Rusty Muffin Tin Decor

Here's a rusty muffin tin turned primitive decor

The heart reads:

"Blessed" Fall Banner

I made this banner to hang on my piano this autumn, and decided to offer it in the shop as a fall banner kit.
The banner is made of kraft cardstock (inked in brown ink) and features black letters spelling out your choice of
1. Blessed
2. Grateful
3. Thankful
The cards have dictionary leaves (layered on white cardstock for stability) also inked in brown ink.
Each end has a larger maple leaf with raffia bow, and the set comes with twine and mini clothespins for hanging.
If you'd like to make your own here's the supplies and tools I used:
 Kraft Cardstock, Dictionary Page, Nouveau Letter Dies (Provo Craft), Distress Ink (Tim Holtz), 
Leaf Dies (Provo Craft), Raffia, Twine

Fall Blessings

Autumn is just around the corner so I decided to 
break out the oranges and browns and make a few fall cards.
To make these fun leaves I smeared stripes of 
orange and brown ink on a washable surface 
and spritzed with water.
I then laid a piece of white cardstock 
in the ink and soaked up the ink.
After the paper was dry, I dabbed my brown ink pad over it
 for a little more texture and then die cut my oak leaf. 
Supplies and Tools: Guidelines stamp set (Papertrey Ink), White - Brown Cardstock, Sentiment (Word Borders - Hero Arts), Oak Leaf Die (Provo Craft), Green, Brown, Orange Ink
