Something New and Something Old

Today I have made a card from some very old dies and stamps and one new die. I do love leaves as evidenced by all of the stamps and dies that I have. Unfortunately, I left them here in Florida. I must change that and bring some north when I go.  The trick is to remember that come May. Since I am here now, I am using them to the fullest. 

     New die from Altenew called Diamond Frame Cover Die
     Paper Trey Ink Dies that I have had for a long time. 
     Leaf Silhouette Die and Enclosed Leaf die and stamp. No longer available.
     I used Gina K Designs ink called Tangerine Twist and gold papers and embossing 
     I wish you could see the gold better 

I am entering this card in the following challenges. 
The Paper Players     PP565 Tic Tac Toe ( last column on the right)
Color Hues Challenge   Brown and Orange
Just Us Girls Challenge Wild Card Leaves
The Four Seasons Challenge    Anything goes Fall


Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate your comments! 


  1. Your new Altenew cover die is stunning and a perfect backdrop for your autumn leaves! Thanks for joining us at Color Hues!

    1. YES! Doesn't Altenew have such lovely products? I'm a fan as well. Love that cover plate.

  2. Hi Barbara! I just became a new Follower of your blog, and I'd be SO grateful to have you stop by my blog to Follow me as well. I'd really appreciate it.
    I was reading your bio, and I wanted to say...my mom's name is Barbara, and she is also a retired nurse. That struck me right away. Anyway.....
    thanks SO MUCH for sharing this awesome card with those gorgeous leaves with us at The Four Seasons Challenge Blog. We hope you'll stop by and play along again soon. Have a blessed and creative week.

  3. What gorgeous dies, Barbara! The texture on this card is amazing! Thank you for playing in my Tic-Tac-Toe challenge at The Paper Players this week!

  4. Oh Barb this is just GORGEOUS!!! LOVE your overall design (you are SO TALENTED!) The rich Fall colors are awesome! Well done my friend ... LOVE IT! Thanks so much for joining in the fun at our Four Seasons Challenge! Good Luck and we hope you’ll come back again soon.

    Please stop in for a visit!

  5. Yeah, I agree, that background die cut is magnificent, but I looooove your pretty Fall Foliage leaves, they are so beautiful! Get a little notebook and as you think of things to bring North come May, jot them down. We always say we'll remember such things, but it rarely happens lol

  6. I'd say we have a lot in common, Barbara. I have to pick and choose what crafty supplies to take when I go from place to place (three in all). I also have that leaf die and I can't remember when I last used it. I love that Altenew diamond for a background but I don't have it. You may have enabled me. Your card is wonderful and I'm glad you shared it with us at Just Us Girls.

  7. It would be hard to know what to keep in two places! Your new cover die is pretty amazing, and leaves never go out of style. Plus, they can be used in any season, really. I love what you've done with your beautiful combo, Barb! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Four Seasons!

  8. Oh wow, this is so fabulous!!! I love all your die cuts, and that embossed background is so stinkin' cool. Great use of the colors too, the gold accents really make the whole card pop. I adore your design here!!!

  9. Oh what a beautful card you have created here Barbara. Awesome die cuts and those leaves look amazing. Thanks for sharing with us at JUGS this week.

  10. I am amazed you can keep track of what products are at which house. This is gorgeous! Love the varied sizes of leaves and the way it turned out! It looks really cool! I was so very happy to see you at The Paper Players, Just Us Girls and Color Hues!

  11. Stunningly beautiful card, such pretty fall leaves! Yes, it is always hard to figure out what to take and what to leave, I have that problem just on our weekly trips to the lake house! Thank you for joining our challenge at Four Seasons!
