SSINK Fall Frenzy: Lovely As a Tree

Fall Frenzy is today’s theme for the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation Team!  I’m not feelin’ the “fall” here on Maui!  It’s just plain hot!

I came up with my card idea by following a sketch from Fab Friday.

Here’s my card:

I reached for the old standby… Lovely As a Tree then added a nice sentiment from Paisleys & Posies.  The leaf embossing in the background gives it just the right touch.  I’ve used sponges to give some color to the trees & grass.

Card #2

Here I used the Tree Rings background instead of textured leaves.  Which card do you prefer?  I’m trying to come up with ideas for the September Cards, Etc Class!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I’d really love to hear your comments to help me choose which card to make for class!

  1. Hi Cheryl,
    Ideally like the tree ring background of the second stamp. Here’s an idea….color the leaves part with fall colored markers to mimic fall leaves. Maybe spritz lightly for a more watercolored effect. I don’t know, just throwing ideas around☺️ It’s very warm here as well (90+). It’s supposed to be the first day of fall….haha! Have a great day!

    • Oh…great idea, Annette! I’ll give it a try. I’m nervous about spritzing it but it might be amazing!! I’ll post your suggestion & give you the blame, I mean credit!

  2. Cheryl – these are both so pretty! I love your choice of sentiment to go with these trees – these are the ones I use the most, lol. Perfect sponging to add just a bit of landscaping – love it! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!

  3. I like both cards! Please don’t make me choose just one! The leaf embossing is great and the tree rings stamps is too! I guess it’s just what look you’re going for in the end! Both are great paired up with LAAT. I like the sponging on both…it softens the look. Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
