I have entered this card in this week's Tuesday Trigger at [http://www.moxiefabworld.com/2013/10/tuesday-trigger-enthralled-with-fall.html]
I used a very old stamp here for the leaves and various distress inks on watercolour paper.
The stamp is E-1046 from PSX.
It was from a collection of stamps that my mother sent to me back in 2001. I like the veiny detail on the leaf.
I stamped the leaves close together and then cut out around the whole piece. Mounted them against a wood grain panel from Simon Says Stamp.
I added Wink of Stella to the edges of each leaf but it is kind of difficult to see in the photo.
The sentiment is from a BoBunny set called Apple Cider clear stamps (13205364).
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the day!

Well it is fast approaching the holiday season yet again. It seems like we haven't even finished with Halloween yet and it's time to move into the Christmas theme.
I created this card for the current challenge over at Hero Arts in the category of Merry and Bright. The idea is to create a card using neon colours.
I chose the HA tree stamp which I clear embossed using the Hero Arts cube neon inkers (which comes in a set of 4 colours).
Cut out the trees, popped dotted for extra dimension and added coordinating sequins.
The strips down the side are washi tape.
I appreciate you stopping by to have a look.

Today I am hosting my very first HA Flickr group scramble.
I went with a snowflake theme as so many of us our now in winter mode in this part of the globe. Fall is not quite behind us yet but soon the falling leaves will give way to beautiful white snowflakes.

I made this Fall card to celebrate World Card Making Day and also the arrival of Fall - my favorite time of year.
I used the Cuttlebug chicken wire embossing folder for the background to the leaves.
Cut out the shape with a Sizzix die.
The leaves were done using a Magenta stencil to which I added lots of watercolours using distress inks. The kraft cs panel was clear stamped using the HA Snow Dot background.
The letters are white chipboard stickers from Basic Grey which I added cup'o joe ink. I added a little extra by scratching the letters with a pin to give them a woodsy effect.
Added a sparkly button and some twine.
Hope you have a chance to create a card today to celebrate and thanks for stopping by.
