TGIF! (Thank Goodness It's Fall)


It's time for the DeNami Design October blog hop.  The theme for this month is fall.  I am so thankful that fall has arrived.  The temperatures had cooled, but we were back up into the 80's this week.  Still better than our summer temperatures this year!

You should have arrived at my blog from Vera's blog.  I am sure she had some wonderful inspiration for you.  If you didn't come here from Vera's blog, you can always pop back to the DeNami Design blog to start at the beginning if you have gotten lost along the way. 

Now on to my project for the hop!


I used a stamp positioner and stamped the Pumpkin Patch Border twice at the top and the bottom.  I used a mask to cover the the first image so I could line them up next to one another and colored the pumpkins using Copic markers.  I stamped the Pumpkin Chickie, colored it with Copics, and punched it out with a circle punch.  I sponged some Stampin' Up! Crumb Cake ink to warm up the white.  I stamped the Double Circle and used a circle die to cut it out, then cut a larger circle and embossed it.  The scalloped circle was cut at 3" using my Cricut and the Lacy Labels cartridge.  The green panel is also embossed.  I added som pearls and raffia to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget to comment on each of the blogs along the way.  DeNami Design will give away three $20 gift certificates.  Two lucky commenters will each receive a gift certificate and one gift certificate will be given to a random participant (design team members are ineligible).  You have until October 10, 2011 at 11:59 PST to comment to be eligible to win.

The next stop on your journey of fall inspiration is Pattie.  From what I have seen on her blog, I am sure she has something fabulous whipped up for you!
