autumn leaf adventures

Seriously, I haven't posted in over two weeks?  I don't know how time gets away from me like that.  I've made several cards since then, but I only have four to share today.  First, I gave away one of my favorite recently made cards, so I decided to remake it.  I changed several things, starting with the colors, which are from Fab Friday.  Then I used the stamped & cut window technique from House of Cards:
stamp sets - A Dozen Thoughts, Serene Silhouettes, Hardwood; ink - Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze; card stock - Hello Honey, Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss; Big Shot with Leaflets and Project Life Cards & Labels framelits

It took me two tries to get the hardwood stamped & cut window layer the way I liked it, so I had two leaves leftover when I was done.  I combined them with the embossed & cut window I had leftover from another project, after I changed my mind about the window size:
stamp sets - Vintage Leaves, Trust God; ink - Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze; card stock - Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake; Big Shot with Leaflets and Project Life Cards & Labels framelits and Woodland textured impressions embossing folder

After all that autumnal fun, I just couldn't resist one more Christmas card, but I'll type that out in a separate post so you have a chance to check out the challenge links in this one, first.  After you check them out, you should totally play along!
