Wishing for Autumn

Here in San Antonio we’ve had record high temperatures.  110 degrees on Sunday!  Unbelievable!  All this heat has made me wish for autumn.  Cooler mornings and days is what everyone in San Antonio is wishing.  I can’t wait.  Later this week the temperature should drop to 90 degrees which will be wonderful.  So much for the weather and on to my project.  Wanting for autumn to arrive I decided this would be my inspiration for this week’s card for Hand Stamped Sentiments Monochromatic Theme Challenge. I used one of my favorite stamp sets, Autumn Splendor to create the leaves for an autumn wreath.  I stamped the leaves with Versamark and Cajun Craze then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  To add more color to the leaves I used my blender pen with Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Calypso Coral.

  1. Very nice! It’s been hot here too although NOT as hot as Texas! Supposed to be up near 100 again on Friday, yuck! At least this card screams fall even if the weather doesn’t! It’s really pretty…reminds me of raking leave though, hehe. Soon we will be complaining about THAT and not the heat…I hope anyway:-)

  2. Great fall card! Love those leaves.

  3. Oh my word these leaves are unbelievable! I love how they’ve turned out and will have to remember to use clear embossing with them. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Gorgeous card, Genny! I am with you on the fall weather…this 100 degree heat-wave is getting to be a bit much. So many beautiful details on your creation…thanks for the inspiration to ink the Autumn Splendor set up again soon. Very pretty! 🙂
