Picket Fence Studios October Release is Here with Freshly Made Sketches #457

Happy Wednesday, the 14th! Two awesome days for stampers! The October Picket Fence Studios release is here and it's one of my favorites! Today I am sharing a trio of cards made with the new Maple Leaves Dies, and one of them uses this week's new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!

All of my cards today are using the same color scheme and style - clean and simple, along with inchies! You can find the entire release HERE. Happy Shopping!

All of the leaves were made with a "brayer cleaning sheet" from my Gel Press printmaking days awhile back. I love how they turned out. I like the touch of pink with the fall orange, red, and gold. First up is a card using the larger of the dies, and a sentiment from Dad's Day.

My second card uses the smaller of the Maple Leaves Die, and a sentiment from Weathering the Storm Together.

Here is the brayer sheet as I started cutting.

And finally, the third of the trio uses the new Thank You for Being You stamp set, as well as the larger die. This is also my sketch sample this week for the new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!

Linda is our hostess for this week's sketch, and it has so much room for interpretation. The challenge is open until October 19.

Be sure to stop at the Freshly Made Sketches blog, and click on the names of my teammates to see what beauties they have created this week!

  4. Oh Judy, these cards are gorgeous! Those leaves are just amazing! They contrast so nicely against the black and white! So perfect for fall!
