Jo from Let’s Art Journal created a layered birthday card with an autumnal coloured maple leaf as the centre piece which was stamped using a Tim Holtz Maple Sketch Stamp onto both Ranger Kraft Paper and Watercolour Cardstock, and then coloured using Fired BrickSpiced MarmaladeMustard Seed and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks.

Andrea made a fun Fall tag using one of her favorite Tim Holtz stamps to make the background: Halftone and Rings. She also used Tim Holtz Paper Dolls, Big Chat stickers, Abandoned paper, and Merchant design tape.

Anna-Karin made a tag where almost everything shines and shimmers. The background was embossed with Tim Holtz Crackle 3-D Texture Fade, and she used his Skeleton Leaves and Fall Foliage to die cut all the wonderful autumn leaves.

Barbara chose the fabulous splendor of autumn colors for her inspiration! She used an Idea-ology Mini ClipboardTim Holtz Sizzix Potted dieTim Holtz Sizzix Fall FoliageTim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Stencil Peppermint, Tim Holtz Ranger Ink  Distress Oxides spray Black SootVintage Photo, and Rusty Hinge

Cheiron created a Mini Etcetera Tag to celebrate her love of all things pumpkin! She used a Vignette Frame to frame her photo along with some Halloween Ephemera. She added plenty of Pumpkin Pieces on a ledge made of Etcetera Pinked Trims and added some Moss to hold them all together.

Emma created a project that combined two of her favourite things about this time of year ~ Autumn leaves and Halloween. She used Tim Holtz’s Frightful Things and Skeleton Leaves dies, combined with idea-ology products, including Skull Fragments and Quote Chips to decorate an embroidery hoop to make a piece of home decor.

Kath decorated an Idea-ology Vignette Box to create a fun Autumn/Fall project using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Pressed Foliage, Sizzix Santa’s Helper, Tree Rings and Fall Foliage

Macarena loves all the Autumn warm colors so she put them on this card using Tim Holtz Large Stems die, the Timekeeper Bigz and Faceted Heart dies. She colored it with Tim Holtz Distress Sprays and Inks.

Maura is enjoying the beautiful fall colors of the Adirondacks, and made an art journal page using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Fall Foliage die , Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Tiny Toadstools stamps, and Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Filigree Squirrel die cut.

Meihsia was inspired to make a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Sizzix Fall Foliage Thinlits Die and Idea-ology Paper Stash Abandoned for the autumn leaves to decorate the tag. 

Sandra made a Halloween card, as that is her favorite part of Autumn, and she used a lot of Tim Holtz products like Distress Inks Spiced MarmaladeRipe PermissonGround Espresso and Black Soot.
