My Poor Forgotten Blog

Time really does fly when you're having fun! Shortly after I started my blog, I discovered You Tube. I was having such a blast making videos, that I forgot all about my poor little blog. So, I'm going to try and make up for lost time. Here's a fall card that I featured in one of my videos. I was walking down my driveway to put my daughter on the bus, and I noticed how pretty all the leaves were that were scattered on the ground. I picked up a couple, and as I walked back to my house, I had a little brainstorm. I decided to make a leaf print background. First, I made sure that the leaf I picked were still pretty pliable. Then I inked up the back of the leaf with Versamark. Once I placed it on the cardstock, I used my brayer to get good, even coverage. I stamped the leaf print a few times, added some copper embossing powder, and then heat set it. As a final touch, I colored the cardstock with different shades of distress ink.

To embellish the cardstock, I cut out a label from one of my Spellbinders dies. The brown patterned paper is from the DCWV Indian Summer collection. I wrapped some metallic gold thread around it, added the cream colored cardstock label with the sentiment, and added copper ribbon loops and satin ribbon to the sides.

A simple card to celebrate the season!


  1. This one of my favorites that you have done. and I believe your blog has missed you!! Maybe you can come visit more often???

  2. Yay,'re back! Love watching you on You Tube as well!

  3. Found you on You Tube. Love your blog and hope you can find time to blog more often. I know it's not easy! You have a lot of talent and I like everything you make. Would love to see more projects with "how to" do it. Read a comment about your son graduating from the 8th grade and how fast time went by. It goes by way too fast. My daughters are adults and I'm a grandmother. How the @#$# did that happen!! Really, once they get into high school the years fly.
