Falling in Love with FALL for SIP174!

Hello All!

Happy November 1st to you ALL!


Today’s Card is a great Fall Card!

The Challenge from Stamp Ink Paper (SIP#174)

Here is the Challenge!


The Theme is Trick or Treat…I went with a trick!

Let me explain…

Awhile back, I was perusing Pinterest and came upon this card

by Brigit Edblom from Penny Black Stamps.

Here is the Card!

leaves punched and tied to twig

Isn’t that gorgeous?

I don’t own the stamp set, but I wanted to recreate this card…

…so I used what I had. First I went out to my yard and snipped off a

long piece of branch from one of the fallen limbs from Hurricane Florence.

I brought the twig back to my craft room and measured off and cut a 3″ piece.

I then set to work on my card…BTW the ‘Trick’ is the piece of twig!


Here is what I came up with!


Ha! I Love it!

I made this a Sympathy Card…I like having

these kinds of cards on hand, when I need them.


Here is the inside of my Card!


I stamped the leaves into Mango Melody and then with a finger dauber, I daubed

 into Cajun Craze, and then just randomly hit the stamp with the Cajun Craze ink.

I then stamped the leaves onto the front panel and the inside of the Card, one at a time!

I attached the ‘twig’ to the card with Mini Glue Dots.

I love how this Card turned out!



Mango Melody- card base, 8.5″ x 5.5″ score @ 4.25″ fold in half on the score

Whisper White- front and inside panels, 4″ x 5.25″

Here is my Card, again!


I am definitely going to make this Card again!


Until the next Post…Blessings and Comfort to you ALL!
