FM24 Autumn Colors

Good morning, Everyone! The feeling of fall is starting to creep into the air here in New York. The leaves were even starting to change while we were on summer vacation in Canada about a week ago. Time to start preparing for one of my favorite times of year!

Today on the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Create a project with an "Autumn" theme.
  2. Or Create a project using shades of "Yellow & Orange".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Autumn project using shades of Yellow & Orange".
Here I tried to incorporate several different shades of yellow and orange, and I used the Clean & Simple sketch FTL155.

I'm a big fan of stamping these leaves from this Day of Gratitude set in various colors and cutting them out. They work with nearly any layout.

Stamps: Day of Gratitude, Thank You Kindly; Paper: Tangerine Tango, Dusty Durango, Very Vanilla, Raspberry Lemonade DSP; Ink: More Musard, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze.

Thanks for stopping by!

This is so pretty I love how you used that layout with the stamp set and our challenge colors. I still haven't used this set really since we got it.. I use the words but not the others.. I need to play with it some more I think.
