(Red, Olive & Green)

"Father Christmas"

For this card I used JFF's new Folk Art Santa E3451, Large Snow Pine G3437 & "Merry Christmas" sentiment. All are stamped using Memento's Tuxedo Black ink, and are highlighted using Color Snap's Smooch ink: Siren, Green Apple, Moonlight, Silver Fox & Azure; Copic markers: E01 Pink Flamingo& E29 Burnt Umber.
For the snow and Santa's hat I used "Snow White" Fun Flock.
Spellbinder's dies are: S4-254 Big Scalloped Square--small, S4-144 Long Classic Rectnagles--small & S3-148 Tags Trio.
Paper, ribbon & brads are all from my stash.

(Orange, Olive & Rust)

"Corn Stalks & Pumpkins"

To start, card base is MME "Wild Asparagus" Noel Stripe. Solid cardstock is TPC Terracotta, Olive & Paprika.

I decided to make a collage, using my Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad and my JFF stamps: G3435 Corn Field, A3443 Standing Blackbird, D3419 Pumpkin Patch, A3422 Mini Tall Pumpkin, A3423 Mini Squat Pumpkin, AA3442 Eating Blackbird & B3428 Happy Autumn (saying). I then colored the images using a blending pen and ink pads. Pumpkin vines are highlighted with CS Smooch-Green Apple.

All edges are of course chalked with CB Chestnut Roan. Accents are eyelets and hemp from my stash.

When we were in San Diego we went to the Museum of Art.....and they had a whole gallery of Tolousse-Latrec's poster (paintings).

Does this look familiar? Just For Fun has a stamp of this. I used it for challenge #13 (Moulin Rouge).
