Fall Gratitude

 Time for another fun challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique!  The new challenge is called Fall Gratitude and here is how Teri describes the challenge: 

" I love the concept of Gratitude and being Thankful. Use fall colors and embellishments to create a tag or project expressing gratitude."

I have to admit I have a fondness for the fall and the colors, crisp air and beautiful weather.  Anytime I can stamp, die cut or play with leaf embellishments the art seems to create itself.  I decided to add the sentiment of light the way to show my appreciation to someone who has provided me many inspiration and lights the way for me every day!

I started with a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of white cardstock.  I pulled out a few stencils and used texture crackle paste to stencil on leaves in the background.  While it was still wet I applied the Distress Stain Sprays.

That background paper got lots of use in die cutting extra pieces and stamping my sentiment. I also have a second card base created with the remainder.

I have been getting a lot of use out of my seasonal mica sprays from Ranger I coated all the flowers and background with a few other sprays thrown in. 

Please come join us in the challenge!  There is an opportunity to win a gift card at the Funkie Junkie which always has great deals on a variety of products!  

Thanks for stopping by! 




  1. Oh Suzz I love every single part of this piece from that scrumptious background to the seasonal cluster on the front, all enhanced perfectly with the mica xx

  2. Your background is amazing, Suzz! Love that crackling texture along with the layers rich fall color and shimmer. It's all topped off with a gorgeous autumnal spray of florals and foliage. As always, I'm so inspired!

  3. Wow that backdrop is gorgeous! Love all the crisp fall colors and the rich colors of the flowers.
