Fall Cards

Hello Everyone

It has been about a week since I posted any cards. This past weekend was super busy and I didn't have much of a chance to make many cards. On Sunday evening, I finally found the time to make a few cards for the Hero Arts challenge. My first card is an inspiration on Barb’s card that was featured on Hero Arts on Monday, September 20th. I used the same inks and the same design, but used different stamps, ribbon, and paper. I used perfect pearls on the cut out leaves, but it is hard to see on camera. Stamps used for this card are: Woodland Oak Leaves E3181 (see note), Real Leaves CL457 and Essential Messages CL371.

For this card the following stamps were used: K5431 and raindrop background S5101. I colored the flower with Copic markers and distressed the background with wild honey and with a small amount of rusty hinge. I also used Worn lipstick, wild honey, and scattered straw destressing ink. For this next card I used the following Stamps: Birthday Messages CL139, Engraved Fruit CL433, Antique Flower Background S5264 and Large Plaid Pattern S5447. The pears were stamped on a 3 x 3 ¼-inch panel with bundled sage distress ink and then masked so that I could distress the background in wild honey and rusty hinge distress ink. I then roughed up the edges of the paper and distressed with walnut stain ink.
For the pumpkin card I used the following stamps: traditional Pumpkin F5270, Tall Pumpkin G5269, Large Plaid Pattern S5447 and Birthday Messages CL139. The pumpkins were colored with Copic markers and the background was distressed in Broken China ink. The scalloped panel was stamped with the large plaid pattern stamp and embossed with white embossing powder.

Note: Woodland Oak Leaves E3181 I think is discontinued. All the stamps are Hero Arts.

Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate the comments. Have a wonderul day and God bless.

Loving all of you fall cards, Sue! The distressing on the first one is gorgeous! The 2nd one is classy and beautiful. The pears look so realistic and last but not least, I love the layering for the pumpkins! Thank you so much for your kind words. They mean a lot to me :)
