Can it be August already? We are thinking of Crisp Fall days and children still in the novelty of new classrooms, new teachers and homework is fun. Dream on right? Actually, we are still lingering in summer vacation mode but at SNSS we are ready to show you what Fall has in store for your card creations! All stamps released will be available for your immediate purchase over at Sweet'nSassy store.
If you came from Cathy McCauley's blog (pssst, isn't she amazingly talented??) you are on the right track.
|stamps: Tree Background, Autumn Collage|
My first card showcases the Tree Background! Can we say LOVE?? I do. I embossed it in black and added fall colours using a sponge until I achieved the look I wanted. I couldn't wait to cut out this "new for me" fence die to place kind of meandering in front of the tree. Then, I cut out the quote using one of the decorative dies. Love it.

For this card, I embossed directly on Kraft CS in white and coloured in the image using Gamsol and coloured pencils. The soft colours are perfect for this image. I cut out the second embossed panel and cut it down to fit the first and matched it to the design. I made the card a little smaller to make room for the circle top which includes a quote. And now, onto some details...
