Challenge 22 - Autumn Leaves

Hello All....wow we had loads of entries last challenge, If you haven't already checked out the post, check it out...we had some great entries....

Anyway, on to the new Challenge - Autumn Leaves. I have chosen this Challenge (Diane), because in the South of England, where Lyn and I are based, it has most decidedly turned colder and looking out of my craftroom window I can see some beautiful colours in the leaves on the trees. So there you have it....you can make anything you like...card...scrapbook page, frame etc etc.... absolutely anything...but I must see leaves and autumn colours.

This Challenge is sponsored by Stitchy Bear Stamps.


As always our sponsor has been very generous and offered a prize for the entry the design team judge to be the best. If you are lucky enough to be chosen as the best you will win a $10 coupon to choose digistamps of your choice from the Stitchy Bear Digistamps Store. The winner will also be asked if they would like to join the Design Team as a Guest Designer in an upcoming challenge.
The entrance receiving most votes from the public will also be invited to join us as a Guest Designer.

Our Design Team having been designing with stamps from Stitchy Bear to give you some inspiration.....

Guest Designer Mandy, who is also on the design team for One Stitch at a Time which is of course our Sponsor's challenge blog. Mandy has used Quackity Quack and great Autumn/Fall colours with lots of leaves.

Cazzy, here I am at last and like my teamies I used the woodland scene but with Park Bench and Brr Lady, not sure they go together with the lady in her coat all huddled and the girls in sleeveless dresses (kids - honestly, they never feel the cold)! All coloured with Trias and Promarkers. Leaves punched with Nellie Snellen punch and emboss set. Crafty ribbons added with bow using Bowdabra. I nearly didn't add this as it is so similar to Caro's, great minds think alike!

I've used the 'woodland' and 'Brr...its cold' digital stamps from Stitchy Bear, coloured with Promarkers to make an autumnal ATC this week.

I've also used the Woodland scene from our Sponsor, but left is as it was with no extra colouring. I've matted it on to black and pearl card with added punched out leaves, the larger leaves are embossed and were also cut from the same backing paper. The paper is my own and is a freebie you'll find on my blog. The Autumn stamp is by Hero Arts.

I have used Snuggle Birds Digital Stamp from Stitchy Bear, Coloured with promarkers. My leaves were made using a punch and coloured with promarkers, then screwed up and teased out again.

So that's our offerings...now let us see yours...
