September SAS - Part 2

I'm a little late getting Part 2 of my September Stamp-a-Stack posted on my blog. Forgive me but life just gets in the way of my fun stuff, LOL!!!!

These are both fall cards. I know that fall begins on Wednesday but our temperatures here are still in the 90s. I'm anxious for some cooler fall-like weather.

This first card was my card submission for the Holiday Mini swap I participated in with the Gateway Glitter 'n Ink group. I used the new "French Foliage" stamp set from the Holiday Mini and the Autumn Spice Specialty Designer Series Paper. The other colors of paper and ink are: Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Old Olive and Early Espresso. You may not be able to see it but I stamped the little blobs of spatter stamp on the card base using Cajun Craze. To give everything an "aged" look I sponged around everything with Cajun Craze. I loved how it turned out -- what do you think?

Next up is one of my all-time favorites!! I know I say that alot but I just love so much of SU's stuff. Take a look at it and you may agree.

Isn't she just the cutest? It makes we want to eat Campbell's soup!! She is from the "Greeting Card Kids" stamp set on page 36 of the 2010-2011 Idea Book. The colors may not come out true in the picture but I used Cajun Craze, Basic Black and Wicked Fun Specialty Designer Series Paper. Some of the circles are "flocked" on the DSP. I wanted to try my hand at the ruffled ribbon at the bottom. It was so easy -- just a little Sticky Strip and you gather the ribbon and stick it down -- easy, peasy!!! I didn't have any current SU buttons so I used a retired button. I colored the little witchy using my blender pen and markers (Rich Razzleberry, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Old Olive, Blush Blossom and Basic Black). She is just too cute to spook!!

Thanks for stopping in. I hope to have a sampling from my upcoming Holiday Stamp Camp so stay tuned.
