Around the World On Wednesday Blog Hop-October 2023- Sketch Challenge with Autumn Leaves Dies

Hello and welcome to a Sketch Challenge with Autumn Leaves Dies! I am Theresa McEntee, creator of Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. Today I have the pleasure of participating in the Blog Hop with Around the World on Wednesday (AWOW) organized by Angie McKenzie. 

On the second Wednesday of each month, the AWOW team put together a thematic hop to give you some inspiration for your own crafting. This Sketch Challenge and the question on whether to add a bow or not is this month’s theme.

I found this Sketch Challenge to be, well, challenging. I had fallen in love with the All About Autumn Designer Series Paper and Autumn Leaves Dies. So I decided to play around with the different designs and colors. I love the little leaves in the dies!

My Project for today

I chose this color combination to be in line with the colors in the All About Autumn Designer Series Paper-Moody Mauve and Pretty Peacock. I did make this card using Basic White cardstock, but in retrospect, I should have used Very Vanilla cardstock. If I make another card, I will use the Very Vanilla cardstock.

Project Details


  • Very Vanilla cardstock card base: 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″
  • Very Vanilla cardstock: 3″ x 5″, 3/8″ x 2″ (sentiment) and 4″ x 5 1/4 (inside)
  • Moody Mauve cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Pretty Peacock cardstock: 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ (to diecut leaves)
  • Moody Mauve/Foil design of All About Autumn DSP: 1 1/8″ x 1 1/8″, 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ (to diecut leaves) and 3/8″ x 3 1/2″ (inside)
  • Pretty Peacock/Foil design: 1 1/8″ x 1 1/8″, 1″x 1 1/2″ (to diecut leaf) and 3/8″ x 5 1/4″ (inside)

  1. Burnish the fold of the Very Vanilla cardstock card base with your Bone Folder.
  2. Use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the All About Autumn DSP strips to the 4″x 5 1/4″ Very Vanilla cardstock to make the inside panel. Adhere it to the inside of the Very Vanilla card base.
  3. Adhere the 4″ x 5 1/4″ Moody Mauve cardstock to the front of the Very Vanilla cardbase.
  4. Position the 3″ x 5″ Very Vanilla cardstock slightly to the right and adhere in place.
  5. Now adhere the Pretty Peacock cardstock to the card front on the left side.
  6. Set up all of the squares of the All About Autumn Designer Series on the card front, and then adhere them.
  7. Diecut the little leaves, place them where you like and adhere.

Thank you so much for visiting today. I hope you enjoyed learning more about my project. Have a most wonderful day!



Hello, my name is Theresa. I have 4 children and a wonderful husband of 30 years. I am a retired Family Physician. I love having time now to create and craft, so much so that I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I have been a demonstrator more than 5 years and am having a blast! Not only do I get to craft, I meet new friends from all over the world! Crafting gives me something positive to do and to share with others. I love to have my monthly Zoom Card Making Classes so others can craft with me. I have so much fun creating the cards for others to make! My blog was initially geared toward the beginner stamper in order to help others get started stamping on their own at home. If you need information to get started, look for my first blogs. My more recent posts have been cards and projects for Blog Hops and challenges. Stop by to see my projects and those of folks from around the world! Add more creativity to your life today!

  1. Great use of this otherwise busy paper. Using it in smaller pieces like this allows each beautiful pattern to shine and compliment each other. Love it x

  2. Fabulous use of the Autumn Designer Series paper. Love the colours and designs you have co-ordinated. xx

  3. I love it! So Pretty. I will definitely be stealing this layout. 🙂 That paper is perfect. I would really like to get some when budget allows.
