Finally- Fall and another Stampin' Friends Blog Hop!

Good Morning from Dixeland! Fall is here. It's still warm, okay hot, however the days are getting shorter and everyone is really busy. A lot of fun stuff going on. My 10 year old grandson is playing football and loves it. I'm just trying to keep up but I love fall!  It's my favorite time of the year. Thanks for joining in the Blog Hop. If you came from Steph's blog I know you enjoyed her projects.
Stampin' Up! has done good this year with some really cute stamp sets and awesome designer series paper to help us crafty types be creative. For today's Blog hop, I am sharing this awesome card. I never do square cards, so this is outside the box for me and I had a blast creating it.
It's 5.5" square, made with Cajun Craze and the Wood Textures DSP.  I used the Baby Wipe technique to stamp the leaves and cut them out with the Big shot. The pumpkin, a few leaves, and the ribbon are all copper accents. Still loving the Copper! Oh, and can you see the saying? It's embossed directly on the DSP with Copper embossing powder. Here's a close up so you can see it better. I used the envelope punch board to make the envelope out of a piece of the Painted Autumn DSP. Love that paper!
Now for my 3-D project, have you seen the TEST TUBES?  I think they are stinkin' cute. I loved them last year when they arrived in the Paper Pumpkin kit and was tickled pink to see them in the Holiday Catalog this year. So many fun projects to make with these. Add some treats, a tag and instant WOW! The Spooky Cat and the Labels of Love stamp set made these cute tags a breeze. Of course, you have to have the Everyday Label punch which coordinates with 2 stamp sets in this catalog!!!! Love that! I also made one of my favorite gifts for this time of year and boy has Stampin' Up made this easy.
Pumpkin Spice Latte is back! So... I had to make a cute gift tag. This will probably go to Cooperman's teacher the first of October. Hope you have enjoyed these projects half as much as I enjoyed creating them. I'd love to share the directions with you! Follow my blog and leave me a comment and I'll send you the PDF for all three projects.  Please don't forget to visit all the blogs and leave comments. Kim  is next. Don't miss her creations!Tell each blogger what you love about their projects. Use the #SFBloghop2017 to be entered into the drawing for the grand prize. Thanks for hopping by! Have a blessed day and be a blessing to those around you.

Love Stamping in Dixie,
