This month's "Best of 25" Blog Tour features Best of Autumn.  I'm really loving this stamp set.  So much variety.
 My first card uses the "rock and roll" technique to get 2 colors on the leaves.  You first ink the stamp with Tangerine Tango and then roll the edges of the stamp in Chocolate Chip.  Then stamp your image.  Each leaf will be unique.  I used the Sweater Weather DSP, Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake cs.  The Happy Birthday is from Petite Pairs.

 My next card uses the Circle Card Thinlits.  These Big Shot dies are one of the best things since sliced bread.  I remember trying to make similar cards by measuring and cutting and marking with a pencil and cutting.  So labor intensive and now SO SIMPLE and FUN.  Again I used Tangerine Tango and Chocolate Chip cs along with Sweater Weather DSP.  We used the Aqua Painters with Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry and Chocolate Chip color the pumpkins.  The leaf again uses the "rock and roll" technique.  With this thinlit die you always cut the card first.  Then you can emboss like we did on the front flap with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  The Give Thanks was cut out using the banner die in the thinlit set.

My last card uses the Label Card Thinlits.  The cs is Real Red, Garden Green and Whisper White.  The DSP comes from the I Am Me DSP.  Here we put it on the front flap and then 3 chevrons from the Chevron Border Punch.  We used the Aqua Painters with Real Red and Garden Green ink and Black Stazon. The Birthday Greetings is from the Wetlands stamp set.

 I hope you have enjoyed my stamp set samples.  All of them were inspired by other great demos.  I hope you will be inspired by my samples and change them up to your liking.  Now hop on over to Susan Carlson and see what she has created using this Best of Autumn stamp set.  See you next month!  Here is a list of the other demos that are included in this blog tour.
