Clear Dollar Stamps October Blog Hop - Happy Fall, Ya'll!!

Welcome to the monthly Clear Dollar Stamps' Blog Hop!!! You should have come here from Lisa's amazing blog. If not, you'll want to start back at Clearly iStamp for the beginning of all of the fabulous projects being shown today.


What do you think of when you think about fall?? There are so many neat things that fall brings to my mind.... pretty leaves, crunchy leaves, bonfires, pumpkins, festivals, and so much more. I remember when I was a teenager - in the marching band (I was on the rifle squad) - at weekly football games. Each week, the weather would get a little cooler. At the end of October, the evenings at a football game would be quite chilly. I remember bundling up with a blanket or quilt in the stands as we waited to play the half-time show ..... and silently hoping that the team would lose so that we didn't have to go to playoff games that would be even colder!! That quilt and chilly weather were my inspiration for today's project.



Clear Dollar Stamps has an amazing set of dies and stamps that worked perfectly for my inspiration this time. Build a Quilt dies and Build a Quilt stamp set enabled me to create a quilted pattern right on my card without a ton of research or effort. It just brings back memories of chilly nights with a warm quilt keeping me warm!

Card Recipe :
stamps - build a quilt
paper - white, Yeehaw dp
ink - black
Copics - none
accessories - build a quilt dies, tag punch, ribbon, crystals, sewing machine, pop dots

  5. Great card Shell! I love hearing about your inspiration :) I just spent Friday night at the football game for my daughter's high school and I remember going when I was a kid - loved it. I would go every week but she won't go unless it is the major rival team we are playing, which by the way they trampled us :( Anyway, one of my favorite things about fall is bringing out the quilts! Thanks for sharing this sweet creation.
