A second quick post. This is for the Clean and Simple Stamping Challenge.

I made this card on Sunday but hummed and hawed about it. I am not happy with the way the sentiment stamped but love how the leaves turned out. I think I missed the whole color challenge part of this though.

I wanted the sentiment to be darker, and on my test stamp it was. Dumb me though, I put the card together before stamping the sentiment. I sooo know better :P.

I cut these leave with my Sure Cuts A Lot software and my Cricut, found out today they had a conflict and SCAL's new versions are no longer compatible with Cricut, boy am I glad I already brought the software before that happened.

I also used a new embossing folder from Craft Concepts-Garden of Trees. Love Love Love it.

Supplies: Cream and pumpkin cardstock, Designer Paper-Recollections, Hero Arts-Autumn, Leave die-cuts, Craft Concepts-Garden of Trees.

I am off to watch Combat Hospital, night all.



  1. Wow, the embossing is wonderful, and your fall touches inspiring Sister. You keep me hopping with all kinds of ideas.

    The sentiment thing - ha! I've done that I don't know how many times. Suppose it runs in the family?

    Love you,

  2. I have bypassed this sketch as I am sure I could not do it justice but you have managed very well! A very pretty card!!

  3. I actually like the muted sentiment! Sometimes I feel my dark sentiments over power my cards. Great fall card! Thanks for dropping by my blog again and leaving kind words. Best, Yvonne

  4. I too LOVE your embossing and Fall elements!!Your sentiment is just right too...So COOL! I am really beginning to like clean and simple!!:)

    I spent a couple of days using Christy's Cuttlebug machine to emboss things for my cards..then didn't use ONE of them for the card I did today.LOL
