Creation Station Layers of Leaves Blog Hop

Happy Creation Station Sunday to you all! It seems as though Fall has fallen on the Eastern Plains of Colorado. It was a brisk yesterday watching Wesley and his team finish their football season. When we got home, we all went about our day. I went to the craft room to work on my stuff and the kids proceeded in bursting in anytime I had a crafty friend on the phone...

This month the Creation Station team has many beautiful creations with the theme "Layers of Leaves". In fact, you are probably going to see a lot of fall themes from me this week... I decided to break out a very versatile set from the annual catalog to showcase this theme. Enough talking (or typing for that matter), let me show you what I have whipped up!

I am going to be honest, the Tree Rings background stamp is something that I had to have when the Annual Catalog came out LAST year! I just haven't used it enough... The same could be said for the Colorful Seasons stamp set as well as the coordinating Seasonal Layers dies. I decided to make some watercolor wash leaves using my Aqua Painters, Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler and Cajun Craze ink pads and Watercolor Paper. I die cut the washed leaves with the coordinating die in the Seasonal Layers Thinlits. I also cut the copper glimmer paper from the Joyous Noel pack to adhere to them. They really turned out elegant don't you think? The Tree Rings background stamp was inked up with Crumb Cake and also stamped onto Crumb Cake for a nice lodge like feel.  The larger stitched oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits layers nicely over the leaves and Wood Texture DSP. An added touch with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and a nice bow made of the Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8" Ribbon and this card was done. 

These cute little note cards were made to coordinate with my card! They fit so nicely in the little Wood Crate! I even stamped the envelopes!
