I like this time of year, it lets me indulge in one of my favourite obsessions...leaves. In particular, fall leaves in all their glorious colour.  I could spend hours inking up leaf stamps with Distress Inks, spritzing them with water and stamping them on watercolour paper and that's pretty much what I did yesterday.
Maple Leaves 3

With so many inky leaves I just had to make another card.

Maple Leaves 4  But I made a couple of small changes in the second design.
Maple Leaves 2

Well it seemed only right to add another one into the mix.

Maple Leaves 1 Then I thought a fourth card would make this a great gift set and I forced myself to stop there  : )  but I could have made more...

What I love about this is that no two leaves are ever the same just like in nature...sigh.

Each card is a little different from the others.  Some have distressing, one has deckled edges, the brads and sentiments vary but they all have sparkly Glitter Ritz strips which are just so pretty.  I wish it showed up better in the photos.

I'm entering these cards over at the Hero Arts September Challenge and over at Moxie Fab Worlds Repetition Challenge. There's still lots of time to enter a project for each challenge.

Wishing you an inky day!


  1. These are really clean, crisp and beautiful Sue!

  2. Love all your fall leaf cards! Beautiful

  3. Fantastic! Your gorgeous leaves and CAS design are perfect together!

  4. Just gorgeous!!! Those leaves are stunning. Great cards all of them!

  5. Your leaves are gorgeous. Good idea for a gift set also. Don't you just love that Ritz glitter? Nice layout & design. Was that watercolor paper for the leaves' background? (guess it was since you were spritzing!). TFS

  6. Hey Sue1 Thanks for linking this up to the Repetition Challenge in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)
