My Favorite time of year

Fall is my most favorite time of the year!!  It's probably because it follows summer which is my least favorite!  And, that is only because it gets so warm in the summer months and I am more of a cool weather person.

Actually, I love all the seasons of the year for their own differences.

But, Fall being my FAVORITE, I tend to make more cards at this time of year than any other.

This card was FUN to make.  First, I made the leaves using watercolor paper, re-inkers and SU Aqua Painters.

After the paper dried, I then used the Vintage Leaves to stamp my leaves and the Leaflits Framelits to die cut them.  On the larger leaf, I stamped a tree from the stamp set, Sheltering Tree to give it a 'veiny' look.  (if that's a word)
I used the Woodland embossing folder and lightly brayered Soft Suede ink onto the trunks of the trees...making sure I brayered the 'raised' side.  Then, I ran it through my Big Shot.   I stamped the smaller leaves from the set "Among the Branches" in a combination of Soft Suede and one of the greens....sorry, I didn't take note when I did that.....something I am really bad about doing, sometimes.

I'll be sharing more Fall cards in the upcoming days although I am already working on Christmas cards.....weird, huh?  But, my Christmas class is this Thursday because my customers wanted to get an early start on them.

Thanks for stopping by!!!  And, if you would be so kinds as to leave a comment so that I know you were here, I would appreciate it so much!

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!  

Have a great day!!
