Get Ready for Fall

It’s that time of year again. Back to school, and get ready for fall. Today’s word for the Scrap ‘N Stamp Daily Challenge is ‘leaves’. So far, the only ones that have fallen in my yard are because of the  hot dry weather. But soon enough, they’ll start putting on their dazzling show of colours for us! For my card today, I’ve jumped ahead to the show of colours.

GORGEOUS LEAVES

To create today’s card, I used a combination of stamps & dies from Wendy Vecchi, Concord & 9th and MFT.  Here’s a look at the completed card.

Get Ready for Fall

I admit – fall colours are my favourite! The rich jewel tones are so pretty, and seem to give warmth to chilly days.

CARD DETAILS

Start with a piece of white cardstock, set up in your stamp platform. Next, line  up the Concord & 9th Uplifting Thoughts leaf image stamp on either the top or bottom, horizontally. Next, use the Gina K. Autumn Collection ink cubes in Faded Brick, Honey Mustard and Tomato Soup to ink up the leaves. Apply the ink randomly to the stamp, and then blend the colours using a small ink applicator. Stamp down onto the cardstock, and then move the cardstock up or down, depending on where  you started with your stamping. Line up the cardstock so that after you re-ink the stamp again, you are stamping down next to the first row of leaves. Repeat this one more time, until the cardstock is covered with leaves.  Now, clean and remove the stamp and cardstock. Use the MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle Dies  with a Big Shot to die cut the stamped piece to size.

Next, set up another smaller piece of white cardstock in the platform. Set up the Wendy Vecchi Country Flowers flower stamp. Stamp two flowers, both the base colour and top detail layer. I used a combination of Sweet Corn, Honey Mustard, Tomato Soup and the Faded Brick for the flowers & flower centers. Repeat this to stamp 1 set of leaves.  Next, use the coordinating dies that come with this set, and a Big Shot, to die cut the images.

For the sentiment, die cut the Concord & 9th Fabulous Phrases dies with the Lawn Fawn Sparkle Paper. Die cut the word once in sparkle paper, and once in black. Glue the words together, slightly offset. Finally, add some sparkle with the Nuvo Glimmer Pen in Midas Touch.

Now, you can layer everything together!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)
