Autumn Blessings

Welcome to the
"Fall in Love with Stamping" theme week here at the bungalow.
One of the reasons I love stamps is because you can use them in so many ways!
I have been sharing cards and tags made with this month's super popular
Stamp of the Month.
Today I will show you how I used it on a layout and I chose unexpected colors for Fall.

I thought I would play around with some cool colors and tried the ombre technique here
I used Crystal Blue, Juniper and Lagoon. 
I love the way it turned out.
The papers are from a winter themed packet but you can see how versatile the patterns are other uses.
The banner at the top is a background paper from "Surf's Up", a summer themed paper.
The leaves are cut out of "Huntington", a paper packet with autumnal hues.
So I covered three seasons in one layout, lol.
I also used wood pieces from Sarita coordinating accents along with paper flowers
from Just Blooms Paper Shapes.
The blue flower centers are from Base and Bling Teal Jewels.
As soon as the leaves change colors I plan to take a photo of my bungalow to place right on the photo mat.
Happy Fall ya'll!
