A Trio of Fall Cards..

Oh.. did I have fun making fall cards this week!  I have three to show you...the first two I'll enter for this week's CAS-ual Friday's Challenge to make a card with paper piecing.  My first card is using a Verve set for the pumpkins and an unloved PTI set (it was hidden in the bottom of a drawer :)) for the sentiment.
This card has more paper piecing with the sweet little acorn...the stamps and sentiment are from PTI.  I had more fun with spritzing on this card!
And last but not least...can you tell I replaced my Sizzix...out came the embossing plates...I love all the texture with the embossed panel and the burlap!

In addition to making fall cards, my house has now moved over from summer to fall decorations.  My boys are thoroughly confused...wondering how long it is until halloween!

  1. Oh, I'll bet you have hoards of candy in your house on Halloween! For that reason alone, it was never my favorite holiday.

    Love all three cards, Lynn! That plaid acorn is adorable and love the burlap. . .perfect bit of texture for Fall!

  2. okay, those little pumpkins are too stinkin' cute!!! And I had to laugh that you 'lost' a stamp set!! What a great discovery :) You are a pro at spraying!! I may just need to head back there for some more 'tutorials.' AND to see the autumn version of your house!! Poor boys have a while yet before Halloween. I'm sure it doesn't help that all the stores have the candy out now too. Have a great day...ensuite installation should start today!!

  12. Aw... Lynn, you amaze me! I love all the paper-piecing of the first two cards! Each one of them is gorgeous! I think I like the 2nd one the best!! The elements are so balanced and the colors are unconventional for fall, but are so striking! Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!
