Fall Leaves and More

Have you been watching all the incredible fall and Halloween projects popping up all over the web?  I just love the fall color palette,  don't you?  So colorful and vibrant!

I am enjoying my newest dies, the Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations Layered Leaf and Pumpkin Parts. 

The Tattered Leaves dies is one of my most used so I'm really enjoying the new leaf. I love to use kraft paper to create my leaves. It gives the most realistic look.  A variety of distress inks bring them to life. Love how I can layer these inks to create depth and dimension. 

I started with some leaves and a pumpkin to create this place card. 

Another project in the works is a fall centerpiece featuring a dimensional pumpkin. I snapped these photos quickly so they are not the best quality. So excited to share. I'm really happy with how's it's turning out. 

These leaves are a combination of Kraft paper and Core'dinations craft core.   Thinking I will add other leaves and greenery to give this piece more dimension.  I will post more photos once it's complete on the mantle and dining table so you can see what a beautiful focal point it will be to your holiday home decor. 

Thanks for stopping by. Would love to hear what you think. 

Happy Creating!

Hugs, Sharon

    1. Your comments mean so much Jenny! Can't go wrong with these dies. Leaves will work year round. So relaxing to make the background colors and die cut a mess of leaves. Thanks for stopping by.
