Fall is in the air

The days are shorter and cooler, the acorns are falling, school is days away, pumpkin spice lattes are calling my name...fall is in the air!  While I love the long, dog days of summer, I always look forward to fall and all of the beautiful colors it brings.
I finally broke out my Wonderfall stamp set and Autumn Accents Bigz Die this morning and put it to work in the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.  I gave the Pom Pom Challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments too.  Not going to lie...this pom pom challenge was not an easy one for me.  Give me some ink and paper and I'm good to go, but give me fabric and ask me to make something with it and I freak out!  But, then I remembered I had pinned a cute wreath on Pinterest a few weeks ago that had a tutorial for a felt flower, so I looked up my pin, substitute the cute Orchard Harvest fabric for the felt and made my flower, which is kind of pom pom-ish :)


Don't you just love the Orchard Harvest DSP and fabric?  So many great fall colors and so many different projects to use them with!

Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso Core'dinations
Ink ~ More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso
Stamps ~ Wonderfall, Seasonal Sayings
Other Supplies ~ Orchard Harvest Fabric, Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Naturals Designer Buttons, Linen Thread, Autumn Accents Bigz Die

Getting ready to wrap up my work day and head on over to the boys' school for a back to school watermelon feed and meet their teachers.  They have a fun little back to school gift for their teachers...I'll post pics soon :)

Happy Stamping!
