Let's Skip Summer

And go straight to fall!  I think that's what the folks at Global Design Project did.

Not that I'm complaining, I love making fall cards and scrapbook pages, but doesn't this color combination look like fall to you?  So I made a fall card even though it's June.

I'm so glad that SU! brought back glossy white cardstock, because it means I can do polished stone again!  You put a bit of isopropyl alcohol on a cotton ball, then a few drops of ink refill in whatever colors you want, then pounce it on the cardstock and it all blends together.  You just have to be careful with the color balance:  I used Real Red and Pumpkin Pie, and with two drops of red and three of orange it came out looking ALL red.  So I did two drops of red and five of orange, and that was a better balance.  Then I just cropped some leaves with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.

I used this week's sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping:

You can just see the Rich Razzleberry circles peeking out beneath my leaves.  I'd wanted to use the Stitched Shapes Framelits, but even the smallest circle was a little too large to use on a regular A2 card front, so I switched it out for a 1" circle punch.

I hear my kiddo talking so I'm going to get him up, feed us both, and head for the gym.  Cheers, y'all!
