Hello Fall

It's a fact now.........There was no way I had this much Confetti White (with all the little specks in it) paper - yet it just keeps growing and growing and growing!  I really don't know where it's coming from but I swear it's breeding back there in the craft room.  That's the only thing I can think of.  I know at one time I thought I just HAD to have that stuff, but really don't think I bought a ream of it!  Anyway.........here it is once again on my card.......along with that wonderful tree die that a good friend gave me!



I used one of the SU Tiny Tags, some ribbon, and the tree die from Simon Says Stamp.  I used a whole slew of snippets in various colors for the leaves. You notice that there's a few green leaves on this fall tree.....that's because fall really hasn't hit this area of Texas yet - but we're hoping for the best!

I'll enter this in the challenges at Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets), Pinspirational Challenges (inspiration photo),  CAS-ual Fridays (Fall colors and a leaf), and the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog (to use a product that's available at Simon Says Stamps - tree die).





Thanks for stopping by...........
Lynn

Love this Lynn. Your colors are just perfect, even the green. We still have plenty of green mixed in with our fall colors, actually more green and beautiful colors. Enjoy your day.

Di said...

LOVE this Lynn! That die really is a lovely one and you used it perfectly - I especially like how the little leaves (got some patience there girl!) pick out the colours in the ribbon. It's thought and care like that which makes a card so special.

Hugs, Di xx

Just stopped by to check out your blog and I love your CAS style :-)
The autumn colours look fab with the tree die and what a great idea to layer the little snippets of paper behind the leaves!
Hugs, Kat x

Love this die & love your fall tree. Not sure what you are not liking about your breeding papers, cuz I think they are purty! I like the specks in 'em. Cryogen is a lot like this too..Is this an MB die? Loved your snippets too. TFS & Hugs

I can't see the flecks in the confetti card on my computer, but I'm sure it's a perfect background! The tiny flecks add to the nature feel of the beautiful tree! Love the ribbon and our leaves are still mostly green here in NC and will be for another month probably. I see a little color, but not much.

MaxineD said...

What a stunner Lynn - you really have made the most of the die, the scraps and the ribbon.
Blessings

That tree is the cutest thing ever! I love the different colored leaves and how perfectly the ribbon matches all the colors! Fabulous!!

Keti said...

Perfect card. I love this CAS layout and the tree really fits great with our theme of autumn colors.

Thanks for sharing your project with us this week @ {PIN}spirational challenges. Hope to see you again soon.

Hugs, Keti (DT)

Love this card Lynn! That little tree is adorable and I love how you did the leaves. And that gorgeous plaid ribbon just "ties" it all together.

Vivienne Holden said...

It's the craft fairy Lynn! She comes to MY house to bring stuff in the middle of night too! Ha Ha! She did gud when she brought you all that card. It makes fabulous projects...like this one! Love that die xxx

Jessi Fogan said...

I have to laugh - why is it only the 'undesired' supplies that seem to breed? I wouldn't mind if say, rhinestones got it on in the drawer & made more. But noooooo. It's confetti barfstock. LOL!
Absolutely STUNNING paper piecing with this die - and my goodness that ribbon's perfect!

Mary Anne / MA54K said...

The ribbon and leaves are just the perfect pair!

Deepti said...

This is such a beautiful card , and I love the way you matched up the color of the leaves and the ribbon :)

Mrs A. said...

Your tree has the appearance of stained glass to me and I love the tartan ribbon you had added. Hugs mrs a.

Margaret said...

This is so pretty! I love the tree and the ribbon is perfect for your fall tree!
LOL! Is that pesky cardstock multiplying on you again?

Jeanette (Forest Ranger) said...

WOW! This is GORGEOUS!!!

Darnell J Knauss said...

GREAT snippets card, Lynn! There's that ribbon again! I actually have mine out and I'm trying to figure out how to work it into a card I'm making. The colors all work but the layout is fighting with me. You know how that goes. And I'm so with you on the confetti paper. I LOVED that stuff and do have REAMS of it. In white, it is confetti, in cream it is "rustic," and it will be here long after I'm gone! Geesh!

NanaConnie said...

OMGosh, can you tell how far behind I am with visiting my fav blogs? So sorry, my friend. I'm just buried. I love the tree (and yes, I did get that die) and your colors are simply marvelous! Fabulous ribbon.
BTW, confetti CS DOES multiply when you're not looking. I have a ream and a half of it now and I know I only bought a package of either 50 or 100 sheets. :-D

Lindsey said...

What a beautiful card! SO eye-catching. The layout, the colors, that tree die...everything is just perfect.

Cathy said...

This is absolutely amazing!

Denise@DigiHaven said...

Wow, this is stunning. I love that tree. Can you send me a link to the die? I've never seen this one before. The leaves are perfect and so is the ribbon. Living in New England (Massachusetts) our leaves are changing and the air is crisp in the mornings. I love the fall and I love this card.
