Phew what a faff!

Dear Oh!  This has been a difficult post!  Our router died so no intersnetty for us.  So I'm sitting in our local Dobbies in Aberdeen with a cuppa writing this post.  Very civilised!  Perhaps this is how we all should do our blog posts!! 

I really wanted to join into Less is More this week which is a one layer week with a theme of foliage.  This first card is actually the second one I thought of.  I've stamped the small leaf from Stampin' Up!'s Lovely as a Tree in Versamark then embossed with gold embossing powder.  Then I used a blender pen to pick colour direct from my ink pads - More Mustard and Cajun Craze.  Here's a photo to show the embossing. 

The sentiment is from Petite Pairs and I used the Glossy cardstock.  

So this is actually the first card I made and is also for the Less is More challenge.  This time I stamped a scattering of leaves and embossed in white embossing powder.  Then sponged on More Mustard, Tangerine Tango and Cajun Craze.  The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations (one of the retiring stamp sets) and is stamped in Cajun Craze.  This card is also using the glossy cardstock. 

Mmmm now I've finished my coffee do I go get a fancy cake???

Oh I do like this Aileen the picking out of the colour is really pretty (I'm struggling too think I might have to use what we did on Sun as inspiration!) x

What a creative idea, Aileen! I love these little embossed falling leaves. The gold embossing is very elegant and the sponging really gives the impression of the vivid Autumn colors!

Hi Aileen, What a shame about your internet:[We lost our phone this morning but the internet is still working, strange! LOL
Gorgeous cards, I think of the two my favourite is the gold embossed leaves but I really like both:0) Gay x

I always need coffee when I write blog posts ... they take so long to do!! The gold embossing on the leaves looks amazing and love how you scattered them in the corner and I love the inking on the other card, beautiful colours :0)
