It’s the First Day of Fall

Well, here it is — the first day of Fall — and the weatherman says it will get up to 97 degrees here today.  Oh, well.  It will start to feel like Fall before too long.

Nonetheless, I was inspired to make a Fall card today.  I was inspired by the challenge over at CAS-usual Fridays , which is to create a clean and simple project inspired by Autumn and by the challenge over at the Friday Mashup.

So I pulled out a beautiful stamp set that I haven’t used since last Fall, French Foliage, and got busy.  The leaves in this set are gorgeous, and just beg to be used with different techniques.  I took a sponge dauber and applied different colors to each stamp. 

This was a fun card to make.  Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  French Foliage, Tiny Tags
Ink:  Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, More Mustard, Raspberry Ripple, Crumb Cake
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Early Espresso
Embellishments:  sponge daubers, Houndstooth Embossing Folder, Jewelry Tag punch, Early Espresso Baker’s Twine, 5/8″ Crochet Trim, Color Spritzer Tool

  1. I love it Amy! The contrast of the white and the fall colors is visually stunning, and I love the use of the houndstooth EF. And it’s perfect that you used the baker’s twine, because any other ribbon would overpower the main element, the beautiful leaves.

  2. That’s such a great stamp set and lovely to see all the stamps being used on the same project too :0) Fabulous colours on the leaves..they look so realistic :0)
    Thanks for joining in the fun at CASual Fridays this week :0)
