Fun in the Fall

Hello friends!  I can almost feel it in the air!  Fall is coming near and I’m looking forward to joining in the crisp cool air and pretty colors with the changing leaves.  These are just a couple of things that I love about this season!  How about you?

Well this sweet little penguin certainly knows how to have fun in the Fall for sure:

Vicki-PenguinFuninFall-Sept 11

Here’s another September release from Whimsy Stamps called Penguin Fun in Fall image by Crissy Armstrong.  Of course I grabbed my purple color markers to color his hat and scarf!  LOL!  I decided to create a purple and turquoise plaid pattern.  I also gave the leaves in the air a bit of movement with my coloring as if he’s throwing them up in the air.  Trying to be a bit different with my layout, so I tilted the image panel and cut it off on the right side of my card base.

I’ve also used the September release digital papers from Whimsy Stamps called Autumn Beauty.  These are fabulous papers and I know I’m going to be using some more of these on an up-coming card!  I’ve used two differnt patterns on the background and the banner strip.  Lastly, I added some fun Autumn Leaves sequins from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.  I’ve actually had it for a while and hoarded the package and not used it until now!  I filled the centers of the round ones with some gold Stickles.  I also added a twine bow at the bottom of the banner strip.


Here’s a closer view of the image.  Here you can see where I’ve used some foam dots to pop up the fussy cut penguin for a bit of dimension. (I’ve also colored the one underneath as you can see it peeking out a bit on the side.)   I cut the image panel out with a stitched square die, sponged around the edges with some Spiced Marmalade distress ink and then went over the edges with some clear glitter Stickles as well as put some on the penguin’s hat tassel.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my colorful Fall card today! Thanks for stopping by as I really appreciate seeing your encouraging words or knowing you’ve stopped by! 🙂
