Welcome to September! Wow! I am always glued to the TV with all the specials from 9/11 every year, but this year, I had to really prepare mentally for the 20th Anniversary. Do you remember what you were doing or where you were at on that fateful day? What a day of remembrance!

That being said, this is the month of Autumn! My favorite season besides Christmas which really isn’t a nature season, but it is a season! Right? I do like Winter too! Living in San Diego, we don’t really see changing leaves to the extent of most other places. We do have some trees that change color, but I do long for the landscape everywhere to be a burst of golds, reds, oranges and greens.

There are a number of glorious papers in the July-December Mini Catalog that reflect what Autumn is all about! The Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper (#156458) is bursting with golds, deep blackberry, gold and browns. It is integrated with some gold foil elements which make it even prettier! It is part of the Blackberry Beauty Suite (#156278).

Also, check out Harvest Meadow Designer Paper (#156494) part of the Harvest Meadow Suite Collection (#156280). It bursts with Harvest, Autumn colors!

Are You looking for some inspiration?  Look no further.  Check out this Adorable Pumpkin Card.  It uses the Pretty Pumpkins bundle (156478).  I love the combination of Rich Razzleberry, Blackberry Bliss, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Old Olive.  The water color background paired with Staz On black ink make the colors pop.  The pumpkin becomes a key focal point when placed on top of the vellum.  Add a little Blackberry Bliss ribbon and Old Olive vines to make it pop even more.  I can’t wait for you to try your hand at making this card!

I think this Autumn color wheel shows it all…it is from Country Living, but I wanted to let you all know that Stampin’ Up! has all of the colors! Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Cinnamon Cider, Crushed Curry or Bumblebee, Gray Granite, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow or Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Misty Moonlight and Basic Gray!
