Happy Fall

I was looking through blogland and saw Barb and Donna had created some beautiful entries for the CAS-ology Challenge #14.  CAS is a good challenge for me to try. :)

 This was my third attempt using my spray of leaves in a design. :)  I started with stamping the Hero Arts leaf three times using brown archival ink.  I smeared STAEDTLER Karat Pastel Chalks in the centers of my leaves.  I used a sponge to smear them together and around the edges.  I spritzed the surface with Goose Bumps and waited for that to dry.  I then smeared the yellow pastels over the surface to add the hint of yellow.

I then cut it into the shape of a tag and layered it onto the white cardstock. Added the embossing and sentiment from Memory Box.

It is hard not to add more to the background but I like a good challenge.

Have a happy Saturday and don't worry I have a very complex and multi-layered project for tonight's SSSS post! :)



  1. Beautiful card Sue!! I have ordered this leaf stamp it is a must!

  2. I love this, Suzz! The tag looks wonderful with your gorgeous leaves! And thanks so much for the mention! :)

  3. very pretty Sue, gorgeous coloured leaves and I do like the way you've attached the tag with the button and string.

  5. It's a beautiful tag-card! Love your technique; it makes the leaves glow!

  6. Your leaves are beautiful Sue and using them in this way allows them to be seen in their full glory. I like the novel way of attaching the tag and also the texture from the Goosebumps. I bought some of this over a year ago and still haven't used it. I think you might have given me the push to have a play with it ;-)
