Flying back into Portland was absolutely breathtaking with all the reds & yellows. Here's a shot in our neighborhood, but it really doesn't do justice to the gorgeous colors this year.
Amazing the difference a week made. I started this card for SSS Flickr #82 right before we left. I used DIs abandoned coral, scattered straw & shabby shutters to match our neighbor's tree. Now it's practically all yellow. SSS Scattered Leaves remains one of the best prizes I've ever won--just love it! I splattered the leaves with gold watercolor & used what was left to paint a scrap of cardstock for the SSS die cut sentiment. I'm also entering DRU & The Snippets Playground.
I really had fun making my PTI MIM Matting with Glitter card. Yes, loose glitter is messy, but I still love it & pulled out a very old jar from a company no longer in business. I painted the edges of my PTI Don't Forget to Write die cut card with FlitterGlu. Then I poured on the Foxfire glitter--so pretty & sparkly with a combo of black, green & bronze. Just couldn't capture it in a photo.
I used my Mini MISTI to line up all the stamps from PTI Take Three: Fall. The pumpkins were stamped in Canyon Clay multiple times & the sentiment in Brilliance Graphite Black. I added little black nail heads from my stash. The panel is mounted to a slightly larger textured black square & then to the card with fun foam. I stamped several more panels while everything was lined up. I'll show you that design soon. I'm also entering SSS Monday, SSS Wednesday, Stamping Sensations & Words 2 Craft By. I'm still catching up with everyone--thanks for your patience.
