Countdown to Confetti - Day 2

Thanks for all of the love yesterday on my projects!  I've been having lots of fun, and today the fun continues!  Only 2 more days until you can get these new Reverse Confetti stamps for your very own!


Today, the stamp set being featured is Forever Fall, and I also used Lighthearted Letters:

I've got 2 cards to share with you today - this first one also uses I Like You, but in a non-traditional way.  


Do you see it?  I used the line, and the dotted line images to make the pattern on the orange CS.  I made a little mask for the pumpkin, and stamped the acorn next to it.  Aren't those polka dots the cutest??  I think my favorite image in the set is the woodgrain though - you can't see it in this photo, but it has a cute heart shaped 'knot' in the wood.  Love it.  I seem to be using a lot of copper lately, so I dug out my old copper cording from SU! (do any of you still have yours??  I've got the gold and silver, too...I think I'll have them forever! - HA!) anyway, I wrapped it around several times, and tied it in a little bow.

Next up?  My anniversary card!  Done nice and early :)  Luckily, my husband doesn't read my blog, so no spoilers here!

Now for this one, I started with a base of a golden yellow CS, and used my Copics and airbrush to make the background from red to orange to yellow (though I must say, I think I need a compressor -- the air cans get too cold, and the air doesn't work right! :( )  BUT - I digress... I made the background, and then I cut the tree free-hand with my hobby blade.  Took the tree and ran it through my CB with a wood-grain impression plate.  I made the sign using the wood-grain stamp from Forever Fall, and letters from Lighthearted Letters.  I really love that Jen included numbers and characters in the set as well!  There's some of that copper cord again, too, draped over the branch to hold my sign. (kinda crazy to think I'll be married 14 years this year...clearly I'm not old enough for that!)

Here's a close up of the sign

Can you see the heart shaped 'knot' in this one?  really cute.  I finished off the inside of this one - take a peek


Isn't that a great sentiment?  That's pretty much how I feel about him. <3 p="">
Don't forget! Be sure to check out the other peeks today, details on the Reverse Confetti Blog!

Also be certain that you leave a comment on the designer blogs for your chance to win a $15 Gift Certificate!!  Comments close at noon CST on September 7th with the winner announced at 5pm that day.

Thanks again for coming by!!  Hope you have a great day!!

Until Next Time,
Tracey

Two gorgeous projects - love the rich color schemed on the first one and the tree with the signage is so creative. My husband doesn't read my blog either. I could write that I was planning on divorcing him and cleaning out the bank accounts and he wouldn't know it until the actual deed was done!
