Welcome Autumn!

Are you getting excited for Fall?! I know I am! The changing of this season is my very favorite time of year! :)

For the Cornish Heritage Farms stamp swap I was lucky to get to play with this adorable Kim Hughes stamp set called "Autumn Trees". I love this set and can imagine myself using it in many, many ways! :)

Welcome Autumn Card - For my first project, I couldn't resist creating a happy, Fall scene on the front of my card.

I stamped all my images on cream cardstock using Timber Brown Staz On ink and then used Shimmerz paints to color them in. For the tree, I used Choc-o-lot Shimmerz on the trunk, and both Sunny and Sunflower Shimmerz on the leaves. The scarecrow is painted with Choc-o-lot, Green Olive, Sunflower, Marigold, and Fire Engine Red Shimmerz. The leaves on the ground are Sunflower. The pumpkins are Green Olive and Marigold Shimmerz. The lines of the pumpkin are shaded with Spiced Cider Blingz. I then stamped the sentiment on a small piece of canvas and used lots of stitching for a homespun, Autumn feel. :)

Welcome Card - I just had to use that cute crow image for a "Welcome" card. He just has a friendly, home-y feeling about him! :)

Again, I used Timber Brown Staz On ink to stamp my images. I painted the leaves using Sunflower and Fire Engine Red Shimmerz, and Spiced Cider Blingz. The crow is filled in with Coffee Shimmerz.

A big THANK YOU to Cornish Heritage Farms for swapping with us! I can't wait to see what the other team members have in store for us this week!

Thanks for coming by!
