Autumn cards with video tutorial

Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about Autumn. As this season is just began, the colors are changing and can be your inspiration.

Autumn has already started a month ago and the leaves are beginning to change color slowly. I start to appreciate these colors more and more, but the cooler temperature I don't like very much, as well as the shorter days and longer nights. But the color palette is growing on me, which is why I chose these fall colors for this challenge.

For the background I've used the Media Leaves Masks and I made sprays of Distress Reinkers and Perfect Pearls. After spraying, I've dabbed off the background and used another piece of cardstock to pick up the excess spray and keeping the same composition.


The Celebration Words (thanks, Cathie!) I've inked up with Versamark ink and embossed them with Pewter Embossing Powder. With the Versamark pen I did some touch ups. This time I've used Walnut Stain Distress Crayon for the edges. Gives it a different look and kept it more autumnal.



To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers.

How great to see a pair of amazing Autumn cards! I love how they share a color palette, but each one has its own bit of personality. You used both the positive and negative space so well and I loved how they evoked FALL!!
