Every leaf speaks

Hi everyone! We’re almost a week into September… where has this year gone?! This is my first post as a new design team member over at Stinkin’ Inkers! I’m SO stoked! Come on over and play with us in our September Leaves Are Falling Challenge – we want to see your project using Fall colors! I created a fun quilt block card depicting a definite Fall theme. Fall is finally here… hooray!


What a fun card! I made one of these a while back for another DT and with a different theme, and I really enjoyed it. The little ‘quilt blocks’ are layered and popped up on foam for dimension. I stamped and cut several different leaves and faux tied them together with some twine, and then added a couple tiny buttons.


I decorated the inside with leftover pieces of cardstock and DSP from the front, along with an extra leaf, and then stamped the awesome sentiment.


One more angled look… I’m totally loving how this turned out!
