First of Autumn

Here in the states it's the first day of Autumn, marking the Fall weather, and the beginning of cooler temps....and brings us lots of warmer and soothing colors like auburns, mustards, oranges, forest greens, and teals.  This is one of my favorite 'leaf' stamps from Hero Arts called the Leaf Flourish:

Fall Blessings

I've used this leaf stamp in several ways, coloring/blending with markers, and my favorite is embossing with white embossing powder then blending my distress inks like these older cards below: 

Celebrate Leaf Flourish

happy Thanksgiving leaf flourish
Wonder how else I could play with this stamp?  Is it cooler where you are?  We are still drenched in heat, but we should be seeing the Fall weather around October.

See you!

Gorgeous blending! So seamless. It's sort of cooler here but anything less than 90 is a welcome break. I wish it were always in the 70's but with Fall and Spring so I'm really truly happy about 2 months out the year, LOL :)

You could paper piece or make your own background paper too!
