Stampin' Friends August Blog Hop - Fall Theme!

Well - WOW - school started two weeks ago here in Arizona - so I guess it is officially FALL!  Welcome to the Stampin' Friends Blog Hop for August - check out my blog post below, and then be sure to hop through all the rest (links at the bottom) to see all the amazing FALL projects and ideas.
I just had to use some of the products from the Limited time set from SU! for my Fall projects for this hop.  Below is the leaf stamp from the set, stamped onto the vanilla layer with Memento ink and colored with our SU! Blends.  The leaves to me are lovely as they have such a flow like they are gently falling.  I am so in love with the blends, and could just color all night long.
After cutting out the cute little framelit (NOTE that it has stitching on the outside and inside when it cuts, so it's perfect for framing images) I stamped the leaves at the top and bottom corners and colored using Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede, Old Olive and Cajun Craze blends.  Then this layer was popped up on a Old Olive base with dimensionals.  I then stamped the leaves and sentiment on a scrap; and colored and cut out with a circle punch.  Then, also popped that layer up in the middle of the cut-out section.  I hope you can see the dimension to this in the picture below.
I stamped the leaves without coloring at all, on the envelope and the inside of the card, and I think they are lovely.  Can you tell I LOVE those leaves.
But what I think is especially great about these framelits - is that they also cut out with stitching on the inside of the layer.  Isn't it just beautiful?
I used that adorable little cut out to make this quick treat holder.  Orange pixie sticks in a cello bag - with the layer folded in half and attached to the top.
Here's another close up so you can see the stitches and the coloring. 
Hope you enjoyed my projects - now continue to hop on through the other blogs for more inspiration!  ~Maureen

I love the Blended Seasons stamp set!! And the card you made really highlights it's beauty. Plus, using that piece to make the treat topper- genius! Now I need to find all my extra window cutouts and do that too!

I love the blended season bundle a lot and I love these little leaves. Your coloring is gorgeous! And it's really clever to use the cut out tag for wrapping the pencils. Great projects!
