Fall Inspiration

Hi all! I know it’s been a while since I have posted but as I’m driving through Columbus Ohio, I thought I would share some fall stamping inspiration with you!

I’m feeling very inspired as I look at all the fall colors, the Cajun Craze the More Mustard and the Old Olive colors are all around me!

We landed only an hour ago. Matt and I are here on a joint birthday week trip. I’m doing some genealogy research in Delaware County and Matt is going to see some old friends from Cleveland and then we will take in a Rush concert.

These are swaps that I received either at the founders Circle retreat in St. George, my demonstrator get together or maybe a few other swapsI participated in since September. Artist name is included on the photo.

I love this card by Karen. She used the woodgrain folder with the Core’dinations paper and sanded it a bit to give it that worn, weathered look. The bird stamp is called Tweet Leaves and it looks to me like she used markers directly to the stamp and then stamped it to get that wonderful, multicolored look. (You can find that stamp in the holiday catty)

In the sample, Lisa used the French Foliage stamp set with those wonderful fall colors.

Here is another perfectly preserved card made by Debi. This one has a fun fold to use as a gift card holder.

This fun packet holder could hold a cookie, some kind of a treat or even a gift card. I love the way that Mary tied on the side to keep it closed.

Connie used yummy summer starfruit as the base of the card with a fancy fan folder. I love the designer paper, comfort Café, with the fall colors in it.

Martha was so clever with this card! She use the stripes embossing folder, inked it with a raspberry or red ink. then ran it through the big shot. Inked it up again and ran it through the opposite direction to create a picnic table cloth.
Look how cute the fringe on the edge of the card is.

I love love love this card! So simple yet so elegant looking. Desiree used very vanilla card stock as the main color. She stamped three panels on very vanilla card stock while they were pushed together but then mounted them apart and added a little bit of champagne mist sponged very lightly across the panels. The colors Are lucky limeade, raspberry ripple, and more mustard.
