SOS: Leaf it to me...

This week at Shopping Our Stash we are being encouraged to use a leaf  (or more) on our creations!

This is what I came up with:

Have to admit that this was tough in the way that I have lots of leafy stash and was not sure which direction I'd go...


  • Background made on scrap white cardstock
  • Inkadinkado leaf stamp inked with Tim Holtz embossing ink and heat embossed with Ranger Letter It in Copper Tinsel (I think I've only used it once before)
  • Colorbursts in fall colors used on the background
  • Sentiment written with Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers on a scrap of Canson Mix Media paper
  • The wooden bird was from Michael's a couple years ago. I coated it with crackle Distress paint many moons ago and decided it was time to use it here.
That's it!  Hope you like it.  For more inspiration, go visit my friends at Shopping Our Stash and join us!


  1. Awesome background, cool crackle bird, and just a lovely fall card!

  2. You chose a great direction. I like organic designs and this one is top of the heap! Great composition and well organized. Very nicely done!

  3. you are TOTALLY making me want to get out my CB's and lettering pens! (& maybe some crackle paint too!!!!!!) :)

  4. Ok, I've been meaning to get a set of Color Burst pigments for a while now but keep putting it off.....NOT ANY MORE!!!!! and I will get the CB in Autumn colors, I just adore how your panel looks with them and the embossed leaves are such a gorgeous and eye catching detail.
    Of course, your sweet bird looks also amazing and the sentiment just finishes this amazing Autumn card perfectly.

  5. Your background is so dreamy! Thanks for the fabulous close up, love the glittery leaves!
