Autumn Leaves

With the crazy weather we’ve been having here in New England (in the 70s three days ago and today we are barely in the 30s), it feels like the Fall has been pretty fleeting. Not much color on the trees, and some trees didn’t have much of a chance to put on a show before all the rain we’ve been having wiped out all of their leaves too soon! But, some of the Fall themed cards I’ve been making have at least helped me get into the spirit of Autumn, my favorite season.

This little card is inspired by the first card (by Dawn of Wplus9) in this post, andΒ  these cards made by Kara over at K and R Designs. I loved how both ladies mixed outline stamps with solid images, and I also loved their choice of color scheme, so I played around with that a bit myself. I used similar ink colors and images from both the Wplus9 Autumn Leaves stamp set and the Botanical Bunch stamp set.

I should also mention that I was inspired to purchase this stamp set because of the amazing things Natalia Valkovskaya creates with it! You can find a post of some beautiful cards she made here, but she also has a great instagram page.

The sentiment comes from the Brush Stroke Messages stamp set, and I added some detail around the edge of the panel by running the edges through my ink pad (which I believe was Lava Rock). Then, a few sequins to finish it off after mounting it to a smaller-than-4bar card base.
