fall is almost here

Pin It


It's august and raining. normally I would be bummed because it should be sunny, but after a couple hot weekends, I'm welcoming the rain. anyways, rain and cold also means it's time for my favorite part of the year...college football!!! 5 more days till oregon duck football...YAY!!!

since I'm feeling the fall season, I've started my fall cards and thinking about halloween. for my august a muse bumper card, I decided to use fall colors and my new martha stewart crooked fence punch. I added a touch of glitter to the leaves and a bit of red for fall flavor. I used barely banana for shadowing -- my new favorite shadow color!

I ended up buying most of the new martha stewart edge punches. they were all so adorable...who could resist drippy goo!?

paper - chocolate chip, a muse orange crush, madeira brown, shimmer white; stamps - a muse leafy tree, mini oval bl; a muse sentiment; ink - memento rich cocoa, old olive; accessories - french roast grosgrain stitched, ms halloween fence

Chichiboulie Swap

Pin It


I love the chichiboulie stamps and found a great reason to ink one up...a SCS swap!

I used 'belinda bumberboots' 'cause she reminds me of my favorite a muse stamp 'seattle girl'. I wanted something fun and bright, so I broke out su's bold brights and fresh print kiwi series designer paper. I also used the dp to paper piece the umbrella and crystal effects to slick up the umbrella and raindrops. For the final touch, I added a petaloo flower with a basic grey glazed brad.

I can't wait to see what other cutie chichiboulies I get in the mail!

paper - green galore, orchid opulence, barely banana, going gray, shimmer white, fresh print kiwi series dp; stamps - belinda bumberboots by stamping bella; ink - memento london fog; accessories - copics, su barely banana, bloom dots embossing folder, petaloo flowers, bg glazed brad, crystal effects
