For my project today I designed a Fall Themed October Birthday Card for my Mom whose Birthday is next week. Mom if you are reading my blog today - Happy Early Birthday!!
Anyone who knows me well knows I just adore Autumn Leaves ---Fall is absolutely my favorite time of year! I love the crisp Autumn Air and watching the leaves change color! And this year I am so excited that I am going to be home in Maine for the peak leaf peeping season!
I used the Maple & Oak Leaves and the Acorn image from Autumn Words to create my background paper. I used tear drop versamagic pads to load my images with multiply colors - I prefer to use a blended (chalk) ink when I am working with clear stamps if I am not coloring the images. I find the ink sticks better to the clear stamps and gives me finer details.
Next I used a grided acrylic block to set up my sentiment which I also loaded with several colors of ink so that my sentiment would tie into my background paper. Since I wanted to accentuate that this card was for my MOM, I used letters from Market Place Alphabet Stamps and die cut the sentiment with the Double Ended Tear Drop Tag Element from JustRite Custom Nested Sentiment Dies.
Autumn Words - which has 40 images that will take you from the first day of Fall through ThanksGiving!! Great for scrapbooking as well as card making and this set will be your go to set for Fall!!
