Fall is Here with Digi Doodle Studios!

Hello friends!  Now that we have started October, the temperatures will start to drop and the leaves will begin to change color and drop from the trees.  That’s when we know that Fall is truly here and I look forward to being out in it! 🙂

I wanted to capture that feeling on my card for you today using an image from Digi Doodle Studios:


This cutie is called Joie Autumn and I just love her sweet little pup companion there playing around in the fall leaves with her!  She looks so happy and this is probably something I would do instead of actually raking them up!! LOL!!

Have you ever “googled” a card sketch?  I never really thought to do this, but I have some really cool Autumn type papers and I wanted to create some layers with them on my card, but I didn’t want it to look like a hot mess, so I picked out a card sketch and used that to create this card using some more papers from my stash!  I also got to use my Autumn embossing folder for the strip in the center along with my favorite glitter ribbon across it.

I’ve layered some gold foil cardstock with a few of the layers in there and added some Prima leaves and a button over the gold ribbon bow to finish it off.  I white heat embossed the sentiment from Lawn Fawn and cut it out with a My Favorite Things banner die.


Here’s this sweet image upon a closer look at the coloring I’ve done!  I’ve also added a highlight with a white gel pen to her cheeks, the pup’s cheeks and the rim on her hat.  I took a gold gel pen and colored the pup’s collar with it as well as using it for additional “dots” around the sunflowers in her hair.

The light blue shading around her was used with Copic markers as well as the blending of the colorful pile of leaves on the ground.  I took colors from the leaves as well as other colors to blend and mute them together to make it appear like a leafy colored ground.

I cut this image out with a stitched rectangle die and layerd it onto some green cardstock which is the same I’ve used for the 5.5″ square card base and the embossed strip in the middle.


I have fallen in love with these sweet images from Digi Doodle Studios.  Have you checked out the new “Pairables” Collection yet?  They’re so fun to play with and I’ll be sharing more of those with you later on!

  1. Love your little girl and puppy playing in the beautiful fall leaves. I’m looking forward to some cooler temps. Your coloring is always beautiful as well as the layout. Love the button on the bow.


  2. She is gorgeous Vicki, fabulous colouring and the one really happy time for me was jumping and shuffling through the Autumn leaves when I could jump and shuffle..lol….wonderful card.

  3. Sweetest little leaf jumper ever! Your autumn colors are sooooooo pretty! We never have those here. And it’s 87.5 i nthe shade here at 1:46pm. What’s with that? Hopefully the humidity will go down a bit in the near future. My favorite parts of your image are the white dimples and the amazing highlights in her striped socks! LOL Happy Hump Day! xx


  4. She is adorably fall. I’m always a fan of your backgrounds and how you ground your images (tried that on one of my latest cards). Took a look at the “pairables” and can’t wait to see what you produce from them.


  5. Remember when we used to play in the leaves like that, and not worry about allergies, broken bones, etc.? Lol… Vicki, your card is just adorable! Thanks for the smiles!


  6. This is such fun. Reminds me of the time I had to teach my grandchildren the joy of skipping and stamping in leaves! Thanks for the memory. CarolG


  7. as a kid one of my favorite things to do was jump into a big pile of leaves again and again! Love this beautifully colored image with all those great layers, and the big golden autumn leaves tucked in between those pretty patterns! Wonderful Autumn card!


  8. How could I not love this one to pieces, Vicki? Fantastic coloring and you do the best shading and highlighting! Darling image; so perfect for fall. I love Digi Doodle Studios (as you know) and truly envy you your position on the DT. 😀


  9. This is gorgeous, love the fall papers and perfect embellies (and such a cute image too)! Thanks for sharing with us at As You Like It Challenge!
