Get your "FALL" on!

 For the first Challenge in October, it is time to get your Fall on!  The challenge this week at the Mod Squad, is to make anything Fall.  Fall images, Fall colors, anything that makes you think Fall!  That is it, easy right?  Lets get the show started.  I would love to see what you creative crafters come up with.  
                Our sponsor this week is Gina K Designs.

A free community featuring card making, stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters featuring stamps by Gina K. Designs.Be sure to check out StampTV for a ton of great videos and techniques. They also have weekly challenges. Shop Gina K Designs
The prize is a great grab bag. You can check the link above to see what others have won.

Here is my example for Fall
 To make this card, I used The Simple Things stamp and the free cut files that Gina gives you.  I colored the leaves and pumpkin with Copic markers.  I used Gina's heavy and layering weight card stock in white. Embossing Folder for texture and Stitched rectangles for a frame. 

For my next example, I went with gold  embossing powder for the leaves and lots of glossy accents on the leaves.  The card stock is Faded Brick with coordinating ribbon.  I used an embossing folder, Leaves, on Ivory card stock. Stamp set was the first one that I bought from Gina K,  A Year of Leaves.  In this photo, the color is off, but I was able to catch the shiny leaves. That is a spellbinder die for the sentiment.

Be sure to add MSC in front of your link name for an extra entry if you use the Gina K.  image/product.  See HERE
