Colors of the Season

A couple different challenges called for Autumn colors so I went ahead and worked up a beautiful leafy design for them. I hope you enjoy the outcome.

I used white card stock and the randomly stamped the leaves on the front of it using a Kalaidicolor rainbow pad. Then with a checkered frame die I cut out the design and then put the frame aside as I wanted another color for my frame. So once again I die cut a frame with black card stock and this was the frame that I used for my focal panel. I added them to a Honey Mustard card base. I also took some of the negative little pieces from the frame and added them to the panel to create more interest.

And I just love that sentiment from IO as it is so true. Each day is a gift from God and I try to use it wisely.

Impression Obsession Supplies used:
Leaf Stem E8633
Mini Messages 3 CL653
Checkered Frames Die-DIE805-YY

Other Supplies:
Kalaidacolor Rainbow Pad-Autumn
Gina K. Designs Connect Glue
Gina K. Designs Card Stock
Crafter's Companion Glue Pen Runner

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Impression Obsession Challenge- Halloween or Fall Colors
Artsy Stamper Challenge-Challenge #1 Autumn Colors

We have a beautiful Fall day here and this morning they came out and got the tank valve corrected and we are once again able to have heat with the regular furnace. Makes it so much more convenient as you don't have to run in the night to add another chunk of wood to keep the fire going. Yay!

Take care everyone and enjoy your day. Thanks for the visit too.

God bless,

Hello Verna,

Thanks so much for entering our very first Artsystamper Challenge! I love Fall, and was born on Thanksgiving, so I am thoroughly enjoying all the lovely Autumn color projects. Hope to see you again in our next challenge!

A lovely design with those beautiful fall colors! The black frames it nicely, too. I'm glad your furnace is working again. We have a pellet stove which heats the whole house nicely, but it does require electricity for the auger and fan. Now that we have the motorhome, we'll use it for a back up if the power goes out. Just go out there and turn on the gas heater. Kind of handy!

This is so lovely with all the warm colors of Autumn captured in those leaves. Happy your heating issues have been resolved, but the wood burner is a great back-up device I'm sure!
