It's beginning to look...

a lot like fall in these parts!  It seems like the leaves turn color overnight!  So that, along with a new shipment of stamp sets from Jane's Doodles, which included a set of lovely fall leaves with a Thanksgiving theme, made me want to make some fall cards!
I began by stamping a sheet of watercolor paper with an indistinct text stamp and heat embossed with clear ink.  Then I stamped the leaves all over and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder.  Next, I randomly and loosely painted fall colors on and around the leaves letting the water do the magic with blending the colors.
Once the paper was dry, I cut it in half diagonally and created these cards with the painted paper and some matching patterned paper.

I also stamped each of the leaves on a variety of colored card stocks, enhanced them with some similar colors of Copic markers and cut them out.  They make lovely little embellishments for cards or scrapbook layouts and I know I'll be using them a lot!


Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
