The colors of fall

While my post today holds fall leaves and fall colors everywhere, we are actually in a heatwave here!!! We are pretty sure it is still summer.
 First up I played along with the color combination at Colour Q.  I used "FALL" as my theme since these colors fit so perfectly. 
 The sentiment piece is cut with my Cricut.  The leaf is a Tim Holtz stamp that I inked with two different colors of Distress Stain.  I applied the stain directly to the stamp. 
 This is the Colour Q combo. 
 This also fits with the Cas-ual Fridays challenge to use your own blog banner as inspiration. Since mine is a photo of some leaves that I took, I thought this fit really well.  PLUS - this fits the "leaf inspiration" challenge at Simon Says Stamp & Show. 
 Next up, my Card Positioning Systems card for this week.
 Again, I used a set of leaves from Tim Holtz.  The set comes with larger leaves and smaller ones.  This card uses the smaller ones, again inked with Distress Stains applied directly to the stamps.
Here is the CPS sketch.  This card also fits the same Cas-ual Fridays challenge and the same Simon Says Stamp & Show challenge.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
