Hey Stampers !!
My October Stamp Club is tomorrow night, so I have been busy making sure I have everything prepped and ready to go !! We are actually going out of town for this one (I have one lady in my club that lives in a different community) so I triple check anything, because If I forget it we have to do without it !! Hahahahaha The other card (see my Affection Collection card in an earlier post) for this months club uses some beautiful Fall products, the Wonderfall stamp set and matching Autumn Accents Bigz Die. I love how this card turned out, what do you think ?!?
Nice, eh ?? I think it would be great for either a man or a woman recipient, and you could change out the sentiment to any occasion !! And one of my favourite items from the Holiday Mini, the fabulous Champagne Glimmer paper, has a starring role !! Blingy buy not girly blingy ... hahahahaha. The trick to using the Wonderfall/Autumn Accents combo is o die cut the leaves first using the Big Shot, and THEN stamp on them !! Its actually easier than it sounds. After you have your die cut, ink up you stamp and lay it on its back. Then lay the die cut on top and rub with your fingers (or just flip the stamp over, I find that the wet ink makes the cardstock stick enough for that) and press! As you can see from the photo, it works great !!
My leaves here are stamped with Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and More Mustard. All of the die cuts were then inked with Crumb Cake ink to give them a more weathered look ... they are leaves after all !! Hahaha Also love the way the Woodgrain embossing folder looks with these leaves, like they are falling from an old tree !! The sentiment is from the Curly Cute stamp set and was also inked in Crumb Cake. I have 3 stacked up dimensionals behind the middle of the sentiment banner to add some dimension as well. I also added one of the Brushed Bronze Buttons with a 1/2" Circle of the Champagne Glimmer paper in the middle to the end of the banner. Love those things !! And they stick great with some Mini Glue Dots. The knot of 1/2' Cherry Cobbler Scallop Dots Ribbon was added to the bottom of the leaf cluster for another pop of color.
I really like how this card turned out ! I hope my Stamp Ladies like it as well !! Thanks for dropping by today and Happy Stamping !!
