The Glittering Leaves of Fall

Good Wednesday to you all, I have a gorgeous fall project to share with you today that I made for Cuttlebug challenge blog be inspired challenge. I love the colors of fall, the earthy shades of rust, marigold, and greens, and I also love the addition of dark turquoise hues.its a punch of unexpected color that draws the eye in. I hope you can really see it in the photos that this framed "ode to fall" is spritzed with the new Stampin'Up Champagne mist shimmer paint. The effect is stunning, it just sparkles so beautifully, without being too overly glittery { although I love glitter } and have stockpiled every color of glitter imaginable in the event there is ever a shortage I will be safe *wink*
You can see even if its only slightly the sparkle this leaf has in the light.
If you want to make a fall frame of your own you will need:
Divine swirls embossing folder, paper crimper
card stock:
chocolate chip, old olive, more mustard, creamy caramel, soft suede, tempting turquoise, kraft, really rust
sanded background stamp, sentiment stamp, die cut letters or stickers, leaf dies, button, and hemp twine, brads.
and most importantly champagne mist shimmer paint (a few drops in a spray bottle of alcohol)
Have fun!
Don't forget to check out all the unbelievable fall projects the rest of DT has made for you.

Shantaie you are the most talented pink-a-licious lady I've ever had the pleasure to blog with. :D I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed your blog. Thank you for leaving such a kind note on my blog. You are so sweet. I wandered over here and found an even more talented woman whose fall card is just popping with beauty. I love those leaves. Then I had to be nosey and look at the rest of your blog and boy was it fun! I enjoyed the party for your niece, Brooke - what a beautiful day that was for her, all pinked out. I have three adult sons but always longed for a little pink-a-licious girl. So your blog really made my morning. I love your creativity. Everything you made for the party was a little girl's (and mother's) dream come true. You are just an awesome person - I can tell you had fun doing it. I'm so glad you shared that. If they had party supplies like what you made, I'd have purchased them for all my friends' daughters' parties - it would have been so much fun! Very creative - I loved it!
