AUTUMN SPLENDOR

This is how Joan and I celebrated World Card Making Day at the Tower!

I just love this set!

Using the Joseph's Coat technique, these cards were fun to do. Three were made with SU dsp, the other (far left) with colorful designer paper from my stash. Because of the busy-ness of the colorful leaves, it almost looks like a "find the hidden leaf" kind of card ;)

The baja breeze (blue) card came out like a leaf within a leaf, although I didn't notice it until I was done. Next time, I'll try to line it up intentionally. The little squiggle at the bottom is from the retired Fall Whimsy set, which coordinates well because of the similar curve.

The two kraft cards would serve well for masculine cards.

Which do you like best?

hi Doris these are beautiful, unfortunately I am a hands on learner and have not even attempted to try this on my own. I wish I were close by to learn it from you because you have done a beautiful job here!

Oh so beautiful Doris. Sorry for the long absence this summer. I've had such a hard time getting back into the swing of things since my sister's diagnosis. It just took the wind out of my sails.

I love your creations and see your work when you post in google reader.

:-)

Warm hugs,

Doris, I am so pleased with how my cards turned out (the ones we made together). People should really see these in person because the pictures don't do them justice. A very classy-looking card.

These cards are gorgeous! I have this stamp set on the way and I just can't wait to play with it. What a wonderful technique that I will definitely have to try!
