Fall Trio

I think everyone has their crafting downfalls. For me, it is pumpkins. If there is a new pumpkin stamp, I pretty much want it. I can't explain why I need quite so many pumpkins. I just do.

Today I am posting 3 of the 10 cards in my "10 in 10 fall class." Students will be pleased to know that I restrained myself to only two pumpkin cards in the lot. Believe me, I have enough images for a "10 in 10 pumpkin" class. Yikes!

I know you can't really see all the cards perfectly, but I will describe them anyway. The pumpkin card on the left uses a pumpkin flourish and "give thanks" saying from Impression Obsession. I colored the pumpkin in with colored pencils and layered it onto paper by My Mind's Eye.

The central card embraces my love of animal stamps and matching puns. Forgive me for any crudeness on my part. My last class decided that the turkey wasn't harmed in any way. He was simply invited to dinner and we were both going to eat a lot. Such softies! The turkey and saying are from Cornish Heritage Farms. The image was colored with Copic markers and layered onto a background I ran through my Cuttlebug machine.

Finally, the card on the right uses a tree from Impression Obsession and a saying by Savvy Stamps. I colored the tree with Tombo markers and the trunk with a watercolor pencil and blender pen. I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but there is a soft mesh background stamped behind the tree. It is by Cornish Heritage Farms and was stamped in a light brown ink.

If you are interested in the "10 in 10 fall" class, I am teaching it again on the 15th. I also scheduled two "10 in 10 holiday classes." The samples aren't finished yet, but they should be up sometime next week.

Happy fall y'all!

Love the turkey card! I have that set and it definitely needs to see more ink. Thanks for the inspiration!

A lovely trio of fall cards. I have a soft spot for pumpkins, too. Especially pumpkin cheesecake! :-)
