A Bounty of Fall Cards

As the weather cools down a bit, and the kids go back to school, my thoughts on colors turn to Fall.  I love fall colors and imagery. OK, I love all the changes of season with their different color pallets and themes.  So with out any further ado....may I present to you a bounty of Fall cards.

soft and subtle on the outside..

and happy and excited on the inside

Happy birthday! I love the pop and cuts die!

not sure if it's "fall" but I super love this one.

If you have any questions on product or how to do something, just let me know.

Magnificent Maple, RemARKable Blog Tour

Hello Blog, I have missed you!  The end of summer was a bit busy in the Monk house.  School has started and it's still busy, but I've had more time to get creative in the studio.  I've been making cards like crazy ( 6 handmade cards went out this week!).

For The RemARKable stamp tour I was playing with this really awesome leaf stamp.  I see many more cards and projects with this stamp to come...but for this post I wanted to keep it simple.  Some smoky gray embossing powder and a bit of summer starfruit ribbon on the ever gorgeous night of navy card stock, voila!
