the details of this card creation!
