Simply Sunday Challenge - Happy Fall Y'all!!

Happy Sunday!! I hope you are having a great weekend!! It's time for another Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky, and I'm sad to announce it will be the last SS Challenge. There will be some exciting changes at Getting Cricky in the next few weeks so stay tuned :) The theme for the final challenge is Happy Fall Y'all.


The base of this card is a Spellbinders Grand Square. The background is a Crafter's Workshop Aspen Trees stencil, inked with Vintage Photo and Walnut Distress Inks.


The leaves are Spellbinders Nested Maple Leaves dies, embossed with the Swirls embossing Folder and inked with Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade Distress inks.


The large leaf was embossed with Swirls and then inked with Walnut Distress Ink. It was then run through the Grand Calibur again without the embossing folder to flatten the image so the stamp would stamp smoothly. The stamps are from K Andrew Designs Fall-O-Ween:


I am entering this in the DL.Art 1,000 Post Linky Party.


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Getting Cricky to see the amazing projects my Design Team sisters have created for today's challenge, then link up your Happy Fall Y'all projects!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

This is so amazing, Lisa! The richness of the colors is breathtaking. Thank you so much for explaining how you stamped on the embossed leaf. I have always wondered what is the best way to do that - and now I know, thanks to you! I'm sad that this is our last SS Challenge, but I have really loved being on the DT with you these past few months. You are so awesome & such an inspiration to me.

So, so pretty and such gorgeous fall colors! The stencil you used is just amazing, what a beautiful background you created. Love all the embossed leaves and pretty layers. Really puts me in the mood for fall!

Kate said...

Wow Absolutely Stunning. I feel like that is all I tell you but I can't help it. Your cards and creations are just Gorgeous each and every time I see it my friend. Love the little embossed leaves. Hope your enjoying your 3 day weekend.

Karen said...

My sweetest friend, this is warm-fuzzy inducing! It so beautifully showcases the stunning season of Autumn. :o) The background is gorgeous and I love the bazillion base layers in festive colors. And of course the LEAVES! They are gorgeous. The embossing and inking are such lovely touches. It was so smart of you to flatten the embossing to stamp, so it still has the pretty design. :o) Beautiful ribbon and I love the sparkly flourish atop it. **dreamy sigh** How I adore Autumn and Winter creations! Magnificent work as always, my talented friend! I hope you're having a twinkly night! :o)

Hugs and blessings!
