PTI Blog Hop-Autumn Inspired!!!



Thanks to Crystal I'm here today joining the PTI blog hop. That means today is Aug. 25!!! Is September really next week????? The mornings have been crisp here and HOT throughout the afternoons, just how I like it. I'm not ready for winter, but bring on FALL!!! I love this time of year for the cool mornings, beautiful colors, football games, playing in the leaves, wearing jeans!!! The focus this month is fall-colors, leaves, pumpkins, texture. I actually have two cards I made this morning. I think I came up with two fun, new fall color combos I really like. They are similar, but still both fresh and new to me! I am sooo excited for the new pumpkin/orange color PTI will debut on Sept. 15-buttons and ribbon in this color are going to make me giddy!
I used Dark Chocolate, Melon Berry, Kraft, Scarlet Jewel and SU's Pumpkin' Pie! I added lots of layers, some twill ribbon, vintage twine, and die cut leaves. I even pulled out my crimmper and added some texture with that. Sentiment is from Limitless Labels. So this first one was my fave, but I also did this card in a similar color scheme.
I left off the Pumpkin color here and used the pine branch from Take A Bough. Sentiment is from the Limitless Labels set. I used some Damask Designs (love that leafy, elegant look of the giant damask). Finished this one off with Scarlet Jewel stitched ribbon and buttons. Off to see the rest of the Autumn inspiration. See you in the PTI forum! Hugs, Lisa

  13. I wouldn't have thought of scarlet jewel when I was first thinking of fall combos. But I have seen some awesome cards using it tonight. Both of yours fit into that category. The die cut leaves and your paper piercing on the top card are fabulous!
