SNSS Fall Frenzy Blog Hop

Hello stamping friends!!  We are so excited about Fall arriving soon that we've decided to celebrate the season with a Fall Frenzy Blog Hop & Virtual Stamp Day! 
The Design Divas have created some fabulous eye candy for you featuring our wonderful selection of Fall stamps so we hope you'll hop along with us today!
Be sure to stop along the way because we'll be drawing one lucky commenter from a random DT blog to win a $25 credit to the store!!

Today I am showcasing two Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps sets and first is Leaf Silhouettes:
 I love the solid leaf image in this stamp set and used Big Brush markers from Design Memory Craft to color directly on the stamp for the leaves.  I did a bit of combining colors to mimic the fabulous colors God reveals through the fall season as the leaves slowly change colors.  I did a bit of flicking (by coloring on my craft mat with a brown marker, spritzing with water, and picking up the color with a water color brush) to fill in a bit of the "white" space.

Don't you just love the fall colored M&M's that are showing up in stores???  I accented this little treat container using some Simple Stories patterned paper, Spellbinders dies and a sentiment from the stamp set:
And the other fall stamp set I am showcasing is Autumn Leaves:
For this card, I scored a piece of Ivory card stock every 1/4" and stamped the leaves using Versafine ink.  I colored them using Big Brush markers and sponged over it with Old Paper distress ink.  Then I stamped over it with Friendship Script.  Love the "tile" like design to the background!!!

Here's the list of blog participating in today's hop:


When you're done hopping be sure to join us for a fun day of challenges over in our Splitcoaststampers forum.  We're giving away some fun prizes, too, so don't miss it! We look forward to seeing your fabulous Fall creations!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day! 
Blessings,

I love the Autumn look to all of your projects, but that clear pillow box with M&M's just blows me away! I love that die cut you wrapped them up with, and the tiny tag w/twine adds to the cuteness of a great treat!
