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’

My Favorite Fall Leaves


Second Post of the Day! Both for Freshly Made Sketches!

Since it was the first day of Fall on the Starbucks calendar that is, I went and got myself the first Pumpkin Latte of the season yesterday. YUM!!  When I got back, I decided why not make a fall birthday card using my all-time favorite leaf dies from SU. I did the watercolor smooshing technique for my fall leaves. The background is a script SU embossing folder that I put ink on with a sponge dauber after I embossed it.  I wanted more of a worn look. The victorian scalloped border and outline of the leaves were made with gold paper that doesn’t pick up well in the photo. The sentiment is from Gina K. The larger white rectangle also has the EF script on it but doesn’t show up in the photo either. I last decided to cover the stems of my leaves with the sentiment panel…it almost looks like a pocket.

Linking up again with Freshly Made Sketches! 

Here in Florida we are patiently waiting for Dorian to make the projected right turn.  I pray he spares all of the U.S.

Take care,  Nanc’
