Indian Summer/Hero Arts ~Generations Crafting~

Indian Summer

I have seen this card style before but this is my first time making it! I recently got my very first set of Nesties and had a great time layering these.

The beautiful and rich papers are on clearance at Generations Crafting, Indian Summer by Basic Grey.

The sweet flower is a Hero Art Cling. Check out the sweet variety they have to offer!

I also used the Indian Summer papers to decorate my Fall village on top of my mantle. The little village was a gift from my Mom! Isn't it fun!

Here is a close up of the banners and leaves I punched and dropped around some of the buildings. Pretty sweet! I also like this because its a great way to use up scraps and its something I can change every year!

Want some cheap paper? Stuff you can't get at the local craft stores? Check out the sale section at'll be pretty excited to see the deals there!!!

Great card! Love the fall colors. And that village is so stinkin' cute! The little banners and leaves give a nice finishing touch. Doesn't feel like fall yet when it's going to be in the high 90's-100 degrees outside. yuck!
