The Color of Fall                                                          

I love this time of year. The weather starts to get cooler (well, a little for those of us living in Florida), the leaves change color (not in Florida) and we embark on shorter days (yep, we DO get that!) and preparations begin for the holidays (We DEFINITELY do that!).  I wanted to try the "Triple Time" technique with this stamp set and I think it turned out pretty well.  Here's how it's done: 1) Cut your Vanilla cardstock in varying sizes. 2) Cut the Mustard cardstock 1/4" larger than the Vanilla pieces for layering. 3) Now it's time to stamp. Lay all three Vanilla pieces of cardstock on top of each other in their graduating sizes. I used a TINY, TINY bit of SNAIL to hold each layer in place.  4) Stamp randomly in the various leaf images. 5) Stamp the background stamp (it really doesn't matter if you do the background first or last). 6) Carefully pull your layers apart and mount them on the Mustard cardstock.  7) Embellish as desired.  8) Layer them on your cards base and adhere.   That's all there is to it!
