Those of you who know me know I LOVE Fall!  So it won't come as to big of surprise to my friends and followers that I chose to use the Grateful Heart Collection for my projects today!  Here are the cards I made with this amazing collection:

Don't you just love these beautiful colors?  I fell in love with this collection the minute I saw it!  These papers are very versatile, in all honesty you could use all but TWO of the papers for any season!  Here is a close up of the papers included in the Grateful Heart collection:
 I also used the Grateful Heart complements on my cards.  You get 2 sets of very thin chipboard and 2 sheets of stickers!  The butterfly on my first card and the flower on my second card are stickers. 
 Next up is the fun little tag I used on my first card.  I used our Fancy Tags Thin cuts to make it. This is one of the most versatile set of dies I have purchased in a long time! This set of tags has faux stitching around the edges and the shapes are so unique and gorgeous! I have found myself using them over and over again on all sorts of projects!  I love the look of the tags.  In case you are hesitant about the holes as I was, notice I covered up the hole on the tag used in the first card with my butterfly!  It's easy to do but of course you can also add ribbon, an enamel dot, a button or a brad to the hole as well! 
For my first card I used a fun stamp set called Bunches of Love . I used two of the words for my sentiment.  I LOVE these sentiments! I have cut them out and adhered them to my tag.  Plus this beautiful flower is another must have, you will use it for any type of occasion card and even scrapbook embellishments! 

And last but of course not least I also used the Boutique card making stamp set on my second card for the sentiment: CHOOSE JOY.  This set is so pretty, I love all 3 of the beautiful sentiments! And to finish off both cards with a little sparkle I added a gold glitter dot! 

Now “hop” on over to Amy’s blog to see her fabulous artwork. Be sure to visit all the Consultants in the hop to get some fun creative ideas. If you get lost along the way, here is a list of participants. Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!


  1. You always make the best cards!! These are so pretty. Also I must yell at you. I just talked myself out of needing those tag true cuts and now I am second guessing myself! I think I am going to need to add them back to my list ASAP.

    1. Ha! I am SO glad I got them, I am loving them!! I was a little wary of them at first thinking I never use tags that much but there are so many possibilities with these, you will love them when you get them!

  2. Both of these cards are terrific! I may need to CASE these layouts - I struggle with layers :)

  3. Your second card is my favorite. Blue is my favorite color! Very nice designs!
