Hello everyone! I'm popping in today to share a few cards that I created with more new products from Spellbinders! Today I will be sharing two cards that I created with a die set from the new Happy Harvest collection by Nichol Spohr for Spellbinders. This collection of dies is so cute! I created both my cards with the Welcome Fall etched die set from the collection. (Compensated affiliate links used where possible.

I had a couple of ideas in mind as to what I wanted to make, but I thought I would see what Nichol did with the dies. I watched a replay of a Youtube live that she did where she created a card using her new dies. In the video she talked about how the branch from the Welcome Fall set could be used to create a wreath. I was like "duh"! Of course it would make a great wreath! I did some simple watercolor washes on watercolor paper using my Jane Davenport watercolors. Once they were dry die cut a ton of leaves and then added some detail in with Polychromos pencils. I die cut the branch from kraft and dark brown cardstock and then started layering them on a circle frame that I created using to different sizes of circle dies. I then layered up the leaves and finished with the bow I created from this lovely yellow twine I have. I die cut the kraft panel with the largest Essential Rectangle die. I have really old Spellbinders elongated rectangle dies so I pulled them out and found one that fit on my panel. I die cut the red polka dot paper with that. The sentiment is one I foiled awhile ago using the Mini Christmas Sentiments Glimmer plates. I die cut it and adhered it to the card front. The layout for my card is from Freshly Made Sketches so I will be posting it there. Freshly Made Sketches is celebrating 10 years of challenges! That is absolutely amazing! Congratulations to the FMS team for 10 years of super fun sketches!
Welcome Fall set. I die cut the three pumpkins and five apples. There is a separate die that cuts the pumpkin and apple stems. I assembled my pumpkins and apples and added some detailing with Polychromos pencils. I die cut the bushel basket (how cute is that bushel basket?!) from kraft and dark brown cardstock and assembled it. The sign was also die cut from kraft and assembled. The third card that I will be sharing was created using a new embossing folder from Spellbinders called Falling Leaves. I created multiple panels using the embossing folder as I was thinking about ideas. One panel was made using Spellbinders Barely Peach cardstock. I decided to die cut that with a Spellbinders circle die (no longer available) and adhered that to a plain panel of Barely Peach cardstock. I then created my little fall scene on the circle. The sentiment is from a Spellbinders small die kit that was released last year (the kit is still currently available). I die cut it three times, adhered them and added it to the sign. Will be posting this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.
