Hello long lost friends…I am still here…busy, busy, busy but I do have a fall card to post today! I have been playing around with some sponging techniques and had a piece leftover that fit wonderfully into the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #201 this week.
I used the SU Vintage Leaves along with a sentiment from the new SU Lighthearted Leaves stamp set. I forgot how gold can just add that special touch to a card. I also added a some Crystal Effects to the outline and the veining on the leaves to add a little something.
Definitely a difficult card to photograph to capture the embossing but I think it shows up.
Why don’t I wet emboss more often? It looks so cool. I still get all giddy when I see the powder change before my eyes! Do you emboss a lot or tend to forget like me?

This card is for YOU!
Yes, you…the one reading this post right now! Every one of you wonderful people…subscribers, class attenders, and perhaps even a new person to my little corner of the world today. I want you all to know how special you are to me…the encouraging comments, the text meassages, the emails with photos just delight me. I seriously can’t believe how my life has changed since I became a SU demonstrator and blogger.
Sometimes, I am just overwhelmed by how blessed I am to know you all through teaching classes, meeting you at SU events, and visiting you virtually via my computer screen.
So, I made this card with you in mind with the colors from ColourMe Challenge #85 –
Basic Gray, Melon Mambo, and Daffodil Delight.
Just a simple SU World of Thanks- don’t you just love the name of the stamp?
I added in the sentiment …a thousand thanks…from the retired SU Lots of Thanks stamp set, too. This is a super easy card with a big message!
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

Just a super quick card with another sneak peek of a new SU stamp set called Lighthearted Leaves coming out in the Holiday Catalog on September 1st. Garden Green, Crushed Curry, and Cajun Craze worked together nicely to celebrate the colors of the autumn season.
This new set pairs with the Leaf Framelits Stampin’ Up has bundled
with the SU Vintage Leaves in the Annual Catalog.
The SU Vintage Leaves stamp set (above) found in the Annual catalog stamps a natural realistic image of leaves while this new SU Lighthearted Leaves set (below) is whimsical and folksy.
It has a lovely Thanksgiving sentiment, a verse by Emily Bronte,
So Grateful for You, and the word BELIEVE.
Thanks for buzzing by…
