Harvest Joy

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday! This week is just zipping by so quickly. Seems like I’ve hardly blinked, and we’re half way through the week already. Today I have a card to share that’s a real mix of old and new, with a little bit of stamping thrown in, too.

While doing a little clean-up yesterday, I uncovered a stash of old fall-themed stamps hidden away in my armoire. I figured it was high-time to pull them out, dust them off, and put them to good use. The leaves and pumpkin used here come from the All About Autumn set from Stampin’Up, circa 2002. The joy sentiment is from the Small Script set, and is almost as old. I stamped the sentiment onto patterned paper, and trimmed it out for a fun look.

Also added some brand-new-to-me items fresh from the post office, including some new Webster’s Pages goodies. Love, love, love that lace trim from the Western Romance Trim Kit. I always love Webster’s trims…….but this one is definitely one of my top faves.

Papers are from the 6×6 Sunshine paper pad from My Mind’s Eye. Thought the October Afternoon alpha stickers and the Crate Paper Portrait brads were the perfect match. Added a new designer stickpin from Webster’s Let’s Celebrate line, as well. Really happy with the whole combination.

How I do love mixing the old with the new. How about you?

  1. Love this card, Audrey! Those older stamps you used are perfect here. I love the sheet music paper and lace. Gives it a vintage look. Also love how the pumpkin is set in the pleated flower. Mixing old and new certainly works beautifully!

  2. Gorgeous card Audrey!! I love it all! The pumpkin stamp is so cute and I’m with you on the lace trim, it’s beautiful and shabby! Isn’t it great to go through stuff and find things that you haven’t used in years and there still in style! I do find some out of style things in my stuff and ask myself why did I ever buy that? LOL! Your card is perfect for our cooler weather expected in a few days, I’m so excited for temps in the 50’s after a super hot summer! Have a great day!
