Who's starting to feel Fall-ish? I kind of am. I mean the thought of decorating a little and Fall fragrances filling the house is starting to sound appealing, but then I think about all of the leaves in the yard that need to be raked and I'm over it.
That being said, the Stamp Set I used on the cards I'm sharing with you today, holler "Yay! Falling leaves and pumpkin everything!" and I really love this set.

The majority of my cards are quick and easy. This one was a lil different. Overall the stamping and the card was easy, but when it came to coloring in the Panel it took me some time. Easy and totally worth it, but a lil time consuming.
The Stamp Set is Autumn Leaves by Wplus9. I honestly can't say enough good things about Wplus9 stamps. I can say, I don't give them nearly enough love. Shame. On. Me. I stamped the Leaves on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink then colored them in with Copic's. You can see the thumbnail link below for my color choices. Also, both cards are made from this one Panel.
When I was done coloring the Panel, I used a Sakura Pigma Micron Ink Pen to add the Black Dots and a Uni-Ball Signo White Gel Pen to add more dots and accent some of the Leaves. If I done all of this in one sitting, I would say it would have taken about 45 minutes to an hour. Totally doable, but my fingers can't take it.
The Sentiment is also from Wplus9. It's from the Hand Lettered Hello Stamp Set. I believe I've said this before, but I really do feel this Stamp Set is a MUST for any stash. It's gorgeous and versatile! I stamped this with Versafine Black Onyx Ink and heat embossed it with Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Powder.
To finish the cards off I cut two strips of DCWV Glitter Cardstock and used the Simon Says Stamp Holiday Shapes Hearts and Stars Die to die cut some hearts in the same cardstock.
It's a really bold colored Panel, so it was great to split it up and get two cards out of one.
That's it peeps. Easy Peasy. Ish.
