Autumn Days

Autumn Days is a brand new set in the upcoming SU! catalog that goes live on July 1st. This set didn't make my heart sing when I saw it on the preorder page, but now that I have it in my hands I've taken a real liking to it.

Those of you who know me know that I am not a big fan of the color orange, so you'll understand why these cards, especially the middle two, were a bit of a stretch for me. Still, this isn't just ANY orange -- it's Dusty Durango, one of the new In Colors for 2009-2010. I combined it with Crushed Curry (another new In Color) and Chocolate Chip on three of these cards. I chose Chocolate Chip because it coordinates with the Chocolate Chip Autumn Harvest rub-ons I also used. However, on the third card I used the new In Color Soft Suede. Why? Because I could. *grin* Seriously, my brain has a hard time wrapping itself around Chocolate Chip and Soft Suede being on the same card. Of course, no telling how I'll feel about that a year from now!

i love those "twig" and wheat stamps. i can't wait to get those in my grubby little paws. and your cards are gorgeous, even though you used orange. sometimes colors we hate work to our advantage, so we keep them around! and a SQUARE card??!! now try and find a single envelope! then send me two!.

i love them! and, yeah, i can see how to use the *brown* rubons, but still...i think they should make more black and white, not nec. chocolate chip and white...but i won't be too fussy...these are great cards! you did great with the orange (i know, i am not a big orange fan either). Good job!

Also, thanks for the comment on my blog about the Pink Famingo dsp! I should have known it wasn't retiring, but alas! every single dsp that I love seems to retire so I guess I assumed as much with this one!! :-)
