The Joy of Sets - October 2020 - Harvest Time banner
The Joy of Sets is a closed Facebook group full of papercrafters who love to stamp and create beautiful things whether it is cards, 3D projects, or scrapbooking.  The best part of the group is that we share the love of using whatever stamping supplies we have whether it's new or old.  If you need some crafting mojo with your supplies, this is a group you should check out!  And there are several group members who will be hopping every month throughout the year!

There's nothing like October to get you thinking about corn mazes, apple cider and fallen leaves...  so, this month's Harvest Time theme should get you feeling the love of this amazing season around us as we all share our fun projects!

I enjoy my daily walks with my dog along the metropark bike trail behind our property... especially at this time of the year.  I haven't felt the need to drive anywhere to see the leaves as I have for many years as I experience the leaves every day!  Each day is different and more beautiful!  The Love of Leaves Bundle has been one of my favorites to play with over the past few weeks and it was perfect for today's card.

Inspired from my walks, scraps from previous projects came together nicely to create this Mini Slim Line card.  The Stitched Leaves die negative was scraps from some of the Duoprinting with Chlorophyll cards I made last month.  The Very Vanilla watercolored background was the negative image from my World Dream Day project while the leaves were leftovers from my #JOSTTT022 design team inspiration.   

Two leaves were stamped in So Saffron onto Whisper White and sponged with Cinnamon Cider.  One leave was stamped in Cinnamon Cider.  Additional leaves were diecut from Very Vanilla cardstock and inserted in the openings to make the leaves appear to be floating on the card front.
The Country Home sentiment was stamped in Cinnamon Cider onto scraps of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, fussy cut and adhered to the frayed Braided Linen Trim with mini glue dots.

The inside was stamped while the envelope was lined with a sheet of DSP to compliment the card front.
