Happy Autumn - Altenew + The Stamp Market | Delicate Series

It’s hard to believe that Autumn is inching near. Every year, it sneaks up, seemingly overnight.
The leaves change into a million dazzling hues, while crisp air and dewy mornings overtake the Summer heat right before our eyes. Areas of our garden that were once drenched in sunshine, are now covered with acorns and leaves...Swirling about, as the winds pick up pace.

The chill in the air begins to call for chunky blankets and knitted sweaters, and all things hot and cozy once again take center stage. I may not love the cold, but I sure do love all the simple joys it brings. Evenings by the crackling fire, hot bevys to warm the soul...Doesn't it all sound idyllic?

But more than any of these things, the one pastime I'm particularly fond of with all the hibernation to come...More time in the craft room.
It’s a welcome change of pace - one that I’m very much looking forward to.


Today's card celebrates Autumn in all its glory, with leafy letters and patchy pumpkins.


To start it all off, I added a heap of scallops to my card base, using these Scalloped Border dies, adding in a few patterns and some Nuvo drops.


The pumpkins I used here are an old favorite from PTI, so I've linked up some alternatives below.


For the gorgeous lettering, I used the Skinny Upper Alphas from The Stamp Market. 
I adooooooore these little fellas! They make it so easy to add longer words to cards, but because they are nice and tall, they never seem to get lost amidst other design elements. And they are perfect for stamping on. Here, I used the Ditsy Print from Altenew.


The 'happy' word is from the Hip Hip Hooray set.
A few rhinestones and crystals remind me of swirling leaves dancing with the wind :)
Isn't crafting lovely this time of year?

Would love to know your favorite pastimes once the chilly weather sets in!
