Autumn Forest – by Deb Saaranen

Deb’s card today is a total WOW, plus she created a 2nd bonus card for us. On the first card Deb created the forest background complete with beautiful sunset using distress oxide inks and a layering stencil, both by Tim Holtz. The beautiful leaves and sentiment are from our Harvest clear stamp and die sets. Take a look:

What a stunning creation!

That forest background is AMAZING!

Deb stamped and cut her leaves/sentiment on another sheet where she had created a distress oxide background.

I love just that bit of burlap string – the natural feel is just perfect here.

And this is Deb’s 2nd card, equally as lovely!

She used all the same supplies/techniques to create her leaves/sentiment, but rather than creating a stenciled background Deb used a lattice die for the background. Love this one, too!!!

Here’s a little closer look.

What a quick way to create tons of beautiful fall colored leaves!
