Hello Fall! {funky, colorful clean and simple autumn cards!}

 HELLO FALL! Today I have some slightly weird but super fun (in my humble opinion) autumn cards to share with you. I am absolutely SMITTEN with this stamp set, called Hello Fall.  Every single card I've seen created with it, is just fantastic. The texture on the stamp is amazing, and lends itself to fun inky techniques. But for today - I kept it simple. Just straight up stamping . . .except I used some slightly quirky colors for my autumn leaves to give these cards a fun personality.
I followed the same basic layout for each of these cards, but I chose a different leaf and a different sentiment for each. Then I played around with fun printed gold washi tape, and splatters of Gold Silk.  

 SO, friends....here's your challenge, should you choose to accept it - create a card using some unexpected colors. Give your creation a funky flair! And then, share a link with me in the comments because I'd LOVE to come and see your creation!

Supplies used on today's projects:
Inks: Sweet Berry, Pretty Pansy, Turbo Teal

Laura,
I love these cards! I think the different colors on these leaves is a great idea, esp. for those like me in Florida who never see leaves change colors in the typical way. I don't have the gold washi tape, but I am thinking maybe I can gold emboss the stamps from the Tape It set and get a similar effect. I am always looking for ideas for that set. As always, thanks for the inspiration.

BETTY that's an AWESOME idea!!!! I've never thought to emboss the Tape It stamps, but you're exactly right - it would give a similar look, and it would be FABULOUS!!! (I totally want to go emboss with that stamp set now!!! YAY!)
