Autumn Days - October's Twelve Kits of Occasions

Sharron Gregory gave us the most amazing autumn kit called, Autumn Days, for October's edition of the Twelve Kits of Occasions.  I enjoyed putting each card together using the wonderful images and beautiful color scheme:

 I partially die cut this Penny Black little girl with a stitched rectangle frame.

 This Stamping Bella little lady was colored with Copics and fussy cut.
 These poor turkeys are not the greatest acrobats, but they sure were fun to color!
I had these squirrels (Lawn Fawn's Shadow Box Park Add-On) colored and lying on my desk, so I thought they'd be fun to pair with Sharron's acorn die cut.
A little Distress Oxide ink in Fired Brick and Wild Honey was blended around this sentiment.  The gold speckles were added with a gold gel pen.
These leaves were edged with gold embossing, along with some of the veins.
No photo description available.
I stayed with the same Copic combination for all of the Copic colored images:
C0, E000,00,01,11,13,21,23,27,50,51,53,55, R20,24,29, B32,34,37,91, YR00,14,18, YG91,93,95, G94, BG70,72

Thank you, Sharron, for this wonderful kit!   I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it!  Please head over to the Twelve Kits of Occasions blog for a full list of products in the kit, and much more inspiration from the talented team!

Thanks for coming over to visit!  May the Lord bless you today!

And I think it's kinda cool that so many of us paired that dark and colorful DSP with the Penny Black image...great minds do think alike! Haha!! Your Stampingbella image couldn't be any CUTER either and am totally loving that card!! And your stacked turkeys and acorn/squirrel cards are totally making me smile too!

  4. Kara gorgeous, all of them! Your colouring brings every element to life, that sweet PB girl with the rake cut out looks so cute, the dimension your colouring added to the pie, the turkeys are coloured perfectly and I love that you stacked them on top of each other and the addition of the no line coloured squirrels---amazing! You really outdid yourself! Happy fall!
