A2Z Scrapbooking

The new challenge for September at A2Z Scrapbooking is called Autumn and Christmas, and we can choose which season to make a card for.

Autumn Blessed

I used Hero Arts Simple Leaf Background, along with some fussy cut oak leaves from their Season of Giving Set, which I'm thrilled to see that they're bringing back around again in their newest holiday catalog!  Other supplies:  ripe persimmon distress ink for background stamping, a mix of autumnal distress inks for inking the oak leaves, Spellbinders Labels Eight and Floral Ovals dies, acorns from Clearly Besotted's Autumn Flowers set, and the sentiment from a retired The Craft's Meow set.

And here's a second one, a CASE of Kelly's card.  She used a branch from the Dauber Bunch set and built her own fall tree - genius!  I would never have thought to do this on my own, but I love how fun it was - I had to try it, too.

Happy Fall

supplies: Simple Leaf Background, stamped in a variety of distress inks, Dauber Bunch, using distress inks also, sentiment from a retired The Crafts Meow set, Nesties ovals and scalloped ovals dies

Thanks for coming by!


  1. Lin, I love your autumn cards. The colors really pop on each card and I like all the little details you added to it. Thanks for sharing with A2Z Scrapbooking challenge.

  2. Two really gorgeous cards, Lin! I love the autumn colors...they look so beautiful on the oak leaves on the first one, and I love the clever way you stamped the tree on your 2nd card! Your Simple Leaf background is so pretty on both cards, too!
