Hello my friends! It's time for me to Play Cards with another wonderful friend! I'm so thankful my guest for November is Lindsey Larsen - perhaps you'll know her better by her blogging name Occasional Crafting. Lindsey can be found guest designing for many companies, and challenges, and is also a member of the Pretty Pink Posh design team - but seriously, her cards are really gorgeous no matter whose supplies she puts her beautiful heart into!
Lindsey and I were on the 12 Kits of Occasions team together for years. I was so happy to meet her on one of our wonderful road trips - my gosh, it's been years ago, but those hugs remain imbedded in my memory, my friend!
Here are the parameters I chose for us... it is the month of giving thanks. Lindsey and I share a love of leaves, so this was an easy assignment:
- Leaves in any color
- a thank you, or Thanksgiving card
This gorgeous image was stamped in WOW embossing ink, and heat embossed with Altenew's Rose Gold embossing powder. I used just the slightest bit of water as it is stamped onto Neenah #110 card, and a few Altenew dye inks for water coloring. I didn't want to lose a bit of the image so I used a double-stitched rectangle from Wplus9 for cutting, and the littlest of all the rounded rectangles from Altenew for my sentiment.
Please join me as I dash over to Lindsey's? I cannot wait to see which of her leaves she used today!
I'm so thankful that you accepted my invitation, Lindsey! and thankful to all of you fellow card makers for stopping by today! BTW I've already started on my 2022 calendar - hint, wink!
*I know someone will be curious about this older stamp - here it is! Grateful Autumn xx
Beautiful Fall leaves, Michele! They shine so bright with your awesome watercoloring! Love that sentiment that's a word to the wise! Thankful to you too, my friend!
WOW!!! Your rose gold embossing and all the beautiful water coloring make this card a real STUNNER Michele!! CAS and just absolutely perfect...even your splatters are perfect (not too many and not too little!!)! Those colorful leaves are just FABULOUS and make me wish they were still hanging on our trees instead of covered by the blanket of white!! Beautifully done card my friend!! Off to check out Lindsey's card now. Have a great weekend! Hugs. :0)
This is stunning, such lovely colours, perfect splatters and amazing shiny gold. Love how you have framed it and offset the panel too xx
You've painted those leaves beautifully, Michele! The colors look right at home inside those lovely rose gold borders. I'm thankful for you and your splendid card today XO
Oh how I love these leaves, the embossing, your water coloring the spattering and that wonderful sentiment! A perfect card for my favorite season.
These leaves are just beautiful! The rose gold embossing really works well with the gorgeous fall colors! Much better than the brown leaves that are all over my yard, LOL!
Gorgeous card, Michele. Looks like a fun playtime.
Those gloriously colored leaves...I can't even. Striking with the rose gold powder I would never have thought of...must be your genius showing.
I just love how you've 'water coloured' the amazing leaves in such a contemporary way Michele x. Wonderful sentiment and perfect splats x. Always fun to 'craft' with friends x.
I LOVE how you watercolored those leaves Michele, with such glorious vibrancy! And to echo Marcia, CAS perfection too! Now off to see Lindsey's card...
Totally beautiful card, I just love that image and heat embossed finishes it off perfectly. I went to purchase that wonderful stamp but they are not sending to Australia at this time😭😭😭 so it's gone in my to get later list

Simply stunning cards, Michele. You did it again. Wowed me with your talents! So happy you and your friend connected through cardmaking. Crafty hugs!
Beautiful watercoloring on these lovely leaves, Michele! I also love the sentiment and how perfectly your double-stitched rectangle frames your focal point!
Absolutely gorgeous. And a perfect sentiment too!
That's what I love about Autumn, Michele, the beautiful colors of the leaves and you made them magically appear on your wonderful card.
Gorgeous and bright leaves in fall colors, Michele! Great framing without losing the image! Love the sentiment and how you watercolored the leaves.
Fall leaves in all their glory! Gorgeous....and LeAnne's comment made me laugh out loud....brown leaves all over my yard too!
I love that you met Lindsey in person, that is so cool and full of memories I'm sure! This card is stunning Michele! I love that branch of colorful autumn leaves, you have watercolored them to perfection. Love all those lush, rich autumn colors you used. The splatters, oh the splatters are marvelous! I think I have a couple of those beautiful shades if ink cubes. I must try to make some leaves with them sometime with them. Hugs, Brenda
Just a simply gorgeous card Michele. x
Absolutely amazing! The swirled colors in each leaf is just a perfect look for the season!
So fun to see you and Lindsey playing cards together. Those leaves are beautiful!
