Fall Colors

Happy Midweek Stampers ~ What are your favorite Fall Colors?

Well I got quite a few cards made yesterday.  I had to make the cards for my September workshop.  I managed to get 3 of them completed along with a few other things I had to do.  I had 2 ladies for my Bags & Tags class last night also.  This month is finished and I will start on next month.  With my upcoming trips I have to be prepared for all my commitments and classes.  After I get October straight I have to work on November as I am headed to North Carolina and the beach the first 2 weeks.  Busy, busy, busy!

We are continuing with our Coloring Down the Lines Fall Colors blog hop again this week.  Here is the Fall pictures for our inspiration.

I was inspired by the trees in this picture.  I decided to use my Sheltering Tree stamp set as it had not seen any love in quite a while.  I stamped the tree first.  I then took the leaf stamp and inked it up with Daffodil Delight.  I then used Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze ink pads and a sponge dauber to add some other colors.  After I had it inked up I stamped it on top of my tree.  I mounted this piece on a layer of Pumpkin Pie and then a layer of Early Espresso.  I took my Whisper White card base and embossed it with the Woodland embossing folder.  I attached the tree panel using dimensionals.  I took some Tombow Multipurpose liquid glue and used it to attach my ribbon to my card base.  I stamped the sentiment from Vertical Greetings using Early Espresso.  I used my hand banner punch (which was on the clearance rack if any of you want to get it) and flagged the ends of my sentiment.  I sponged the edges with the Espresso ink and used dimensionals to add it to my strip of ribbon.  Here is my finished creation.
