10 on the 10th: Autumn File

Hello, everyone!  Thanks for joining me today, for the next installment of my "Ten on the Tenth" destashing series.  In anticipation of all the "fall" products that are about to debut at CHA, I decided to try to use up some of my older autumn-themed stash.

I needed some thank you cards in early June, so I dipped into my stash of patterned kraft cardstock to make them.  Here's a thank you card with a big flower...

Project 1: patterned cardstock by Neenah Paper; floral paper & Bingo card by Simple Stories; paper leaves by Bo Bunny; stickers by Lily Bee; ink by Hero Arts; punch by Creative Memories; ribbon by Scrapbook Fantasies.

...and here's a cute graphic one.

Project 2: patterned cardstock by Neenah Paper; floral paper & tree sticker by Simple Stories; alphabet stickers by October Afternoon; punch by Creative Memories; thread by DMC.

The card below was for my son's gym teacher/basketball coach.

Project 3: patterned cardstock by Neenah Paper; label & flashcard by October Afternoon; alphabet stickers by Lily Bee; punch by Creative Memories; ink by Tsukineko; thread by DMC.

As long as I had the autumn-themed supplies out already, I decided to go ahead and make an autumn-themed card, as well.  :)

Project 4: patterned cardstock by Neenah Paper; patterned paper by October Afternoon; tag by Crate; ribbon by Berwick Offray; translucent stickers by FabScraps; navy alphabet stickers by Basic Grey; orange alphabet sticker, tree sticker, & word stickers by Bella Blvd; ink by Tsukineko; thread by DMC.

Then I went really wild and tried making a mixed media card on patterned kraft.  This cardstock stood up to the application of wet media quite well.  I am so pleased with how this card turned out; I'll definitely be trying something like this again soon!

Project 5: patterned kraft cardstock by Neenah Paper; patterned paper by Authentique; ribbon by Scrapbook Fantasies; stamps & ink by Hero Arts; all other inks, stains, & paint by Ranger; Aida cloth by Charles Craft.

Next I moved on to black cardstock, pairing it with gold for extra oomph.

Project 6: cardstock by Pioneer (from the album sleeve inserts); ribbon by Scrapbook Fantasies; pen by Ranger; ink by Tsukineko; stamp by Skull and Cross Buns.

I'm kind of in love with that hedgehog stamp, so I created another variation of this blank card.  It could work for any occasion, proving that black cardstock is not just for Halloween.

But, then again, black cardstock is great for a "spooky" scrapbook page.

Project 8: previously blogged here.

The funky B&W paper that forms the background of my next layout is from Witch Hazel, October Afternoon's Halloween collection.

I used some more Witch Hazel paper, as well as other autumnal products, in my tenth and last project.

Project 10: previously blogged here.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my ten destashing projects.  It has been a lot of fun to find creative uses for seasonal products.  



Wow! You are on a roll, Denise! Card #3 is my fave but they are all awesome projects. Thumbs Up to your destashing drive :)

Good for you to continue on in your de-stashing endeavors, Denise. I always love seeing your 10 on the 10th projects. I'd have to say the first card is my favorite with the pretty ribbon flower.
