Always Be-leaf in You

Happy Thanksgiving from Canada! Last weekend was Thanksgiving north of the border!  We have had a spectacular show of leaves this year and they were absolutely peaking this past weekend. To top it off we had the most beautiful weather. I have my daughter home for her fall reading week, her boyfriend came in from Ottawa, my son and his girlfriend came up from Toronto and on Sunday my husbands mom and brothers came for dinner. It was so busy and so much fun all at the same time!

I love everything about fall and today I have a card to share today on the A Jillian Vance Design blog!


I die cut the leaves and then did some ink blending with Distress Oxide inks to mimic the leaves that are on the ground all over my property. Shades of green, brown, yellow, orange and red. Just so beautiful. After blending my paper leaves I adhered the leaves to the bottom of a Neenah Dessert Storm card base. Then a sentiment from the Be-Leaf in Yourself stamp set was added to the top left of the card base. I blended a bit of Gathered Twigs Distress Ink around the edges of the card base to bring in some warmth. Finally I flicked some Gansai Tambi Champagne Gold watercolour over the entire card to finish it off.


I hope that fall is beautiful where you are too!

Sounds like you had a wonderful holiday! Love your design with all those gorgeous gold splattered leaves. We still aren't seeing much color here but the weather is cooler so that's a hopeful sign. Love fall!!
