Glitter Queens Fall themed Hop Day One

Hello Papercrafters, 

Welcome to Day One of our Glitter Queen's Blog Hop!  Our theme this month is Fall, and it's really beginning to feel that way around here, our weather has cooled down, a lot, which puts me in the mood for fall creations. I have something different planned for every day of the hop so be sure to come back for days 2 and 3!  Today I have two cards to share, I used several new items from the holiday mini to create them. 

For my first card I used a base of very vanilla and then used the dsp 'sweater weather' to create the banner pieces, I added them to the base then stamped with versamark and the 'gorgeous grunge'  spotty stamp and heat embossed with gold.  To create the leaf I used the 'autumn accents' bigz sizzlet, then I carefully cute the corner leaf square then added a different pattern dsp to the back, it looks as if it was framed.  To embellish I added a little clip to the leaf piece and a 'in color boutique detail' to the corner. 

On the inside I just added one of the autumn accents leaves.

 I'm not sure why the color is so blue on this inside photo, because it really is very vanilla, just had a lighting problem, sorry about that.

For my second card I used a base of 'early expresso', I added some coordinating dsp from the 'sweater weather', then I added some of the burlap ribbon, the framed focal point was made with the 'peekaboo frames' bigz, (this item was carried over) then with some cs, stamping and a little glue and ribbon, a sliding window with a hidden sentiment is I cannot take full credit for this, it was cased from Julie Davison and she said she saw a version at convention so thank you Julie..........but I did change it up a bit with my cs, dsp and the stamps, I love this and I can't wait to try some other versions :-)  I also used the 'autumn accents' bigz & the' truly grateful' stamp set. 

If anyone is interested in seeing how this card was created I can create a video, just let me know in your comments!  Speaking of comments, if you follow my blog or start following and leave a comment during the hop Oct 2nd-4th you will be entered into the drawing for my blog candy!!! I have the 'magnificent maple' stamp ready and waiting for a winner, just in time for some fall projects!

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my cards, tomorrow I have some favors to share, hope you stop by.............De is next, hop on over and see what goodies she has for today!
