SJC51 – Falling leaves

Hi everyone! Today we have a new Share Joy Challenge from Taylored Expressions!! I’ve been in quite the mood for fall (wishing for less humidity!!) and the warm rich colors of changing leaves! Enter this week’s tic-tac-toe challenge and we have a perfect match!

I chose the bottom row of the tic-tac-toe: foil, leaves, scallops. I pulled out one of my favorite older die sets from TE: Mega Leaves and die cut a bunch of leaves in Sweet Basil, Pumpkin and Mulled Wine. I sponged the edges with the coordinating ink colors for a little depth. I die cut a banner using Stitched Banner Stacklets and the new Playful Patterns Harvest 6×6 Paper Pack (I love that Dijon gingham paper – so gorgeous!) I combined it all on a Stitched Rectangle Stacklets die cut from Toffee cardstock. To finish off I added a little scallop at the top of Mulled Wine, a tiny button from Little Bits – Buttons and a sweet tiny little scalloped tag from Designer Mini Tags.

For the foil element I foiled a piece of toner coated cardstock with Deco Foil in Gold and then die cut it with Curly Swirlies. (I find this gives a cleaner cut and helps seal down the foil).
