Autumn Leaves

I created this card for 2 challenges. The Ready, Steady, Stamp #7 Challenge blog was to use brown, cream and yellow ochre
distress inks on the background, you can find the tutorial on how to do this
on their blog
I also used the fun sketch at Midnight Madness Challenge Sketch #22. I created the panel using the distress ink technique on a glossy panel. I then embossed the leaves by StampinUp. I added the canvas and stapled it. I ran the background panels through the Leafy Branch Cuttlebug folder. I fastened that onto a yellow ochre pannel. I then added the leaves by Dress it Up. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hello Julia - I love your blog name! LOL! Great card - the colours are perfect for the stamps and embossing folder you have used. That canvas is great too - very effective! Well done on both challenges! Thanks for playing the MMSC Sketch Challenge this week and we look forward to seeing you again next week. Be sure to check back for the Blog Hop on October 16 with 25 amazing prizes to be won!
