Autumn at Tuesday Taggers

Good Morning and yes, it's Tuesday again!
Here is my card for this week's Tuesday Taggers where the theme is Autumn, chosen by my lovely teamie, Teri. A while ago I made some chipboard tiles with Brilliance mineral, clear UTEE and some chalk inks. after stamping into the UTEE I put another layer of clear powder over and heated again. The leaf stamp is a Judikins cube. The miniature tags on the left were from Stampourium (no longer available) and the leaf shapes on the brown panel were made using punches and pearlescent powders. Do pop over to Tuesday Taggers and have a look at some of the amazing projects our DT have created.Also we have aprize of a £15 voucher from the wonderful Craft Barn up for grabs, so I hope you can join us!
My second card is another using the judikins cube and chalk inks. this time more simply with just a little clear embossing powder. I mounted the mini tags on some coloured wire and sticky pads this time. The cream base card has just a few leaves sponged on with brilliance ink using a punched stencil. As this is fairly clean and simple I decided I would enter it into this weeks Allsorts challenge where the theme is ...Plain and simple! They are being sponsored this week by 'One stop card crafts' and the DT have produced some amazing cards.
Thank you so much for dropping by. I really appreciate your comments. I only wish there were a few more hours in the day so I could blog more regularly and visit you all!

Hi Sal

I know what you mean .. .. so many blogs and not enough time to see them all!!!

Even if we sat all day and night I don't think we would be able to visit everywhere we would like to go.

Your creations are beautiful as always. I love leaves - especially when you can see the veins.

I hope you have settled back into your new school year .. .. and new classroom .. .. OK.

Love Jules xx

I'm with you on the hours in the day, Sally. I sit down to do something and I'm still hopping round Blogland 2 hours later!!
These are both gorgeous. The leaves look almost real and your tile letters are a great idea.
