Indian Summer

Penny Black is joining the Less Is More challenge blog this week to use a rubber stamp, and I knew I wanted to play along! It's been quite a while since I've participated in a challenge and I had fun creating some inked backgrounds. Based on my inky discard stack, it looks like I'll be die cutting quite a few fall leaves in the coming days! Practice, practice, practice... I used my new Delicata Gold ink pad on both of these cards and I love the shine it gives - I only wish the camera would have captured all its glisten!

I made this card earlier in the week, but am barely squeaking in ahead of the deadline, so will keep this post short - unusual for me! Hope you're enjoying some beautiful days wherever you are and this coming weekend finds you doing whatever brings contentment to your little corner!


Materials: Cardstock: Neenah Solar White; Stamps: Penny Black Petal Party, Fancy Flowers, and Dahlias; Ink: Distress Inks Rusty Hinge, Mustard Seed and Barn Door; Delicata Golden Glitz; Gem: Mark Richards


  1. You've used my favorite gold ink to perfection here, Sally! Such gorgeous cards & perfect for the challenge! Any scraps will certainly make wonderful leaves. So very happy you were able to play along, my friend.
