Fall Leaves

I've been busy making fall cards and thought I'd put them all on one post!  
You will find supply lists for each card at the bottom of my post!

For this card I actually used a real leaf that I picked up while walking -  to try and preserve it I inked it with Versamark and embossed it using cranberry and brown embossing powders!  Sentiment is from an Alison Bomber set from PaperArtsy.
For this card below I die cut the leaves out of corrugated card and inked them with Distress Oxide inks and then spritzed them with water to spread the ink and used another quote sentiment from an Alison Bomber set from PaperArtsy.
I made my background below by adding alcohol inks to a felt applicator and pouncing it onto a Yupo panel. I layered it under a panel die cut with a circle Nestability. The panel is up on foam dots so the background is recessed. I die cut the leaves out of a sheet of thin copper metal and layered them over the background with foam dots.
For the background below - I pressed 4 Distress oxide inks onto an acrylic block, spritzed with water and pressed a white card panel over the block. I die cut the panel using Notes-Scalloped A2 die from PapertreyInk. I die cut a piece of Saffron Spice card with a stitched rectangle die from Lawn Fawn. The leaf was left overs from another card I made - I used Distress inks on a craft mat spritzed with water to color it and then die cut it.  The stamp is by Alison Bomber from PaperArtsy.
For this card below I first stenciled the leaves using Distress Acrylic Rusty Hinge Paint and then rubbed inks on my craft mat, spritzed with water and dabbed the panel into the inks one at a time, drying in between.  The paint resists the ink so they still showed through. And, yes, yet another quote sentiment from an Alison Bomber set from PaperArtsy!
I'm linking my cards to:

Happy Fall everyone!  we are finally getting some beautiful foliage here in Massachusetts!

Stunning cards! I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that comes in from a walk with a handful of leaves! Having lived most of my life in the desert, the autumn in Minnesota is simply magical! But back to your cards - I love how they are all so different! Excellent work, Julia!
Hugs,

What a wonderful batch of autumn cards! I'm so impressed with the way you used a real leaf on the first one - I've never thought of doing that. Let us know how it holds up over time! Love the corrugated leaves too!

These are all amazing, Julia - I love your varied leaves... the copper ones are great, and the embossed real leaf looks fantastic - and I love how you are combining them all with the words. Lovely, lovely cards! It makes me so happy to see you finding such inspiration, and thank you for the continued shout-outs!
