Pals Paper Arts Inspiration

This card was made for Pals Paper Arts inspiration challenge and also for the Crazy 4 Challenges sketch and Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge Colors of Fall.  I love these peppers.   I bought this stamp several years ago by Stamp in The Hand.  It's actually a string of peppers in a line but I stamped and cut them out individually to fit this design.  Used my basket again which is a stamp by Judith.  I use this basket for a lot of things. I think it's a keeper.  The verse was computer generated.   BG paper is from the Basic Grey set called Sultry.  Solid paper is More Mustard.  Spellbinders leaf and for kicks a button.  Enjoy.

Who wouldn't want a beautiful basket of leaves.  Stamped the backgorund with the small leaf stamp in Really Rust.  All the leaves are various stamps I have collected over time from Rubber Stampede and Stamps by Judith.  The basket is a Judith stamp.  I embossed the basket and cut a slit in the top to stuff the leaves into.  Computer generated the Happy Fall.  This is another entry for Stampin' Sisters in Christ.

Falling Leaves

This is an entry into the weekly challenge at Stampin Sisters in Christ . I ordered some DP by Basic Grey and I couldn't wait to use it. Here are the deets for this card:
DP is from the Indian Summer series called Maple Sugar.
The CS is Bazzil called Feather Boa.
Bis Shot for Spellbinders leaves and verse bg.
Verse stamp by ODB.
To make the leaves I started with a piece of white CS. I brayered Tim Holtz distresed ink Tea Dye over the paper. Then I used the pad of Aged Mahogany and Dried Marigold and just randomly swiped across the brayered page. It looks real splotchy but when you cut out the leaves with Spellbinders it comes out looking like a beautiful leaf. The cream colored leaf is just a piece of CS. I can't seem to get over the fall theme. It's my favorite time of year.

Pretty Amazing Sunday

This flower is from the Pretty Amazing set by SU. And since it's been a pretty amazing day I decided it fit my mood. I love the verse from ODB. They have the best stamps and verses. The paper is from My Minds Eye and I used Pumpkin Pie cs and ink. Just bought the leaves by Sizzix and I love this die. Wonder if that's one of the things I already have - hmmmm - better check that out. I don't know why the ribbon looks blueish because it is like celery green. Enjoy!
