Be Inspired #99 Fall is Here

This week Be Inspired #99 is sponsored by The Pink Stamper.
I received some words... and this is how I used them..
A fun way to make a fall card..
Of course my background paper is Core~dinations paper... that I ran thru a Cuttlebug Folder..
Then I sanded the paper to rough it up and applied ink very softly... it absorbed it all.. and gave it a wonderful feeling...
Then I took a piece of cardstock and applied some Ranger inks on it... and some stamps by Stampington and Company and then the Pink Stamper Words...
I tore the edges of the paper and then using a Tim Holtz distressing tool, took care of the edges a little more... I used a very dark ink around the edges... coffee and sepia Archival by Ranger...
Then a bow...
I usually don't have words on the front of my cards... but I used these in a design manner..

Another one using the same words... and used the plaid method of making paper with ink pads... on the paper...
I put a white frame around the paper... and then made my background paper the same as on the first card...
Of course the flower is a QUILLED FLOWER by Cuttlebug templates... love them... have you tried them yet???
Oh you better...!!!!!
I have a nice batch of them... go to my store to check out the pricing etc...

I hope that you can enter this Challenge with us all..
Fall is a great time to make a nice stash of cards for the year ahead... and also to get started on Christmas cards...
So grab so stamps and join us in card making...
