Colorful Seasons make me smile

Welcome to this months Stampin' Friends Blog Hop. This month's theme is Fall. It's not something that we celebrate in Australia, so Iv'e created projects using autumn colours... which is a bit out of my comfort zone. 

Orange's are not my thing, so to ease into the theme I incorporated Petal Pink, now that's more me!  

I sponged Petal Pink, Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Cobbler on Very Vanilla for my leaves. Since I wasn't in my normal zone I ruffed up a scrap of Petal Pink and ran it through the Corrugated Embossing folder, then I roughed the edges a little more - where is the real Sue Vine?

To get a nice dark stamping on the sentiment I used the Stamparatus and applied and stamped Cherry Cobbler multiple times.

Lastly I dressed up my gift candle by wrapping a piece of coordinating Petal Pink and secured by tying with Linen Thread and adding a couple of spare leaves.

I hope the projects you've seen here on my blog today have inspired you & brightened your day. You are currently visiting Sue Vine at MissPinksCraftSpot. Please see the list below & hop through all of the friends on the list to see all our projects. You don't want to miss any!

Sue Vine - you are here
Ohhhh and how is this!...... I at times avoid using dark/bright  colours on my photoploymer stamps as some colours stain, so I tried the new Stamp Cleaning Pad.. check out the before and after.
