Fall, Fall, and More Fall

We have been having such beautiful weather and the leaves are starting to change even more.  My friends and I are planning to do a little excursion into the mountains soon to see all the beautiful color.  I am still in the mood for Fall cards.  I have also fallen in love with the Funky Fold Card technique that I used for my last card.  I was so excited because I won my first challenge with it.


Well, I decided to play with it some more using the Fall theme.  I used my borrowed set of stamps from Our Daily Bread (bet my friend is wondering where her stamp set went) to create a beautiful Fall scene with sunflowers.  I used chalks to color them. 



The fence is a MS border punch.  Behind the sunflowers is a scalloped oval that I lightly sanded to bring out the lined pattern in it. 







The leaves were cut out with a Spellbinder die and run through the Big Shot to emboss. 

Then I used the die as a stencil, added versamark, and then sprinkled different colored embossing powders on top to creat the beautiful coloring.  I had so much fun with these.  The message on top is also from Our Daily Bread, stamped onto a Cuttlebug Die.

I entered this card in the ODBDSLC33 Anything goes but with ODBD Stamps Challenge.

I also entered it in Our Daily Bread Designs Stamping In Time: On Assignment Challenge (SNTODBD20) using embossing powders.  I used 4 different embossing powders to "paint" the leaves on this card.

Crazy 4 Challenges C4C59 also had the theme of Fall so I thought they might enjoy this card.
