Our month-long challenge for Clean & Simple Sundays is to use leaves, trees, or silhouettes.
Kimberly starts us off-
Today's card features a stamp layering set by Hero Arts. I used an embossing folder to create texture on a white card panel. I used Tim Holtz's embossing diffusers to create the oval circle in the middle of the panel. I stamped the tree using dye ink in fall colors. The background paper is by Lawn Fawn.- Kimberly

I love creating multicolored leaves at this time of year! All supplies are Stampin’ Up. My card base is a piece of Naturals card stock that was cut 5 ½” x 8 ½” and then scored on the long side at 4 ¼”. I took a piece of Early Espresso card stock that was 4” x 5 ¼”. I used the sentiment from Thoughtful Branches stamp set and stamped it with Versamark and embossed it with the Copper embossing powder in the lower right hand corner. I then took a piece of 5/8” burlap ribbon and attached it on the left hand side using Tear & Tape on the back of the card stock. To do this, apply your Tear & Tape to the back of your card stock. Remove the backing and place your ribbon where you want it and wrap the end to the back catching the tape. Repeat with the other end. Apply more Tear & Tape to the back of your card stock, remove the backing and attach to the card base front. Take a scrap of Whisper White card stock and sponge on Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, and Crushed Curry ink randomly to the paper using sponge daubers. Make sure you overlap the colors and do not have any white space. Use the leaf from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and stamp using Versamark ink and emboss with the Copper embossing powder. Use the corresponding framelits to cut out the leaves. Attach the leaves randomly down the left hand side of the card using glue dots. You now have a colorful Fall Thank You card.- Robbie
The fall season inspires such beautiful cards from both of our designers, so enjoy - Denise
