I Heart Fall!!

Hi Everyone!! I have to admit that Fall is one of my favorite times of the year! I love when the weather starts to get crisp and the leaves on the trees start to change colors. Even though we didn't have very much of a Fall this year, my hubby and I were still able to enjoy some of our Fall Traditions.  One of the things we love doing is going to Avila Valley Barn in San Luis Obispo to buy apple crisp, apple cider and pumpkins to decorate our front porch!
For my shaker card, I cut the pumpkin shapes out of American Crafts Pumpkin Patch Design Paper using my Silhouette - 3 Thanksgiving Icons, #33067. I used Judikins Embossable Window Acetate to cover the opening of the pumpkin. The cute little fox along with the other images are from Lawn Fawn Into The Woods Stamp Set. I colored them with Copic Markers. 
Thank you for stopping by today!! Have a wonderful Fall day!!
Big Hugs,

Fall Is In The Air!!

Hi Everyone! Sorry I have been away for so long! It was such a hot Summer here in California! One of the hottest ones that I can remember!! Without central air, it was unbearable on some days. Needless to say, I didn't get very much crafting done. In the last couple of weeks, it has started to cool down, especially in the evenings. It is so nice!! Fall is finally here!

I would like to share a Fall card that I created using Lawn Fawn Happy Harvest Stamp and matching Die Set. I colored in all the images that I used with Copic Markers. I created the watercolor paper background using orange and yellow Liquid Acrylic Paints and Gold Pearl Ex Powder that I have had in my stash for years. You can find a wonderful tutorial on how to do this technique on Youtube from creativeyoungmama.  After the piece dried, I cut it out using Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Stackables Die. The orange gingham paper is from Lori Whitlock's Fall Fling Digital Paper Collection. For the final touch, I added a little bit of twine to the edge.

Thank you for stopping by today!! Happy Fall To You All!!

Big Hugs,
