Fall Leaves

For this week I have reverted back to Clean and Simple - I try to get out of that because all my cards look alike. I jazzed this one up with a little embossing, Alcohol Inks and patterned paper.

Stamps Fun Stampers Journey:   Autumn Days

Paper:  Stampin Up - Going Places, Mossy, Meadow, Fun Stampers Journey - Hazelnut Blend, MME Paper Pad Sunshine

Ink for embossing:  Stampin Up - Pear Pizzaz, Early Espresso & Pumpkin Pies  - I love their newer inks - you can stamp images like usual and they are thick enough to emboss with.

Inks:  Adirondack Alcohol Inks:  Terra Cotta, Sunshine Yellow, Sunset Orange, Butterscotch & Caramel.
