Is it getting crisp in the air where you live?

Fall is in the air and that is the source of Tina McIntyre's creativity with this wonderful fun Fall card !!

She has been so gracious in letting us know how she made this great card. Here are the instructions:

The Pumpkin Pie cardstock was cut to standard size card (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"), The Very Vanilla card stock was then cut to 4"x5", The Chocolate Chip cardstock was cut to 3 1/2" x 3". The Always Artichoke cardstock was cut a tad smaller, 3"x3", And I used the left over pieces of Very Vanilla to stamp my images on, along with the background of the Thankful Thoughts wording with Chocolate Chip ink.

First stamp your leaves using the stampin' spots, I would stamped back and forth from the Chocolate Chip to the Pumpkin Pie. Then run adhesive and put on top of your Pumpkin Pie cardstock. Next adhere your Chocolate Chip paper and then your Always Artichoke. Using your Chocolate Chip stampin' write marker, go around the edge to make a faux stitch line. Next color in your images that you would like to apply to your card, I used the pumpkin, sunflower and leaf (these images were stamped with Always Artichoke classic ink and then stamped on Very Vanilla). I outlined the pumpkin body with Really Rust stampin' marker, then colored it in with Pumpkin Pie, Always Artichoke with the vine and Close to Cocoa. The leaf was outlined with Always Artichoke marker and then colored in with Mellow Moss. The sunflower is only colored in with Summer Sun & Close to Cocoa. I then ran the glue down the Pumpkin and adhered. Then took my extra rubber pieces and attached them to my flower and leaf, then ran glue on those and adhered. Next I stamped the saying on Very Vanilla in Always Artichoke, glued it down to a scrap piece of Chocolate Chip and adhered with stampin' dimensionals. Finally I did a special touch with adding Crystal Effects to the images.

Tina hopes you enjoy the card, enjoy Fall and hope she has helped spark some creative juices!!!!
