Fall is in the air! 

This month's projects are all 'taking in' those beautiful autumn colors! 

Project #1 is the Waterfall Card. 

You've all seen it and loved it.  'We have got to do THAT card.'  I saw a card made using this stamp set in the traditional autumn colors.  I wanted to try it in autumn + fresh/crisp colors.  I used the color wheel and LOVE this color combo!  It is much easier than you might think.  This card is very impressive.  It works great for a b-day or party invite.  You can have party details on each flap.  I've made this card in spring colors with little flower on each panel, or for Halloween and spookie faces on each panel.

Project #2 is an elegant Christams project.  I love the dove (okay, even more now that he's all glittery and blinging)…  While working on this project, I colored the background flower many different colors.  Tony insisted on the traditional red/green… you know, the bright red/green.  I kept asking, what about artichoke or olive… 'nope, GREEN'.  So, when we make this project, you'll have quite a few colors to choose from for your background.  After all that playing around (yep, plenty of samples to share for color choice), I've decided I like the plain 'ole white on white… no color.  The sample below is bashful blue. The textured background is using an embossing folder (and Big Shot) from the mini catalog.  WOW, those embossing folders sure do texture your paper in a big way!  The super smooth SU paper becomes a big delicate after texturing it.  The oval/scallop frame is cut on the Big Shot with a die.  After the oval is cut, I used a hand hole punch for the holes. 

This project would be good for mass production!  I can't wait for you to do this one!

Project #3 – as voted on by YOU!  The pheasant card. 

Last month we used this stamp set, Autumn Days for a very simple elegant card.  This card again, is very simple.  The twill ribbon… Okay, I've had this ribbon for a long time in my ribbon drawer.  I've used the small and medium regularly, but have had a hard time finding a project to use this big stuff on…  Wha, Laa!  It's perfect here.  We'll also be using Build-a-Brad (always lots of fun).
