A HIP HOP and WELCOME FALL

I can't believe that pretty soon the leaves will start turning and the cold brisk nights will be upon us, and many pumpkins will be picked.  I happen to love FALL and I love what I call "jeans & sweater weather". 

And what better way to ring in the fall, but with a layout using Unity's Simple Blessings stamp set available in stores.  I had fun using just about every stamp from this set.

  • 3 pumpkins

  • leafy swirl

  • sentiment

  • leaves



I had a ton of fun making the background with a combination of a Luminarte product called RADIANT RAIN, and some Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels.  Below, I stamped the swirl 2 times, and then spiced them up with stickles (orange and cinnamon).



I stamped the 3 pumpkins, cutting out the one in the middle for a pop-up effect.  They are colored with Copic markers.  The lace has been sprayed with various mists.


I stamped the leaves onto white paper, colored them, and inked the edges.


SUPPLIES:
Paper: Basic Grey, Prima, Prism Simply Smooth
Lace: Prima
Stamps: Unity Stamp Co. (Simple Blessings)
Mists: Tattered Angels, Luminarte
Markers: Copic
Ink: Stewart Superior
Stickles: Ranger Industries
Chipboard: Prima
