Falling Into Fall ...

Smiley from millan.netEven though we have ALREADY had a little bit of snow, the colors outside are still SPECTACULAR! And, oddly enough, the weather is supposed to be nearly 70 degrees today and tomorrow!! Unbelievable!! It'll be back down to 50 degrees by this weekend, so I fully intend to enjoy the next few days ...

I did double duty on this card. Two challenges in one! TLC245 - Double Embossing and CC243 - Neutrals with a POP! I have to admit that it took me several attempts (like, FOUR!) to get the embossing background panel right. I kept forgetting steps and had a hard time tweaking the stacks that I put in my Big Shot in order to make this work. I also had to take MANY photos of this to get the embossing to even show up in them!! Sheesh!! What is up with THAT??

So, that's it for today ... enjoy the weather no matter where you are!!

Stamps: All Holidays, Autumn Flourish (by Flourishes)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard, Creamy Caramel, Really Rust, Old Olive
Accessories: Alpine felt chocolate chip ribbon, Sizzix Damask embossing folder, curved rectangles (mega) Nestabilities (S5-006), pop-up glue dots

AND SINCE I HAVE BEEN ASKED A COUPLE OF TIMES ... here is a link to the TLC (TLC245) over on SCS on how to do the blank or double embossing. Several people on the thread gave alternative ways that they made it work for them as well:
