This month's challenge is Halloween and Fall Fun. Autumn is my favorite time of year. I love the crisp air, cooler nights, and YES!!! All the fall colors!
Because of those chillier temps I thought the Lanterns and their warmth of candle glow would be perfect. I layered the lanterns on a large Circle Rays Duo and topped them with a Sunflower arrangement from the Lanterns Additions Set.
This time of year the Sunflowers in my garden are done for but I love seeing the Gold Finch and other birds hang up side down and pick the seeds out of the petal-less heads one at a time.
The background is loaded with fall color - Distress Oxide in Fossilized Amber, Carved Pumpkin and Ripe Persimmon is splattered with water, some watered down Barn Door, and White ink.  I topped the inky panel with the Leaves Cover Panel that lets just the right amount of color peek through! 
I forgot to mention the best part of playing along with the Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash Challenge - yes! The prize is always welcome.. but I really enjoy seeing all of the other projects linked up and the creative way the players use their products. I hope you find some time to play!

Hello! It's Candice with you at the beginning of the month to kick off this September's SYS theme-Halloween/Fall Fun! I love the change of color on the leaves and the change of color in my card making when Fall arrives! I chose a deep color palette for my Fall design today!

I used these Reverse Confetti products for my design:

I began my card with a 6 1/2 x 5 card base.

For the background, I first die cut the the panel from burgundy cardstock and trimmed the inside out using my paper trimmer to create a frame. I inked a piece of Bristol Smooth using a homemade cloud stencil with fossilized amber, scattered straw, and tea dye oxide inks. I used foam tape over the cloud background and stamped the sentiment along the top.

Next, I stamped the images from the Pick of the Patch stamp set onto watercolor paper, colored them with Zig watercolor markers, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I arranged them along the frame either gluing or using foam tape for lots of dimension. I finished with a few gold jewels!

I hope you are inspired to join in the fun of the September Stock Your Stash challenge using some Halloween or Fall themes!

List of Zig colors used: deep red, ochre, light brown, deep green, and olive green
