TAC Flavor of Fall Blog Hop

Hi all! It’s time for another TAC blog hop, this one is for the flavor of fall! I made two cards to share. The first is using one of my new favorite sets, Damask backgrounder. I colored direct to stamp with yellow, orange and red Impress markers and then highlighted with a white gel pen. The Sentiment is from Wonder and Joy. I popped it up and covered the … with pearls and put the second part of the saying “is filled with blessings!” on the inside.

Fall Damask

The next card uses the set Good Timber. I stamped it in Versa Mark and colored it with chalk. The background I smeared Versa Mark on and chalked. Then I decided it needed a bit more so I stamped another tree and popped it up! I tore the edges, inked and wet them to roll it up a bit.

Fall Tree

I love the effect the chalking gave the tree. I love the change of leaves in the fall and the blending of yellow, orange and red just hit the spot. I looked out at the many, many leaves in my yard that need raked up and decided to add some color around it on the ground for the fallen leaves, just wish I could send my leaves away as easy as sending a card!

Fall Tree 2
