New Die Release - Autumn Card

Hello!!  It's Wanda here today sharing a card for this week of New Die Release ideas!!  

I've chosen Autumn from the 4 Seasons set of dies...

and I've combined it with the quote from this set.

I began with a piece of Mixed Media Cardstock (Ranger), a leaves stencil (The Crafter's Workshop), and Distress Inks - Abandoned Coral, Fossilized Amber, Barn Door.  I used an ink blending tool to add color through the stencil onto the paper and removed the stencil.  Then I put some Abandoned Coral on my craft sheet, picked up color with a water brush, and flicked it onto the panel.  The quote was stamped with Archival Ink Jet Black.  I wanted to "fade" the leaves a bit where the quote was so I brushed on water in that area, blotted it up and dried the paper.  Autumn was cut from black cardstock and glued to the panel.  The edges were distressed and the panel was layered to a red panel and then to a folded white card.  I colored a scrap of Mixed Media Paper with Abandoned Coral and Fossilized Amber using a water brush, dried it, die cut the leaf (Elizabeth Craft Designs) from that scrap, shaped the leaf using the Susan's Garden Tool Set, Molding Mat, and Leaf Pad (Elizabeth Craft Designs) and attached it as shown below the word Autumn.  

I hope you're enjoying this week of ideas!!



  1. very pretty and love the colors... Have a great day

  2. So pretty. I always love fall, especially during the three years I spent in Maine. Beaufiful card. Can we bypass summer and make it Fall?

    1. Thank you, Nancy!!! I do like fall but to skip summer would bring winter sooner so I'm good with some summer too. LOL

    2. Even though I really don't want to think about fall now, I must take my hat off to you, as this card is really pretty:)
