Hello, Although we don’t quite have Autumn here in Florida and the temps are still in the 90’s, it didn’t stop me from making a couple of Autumn theme cards over the weekend. One is made of the colors you would traditionally expect, and the other one …not so much. I love how they both turned out!
I am linking up these cards to two different challenges. The first one is The Twofer Card Challenge which I am totally thrilled not to miss out on this month, and the other one is The Color Throwdown, which I have been following since its inception.
The stamps I used for these cards are from Verve, with an exception of the larger leaf on the autumn colored card, who knows where that one came from, but it’s a keeper. On both cards, I heat embossed the leaves with either white, silver, gold or red. On the fall colored card, I used my oxide inks to blend the background. The leaf punch is from SU and dry embossed, and the tag and wonky rectangles are from MFT. I splattered some white paint to help hide some of my stray embossing powder on the black card. Finally, I got to use my new Rectangles with the rounded corners from MFT. I just love those patterned leaves from Verve, and I knew they would make a fun fall card. The black card is so very shimmery in real life! If you have any other questions…let me know!
Hope you have a really awesome week! Nanc’
