Autumn Style

Hello and welcome to day 3 of the Papertrey Ink August countdown!
Today is the first group post and it's all about updating traditional autumn looks in a more trendy, modern way.  The new Brushed Off stamp set makes it all happen, and what a cool and trendy set this is!  Perfect for fall, or any season.  Just change up the colors of your favorite design and you've got yourself a new, cool card.

We are also pairing this set with new dies, Leaf Silhouettes die set and Branching Out die.  Check it out!...
Let's begin with these marvelous colors.  I mean, bring on the sweaters!  Kraft, scarlet jewel, autumn rose and orange zest make for such a cozy color combo.  I love it!
Here's How:  I started with the summer sunrise and overlapped the edges of one of the Brushed Off image each time I stamped from one color to the next.
This one features the Branching Out die and the Super Swoosh "hello" die.  Cutting them from neutral colors allows them to pop off the colorful backdrop.  A few tiny staples hold everything into place.
Same idea as the first card, just swapped sides.  This simple stamped design could easily be recreated in any color combo you desire.
Here I've used the Leaf Silhouettes die set and the Super Swoosh "congratulations" die.  Again, a few tiny staples hold everything into place.
Well, that concludes today's look at the Brushed Off stamp set, Leaf Silhouettes die set and Branching Out die. Just remember... all that you have seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning August 15th.  More details on these products can be found at the Papertrey Ink blog.

Now, be sure to see what the rest of the Papertrey Ink design team has in store for you today...
