Autumn Leaves

It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper (FS503) challenge over on Splitcoast. A big congrats to Penni, the newest FS! I chose THIS to case because I really liked the colors. So I kept the colors, but used a water color background instead of designer paper & changed it from a birthday card to a fall card.autumn-leaves-img0493
The w/c bg was made by lightly misting the w/c paper, sprinkling the Brushos, then misting again, a little more heavily. When dry, I die cut the whole panel w/ a large rectangle then die cut the Reverse Leaves die down the side. I lined this panel up on a die cut orange panel & put the leaves die back in place to cut through the orange panel. I wanted the leaf detail to show up when I put the orange leaves back in place. A stacked die cut Autumn was added & the other half of the greeting was stamped below it. One stamped maple leaf was fussy cut & 2 orange leaves added.

Here’s a look at the inside.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

  1. This is a really stunning card. You did an awesome job with the Brushos–not muddy at all.

    Love how you cut the leaves out of the card front.

    Beautiful all around.

  2. This is beautiful! Love how you used the Serendipity Leaves Reverse Die – leaving the little openings to show the brick color behind and then using the leaves elsewhere! You make the brushos sound so easy to use!
