I do love the Fall!
The smell of autumn is intoxicating to me.
I love the colors which tell me the summer has worked very hard…now is time for the leaves to ‘rest’.
So when I saw this Stampin’ UP! Falling For Leaves stamp set, I knew I had to have it!
Here is my very own version of a card I will be excited to send.
The base is Merry Merlot and the next layer is Old Olive.
I embossed the Very Vanilla layer with the NEW Subtles Dynamic Embossing Folder.
You can’t see the impressions…. well because it’s ‘subtle’ but in real life, it is VERY nice.
It adds just enough texture to give it some extra ‘subtle’ attention!
Next I took the leaf stamps and using Old Olive, Merry Merlot and Cajun Craze inks, stamped then cut them out with the Thinlits.
Then for just a bit of pizzazz, I took Old Olive ribbon and Linen Thread to make a small bow. This was attached with a Glue Dot.
In the opposite corner I just had to add a Gold Faceted gem.
The message was layered onto a piece of Merry Merlot and adhered with Dimensionals. AND of COURSE I just had to use a bit of Wink of Stella –here and there for interest. To me, Wink of Stella is a must fro any project–it adds a sparkle of interest!
