Cardz4Guyz Challenge #256 Colors of Autumn/Fall

Welcome Autumn! It is still hot here in Bisbee Arizona, USA but the evenings and early mornings are cooling down a bit. Today is windy and cool. I love the changing leaves. We don’t see too much of that here, but I recently visited Kentucky and Tennessee so I saw a lot of color. So for the Cardz4Guyz challenge #256- color of Autumn/Fall, I wanted to make some falling leaves with different fall colors for my card today.

The Stampin’ Up! colors I used are: Cajun Craze, Calypso Coral, Mango Melody, and Merry Merlot. I used the Gather Together stamp set (in the 2020 Stampin’ Up! August-December Mini Catalog) to make this colorful Fall card.

For the sentiment, I cut a maple leaf with the Gathered Leaves Dies. I sponged some Cajun Craze ink around the edges of the Very Vanilla card stock leaf and stamped the sentiment “Gather Together” in Cajun Craze ink.

The trick with the leaves is that I applied ink to the die, put it on the cardstock and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. The photo on the right shows the leaf with and without using the ink with the die.

Viola! You have a very colorful Autumn card to send to your special guy!

RamZ here loves the leaves too. He appears very happy to be in the leaf pile at my sister’s home. Beautiful golden yellow!
