Thank You, Anniversary, Friendship

I finally got a card made for AAA Cards challenge Up to One Third with the option of leaves
Winnie & Walter Scenery: Stripes image was inked with Kaleidacolor Autumn Leaves.
Then I gold embossed an image from PTI Turning a New Leaf & stamped the W&W sentiment in Versafine Clair Pinecone.
Next is the card I made for my sister & BIL.  I die cut Memory Box Grand Heart from 3 white panels & stacked them together. 
It looked too plain, so I used Taylored Expressions Swiss Hearts embossing folder.  Copic Markers BG09 & YG67 were used to make the striped background.  The sentiment is from PTI Mat Stack 3 Collection & the tiny hearts are from Gina K.  Finished off with a white crochet thread bow.  I'm entering the Memory Box September challenge.
Edited to add:  Also entering DRU.

A few years ago, SSS added the Trees & Trunks die set to my order--fun surprise!  I used white scraps to die cut the tops & trunks.  
The trunks were sponged with Distress Ink gathered twigs & the tops with peeled paint, carved pumpkin & fossilized amber.  I covered the tops with Distress Stickles a shade lighter.  PFS Color Block Stripes was used for the strips which I inked with the same colors.  
PTI Classic Kraft panel was splattered with a brown Zig & the sentiment from SSS Anna's Flowers was stamped in Versafine Clair Pinecone.  I used SSS Mocha Java sequins for embellishment.  I'm entering The Snippets Playground.
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.

  1. Fantastic cards Greta. Love the first one. So elegant... I haven't used my Kaleidacolor inks in ages. You've inspired me to pull them out and use them.

  10. I would never have tried to put so little on the front of a card, but you did and it's a stunner! Have not heard of the Kaliedacolor inks, I wonder if these still make them? The heart card looks charming with the embossed background and oh my! the Autumnal colours of your trees are superb. Beautiful creating. x
