Fall 2015 Inspiration Board #3

whole board

family layout

I love the simplicity of this layout, with room for 4×6 photos as well as journaling.  I also appreciate the color combination together with the seasonal trees…perfect for documenting all your fall memories!

8 leaves

It looks simple, but it was actually a pretty involved card.  I used a leaf Framelit on a scrap piece of paper to create a stencil.  Then I used a sponge dauber with the stencil to ink the light green on each of the leaves.  A coordinating leaf stamp added the darker green element which brought the whole card together.

5 acorns

This card uses the new Stampin’ Up! Acorny Thank You stamp set and acorn builder punch with fun fall colors.  It is a perfect pairing with the woodgrain embossing folder!

ghost with bow

Here’s lookin’ at you, kid!  A quick and easy geometric card featuring lots of layers.

nuts about you

This card provides an opportunity to let your creative energy flow.  The sides of the tree are made with oval dies, but the branches are all up to you.  Let go of any tendencies toward perfection you may have and have fun!

folds and polka dots

Yay for fun folds!  The center is folded in the opposite direction as the outer piece.  All you need is a sharp blade and a scoring tool – Viola!
