Have I mentioned I like PSL?

So when it came to the Lawn Fawn Challenge of making a scene I just had to use my new "Pumpkin Spice" set by Lawn Fawn.
Then I was thinking about the chipmunk that keeps popping his head out of the hole in the front of my house and that was that...

The base card is white linen card stock with the verse from Lawn Fawn;s "Pumpkin Spice" stamped with StazOn jet black ink.
There is a layer of black card stock applied to the base card.
The main piece is water color paper with the scene stamped using Lawn Fawn "pumpkin spice" and "joy to the woods" with StazOn jet black ink and some masking.
The coloring was done with Artist's Loft water color pencils and a water color brush.
Once it was totally dry I taped it to the card.

This one required Google...

I have had this set for a very long time and I thought i knew what it was...I didn't.
Today i looked at the stamp more closely to realize it was has different tree images in each, what I call panes of glass.
Then it was over to Google to find what I should color them.

The base card is cream car stock.
The main piece is a square of water color paper with the Impression Obsession Leaf Square Stamp stamped using StazOn timber brown ink.
I colored the piece with Derwent Inktense pencils and floated the color with a water color brush.
Wanting the square to look like a window I floated the brown around it and let it dry completely.
The main piece was taped onto the card front and I stamped the verse from Impression Obsession's CL406 We Gather Together set using the StazOn ink.

Not much stamping...

Though sometimes you don't need too much!
The base card is white card stock with the front embossed using my BigKick and WeR Memory Keepers quilt folder.
*IMPORTANT - when using your BigKick and any of the square WeR folder you do this sandwich...leave the base as you wold for die cutting a thin lit, place your card stock in your folder, place 1(one) plate on top and run it through)
As per the sketch I cut the brown card stock with a layer of the leaf patterned paper and glued them to the card front.
I cut a strip of brown vellum and stamped the verse from MFT Stamps "harvest mouse" using Versamark ink, applied white embossing powder and heat set it.
I trimmed the strip and corner rounded the edges before gluing it to the inside of the top of the card, I thought it would look neater.
To finish I applied three white Nuvo drops.

Feels like pumpkin spice...

This is a single layer card of water color paper.
The girl is from Unity Stamp Company's "brystl girl" and she was tamped with StazOn timber brown ink.
The verse from Unity Stamp Company's "...bountiful owl" was stamped with the same ink.
The coloring was done with Artist's loft and Staedtler water Color pencils, because I didn't have full sets of either for colors I needed.
I just am so thrilled to be using these water colors.

Big flower...

I went to a Stampin' Up sale yesterday of retired stamps and couldn't find one I wanted.
But over on a table of scrap booking supplies I found a Close To My Heart set of foam backed rubber stamps.
I figured if it wasn't too much I could add it to my granddaughter's bin.
It was only $2.00 so I bought it.
Then this challenge came along and I thought it would work perfectly...

The base card is water color paper.
The main piece is 3"x 3" water color paper that I stamped one of the flowers from the set using Distress ink antique linen.
Using Lyra watercolor crayons I colored the flower and using my water color brush I floated the colors.
Once it was dry I stamped the verse from Impression Obsessions "In A Garden" set using StazOn timber brown ink.
To finish I taped the square top the base card.
