InKing Royalty Blog Hop: Autumn

Welcome to InKing Royalty's September Blog Hop! This year's Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word - and this month our projects are centered around AUTUMN. There is so much to love about the transition from summer to winter, and we are excited to share our Autumn-themed projects with you today! After you read my post, I hope you'll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I LOVE fall colors! And coffee!

I'm smitten by all coffee stamps and dies. The Cup of Christmas stamp set and Cup of Cheer dies are for year-round fun!!! Recently I saw a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers by Frenchie, called Q-tip Pointillism. This is how I colored the bare trees, with mini cotton swabs (meant for manicures). I smooshed the ink pads to get ink on the lids. The ground is touched with Pear Pizzazz Blends. The base and mug are both Very Vanilla thick cardstock. I mentioned on the last post I purchased the Seasonal Layers dies primarily for the Adirondack chair, but look at how gorgeous these leaves are!!! The sentiment is from Beauty & Joy.

Stamps: Nature's Beauty (trees), Beauty & Joy (sentiment)
Dies: Cup of Cheer, Seasonal Layers, Layered Ovals, Rectangle Stitched framelits
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red
Cardstock: Pear Pizzazz, Crushed Curry, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you'll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, the fabulous Julie DiMatteo at The Paper Pixie.
