7 Kids College Fund - Fall Inspired

Good morning everyone, Happy Wednesday to all of you!  How are you on this beautiful day?  The week is half over, fall is in the air and all the wonderful smells of fall and this time of year are all around us.  I love the smell of apples, pumpkins and wood burning stoves just starting up for the season.  We've had our first taste of apple cider donuts for this season as well, yum, yum, and my son is off on an apple picking field trip with his daycare class this morning.  As crazy as this time of year can be for me it is also enjoyable and, in some ways, relaxing.  It's funny how your tastes change as you get older, but fall has really become my favorite times of year.  The leaves are just starting to turn and I just love the combination of browns, oranges and yellow you see outside right now.

All this talk of fall leads me into our challenge at 7 Kids College Fund this time around.  Our new challenge is to make something Fall Inspired.  I hope you can see all the possibilities for this one, there really are so many.  For my fall inspired project I used one of the new Saturated Canary rubber stamps, Autumn.  I love when my favorite digi artists put some of their images into rubber.  After all these years I am just a rubber stamping girl at heart!

Materials I Used for My Project:
Cryogen White Paper
Copper Heat embossing powder
Wild Orchid Flowers
MS Leaf Punch
CM Leaf Punch

I get into these moods where I feel like all of my projects are cookie cutter likenesses of one another and I just have to create with something a little different to make myself feel better.  In this case I used copper embossing powder and embossed leaves onto one of my background papers.  I actually LOVE the way it came out and I am so glad that I did it!  I don't think this picture does it justice, but it does pop in real life!

Here's a closer look at my colored image.

So what now?  Well, it's your turn to play along with our challenge!  Just make a fall inspired project using products carried at the 7 Kids College Fund store and then link it up on our blog.  If you still need a little inspiration then stop by the challenge blog to see the fabulous projects created by the other 7 Kids DT members. 

I'm going to enter my card into the current challenge at the Color Me Creative Site, which is to use Fall Colors.

Thanks so much for stopping by today,
