Fab Friday Challenge

Hi, everyone!  I found a cool, new challenge to participate in called Fab Friday.  I used the sketch challenge to create one of the cards for my Fun, Fabulous, Fall Stamp Camp.  I'm all filled up for Wednesday, but do have a few spots left in my Thursday class.  Here's the card:


I love, love, love the new Woodgrain embossing folder!!!  The new Early Espresso Core'dinations card stock works lovely with this project, don't you think?

I used France Martin's idea on how to create veined leaves with the Woodgrain embossing folder.  The designer series paper is from the Orchard Harvest collection.  I got that dsp for free at Convention!  I used other patterns from that pack in another one of my Fun, Fabulous, Fall cards.  A post of that one will be coming soon!

Here is the original sketch:



Stamps:  none
Paper: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso Core'dinations, Orchard Harvest designer series paper, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Cajun Craze, More Mustard
Ink: Soft Suede (for sponging)
Accessories: Big Shot, Autumn Accents Bigz Die, Woodgrain embossing folder, Stampin' Sanding System, Brushed Bronze Designer Buttons, Linen Thread, Stampin' Dimensionals

Happy Stamping!

Susan, this is fantastic! I just got the leaves die and now I know exactly what I want to do with it!
Did you fold the leaves in half before embossing them?
