Autumn Glory

Hi there!

I’m back with another card design for a CAS (clean and simple) sketch challenge at Splitcoast Stampers (CAS183). As I mentioned in my previous post (Fall Thank You), I’ve had fall on my mind this past week. The leaf in this design was die cut from metal and colored with alcohol inks. I took a close up photo to capture the coloring a bit better.  The band is a die cut with a Memory Box die and the sentiment came from a clear set. Unfortunately I do not know the manufacturer of this stamp set since I have long ago discarded the packaging. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Stay inspired,

  1. I've ordered an alcohol ink, my first, to see if I can get a leaf to look like yours. I bought the punches to make 4 different large leaves, a few years ago, about expensive!!!!! But the maple is the only one I like. I wouldn't have expected it would look good against the quatrafoil pattern, but it's perfect.

    Another dynamite card!
