Acorns, Fall, and Stamping Fun!

Fall is probably my favorite time of year.  The colors of fall just make me happy!  At the last gathering with my Hillsboro group we made some fall cards using some of my favorite techniques and here they are:

Isn't this acorn just the cutest?  I can't wait to play with it more this weekend.  The "Into the Woods" designer paper is the perfect foil for this set--Acorny Thank You---and you can bundle it too! The technique we used here was faux suede --it's hard to see, but the texture of suede is on the daffodil circle. 

France Martin designed a card a few years ago using this sponging technique and I still think it makes a striking fall card.  I used the Vintage Leaf set for the leaves and LightHearted Leaves for the sentiment.  I have 2 containers of these cute wooden embellishments left over from last year and really need to get them used! 

Our last project was this little cutie--a mint for after dinner.  I think this would be a cute little thing to put at each person's plate when they join you for a fall feast!

and you can crank out a bunch of these very easily!

Have fun stamping!  Dawn
