Leaf Silhouettes and Blessings

This is my second post today.  It's just a short scroll
down for a little escaped turkey by TAWS!

It is my day to post on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog and I decided to play with one of the new release sets Leaf Silhouettes.  I found myself trying a number of techniques and embellishments when I finally sat back, took a look at the clean and graphic stamps and realized that they would stand alone (except perhaps for a sweet sentiment!)

Sweet 'n Sassy Blessings

I just love that my kids have gone back to school, partly for the daily time of peace of quiet, but mostly because that is a sure sign that fall is on the way.  I love that I have rich fall papers and embellishments spread out on my desk.  This is my favorite time of the year and I wish you all a "season of blessings"!

I used this week's sketch from splitcoaststampers.

  • Stamps: Sweet 'n Sassy Leaf Silhouettes and Grunge Borders (on the orange panel)
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Rich Razzleberry, Papertrey Ink Classic Kraft and Canyon Clay

You long for autumn while I long for spring! And I am sure my winter is much more mild than yours ... So I really shouldn't be whining! You are absolutely right! These stamps are perfect to stand alone! Love the colours! Hugs xxx

So pretty Kim. Love the fall colors and your take on the sketch. The tag is perfect.

Love them both, Kim! When I do a simple couple of paper layers behind the image, it never quite looks as rich and dimensional, so this is inspiring in that maybe I'm being too critical of it in my own work. I love yours, that's for sure.

The graphic design suits the leaves. Lovely rich colours. x
