It doesn’t seem like fall ever comes to Arizona. However, with the new So Thankful stamps & dies from LDRS Creative I am getting ready for fall. They are adorable and very versatile for all seasons! I plan to do just that. So I decided to stamp and cut a bunch.

Here’s a tip to make this task a lot easier:

Step 1. Lay out your dies and cut them.

Step 2: Remove them from the card stock.

Step 3: Place your stamps inside the spaces.

Step 4: Shut the door of your stamping platform to pick up the stamps.

Step 5: Now place the die cut pieces in the open spaces.

Step 6: Ink up the stamps and stamp. Repeat the process with however many pieces you have cut.

Step 7: Color to your hearts delight! This is the best way to cut multiple images at once. I try to do this with all my new sets so I have images ready.

After the images were cut and colored the card comes together easy. I dry embossed a piece of white card stock with the Modern Trellis Cover Plate. I cut it to 3.50 x 4.50. I placed this over a piece of the Songbird Fields Paper Pack that was cut to 4 x 5. The images were arranged on the front. The truck and a few bits were popped up with foam tape.

I then popped the entire panel up with foam tape and adhered it to a top folding card measuring 4.25 x 5.5.
Then I die cut the sunburst die and circle die from the Diagonal Stitched Postage Frames. I used the sentiment from the So Thankful stamp set and added these elements to the card. Sticklers were added to the leaves and used as embellishments. Glossy accents were added to the possums bow.

As always, thanks for stopping by. I am thankful for each and every one of you. Please subscribe to my blog and follow me on Instagram at @expressivepaper. Thank YOU!
