Dare to Fall for Colour

We bring to you all the great ways to bring so many colours to your fall projects.


Distress paints, stains and ink by  Tim Holtz and Ranger, Ken Oliver colour bursts all found their way into our projects, and Sizzix and Spellbinders had all the dies to compliment our paper projects for exquisite colour and detail accents.


Karon's, Hello Thursday - Autumn Pumkins, was perfect card went straight to "Pete's Place", the pumpkin patch stamp. I love her use of colours, dies and of course the Emerald Creek Pine Cone Charms, all inked up to coordinate.




Diana hits home with Fall, by using the "Get Lost" stamp by Emerald Creek (seriously why do I even have a stamp like this) and she takes it to a fun fall piece of art



Julia is always surprising me because I never know what she will make, (cards, art, tags) today she brings us Fall-ing with ink, Feather Charms, Burnt Copper Leaves Embossing Powder, Leaf and Maple Leaf Stamps



Cathy's "Welcome Fall" piece is so fun. I love the colours, I love the scrabble pieces. this piece is sure to spark your creativity and get your fall and holiday project ideas flowing.




Please enter your creation to win. Happy creating!

Congratulations to Tracy Evans winner of the 80"s Dare with her totally awesome use of colour.

Please email Kim at Emerald Creek For your Prize Code

Winner of the Triple Take Dare

Congratulations to Tammy!


Tammy used Washi Tape as her "tripled" items and I was thrilled because I don't (didn't now) use washi tape hardly ever. She created an awesome bookmark, taught me how to get fonts and script on to washi tape, and made a cute tassel too, yep it was washi tape again.
