Simon Says Stamp Autumn Leaves Challenge

Hi everyone!

Welcome to another Simon Says Stamp Challenge!!!


Today's challenge is one that 'warms' my heart: Autumn Leaves! I LOVE Fall. It's my favourite season of the year. It's time to get cozy, put on a sweater, and drink some tea or hot apple cider. Mmmm.

Here`s my card for this week's challenge:


I opened up my Mister Huey's and dabbed some on my craft sheet and from there painted the leaf. I was impressed with just how opaque the paint was on the kraft cardstock and also how well the colors blended. I'll definitely be doing this again!

Here's what I used to make this card:


I hope you'll join us for this week's challenge! Up for grabs is a $50 gift voucher for the Simon Says Stamp store thanks to sweet Heidi! For all the details and to see what the other designers have come up with go HERE.



Thanks so much for stopping by!
Sarah

Your words about fall are exactly how I feel about it, too! Aren't we lucky to live where we can enjoy this wonderful season? LOVE your take on this challenge - what a fun stamp!

Sarah, this is fab! You colored that with a spray mist?! WOW. And I love the bit of sponging on the edges for dimension. And I love hot apple cider, too. LOL :)

Absolutely stunning! The colours absolutely glow with late autumn sunshine - and I love it on the kraft background. I'd been wondering whether I really liked the blueprint stamps - well, now I know!!
