Some New Fall Cards

Hi everyone....whether that be one or two of you or 10-20...hope you are all having a good day. I made some cards last night, whew, I have missed my creative outlet. So many other things have taken priority lately. Must not let that happen again. I think it started when we had the roto-rooter guy here and I had to move all my stamping stuff so he could get to the pipes. So my stamping stuff got rearranged and it took me a month to get things back in order. Wilst doing all that, all my garden landscaping took priorty also....Soooo needless to say, it has been a busy spring and summer. And now, here it is Fall already........where in the world did all that time go????
So last night I sat down and played with some card stock that I bought at a thrift/estate store. I paid $5.00 for 200 estimated sheets of gold card stock which measures 20x26....pretty big sheets. Cut them in half, then was able to fit them in my paper cutter and cut them down to size to make a card. The left over gold card stock was used to punch out the leaves and hexagons.
I had some leaves already made that were punched out with paper, crinkled up and dabbed with fall color inks. I then layered that leaf on top of the gold one, popping it up....it sure made for a nice effect.
Made 7 of these cards last night and on the agenda to make more. More colored leaves are needed, so I will be working on those first. I will be putting these cards in my Etsy store for $2.50 a card or $7.50 + shipping for 3 cards. I am really happy with the way they turned out and I thank God for He is the creator of all things, which includes the things that I think I have created....He leads and guides us every step we take and gives us the ideas and thoughts to pursue the things we are doing. So, all I can say is.....God can make some really nice cards, don't you think???

Well you all have a great day and keep looking up for your redemption draws nigh. Hope this government shutdown does not affect you too much. It's a good thing that God does not shut the world down to get what he wants.....Cheers ~ Louise

The leaves look wonderful on the cards. I like the shadow effect from the gold leaves underneath.
