It's officially Fall and it's certainly in the air here in northeast Indiana! Temperatures fell 20 degrees in one day to celebrate the autumnal equinox! Thankfully, I love the cool, brisk weather and can't wait for the leaves to turn! Do you like Fall?
Today, I have a couple of swap cards to share that feature the autumn-themed Hello Harvest stamp set.

Bonnie O'Neill sent me this adorable fall card created with the Hello Harvest stamp set and Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper.
Background Basics—Bonnie started by embossing a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Basic Black cardstock with the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. She adhered a 3" x 4" piece of one of the cool backsides of the Rustic Harvest DSP to create a foundation for the focal point. The layers were adhered to a Sahara Sand card base.
Harvest Pumpkin—Bonnie stamped the Hello Harvest pumpkin in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Sahara Sand cardstock and die-cut it with the Rustic Pumpkin Dies. She sponged on some Sahara Sand ink around the edges and popped it up onto the card front with Dimensionals.
Autumn Floral—Next, Bonnie stamped the Hello Harvest floral image in Memento Black onto Basic White and colored it with Stampin' Blends Markers. She used Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake and Soft Succulent colors. The image was die cut with the Rustic Pumpkin Dies and popped up along the top of the pumpkin.
Finishing Touches—She stamped the Hello Harvest sentiment in Memento Black onto a 2-1/2" x 1" piece of Crushed Curry cardstock and tucked it under the pumpkin, popping it up with more Dimensionals. She finished by tying a bow with Black & White Gingham Ribbon and attaching it with a Glue Dot. So, so pretty!
Hello Harvest Blooming Pumpkin Card #2
This version was created by Connie Babbert and has some pretty layering.
Background Basics—Connie started by adhering a 4" x 2" piece of Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper to a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White. To be honest, I wasn't sure about the Gingham Cottage DSP when I first saw it, but I've seen some amazing autumn and Christmas projects using it as the backdrop to a cool focal point. I love how it looks here! The layers are mounted onto a Pumpkin Pie card base.
Pumpkin Focal Point—Connie created a foundation for her pumpkin with a Crumb Cake Deckled Rectangles die-cut popped up with Dimensionals. Next, she stamped the Hello Harvest pumpkin in Memento Black onto Pumpkin Pie and adhered it directly to the rectangle with SEAL Adhesive.
The floral image was stamped in Memento Black ink onto Basic White and colored with Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive Stampin' Blends Markers. It's die cut and popped up with Dimensionals over the pumpkin.
Finishing Touches—Connie stamped the same Hello greeting in Old Olive ink onto a 2-1/4" x 5/8" piece of Basic White, trimming the end at an angle before adhering it with SEAL. She finished by adding a couple of Pale Papaya Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems. Oooh, I'm loving those jewels! The perfect touch!
