Welcome September!

Monday, September 5, 2016

 Before we know it, the weather will start getting cooler (although we're expecting high 80's this week!).  It's already starting to get darker earlier and the leaves are getting ready to change color.  Yep, fall season is around the corner!

My card was created with products from STAMPlorations.  I began with a wood grain stencil and sponged dark and light brown inks.  The leaves are from the Trendy Leaves set and I added a "shadow" using a medium brown ink on the sold stamps.  The sentiment is from one of my favorite sentiment sets, Fond Expressions 2.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:




  1. Such a pretty fall inspired card!

  2. The leaves and background play off each other really well. It feels like the leaves have movement.

    So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas.

  3. This is a very creative project and I love your construction and organization. Such a clear design POV as well! Thanks for Rocking with us this week at 613 Avenue Create!

  4. Such a lovely autumn colour palette, Kathy ... and a fabulous sense of movement in those tumbling leaves! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Anita :)

  5. This is a cleverly constructed card. I love the background and dimension created by the leaves.
    Glad you dropped it onto the front porch at 613 Avenue Create.
