Thank you to everyone for uploading your art. In total we had 35 submissions. That's awesome!!! Keep 'em coming :D I've opened the challenge for October and everyone is more than welcome to participate this go around as well. Remember, three submissions per person. If you could link to my challenge from your blog post I'd appreciate that as well. Thank you!
Last week I was away on a little half holiday (still working on my iPad) in Bancroft, ON. We definitely lucked out as far as timing went. The trees were all hues of burgundy, red, orange, gold etc... So naturally, for October's sales I had to go with the season. Here are this month's discounted stamps...
Mulberry Leaf - $4.99
These stamps are designed to leave a negative imprint. The black area gets inked letting your background shine through the leaf/leaves. They work really well on colourful backgrounds. Here are some examples from Shirley Deatcher (DT).
In this one Shirley also used Acorn Faerie Set.
Lastly, here are some photos from my little adventure... Thought you might want to see the colours! And if you're ever in Bancroft, the Teddybear Bed and Breakfast is the place to be! Scrumptious breakfast ;) I ate like a Queen and was full for the rest of the day! Lol.
That's it for now! Bye bye :)

  4. Love those photos - awesome autumn colours!

  5. Well done Kirsten. What beautiful photos Ryn. The clear blue sky is a real backdrop for the vibrant colours of the leaves!

  6. Your new stamps are gorgeous! In fact, they all are! If you're ever looking for another DT member, I'm in for it!

    1. O, I didn't read well, they're on discount

  7. Gorgeous, Ryn - what beautiful leaf stamps, and what a clever idea, stamping the background and leaving the leaf so that the background shows through - sort of like reverse stencilling or masking. I love your photos of autumn trees, too. Stunning.


  8. Great cards I just love them , great colours and images!!!
