*AAACards #150*

Happy Sunday everyone... time for another challenge over at the AAACards Blog!  I think my favourite thing about this challenge blog is that they rotate through a grouping of main ideas but that there is an optional twist with each challenge as well.  For this challenge, you are encouraged to make a one layer card (no embellishments, no die cuts) with the optional theme of Fall.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Winnie & Walter.
I received these Gina K skeleton leaves stamps a few weeks ago and was excited to ink them up.
I don't do a lot of stamp layering, but this card needed more than just one leaf so I masked off the maple leaf so that the other leaf would look as though it was behind it.  I coloured the leaves using Distress Inks, water and a paintbrush.  I added some sparkle to the leaves with the new Lawn Fawn Glitter Pen.

Items Used:
*Carstock:  white from the local print shop
*Images:  Gina K; Simon Says Stap
*Ink:  Gina K Amalgam; Versafine Clair Nocturne; Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin, Candied Apple
*Etc:  Lawn Fawn Glitter Pen; paint brush

We look forward to seeing your fall interpretations of a one layer card!  Enter your card on the AAA Cards Website for your chance to be like Joy and be featured as a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!


  1. Perfect card for Autumns and Thanksgiving coming up. Very pretty and not as loud as some leafs can be this time of year

  2. They are very pretty leaves even before you added the colour. Beautiful card Nancy.

  3. Beautiful card, Nancy! Those leaves are absolutely gorgeous.

  4. Very pretty! Love all the white space and those leaves. Fall is definitely here!

  5. Love the detail of your leaves. =) Tracie
