Neutral Fall

This creation was made to fit 2 challenges and fortunately it worked out. It works for the Global Design sketch and for Double D this week.


Using a kraft card base I added a silver heat embossed white panel. Stripes were done using a background stamp from Gina K. I found the piece of neutral mulberry paper and added a small piece of paper ribbon, that looks a bit like bark, to one side, then added it to white piece. Using the stamp set called Stitched Leaves also by Gina K I stamped 3 of the leaves onto a scrap piece using different distress oxide inks to get the soft fall colours. I die cut these and than popped them up on top of the paper ribbon and I added a few tiny black shapes left from another die. I found a sage coloured thread and tied a bow then added that. Stamped the sentiment and cut it out and then sponged the edges to match the sage thread. I’m quite happy with this one.

  1. Thanks Lisa. I initially tried to stamp the leaves in a solid colour and then stamp the pattern ones over the top but I couldn’t get it to look right so gave up and used the patterned part on their own.


  2. I love how you used different colors on the leaves. What a perfect fall look. Well, what I imagine, as we don’t really get too much typical “fall” look here. The diagonal stripes are perfect for “fall”, too. It gives the suggestion of the leaves actually falling.

  3. Thanks Gerry – to get the leaves this way I used a few mini sponges to get ink on the stamps. Glad I still have them as they are useful for this type of thing even if I don’t use them for making backgrounds anymore.
