Two Cards & a Tag

Think our drought is about to end.  It's been raining all day, so Fritz & I just took one walk wearing our raincoats.  Boy do we have raking to do when there's a break in the weather!
I got the Memory Box Plush Maple Leaf die on clearance when I was at the craft retreat in Indiana last year.  Decided to finally use it for the Memory Box November challenge.  
I found an old sheet of plaid paper & matching solid blue textured cardstock.  I die cut the leaf & the veins & inlaid it into the blue panel.  The heat embossed sentiment is from Altenew & I added a few white & brown sequins.  I'm also entering NBUSSSS WednesdayDie Cut Divas & TTTC090 using the top horizontal row.



Next is my entry for Poppystamps November challenge.  I smooshed Distress Inks in Fall colors onto a piece of watercolor paper & die cut the Freida Curve.  
The die cut word from PTI Counting My Blessings was cut from glitter fun foam.  The sparkle is so pretty in person. 

I mounted the die cut to a brown panel & added some gold sequins.  I'm also entering ModSquad & SSS Wednesday.

I made another tag for 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  Tracey's  Day 10 tag inspired me to get out my old Hero Arts Merry Christmas Trees stamp set. 
I white embossed the trees & trimmed them out.  Then I brushed on PTI Stormy Sea, Spring Moss & Lavender Moon.  The edges of Poppystamps Tunnel Tag was brushed with Spring Moss.  Then I brushed Flitter Glue on the bottom of the tag & added Rock Candy dry glitter. 
That glue is incredible!  NO glitter comes off!  I stamped the old HA sentiment in Brilliance Graphite Black & mounted the front tree with foam tape.

Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.

  5. A trio of delights, Greta! That tag is so elegant and I love the pastel colors! It's so great to see another fall card because a lot of people, including me, have moved on to Christmas. This card design I am bookmarking because I have that die (both of them actually!) and I love the schparkle and the look of it cut from the smooched fall colors! And last, but not least, how fun is that blue plaid maple leaf card! Thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS! Keep well! (You can send your rain down here if you've had enough!) Hugs, Darnell
