Fall Inspired and Playing With Sketches

This month's Papertrey Ink release really got me inspired to make some fall themed cards!  I pulled out a couple of older PTI sets and got busy creating.  Here's what I came up with:


I made this using the set First Fruits and the sentiment comes from the set Fall Elegance.  I used some dp from the First Fruits Collection and the layout is Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #24. 



For this card I used the set Wreath For All Seasons, along with Fall Elegance for the sentiment and leaves.  The dp is Autumn Abundance.  I used the Woodgrain Impression Plate to emboss the base and the layout is Card Patterns Sketch #128.



Finally, I made this for this week's Sketch Challenge #346 on Splitcoaststampers.  I used this cutie from Your Next Stamp called Shopper Fhiona along with the YNS set A Good Friend.  The dp is some super fun Echo Park Paper Co. Happy Days and I used my MFT Die-namics Upsey Daisies Dies and PTI Pure Poppy felt to make the flower.  I finished the inside very simply:



I know this is a long post but I have one more bit of info to share.  Stop by the Your Next Stamp Blog for something new and fun that will happen on the 18th of each month starting TODAY!  I know you're intrigued so go check it out!  Here's a hint:


I know that was a long post so thanks for hanging in! We have Landon's meet the teacher tonight, and then Avery and Carson's meet the teacher tomorrow! Yes, my little guy is going to school 2 days a week this year. I hope he has fun! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Thursday!
