Fall cards

Here are some fall cards I recently created. I had two birthdays and an anniversary in October, so I got to use 2 of my favorite stamp sets-Lovely as a Tree (SU) and Nature's Vein (CTMH).

The anniversary card was made using Lovely as a Tree (SU). I inked up the leaf part with distress inks in three colors, then added clear embossing powder while the ink was still wet and heat embossed. The trunks were inked with a brown dye ink marker. That ink dried as soon as it touched the paper and didn't get any powder. I Cuttlebugged the card base and layered a darker orange scrap with distressed edges. The stamped image was matted with brown cardstock. Tied a brown satin ribbon over the corner and presto!! a beautiful card. The card design was cased from

The second card was used as a Fall birthday card. I used Nature's Vein (CTMH) and did the rock and roll technique to get 2 colors of ink on the stamp. The background on this card has also been Cuttlebugged, but I added ink over the raised design. The twill was already distressed, from my stash. This card was cased from:

Hope you like these fall cards. They were both pretty quick and easy to make.
