Best of Autumn Leaves, PPA175 & FMS107

Greetings, Stampers! Did I wear you out with all those specials and promotions yesterday? Well, minutes after I finished the post I found out that there were new products added to the Stampin' Up Clearance Rack yesterday, too. Seems like they have a new promotion almost every day! I can't keep up!

I am once again enjoying my new Best of Autumn stamp set today, using colors inspired by the Pals Paper Arts Challenge. I really love these colors! So classic and autumnal, but subdued. 

This simple layout was perfect for what I had in mind, courtesy of Freshly Made Sketches

This was a quick and simple card. I stamped my background with the leaf stamp in all three of the challenge colors. The two single leaves were cut using the Autumn Accents Die, and then embossed using two different embossing folders. A button and some linen thread ties things up!

Ink Pads: Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, So Saffron

Beautiful card, Sandy. I've enjoyed using the other 3 stamps in the Best of Autumn set; but, I haven't used the single leaf to any great extent yet. Your card has inspired me to get the leaf out and start stamping!

Wow, stunning card, Sandy!

Love your stamped background, Sandy. Perfectly placed Always Artichoke leaves bring the eye right to your cropped leaves. Simple and pretty! Thanks for joining us at Pals Paper Arts this week.
