There's just something about this inspiration photo that spoke to me. The weathered whitewashed wood in the background. The old hymn book lying open, with slightly aged edges. The orange and yellow autumn leaves paired with the pop of red from the berry sprigs. The texture and stripes of the green pumpkins. Pair some or all of these elements together, reinterpret them and create a gorgeous new project. Use the various components literally, or take a more unconventional creative approach. Use some of your favorite things and make this a project that will allow you to stand out from the crowd!

Colleen F put together a wonderful card that utilizes the inspiration perfectly. From the two-tone pumpkins, to the die-cut leaves, she arranged everything beautifully and created a project that the recipient will surely treasure.



Dolores created this amazing project with the help of our Background Basics: Woodgrain set. I love how she rotated the scalloped layer at an angle to "point" to her sentiment and bring attention to it.

Amusing Michelle stamped an entire background with autumn leaves for her stunning project. Love how she layered the text and leaves, and then utilized the woodgrain portion of the inspiration by tying in the Woodgrain impression plate.

Congratulations to all the winners! Please send an email to customer service and provide them with your full name and the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to. Thank you to everyone for playing along with this beautiful autumn inspiration!

    I know this isn’t the correct place to ask this question, but could you please let me know if there is a special technique for getting die cuts out of your dies as there are no holes for pokey tools. For the smaller dies, I added foam, but this seriously affects their ability to cut through any thicker materials. I’ve tried wax paper as well, to try lubricating the dies so the die cut won’t stick, but to no avail.
