Paper Cutz Challenge #115 leaves

Paper Cutz Challenge #115 we're "Turning Over a New Leaf "! Make a card, LO or craft project for Fall using LOTS of leaves and any colors you'd like, EXCEPT NO GREEN or BLUE!

This week at Paper Cutz the challenge is leaves. I had some leaves left over from the wreath I made. I decided to stamp some leaf images in brown (Memento Cocoa) then use Distress Inks to color over the area. See the decorative edge on the bottom? I went old school and used some decorative edged scissors/ (remember those LOL) I added my left over leaves to the corner Brown trim and ribbon finish it off..

I had more supplies left over from over projects so I made a second card. I went old school on this one too and used a Colluzzle oval cutter for the image. (if you have been crafting a while you might remember those) Man, I used those Colluzzle shapes almost every week for years when I was a Kindergarten teacher. (good memories)

I had these little leaves that were left over from my leaf shaker card. They were the perfect little touch.

I had fun using scraps and my old tools. Would you believe I did not even turn my Black Cat cutter on for this project. What happened? I was watching a movie and did not want to leave the room :) LOL

Head on over to Paper Cutz Challenge Blog and enter in on the leaf card challenge. (One of the DT members made a leaf wreath that looks so realistic I could swear it looks like actual leaves)
