Fall Means....Fallen Leaves!

Hello friends.
It's that time of the year...Fall.
I am blessed to live in a tree lot. However, our neighbor has two huge mature trees right at the border of the two houses. So when leaves fall, the leaf situation can get a little out of hand. 😐
I love everything about Fall... just not the leaf-raking part.
This stamp called Poetic is finally back in stock!
It is enough to cover the entire card front and has etched and detailed grooves.

Let's look at a leaf card now.

I love adding textures to my designs. It seems fitting to use Dreamweaver Wendi Vecchi Gold Embossing Paste along with TH WoodGrain Stencil. 

I love how the leaf itself turned out. I did some inking with Distress Oxide. Each time I stamped, I misted the stamp with a spritz of water.

thank you for being a great friend

I also stamped the background with Script. It's such a great stamp for background and adding details.
Of course, all this was stamped with the help of MISTI


Last but certainly not the least....
All the products used are highlighted in my affiliate links.

You can find the latest Penny Black stamps here.

I will be featuring Snowy Perch and Berry Speckled very soon.
Perhaps you will get them and we can stamp together?

Thank you for being my loyal stamping friends and followers.

Lovely card. I have admired this stamp for a long time. I think it is very versatile. I can imagine many colors for this regal leaf. I, too, have many leaves in the Fall. Fall is my favorite season, love the crisp weather and nothing is more lovely than trees changing color.

The stamps you showed especially the bird are wonderful. Penny Black has many unique stamps. Oh to be a millionaire!
