Bloggers Challenge - Alter It

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! This week I gave the players the theme - Alter It, it's always fun to see what they come up with to alter. My DH has been after me for quite a few weeks to change the stamped art I have framed in my Stamp Room. The three frames had summer images and have been up for a few years, so I decided to swap them out for some fall images.

I still have some of these frames left over in my alterable bin - bought them at the Target Dollar Spot a few years back, and they are the perfect size to fit on the small long wall in my Stamp Room (photo on left).
Here's larger views of each piece with details - note I stamped each mat the same using the Multi Step Big Leaves from Kitchen Sink Stamps as follows:


Maple Leaf : #1 Memento Dandelion, #2 Memento Cantaloupe, #3 Memento Desert Sand, #4 Memento Cocoa.

Oak Leaf: #1 Memento Pear Tart, #2 Memento Bamboo Leaves, #3 Memento Potters Clay

Pear Leaf: #1 Memento Dandelion, #2 Memento Tangelo, #3 Memento Ladybug, #3 Memento Rhubarb

Fern Leaf: #1 Memento Sprout, #2 Memento Ivy, #3 Memento Cocoa

Then I sponged the mat edges with Stampin' Up!'s Soft Suede



The other images used on this piece are the 3 Step Autumn Squirrel stamped on White card stock (#3 Memento Black, #2 Memento Cocoa, #1 Memento Desert Sand), the small leaves are from Multi Step Owl and Autumn Moon (#1 Memento Dandelion, Memento Tangelo, #2 Memento Cottage Ivy, Memento Cocoa). The panel behind the stamped image is done with the Torn Frames Technique.






The Multi Step Tree is stamped on White card stock as follows: #1 Memento Dandelion, #2 Memento Pear Tart, #3 Memento Bamboo Leaves, #4 Memento Cocoa.


This beautiful basket of mums comes from the Multi Step Harvest Set, stamped on White card stock as follows:
Flowers: #3 Memento Cottage Ivy, #2 Memento Pear Tart, #4 Memento Rhubarb, #5 Memento Rhubarb, #1 Memento Dandelion.
Basket: #1 Memento Desert Sand, #2 Memento Cocoa, #3 Memento Cocoa, #4 Memento Black. The Chocolate Panel behind the image is done with the Torn Frames Technique, then layered on a piece of Pumpkin Pie.
