Autumn Inspired Hues...

Hello peeps! Today's most pressing question for all of you ⇒ Have you had your first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season yet?  HA! I just finished mine so that I could get in the mood for fall as I wrote up today's fabulous fall inspired post! So, scroll down and take a gander at those absolutely yummy shades that we'll work with this week! While the color scheme pays homage to autumn, the subject matter is still all summer! Marcy snapped this photo showcasing peaches grabbed from a friend's backyard peach tree. She said, 'Each bite is the sweetest summer candy! With Zinnias from my garden in a zany bouquet -- you can never plant too many Zinnias and you must always pick bouquets for indoors to brighten up life!" I personally love not only the flowers but that gorgeous plate to just make it all POP!  So, how about we use this color scheme for Hues to Use  and do a little brightening up of life! 

This is how I put these colors into play....

As you can see, I used Power Poppy's clear stamp set Fall Haul. I absolutely adore this set for it's whimsical fall illustrations, all of which are perfect for those autumn inspired thinking of you cards and creations! And, here's a look at this in progress, a close-up if you will as I was coloring this harvest bounty up! 

From there, it really was just matting up my finished card. I used a mix of autumn-hued decorative papers and added that fun large copper button with some gingham ribbon. I did manage to stamp something on the inside of my creation as well. Check it out peeps -- I even used this week's color scheme for the inside of my card as well! 

And that, my friends, is it! So dig into these shades and get crack-a-lackin' with your craftin'! Once you're done, don't forget to link up your creation below. And, like we've been sharing in week's past, if you play along, you might grab our attention so much that we ask you to take center stage here as the guest hostess with the mostess! So get those fingers inky and join us in the fun!

Until next week!
