Fall Has Arrived at Squigglefly...

Welcome back to another wonderful week at Squigglefly where this week's challenge is Let's Do a Fall Theme Card!  Holley would love to see a card of your favorite fall theme colors:  oranges, browns, yellows, rusty reds or olive greens OR pick a Fall theme--falling leaves, Thanksgiving, Pumpkins, Halloween....you could even do both!  Here is my DT card this week featuring the precious image Noah and His Autumn Leaves, by artist Cheryl Alger and I've chosen to combine both elements of the challenge.  The background is clear embossed with leaves and brayer colored using TH DI's Vintage Photo,Wild Honey, and Antique Linen.  Keeping with a "leaf" theme, I've continued on with a leaf patterned dp for a tag and the large brown circle behind the main image has been wood grain embossed.  Copics colored little Noah up and the final embellishment of a few die cuts in Autumn colors.   
I also had the honor of using Three Little Pumpkins by artist Denise Clemmensen. Decided to recycle a little cereal box and added the cute image, a picket fence, full moon, and a wire tree as well as a handle and a bow.  The contents are filled with Pez dispensers as they are my weakness!!  This image is also available at the Squigglefly store.
 
"Tis the season around these parts for festive Autumn colors and cards, so be sure to stop in and submit your cards too!  Remember, if you use a Squigglefly image, you'll be in the drawing for a prize. Yeah!
Thank you so much for all your very kind comments and the time you spend to visit me.
Hugs n' Happy Stamping to you,
Lisa xx

You've captured Fall beautifully - I love the leaf background on the first, and the spooky elements of Halloween on the second! I would love to take a peek around your house - I bet there are fabulous creations at every turn!

Lisa, these are both so amazing. I love Cheryl Alger's images and there are so many fabulous new ones. Noah is so sweet sitting in the leaves and you've surrounded him with such a beautiful setting. Love your three little pumpkins card - both spectacular!

I love visiting you Lisa - you usually give me something to laugh about. These pumpkins are too good to be true and your calico cat - marvalous my darlin'! Now when was the last time I had a little cereal box around. Well I just can't hardly remember. You're just too talented - too talented for words. I love to sing.

How gorgeous is that background?! About as wonderful as that sweet image! He looks like he's up to something... probably planning to TP someone's house! Not that I would know anything about that kind of thing...
The recycled cereal box is awesome! Love those pumpkins behind the fence and that wire tree!! You love Pez dispensers?! DD#1 is fascinated by them! I can't stand the candies but do like the holding containers! Wasn't it Stand By Me that talked about pez...grape pez if I'm not mistaken.

Holly said...

What great cards Lisa! I really love the background you created for your little Noah card. Beautiful colors on the image too.

Your second card is what a Halloween card should be - spooky and fun rolled into one! Love the little picket fence at the bottom and that black vine on the side. Wonderful job!

Lori said...

FABULOUS! Love the background you created on the first card and what wonderful coloring on that sweet image. LOVE that box!! Gorgeous ribbons and image...

Tracy said...

That stamped and brayered background looks awesome. Adds great texture and depth. Awesome coloring on Noah too. The second project is lots of fun. YAY for Pez! LOL Hugs!
