Here Comes the Fall!

We are suddenly having cooler days and nights here in New England and it reminds me that fall is just around the corner!  So I thought I'd share some cards I've recently made for various challenges over on Split Coast.

The stamps I used on all four are from the August Release by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

I used the rock and roll inking technique on this CAS no layer card.  The leaves are from Season of Change and the wonderful sentiment is from Let Go Let God.

My second card uses the leaf stamp from Season of Change.  I stamped it in 4 different greens, cut them out and adhered them with foam tape over the patterned paper.

Here's another CAS design card where I stamped the leaf from Season of Change in 3 colors and scored the frame with my Scor Pal.  The sentiment is from Autumn Bounty.

For my Thanksgiving card, I colored this lovely pot of fall foliage from Autumn Bounty with Copics and added some touches of yellow sparkles to the flower centers for some shimmer!

Ooooh! Love the way you've used these images for some terrific Fall goodness, Julia! One-layer cards are not something on my "comfy-to-do" list ... wish I could get over that! lol

Looks like I might need to check out Korin's sale, too!

Happy Labor Day Weekend!
