An Assortment


of projects today to show you!  I received these "falling leaves" sentiment RAKs from Caryl and thought now, being the first day of fall, would be a good time to use them!


I actually made three of these! This is very loosely based on the CAS sketch at SCS for Monday; cardstock base is Dusty Durango and DP is Basic Grey's Recess.  The leaves were made by inking the leaf from Best Wishes & More in a lighter color of your choice (these are More Mustard and Cameo Coral), then daubering the edges of the stamp itself with a darker color (Really Rust & Ruby Red).  Huff, then stamp.  Cut out the leaf, fold it in half along the center and run it through a crimper at an angle.  That's what makes the fun texture!  Here's the inside, using a sentiment from CHF's Scripture Essentials 1, also stamped on Recess:


Changing gears a bit, here is the swap that I made for my downline meeting:


This uses a Taken with Teal card base and the ornaments from Tree Trimmings stamped in Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry and Versamark embossed with Gold Glory EP.  The larger ornament is cut out & popped up, and "tied" with gold cord.  Sentiment is from Many Merry Messages.  And here is a little notebook I made as a gift for our guest at our meeting:


It is covered with Night & Day DP which was sponged a little with Melon Mambo; the images from Define Your Life, DYL Alphabet and Pocket Silhouettes are stamped in Melon Mambo and Stazon Black.  Accent was a Jumbo Grommet and MM Polka Dot ribbon flipped to the plain side.  I also stamped some swirls from Baroque Motifs on the DP.    I think she liked it!

Thanks for visiting today, and be sure to check back tomorrow for the Diva Challenge.  See you then!
