Stamp Off Autumn Flourishing Phrases

Happy Friday!  Susan, Buffy and I are ready for you,
with another Stamp Off Challenge.

Today, we are featuring an Autumn theme.  It's pretty
warm here in Dayton, but fall is on its way!

 I continue to find so many uses for Flourishing Phrases,
on page 49.  In this example, the leaf stamp enabled a
scattering of fall colors.  I added Gold and Garden Green strands from the Baker's Twine Trio pack on page 16 of
the Holiday Catalog.   The sentiment was created with the 
photopolymer Labeler Alphabet on page 156.   
I love this double alphabet set,
because I can create any sentiment required 
by a given situation.  In this case, I wanted something going
in a vertical direction, which was easily accomplished.

Now please click on over to check out the beautiful
samples offered by Buffy and Susan.
Their fall projects will dazzle!

Cookie Cutter Scare Crow

As you will see in the coming weeks, I created a number
of cards using this card sketch.  Last week's Stamp Off challenge
kind of started things off.  Sometimes, when something
works for you, you stick with it.  Part of the reason I used
this sketch is that I love the feel of the Cable Knit Dynamic
Textured Impressions Embossing folder (p 13).
It just works, for fall or winter cards, because it exudes warmth.
The sentiment comes from a retired set. 

The scare crow comes from the Cookie Cutter Halloween
set on page 53.  He's cute and quick to color.  Having the
Cookie Cutter Builder Punch on page 6 means that you don't
have to do any nasty fussy cutting!
