Hello Fall

I have been playing around with pages from a very old book and made these leaves last week but was waiting for the perfect opportunity to use them. Don’t want to rush the season.

I saw this one of Loll’s and loved it:;ppuser=287186

I glued the book’s page to some card stock and die cut with Tim Holtz “tattered leaves” by Sizzix. I sponged with Distress inks and added a button from my stash. I used the corner chomper to soften the bottom edges.

Easing into FALL!

The flower is Sizzix/Hero Arts stamp & die cut set

CC389 Bravo Regal Starfruit 
Designer Paper is from DCWV “Green Tea” stack.
The stamped image, sentiment and sentiment label
are from the SU “Just Believe” cling set. 

SCS Sketch Challenge 399 
I used Spellbinders' square and label dies 
for masks using both negative and positive. 
I used the square mask over the blank
panel to first stamp the image with 

Versamark and heat emboss with clear powder.
 I then used the label to mask a section for the sentiment
to stamp and sponge after the main panel.

The sentiment is Verve

 The Pumpkins are Stampabilities’ “Fall Holidays” clear stamp set, 
The fall spray is a Santa Rosa “Acorns & Wheat” wood mount, 
the sentiment is Verve’s Happy Fall set.
