Fall Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Papercrafts Oak Leaves -
Good morning blog friends!  Today is day three of JustRite Papercrafts October releases. Fall is in the air!  Yes, some of us have strolled out quite a few Christmas cards but I’m glad to be able to circle around and say a little hello to a new season.  I love the signals of fall, the russet tones of leaves, the cool crisp feel in the air, the cozy call of sweaters and scarves to fend off the chill, snuggling in with hot cocoa and a book. . . sigh!  My card today uses a new set called Oak Leaves.  I’ve cut it out using JustRite Oak Leaves SVG files, stamped in black and embossed with clear embossing powder then added subtle hints of color with watercolors.Fall Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Papercrafts Oak Leaves -
After embellishing with ombre sheer ribbon, burlap trim, lace and a pleated trim I added a little tag with a stamped sentiment using Spellbinders Back to Basics Tags.  Oh, and some bling :-)

    This is stunning Becca, one of my favourites as i adore oak leaves and Autumn and that ribbon is gorgeous. Is the ribbon that colour or is it two put together?

    Just as always, absolutely stunning card, celebrating my favourite time of the year!
    Can I ask please where the ribbon came from?

  • Clare WOctober 3, 2014 - 10:48 am

    Love the 2 tone bow and the pleated ribbon – wow!

    Had a go at the watercolour background technique this morning – good news… I really, really enjoyed it – I did 6 A4 and 6 A5 pieces – bad news…… they dont look anything like yours on your 25/8/14 posting! I used distress reinkers and watercolour card but not too sure on how much ink to use and where to put it spacing wise on the mat (do you use A4 or A5 card?), how much water to put on the mat – over the ink drops or not? how much water to spritz on the card and whether to lightly touch the card to the mat or give it a good press – so many questions! Most of my efforts look like something from a kids playgroup! There’s a couple that look useable and I am hoping when I cut them up a bit and mat them on something, they might look better – ohh mmmmm… not concived though – thinking I could always run them thro an embossing folder as a last resort – any other salvage ideas before they go in the bin?ReplyCancel

  • Jackie AlexanderOctober 3, 2014 - 11:09 am

    Fall is my favorite season. I love the colors and styles of ribbon, they are simply gorgeous! Great idea!ReplyCancel

  • Mary H.October 3, 2014 - 11:11 am

    My gracious…I didn’t think you could top that Christmas card earlier in the week with the richness of color, but by gum, you’ve done it again. This is so very beautiful, and I’m loving that ombre ribbon. Ditto the pleated ribbon. I rechecked – didn’t see the brand name of the ribbon, but guessing it might be May Arts ribbon? Also would appreciate if you have time to source that gorgeous burlap. Really wonderful rich fall colors, lovely design. Super card. TFS & Happy Autumn. Blessings.ReplyCancel

  • JoAnnOctober 3, 2014 - 11:33 am

    Good evening Becca, funny how before i even noticed the title i thought this was a beautiful thanks giving card although we have harvest festival which is the same thing where we give in fruit, veg, and cans, packets whatever we have into the church and they get distributed to the elderly in the parish. Anyway back to your beautiful card and it’s gorgeous colours, so right for the autumn(fall) and reminds me off all the beautiful trees and their various colours that the leaves go before falling to the ground. Thank you for bringing a little into our crafting world,
    Love and crafty hugs
