Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

With Gratitude…


Hello, It may not feel like fall in my neck of the woods quite yet…or ever…LOL, but it didn’t stop me from getting out my fall decorations today along with my favorite fall leaves from SU to make a card. Before I got to work, I needed to go find some challenge blogs to play along with.  I sometimes feel like a challenge blog addict. LOL If I was retired I think I would start another one myself!  The two I am joining today are The Paper Players Tic Tac Toe Challenge, where I have chosen the row going down (FALL, ORANGE, and LEAVES) and Happy Little Stampers (ANYTHING GOES WITH DIES.) Hold onto your hats folks…..I am about to say something a bit rare!! I am extremely happy with the way this card came out.  In fact, so happy that I made two of them, and one I will be sharing later next month with a JUGS challenge.

Card details: SU-cardstock, sentiment, and leaves. I did the watercolor smooshing technique for the leaves. Then did the outline in gold to match the embossed sentiment. I distressed my kraft cardstock with some oxide ink. MFT-banner die and Mod Rectangles. Gold Nuvo drops to finish it off!

So happy you stopped by, Have a creative week! Nanc’

  4. Gorgeous all the way around, Nancy, including how you staged the photo. Those smooshed leaves with gold veins are wonderful. If/when you start a challenge, keep me in mind for your DT. 😉 I had an idea for one but now I can’t remember what it was.

  5. Such a pretty fall card, Nancy! I love the leaf die cuts. I’m going to have to read up on the the watercolor smooshing technique…I LOVE the way these leaves look! Thank you for sharing with The Paper Players!
