What a fabulous fall we have had thus far ~ summer weather in October! It is beautiful outside and finding time to stamp is at a premium ~ I love being outside when it's fabulous out ~ but I did take the time to enter my studio in the evenings, so needless to say, this took a couple of evenings to put together and then shot these pictures outside ~ I don't know about you, but stamping is therapy for me ~ I hope you enjoy what I created, I'm super pleased with this card!
The gals at SUO Challenge 29 are calling for leaves and then I found a fabulous color challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments #87 . Sure hope you pop in on these two wonderful challenge blogs and play along!
I love my new Simply Scored tool and so took advantage of my little markers and scored away. This is just a standard 8 1/2 x 4 1/4 CS, scored at 2 1/8 & 6 7/16...mark your spot and you're good to go....easy peasy!!!! Love it!!!
I colored my wheelbarrow and veggies using my Blender Pen and also Spritz on my CS to add some color to it all...and I never owned a Spritzer until last week because......hmmm good question! Love it!
Above it a shot of the first fold completed and here is the second fold ~ for my second fold I actually stamped the pumpkins from Scene In A Garden, colored & fussy cut them out...using Dimensionals, just popped these pumpkins right under the tree where I wanted them! And a little Spritzing around my tree from Branch Out. I masked all around the tree so my spritzing happened where I wanted it! I used Dimensionals on my sentiment and made sure when the card was closed that it was just tucked under my front image! Scroll up to have another peek at that!
And of course all the sponging here and there...can't seem to put that baby down!
A peek of the inside and then another full view, just a tad opened for a better look!
Thank you SO much for stopping by today ~ I hope you enjoyed your visit and maybe I inspired you just a bit! Enjoy your day and, I know, I'm a few days early...just incase I don't get back!
have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!
Happy Thanksgiving Canada!
