Happy Fall...

Happy Wednesday!!! :D So glad the weekend is almost here. I know I say that all the time but I really look forward to the weekends!!! :D Well last night I was able to get a few things done stamping wise! I made two cards, but I will show you the other tomorrow! :D I really, really like how this card came out. I'm really not into fall colors but I really like these colors together!!! :D I used a stamp set that I've had for a months and it hadn't seen ink yet. I used the Growing in Unity set from Unity Stamps. I love this tree and it's the main reason why I bought this set, so I was super glad I got to ink it up!

Stamps: Growing in Unity (Unity Stamps), Say It In Style & Sans Alpha (CTMH) Paper: Enchanted DP & Barn Red TCS, Pansy Purple TCS & White Daisy CS (CTMH) Ink: Autumn Terracotta & Olive (CTMH) Accents: Pewter Spiral Clip, Pewter Brads & Olive Grosgrain Ribbon (CTMH), Kaiser Pearls & Pop Dots

My base is a 5" x 10 1/2" piece of Barn Red TCS. I know, weird card size, but when I was cutting my dp I forgot to move the base and I cut into it, so I had to trim it. Anywho, I used a piece of Enchanted dp that I've had for over a year and this is the first time I've used it...I know shame, shame, shame! LOL!!! :D Next I worked on my image. I love the tree in this set, it looks so whimsical to me!!! So I inked it up with Autumn Terracotta Ink and stamped it onto a piece of White Daisy CS. I then layered my tree onto a piece of Pansy Purple TCS and lightly distressed the edges with my scissors. Next I found these Kaiser pearls that I've been hoarding and thought they would look perfect on the tree and IMHO I think they do! :D Next I added a pewter spiral clip to the top left corner with some Olive Grosgrain Ribbon attached to it. For my sentiment I used a couple of stamp sets to make it work. I stamped Happy Fall in Olive ink and added some pewter brads to each end. I then pop dotted the image to my base and called it done!!! :D

Wow, I was pretty long winded today! If you're still with me, Thank You! :D I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping! Come back and visit me tomorrow for something prettie! :D

Have a Fabulous Day!!! :D
