Autumn Greetings from Stamp Candy!  Autumn (or Fall, as we call it here) is in the air and with it comes Halloween with its black cats and pumpkins and spooky lanterns.  I made today’s card with the Spooky Cat Bundle, the Seasonal Lantern Bundle, and the Spooky Night and Painted Autumn Designer Series Papers (DSP.) And I used the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits Dies to cut the pumpkins from the Spooky Night DSP. I love how there is so much crossover between products in the 2017! 


Here’s what I made:
