Celebrate Fall!

Whew, so many birthdays coming up the next few months! Decided to try the sketch challenge over at Pal Paper Arts to create this fallish birthday card. Here is the sketch:
PPA143
I've used the Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper, Perfectly Preserved stamp set and the Cannery Set Framelits to create this celebrate card! For the jar I cut out 2 of the jar - one from the Very Vanilla card stock and another from a window sheet. I put the 2 apples between the Very Vanilla and Window sheet pieces to make it look like the apples were canned!

Are you loving the fall cooler weather? This is my favourite time of year. I'm looking forward to seeing the leaves change colour. I've been over on Pinterest checking out some ideas for decorating the house for Thanksgiving and Halloween. Have you checked out my boards yet? You can do that here: http://pinterest.com/FromWhereIStamp/

Supplies
Stamps: Perfectly Preserved, Seasonal Sayings
Ink: Black Stazon, Raspberry Ripple, Lucky Limeade, Sahara Sand, Early Espresso
Paper: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper, Window sheet
Accessories: Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Big Shot, Cannery Set Framelits

By The Seashore

Another chilly morning! And this card reminds me of the warmth of summer! I used water colour paper to add some texture and a piece of baker's twine to tie it all together. The Antique Brad could be another shell! The colours are inspired by the Fab Friday Challenge:

Birthday Banners!

Went looking for challenges today and came across one at the Paper Players - to create a clean and simple project featuring banners. What great inspiration!
The Daffodil Delight Designer Series Paper was crumbled up and spritzed lightly with water, I also ripped a few tears along the edges. Then I used a bone folder to mostly flatten the designer paper. For the banner a piece of Whisper White Baker`s Twine was threaded through the punched pennants and then arranged on the card.

Supplies
Stamps: Pennant Parade, Curly Cute
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point, Rich Razzelberry, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Brights Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Rhinestones, Petite Pennants Punch, Square Punch, Whisper White Baker's Twine
