Autumn ATCs


Fall is coming.  Even though my mid to high-90's days aren't ending.  Even though it still feels like it's in the 100's.  Fall is coming.  It has to!!!

To get in the spirit and mood (cool thoughts and all), I joined a Fall-Themed ATC Swap.  (Of course I did!)  Pumpkins and gorgeous colors, leaves and burlap.  Ahhh, the very thought makes my brain feel cooler!  I got finished with all 10 cards and then my best friend said she wanted them all and why did I have to make each one different!  So I scrapped the idea of these cards being used for the swap and gave her her pick (5 of them!) and am in the process of trading the rest of them to other people.  I do love how they turned out!

Materials used:

Various stamps, burlap, glitter glue, Glossy Accents, Distress Inks, scrapbook papers, old book papers, a leaf stencil I borrowed from my friend (one of the crafter's workshop stencils), Micron pens, acrylic paint, washi tape, and some cupcake toppers! 

I found the orange leaf and trio of pumpkins at Hobby Lobby for under $1.  They're cupcake toppers found in the Fall Decor section.  I thought they would work wonderfully as collage pieces.  I was pleasantly surprised at how well they do work (even though it was my idea!). 

After scrapping the idea of using these pieces for my Fall Swap, I had to come up with a new idea.  I'll share those ATCs with y'all next time.

Until then,
