I am having a really hard time getting into the fall spirit when it’s over 90 degrees out today. It’s going to be warmer then it was on Tuesday. Fall is my favorite season so I’m not going to be happy if we go straight from summer into winter. I like being able to wear jeans and long sleeved T-shirts and be comfortable outside. Today I have capris and a short sleeved T-shirt on.
Today I pulled out nice rich fall colors and even used Purple with my Elegant Eggplant card stock. This is a color I do not use very frequently. I love it when it all comes together, but I normally have a hard time making purple work. I have a few sheets left over from the Autumn Traditions dsp from last year. I matted two of the patterns on More Mustard card stock and sewed around it with Chocolate thread. I then made my main image out of Chocolate Chip and Whisper White. I stamped the tree from Season of Friendship in Soft Suede and then used the 1 1/4″ circle punch to make leaves out of Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie and More Mustard. I added texture to them with the Lattice Embossing Folder. The sentiment is a Modern Label punch sponged with Elegant Eggplant ink and stamped with the Because I Care sentiment. It is attached with dimensionals.
Here is to hoping Fall arrives before Winter does. I’m going to try to put up a few of my fall decorations to see if that helps too.
