SUO Challenge #183~~~"Autumn Colours"

For this card I used a brand new set from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue called "Count My Blessings".
I stamped the three acorn images off twice with Soft Suede ink and then coloured them with my Aqua painter.
I used the Wood Textured embossing folder to give interest to the brown cardstock.
I punched two small ovals and mounted the sentiment. Linen thread finishes it off.

Apple Harvest

SUO Challenge #183~~~"Autumn Colours"

My second entry for this challenge had me dig up yet another set from years ago called "Countryside".
First I stamped the truck in a light grey ink. For the background, I masked off the truck and used one of the tree stamps from "Lovely as a Tree".
I then used my aqua painter to colour the images. The DSP is from years ago as well.
To add interest and texture, I used linen thread and enamel dots to finish this project off.
Love that SU Stamp sets, like the two I used on this card, are timeless.

Autumn Pear Harvest

SUO Challenge #183~~"Autumn Colours"

For this card I dug out an old set I have not used for years called "Always Thankful".
I then remembered this DSP from years ago that would marry nicely with my design.
I used an aqua painter to colour the image and used my brand new roll of burlap ribbon to complete that rustic feel.
For the decorative edge on the sentiment, I used a square scalloped framelit and then trimmed little strips.


This card was done for the Mod Squad Challenge Blog.
This week's challenge was to use heat embossing on your card, other than the sentiment.
I created the floral background paper by stamping a co ordinating stamp in this set by Power Poppy with Versamark and then heat embossing with red embossing powder.
I then used an aqua painter brush to colour the image.

Power Poppy ~~ Power and Spark Challenge "Mix and Match" Aug/17

For this card I used two different stamp sets. One set had the Eiffel Tower and sentiment and the other set had the Vespa girl image.
