Fall is here and such a beautiful time of year.  If you look at the colors surrounding you this time of year, you’ll notice more than just the traditional colors of red, orange, and yellow, but also soft pinks, aquas, and deep reds.  My cards today focus on those non-traditional colors of fall using the gorgeous Auburn Lane collection from Pink Paislee.

I’ve used the Fall Break Thankful stamp set from Carta Bella Paper Company on my first card, stamping my pumpkins across the bottom of my Kraft cardstock base.  I stamped in light colors of pink, melon, aqua, and green.  Everything always looks so different and subdued when stamped on Kraft cardstock…give it a try!

Next, I stamped my aqua pumpkin on a die cut tag and stamped the sentiment across the top.  To finish, I added sequins and a seam binding bow, also in aqua, to tie in my colors and add softness.


My second card, uses a pre-printed image, cut from a sheet of paper from the Auburn Lane collection.  I dressed it up by using some stamped leaves and sentiment, also from the Fall Break Thankful stamp set, and dies from the Auburn Lane Ephemera pack.

To finish, I added in coordinating patterned paper, sequins, and seam binding.

Celebrate Autumn by creating in some non-traditional colors.  You’ll love what you come up with!
