It's All About Stamping

Happy Fall Y’all


OCC 091209











I LOVE fall!  I’ve lived in Arizona for sooo many years and missed the fall season I remembered as a child with the colorful leaves and the smell that goes with them, the crisp air and the cool weather!  Now I get to enjoy it again here in Virginia.  Today’s card is for this week’s challenge over at Our Creative Corner.  Our September host, Dana Grothaus has challenged the OCC to create a card/project using FALL as our inspiration.  I was looking forward to this challenge…the only problem was that I couldn’t decide.  I had too many ideas!   When I saw the SCS challenge this week I knew I wanted to combine the two challenges and this is what I came up with.  Hope it makes you anxious for fall and the wonderful holidays that come with it! 

Be sure and check out the rest of the OCC design team creations!  We invite you to take the challenge and play along.  There is no time limit on our  challenges.  Feel  free to participate whenever you are able. To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave a comment linking to your project so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC

Here’s what I used:

Paper: Chocolate Chip DSP, Dusty Durango, Old Olive DSP, Confetti White, Summer Sun, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive,
Ink: Old Olive, Dusty Durange, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel,
Accessories: Mat Pack/Paper Piercer, Chocolate Chip marker, Chocolate Chip 5/8″ grosgrain ribbon, Really Rust button, Natural Hemp, Trio Flower punch, 1/4″ circle punch, Chocolate Chip Corduroy Buttons, Large Oval punch, 1 1/4″ Circle punch, Chit-Chat Rub-on, 1/8″ circle punch, Spiral punch,

Thanks so much for stopping by!
