Just For Fun Friday...Celebrate Autumn!

and I have decided to Celebrate Autumn this week!  We had the option to use a selection of Autumn and Christmas stamps.  I have just been in an Autumn frame of mind so I decided to go with it.

Here are my cards....

Blue Thanksgiving

I!?!  I like blue as you know so I thought it might be fun to incorporate it into a Thanksgiving card which would usually be created with darker earth tones.  I really like how it turned out.  It's kind of fun to try using a color not normally associated with a particular holiday/season.

Watercolor Sunflowers

Yes, I seem to be on a sunflower kick - LOL!!  Seriously this was one of the stamp choices this week ;)  I actually colored the stamp using Adirondack Pigment Pens then spritzed it with water to create this watercolor image.  I added a bit more color using some watercolor pencils.

Everything Autumn Postage

This card was made using one of Just For Fun Rubber Stamps Postage stamps.  These are so much fun and it makes it so easy to create awesome faux postage!  I will be sharing a tutorial later today on how to use these stamps and templates.

  2. Love your cards Roni. And how neat the "Blue" card came out. I can't wait for the tutorial. I bought the just for fun template at a stamp show and forgot how to use them - LOL!
    Enjoy your day!

  3. I love your "Blue" card! It's still a very Autumn-y card as far as I'm concerned. Both cards are great really!!
