Fall Is In The Air...

Hey Friends and Happy Friday to all of you. First off,  I just have to say, I am so glad to be back with Sweet Stamp Shop and excited about my new role as the Design Team Coordinator. I hope I make all my new (design team) friends proud!

Well, I questioned myself as I was typing the title name of this post, as the temperatures are supposed to be close to the 100's or so!(...eeeekkkkk this is NOT the September weather I have ordered!!!! :) Can't wait for something cooler, because it sure is messing with my creativity!!! Do you guys find it hard to craft when it is hot???

 So to help me channel into that fall season I decided to make some fun cards with lots of depth, texture, and color. Fall is one of my most favorite seasons, it is about neck and neck with spring. I LOVE the smells, the colors, the feel, the food, the layers of clothes, lol everything. It just makes me feel warm and cozy and happy.

So here is my fall inspired card:
On my first card I really wanted to convey the depth and layers of fall. I wanted to go with browns, greens, and yellow-y/oranges to capture that "look".  Then I broke out my Calendar stamp set to create a base on vellum, added a couple Maya Road owls, and then using the Fall Gratitude stamp set I stamped and cut out two trees on patterned paper.
I Glued one tree flat down and popped the second one up on foam squares. Then, I stamped and trimed around "Give Thanks"and using more foam squares adhere down. I finished off with some bling and ribbon.

How do you like those layers??? Fun huh? 

I loved how this card came out, I feel that I was able to translate my vision of fall into a card. What do you think? Do I have any fellow fall lovers out there? Leave me a comment below I would love to hear. :)

Here is my Bonus card for you.

I found this picture on pinterest HERE and it really spoke to me (plus I WANT the hose spigots too they are soo cute and fun!!)

I loved the pattern and simplicity of these. Not to mention color scheme was GREAT.
Here is what I did:

How do yo like the CAS card??? I just love all the colors that are in this card and the touch of glitter. To add a little dimension I pop dotted the blue square and created a pennant banner that popped up just a bit. :)

Here are the sets I used and don't forget to stop by the Sweet Stamp Shop to pick yours up and help me channel in some cooler weather!!!!
