PapertreyInk September 2015 Blog Hop


September 25th is blog hop time at PTI,
and this month Nichole gave us this inspiration:


Autumn holds promise of holidays, family and
hopefully cool weather!

Because I send out Halloween and Thanksgiving cards, 
Nichole's timely inspiration gave me the chance to do 4 cards celebrating fall.
Hope you like them!

All stamps: PTI


Do you recognize the sets I used?
Trying to keep a one layer for easy mailing.


Got a couple of birthdays in October. 


The chalkboard technique has endless possibilities & is so much fun to
combine sets, and sentiments.


The only one with enamel dots, might have to deliver this in person.


and the 4th card with the chalkboard technique,


for a dear friend,


All the different technique touches learned by watching Betsy's MIM video, below:

Happy hopping, 
can't wait to see all the beautiful card art!

  3. What fun and beautiful cards! I love that you added color to the chalkboards! The last card amazes and inspires me. I'm such a CAS girl though so I don't think I could ever make a card like that.

  4. Is it wrong to get SO excited when I see your name on the thumbnails?? I just know I'm going to see so much lovely inspiration, and you definitely did not disappoint today Nancy!! Love your trick or treat card with the orange embossed pumpkins and banner...fun, fun, fun! And your birthday card...who would ever have thought of using a gingham background with the chalkboard technique...totally LOVE it! And that Twig Wreath done all in white against the black...stunning!! And I mail with enamel dots all the time...just turn the card inside out before putting it in the envelope...mails beautifully!! Your last card is my favorite and I so wish I was your dear friend. It is just over the top gorgeous Nancy, and is definitely going to bring a smile to your dear friends face!! Have fun hopping and a great weekend!! :0)
