I think the hot summer is over--temps are moderating and there's definitely a change in the air. Fall is on the way!! So I thought I'd make a Fall card with my new-to-me Celebrate Life set from Taylored Expressions. It's full of gorgeous Fall and Thanksgiving images and sentiments--just what I needed to welcome the seasonal change :)
I'm using TESC #127 for my layout and Basic Grey's new Pyrus paper. I stamped some of the foliage images on patterned paper first of all. I colored the leaf on the left with Copic markers and the one on the right with SU! markers. Then I matted them on Chocolate Chip card stock and stitched around them and the base card. I stamped the pumpkin with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers before cutting it out and popping it up on Pop Dots. The sentiment was stamped on more patterned paper and cut/embossed with a Spellbinders Tag Trio die, then tied on with some twine and a button. Before I put the card together, I sponged all edges with Antique Linen Distress ink to age it a little.
This card gives me a warm and cozy feeling. Yep, Fall is on the way :)
