12 Kits Of Occasions Oct. 2019 - AUTUMN DAYS

Hello friends.  It's the end of the month and time for the 12 Kits Of Occasions post, which Sharron is hosting and calling AUTUMN DAYS.

Look at all the beautiful images, die cuts, and lovely Fall papers Sharron gave us to work with this month!  Fall is definitely a favorite of mine, so this kit was pure joy to work with!  To see a list of all the supplies Sharron included in this kit, click HERE.

I started with this sweet Penny Black image (Hello Autumn) and colored her with my Copics and then fussy cut her out.  I used one of the pieces of DSP Sharron included in the kit as a background and also fussy cut one of the leaves from a leftover scrap and pop dotted it for the little girl to look up at.  Here's a closer up:

Hard to see, but I used WOS on that pop dotted little leaf too!

I just LOVED this die cut acorn that Sharron included in the kit, and just added some more of the beautiful DSP and also added a strip of Honey Nut cs that I ran through my Big Shot with an FSJ embossing folder.

Looks like Sharron and I were thinking along the same lines when it came to using this image and the plaid background DSP!  Such a CUTE image and I can just smell the apples and cinnamon in the air!!

I loved this sentiment Sharron included in her kit too, and wanted it to take center stage.  I used The Greetery's Crimped Frame Die to cut out the sentiment and then ran it through with the same FSJ embossing folder that I used on the acorn card.  To make the leaves pop a bit more I used some Vintage Photo DOX ink and lightly blended over the top, before adding to another Honey Nut piece of cs also embossed with the FSJ embossing folder.  Add a few of the leaves Sharron included in the kit and also the piece of twine Sharron had used on the tag that she wrapped our kits up in.  This card has also been quite liberally sprayed with Sheer Shimmer Mist, so IRL it really sparkles!

Are you getting tired of the Honey Nut cs and the FSJ embossing folder yet??!!  I made a little pillow box (SU!) with a window (so you can see what treat I end up deciding to add!) and used a PTI die (Tag Sale #10) to add the scalloped frame in gold mirror cs.  The little tag is from part of the DSP Sharron included in the matched so beautifully with the Honey Nut cs!

And here they are all together!  The air has been pretty cool here the last few weeks and colors are at their peak, so this was just perfect timing to be working on this beautiful kit Sharron put together!  You can check out what the rest of the DT did with this same kit right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

Stunnig projects, Marcia. I think the card with the girl is my favourite, I love the black paper with the leaves on it, very dramatic. The box with the little fox is cute too.

Love how you added so much texture with that awesome embossing folder, the square pillow box with the tag. Your really did some different t hings with the kit--bravo!

Oooh my friend, you've rocked Sharron's kit this month. I adore your sweet PB card with the little leaf popped up, and the giant pie girl... so cute! I want a yellow polka dotted sweater now. ;0) All the embossing on the honey nut cs is simply fabulous and yes, that pillow box is darling, especially with the little fox tag you made. You nailed it this month my friend!!

Bonnie said...

I love all things Fall too, Marcia, and these projects are amazing! I especially love the first card with the falling leaf and the sweet little girl with her rake!

Lisa Elton said...

I completely screwed up my little PB girl, but I love the way you've colored yours! The texture you've added to these is marvelous and that pillow box is a real treat! No, I'm not sick of the FSJ embossing folder at all, I love it! But who is FSJ, I'm having a senior moment here LOL!!!

Sharron said...

SO Amazing! Love what you've done with the kit, Marcia! The first design is so creative with fabulous coloring and wonderful fussy cutting. The single leaf you added is such a sweet idea. And I adore the SB girl with her polka dot sweater! I'm loving all the ways you used that leaf embossing folder too!

Kara Lynne said...

More, more! I could look at your cards all day, Marcia! So creative with that pop dotted leaf and she is gorgeous! The embossed honey nut cs makes that acorn card so warm and cozy! You and Sharron had the same idea for the pie lady's bg, and you and I both have her standing on the "Thanksgiving"! I absolutely need to remember your embossing idea with that sentiment, and your pillow box with the die cut window and fox tag just made me gasp out loud! Amazing cards, as always, Marcia!
