Stitched Leaves

Hello everyone!  Today we are having another Stamp Off Challenge with Buffy, Jackie and me.  This time our challenge was to make a Fall card.  As a side note, our challenge was originally to make a Halloween card but after going through all my current stamp sets, I realized I don’t have any new Halloween cards!  How can that be?

In any case, here is my Fall card.

I decided to make another slimline card for this challenge.  I just love these cards and they are not hard to make at all.  My card is 3.5″ x 8.5″.  You can make them any size you want.  I have seen some that are 3.25″ x 8″ and others that are 3″ x 8″.  It doesn’t really matter.  Really it comes down to how much room you need for your design.  I also found a tutorial on YouTube on how to make an envelope for a 3.5″ x 8.5″ card so I went with that.

This card was fairly simple to make.  I first cut out the leaves in Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Cherry Cobbler (all “C” colors!) using the new Stitched Leaves dies.  Then I cut out three squares using the Stitched Shapes dies in Garden Green cardstock.  I layered these all together and then added the sentiment.

I do have a small disclaimer.   As you know, I recently moved to Tennessee and I am not totally unpacked yet.  My craft room is a disaster.  In my old house, my craft room was in the basement so it did not really matter what it looked like.  I bought a couple of plastic fold up tables from Sam’s Club and used them.  I had a mish mash of ink pad holders, marker holders, etc.  In my new house, my craft room is in the family room (yay for having windows!!).  The fold up, stained and chipped tables looked horrible up there so I decided to buy new furniture for my new craft room.  Well, the new furniture arrived on Monday and I have been frantically trying to put things in place.  I am probably 75% done.  Why am I telling you this?  Because I can not find whatever stamp set I used for the sentiment on this card.  I am pretty sure it is current (although not positive but I don’t usually use retired stamps on my blog) but right now it is no where to be found.  So I apologize that I can not tell you its name.  PS:  Thanks to a friend, the stamp is from a stamp set called Quite Curvy that will be available for customers to purchase beginning on November 3rd.  Check back here for details on November 2nd).

Now, let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie made with a Fall (or Halloween) theme.  I am sure they will be gorgeous! 

Tomorrow is the last day to take advantage of 15% off Designer Series Paper!  Don’t miss out on this fantastic deal!

  1. Boy Susan, this is lovely. I like the fact that you made a slimline card. The colors are wonderful together. The leaves are “so fall”!
