Hello!! Yes... fall is officially here and with our weather being so lovely making fall inspired cards is not hard to do!! As some of you might know my sweet friend Lisa and I have been doing a little personal challenge involving CASology. I didn't participate last week because I just couldn't come up with a good idea for their cue word, but this week was totally different. When I saw the cue word I immediately hit upon an idea and thankfully it worked!! I don't know about you, but I have had a ton of "great" ideas that do not turn out great, lol!! I will be posting this to ColourQ as I used that color palette (it is very fall inspired) and since I used Simon Says Stamp products for my card I will be adding it to this to the SSS flickr challenge. As my starting point I die cut a frame from Ruby Red cardstock using two Spellbinders plain square dies. I then stamped the leaves from the SSS set Apple of My Pie using the Hello Honey and Pumpkin Pie inks. The outline leaf was stamped using Hero Arts Latte ink. The glasses from the SSS set I See You were also stamped in the Latte ink and then die cut with the matching die. The sentiment (also from I See You) was stamped in the lens. I die cut the panel with the leaves stamped on it and then added the frame and the glasses. I finished up by adding the sentiment "fall" (from a Hero Arts set) using Ruby Red ink. So... I have some "frames" (glasses) within a frame!
Hope you have a wonderful... please let me know what you think and make sure that you head over to Lisa's blog for a look at her project... I know it is super clever!
