Fall Frenzy

Well, obviously I have been stamping today...not packing!  So far I have our bathing suits lying on the kitchen table.  That's it!  But I DID make 4 cards today. :)  At least I'm getting SOMETHING done, right? 

The challenge at The Friday Mashup is to make a fall card with twine.  Ooohhh, fun! 
Dynamic Duos is having a mix and match week, so I could choose any color to go with Cherry Cobbler.  I chose Cajun Craze to go along with the fall theme. 
It is a beautiful fall day here today.  The kids are anxious for more leaves to start falling so Brett will rake them into a pile for them to jump in.  I decided to mimic that on my card.
For the leaves at the bottom, I sponged Cajun Craze and Cherry Cobbler directly onto the stamps and then stamped over them with Cherry Cobbler. The bottom layer is the outline of leaves stamped directly onto the designer paper. I then used a hobby blade and mat to cut around them so I could slide the sentiment circle underneath them.  The top of the circle is popped up on Dimensionals, which you can't tell at all from the picture! 
Stamp Sets: Gently Falling, Trust God
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
Ink: Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler
Tools: 2 1/2" Circle Punch, hobby blade and mat
Accessories: Twine, Dimensionals, Regals DSP Stack
