Fall is Definitely in the Air

There is a definite nip in the air, which means that fall is here.  I always hate to see summer go.  I just love summer; the warm weather and all of the activities that go with it.  Unfortunately, we have to say goodbye and welcome the new season.  But with it comes the beautiful colors fall, especially here in the northeast. 

Today I finished a fall card using the wonderful micro fine glitter that we all love.  I adhered the different colors of glitter into the many parts of the peel off leaves.  I also used the new embossing folder, scrollworks and one of my favorite layouts.  This layout is simple, yet elegant and works well with so many themes.  And to top it all off, it's quick.

And if you want to make your leaves in no time, use only one color of glitter, as Soni did in the card below.

Soni layered the glittered peel off leaf onto embossed cardstock that was sanded and distressed.  If you took Sherry's class last fall, you may remember we made a similar card.  Soni now took it to another level by adding the glitter and decorative peel offs.

I only wish you were able to see all of the sparkle in these cards.  The pictures do not do them justice.

So, put on a sweatshirt, get a cup of hot tea and start making your fall and Thanksgiving Day cards to warm your spirits!

Thanks and
Happy Stamping,
