Happy Fall Y'all!

I don't know about you, but I love fall.  The crispness of the air, the smells of leaves and fireplaces burning and the pretty colors that go with it are all wonderful.  Growing up in Arizona, fall came when the temperatures hit 80 degrees.  Fall is quite different now that I live in Kansas.  :)

In September, Sweet Stamp Shop released a great fall themed stamp set called Fall Gratitude and I wanted to share a couple cards that I made with it. 

First up is this card:

I used stamping markers to color in different areas of this great feather stamp and created a scheme that I am in love with.  I added the simple sentiment, some seam binding and burlap twine and this simple card is now in my top 5 favorite cards.

Here is another card I have made with this set:

I stamped the circlular stamps on watercolor paper and then smeared them a bit with my water brush.  I used a coordinating ink refill to dye some seam binding, then tied it on with a piece of dark brown burlap twine.  I love this wood grain patterned paper from Basic Grey's Life of the Party collection.  This card reminds me of fall in the mountains of Colorado.  Nothing beats the gorgeous colors of the Aspen's when they are changing colors.

That is all for now!  I'll be back soon with more!

Until next time...
