Gearing up....
It's a GOOD Day.....

Fall has arrived

I don't know about you, but I absolutely love this time of year!  The leaves are turning, there is a slight chill in the air, and it is just beautiful outside. 

Driving around today, I was inspired to pull out the Gently Falling stamp set and Spice Cake Designer Series Paper.  I originally thought that these colors were an unusual color combination for Fall projects, but it is perfect---the blue actually matches the clear skies we've had this week.

I decided to use the Mojo 209 Sketch as my starting point.  It's been awhile since I've been able to participate in a challenge and I always love the Mojo Monday sketches.  They really stretch my creativity!

STAMP SETS:  Gently Falling, Thank You Kindly

INK:  Soft Suede

PAPER:  Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Pool Party, More Mustard, Spice Cake Designer Series paper

ACCESSORIES:  Soft Suede 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Antique Brads, Big Shot, Finial Press Embossing Folder, Designer Frame Embossing Folder, Eyelet Border punch, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, Sponges, Dimensionals



For the greeting, I stamped "thanks" in the center of the embossed Designer Frame.  The edges of the frame were sponged with Soft Suede ink and Champagne Mist shimmer paint.


Aren't the leaves gorgeous?  I stamped the images onto More Mustard, Pool Party, and Soft Suede cardstock with Soft Suede ink.  Each leaf was carefully cut out, then sprayed with a mixture of Champagne Mist shimmer paint and alcohol.  I keep the shimmer paint mixture in a small mister bottle--it is wonderful for adding a soft shimmer to your special projects.  I need to remember to keep some on hand for the holidays!
