Autumn Inspired




I was so inpired by a recent Shoebox Swap project that I wanted to try it myself - it had a gorgeous moon. So I tried the technique for myself using these Inkadinkado tree stamps. I stamped the image on either yellow or white paper, then punched a circle template for the moon and proceeded to cover the sky with different shades ink. I made the Halloween card first, then added the rest of the seasons - spring was kinda tough.... but i love the rest!
I made another card with the tree image inspired by the paper from the new Basic Grey Recess line. I love the Blue Bayou colored sky.
The third photo is an attempt at scrapping. My friend Arin (Arinstamps on SCS) was visiting last weekend, so I decided to give scrapping a try. This is about my 4th page ever.... but I'm pretty happy with it. Happy enough to run out and buy a new album to put it in!!!
Which project is your favorite??

I love the blue sky. I wonder if I could do this with "Lovely as a Tree" as that is the only tree I have? Anyone would be so happy to receive any of these. thanks for sharing.

All of the projects are gorgeous. Since I'm not much of a scrapbooker, I tend to admire cards more than pages; but your "maybe 4th" page inspires me to try it sometime. But, in the end, I really love your four seasons cards.

Thanks for the inspiration, My son is turning 21 on sat. and has just returned from serving 15 months in Bagdad, he loves fall, and the woods, so I adapted a card using the su trees stamp and used some fall colored embossing powders,and put Happy 21 on the front of the card. I'm sure he'll love it. Your cards are inspirational to me, love your colors.
