Catered Crop Follow the Recipe #18!

Today I have a Quickfire Challenge to share with you! I just love saying that. I feel all Top Chef-like! But what I'm actually referring to is the design team Quickfire over at Linda's Follow the Recipe challenge! Here's my card for this week...

I decided to break out my Real Leaves set from Hero Arts. I'm ready for some fall weather! I have no idea what fall is like here in Georgia, but I'm anxious to find out. I am *not* a fan of the heat! I also chose the leaves because one the ingredients from our recipe was "anything that grows from a seed" - leaves grow from a seed, yes? Sort of? Another recipe item was "notebook paper" - so I used the MFT Notebook Edge die on some cork, but decided to use the "leftovers" from the die cut instead.

Now for the rest of the ingredients I chose to use from the recipe...

  • Colors – primary colors like red, yellow, and a little brown (kraft)
  • Stamps and Stickers – anything that grows from a seed
  • Patterns – checked/gingham, notebook paper
  • Color Mediums – stamping ink
  • Embellishments – ribbon
  • Tools – die cut shapes
Now head on over to Linda's blog and FOLLOW THE RECIPE! :-)

Take care,

  • Stamps: CL457 Real Leaves, CL489 Yummy Treats (message) from Hero Arts
  • Paper: Hero Arts Kraft, My Mind's Eye DP
  • Ink: Hero Hues Punch, Latte chalk ink
  • Accessories: Cork, MFT Die-namics Notebook Edge, American Crafts gingham ribbon


  1. Ah . . . Fall is my fav time of year. I hope you get it in all its glory in Georgia. Love, Love this card - as always.

  2. This card is simply stunning my friend, truly a masterpiece...sending you lots of hugs and hoping you have a better day!

  3. I really like the negative cork. I also contemplate these things - like, "Hmmm, I think I like the left-overs better." :) And I would never have thought to use yellow ribbon. NEVAH! So pretty!

  4. Beautifully done, Libby! Love the border punch treatment with the ribbons! (note to myself: must get REAL LEAVES!!)

  5. I love that you used the negative side of the die...I did it once, too, and said it looked like little worked for me!

  6. Gorgeous card, Libby! Love the way you used the recipe! The cork border and leaves look fab! Our summer has been like autumn, so I'm hoping our autumn will be like summer!

  7. Fantastic idea to use the 'leftovers' from the die with the cork. Very inspiring overall!

  8. This is gorgeous! I love your mix of patterns and the cork.


I always enjoy your comments - thanks so much for taking the time to leave one!
