Three Leaves and More


After making snowbanks on my last card, I decided to back up the season a bit from winter to Fall.  I've made another card for the Hope You Can Cling To challenges on Splitcoaststampers-HYCCT1422. The challenge is: SHOW ME THE LOVE--Create a project showing the love without putting the sentiment "I Love You" on the front cover. Most, but not all, crafters showed a cute couple--some people or animals or just whatever, (I probably should have) hearts, etc. on their card but I went with Thanksgiving which is a wonderful time to show that you love someone.  At least, I think of this as a Thanksgiving card and the sentiment does show love and thankfulness for someone.

I made the card 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 because the stamp was rather large.

I will enter this card into the challenge at Party Time Tuesdays challenge PTT #186-Anything Goes.

Also, entering here: Addicted to Stamps and More-Challenge #118/Holiday 

Another wonderful challenge to enter: Stampin' Royalty-Anything Goes-#251

Recipe:
Stamps-Heartfelt Creations/Swirly Autumn Leaves
Paper-PTI white cardstock, Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler
Ink-Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories-Recollection enamel dots, Copics Y17, Y18, Y23-YR14, YR18-R29, R39-B21, B23, B26-YG63

For my faithful readers, would you like to win this die cut from Spellbinders? It is called Garden Gate.  It's one of Spellbinders Die D-Lites. I haven't used one but Hobby Lobby sells them now so I'm sure I will be purchasing them. I'll pick a random winner from the comments on Monday, 10/27/14 and post the winner.

I love this card Benzie. It's bright it's colorful and it's the perfect example of fall. Just beautiful.

I have several of the gate dies and I love using them. - Jim

Hi, Miss Benzi! Another gorgeously colored card! I recognized the style of the HC image, but did not recognize the image itself, so that is a new one for me. I especially like that you created a square card base, and then used a rectangle shape to showcase the masterpiece portion! Beautiful!

I have not see the SB gate before. We are getting a Hobby Lobby across the county (about 20 miles away). It might open early next year! hugs, de

Oh I love your card. And how thoughtful to use the symbolism of the leaves as a gesture of love. Very nice Brenda. Love your coloring and of course thanks so much for the chance to win....I saw these new dies over there at Hobby Lobby just did not have time to explore them further. Hugs, my friend...joann

Becky said...

How did I miss this beauty! Gorgeous layout and gorgeous colors on the leaves.
We do not have a hobby Lobby here in RI, we have a Micheal's, but they seem to be scarce with paper crafting items. :) This gate die is gorgeous.

Lynne in NI said...

Perfect CAS design and I love your beautiful leaves Benzi! Our trees at the back of our garden are almost bare now, so not too many more of these to get cleared up :)

MaryH said...

This definitely shows me the Love - along with the gorgeousness of color. And your sentiment has Love as well. I'd say you met the criteria very smartly with this beautiful leaf which celebrates a season of thankfulness as well as love. Good job! Our H/L is selling those DLite S/Bs too, just not a large selection. TFS & Hugs

Davi said...
