Ready for Fall?

The weather is cooling down and some of the trees are beginning their color changes.......  I took the color inspiration for my Sweet Stamps card for our monthly Anything Goes challenge.

  For my Fall Colors, I used Shades Dye inks (cube/spots) Tank, Butterscotch, Rustic and Brownie. The image is from set Leaves AF4622 and was stamped in Brownie and Tank. I used a dauber to add colors on the card. I added a torn color corner using SU Rust and Olive (retired) cardstock. I used Flourishes AF4609 on the rust using Versamark just to add a little interest. The sentiment is from SS4406 Framed Handwritten Words.

 I stamped and fussy cut out a few more leaves and added some twine to finish off the corner.

Shelly, this is beautiful!! I started my serious stamping in the fall many years ago, in a monthly club. We made a card featuring autumn leaves...this brings back fun memories!

Donna said...

This is gorgeous Shelly. Love the fall colors. I like that you stamped the leaves in the background and then used them as embellishments. They look so lifelike. Have a great week!

What a lovely card Shelly - love how you have stamped the leaves over the background, and then used 'solid' leaves for the corner bunch. The torn corner layers are a fabulous touch.
Maxine said...

This card is stunning! I love the softness of the colors on the leaves. Fall is by far my favorite season!

Beth Norman-Roberts said...

Wow, Shelly, this is so pretty. Your technique really speaks to me with your autumn card.

Simply beautiful! Just love those fall colors! I love paper tearing also and, sadly, not a lot of people do that on their cards these days. Glad to see you're bringing it back.

This card ... i love everything about it. Looks very similar in style to the one I recently posted. It looks like we both love muted autumn shades and textures. Skeletal leaves are one of my favs!
