Bring on the Fall Weather (Pleazzeee!)

Well it's Friday and think we're all ready for a cooler weekend... but no luck... weather reports tells us otherwise... gosh I'm sooo ready for FALL... maybe if I show you some Fall cards it might work... or at least feel cooler... see if this works... great samples form Pretty Paper Cards...

Blackberry Bliss combines great with ANY color green.....

The leaf on this card is made from Mossy Meadow card stock and then crumpled up into a tiny ball.  Uncrumple it and curl the edges a bit with a bone folder and there you go, a pretty leaf!  You can also sponge the edges with a little Pear Pizzaz ink to just add a bit more depth.  Don't forget the doily too!

This card is very versatile. You could use it for…a thank you card, an encouragement card, a card to a friend, a Thanksgiving card, etc. I’m not sure what I’ll use it for yet, but you can be sure it will go to someone special!

Give thanks for all things! I love this stamp because it’s true. This is something I continually try to do ~~ thank God for everything. It’s made a big impact in my life. I have to admit I don’t always remember to do it, even though I try, but when I do it puts my life in perspective.

When you're in a shabby chic mood just whip out the Stampin’ Distress Tool which roughs up the edges of the card stock.  Then use the scallop die-cut burlap and Venetian Crochet Trim, along with Linen Thread and embossed scallop-cut vellum... if that isn't shabby chic I don't know what is!

They are absolutely beautiful colors and will inspire you to start thinking about Fall, even though here in San Diego it’s in the 90′s!!! Crushed Curry, Always Artichoke and Cajun Craze

These are made from vellum and cut with the Autumn Accents Big Z Die.  Just fold the leaves in half and then score them with a Bone Folder to create the lines.  Color them with Stampin’ Write Markers and rub them with Sponge Daubers to blend the ink and get a realistic shading.

That all puts me in the mood to go
rake some leaves up.. only if I had some!
Happy Weekend Everyone!
