Hello, You wouldn’t think this Florida girl would be so into making Fall themed cards while it’s still in the high 80’s, but let me tell you, I may need an intervention! LOL I am hooked! I was thinking as I typed this post the same thing happened a couple of years ago and I was using this same stamp and die set. It is just awesome and one of my all time favs from SU!
When I saw the challenges starting over at Inspired by and Tic Tac Toe Challenge and they were fall inspired, I used them as an excuse to use this stamp and do this technique one more time…well maybe two more times. Stay tuned. :). For the Tic Tac Toe board I picked the center row of Orange/Rust, Free and Layers. And for the Inspired by I obviously chose the fall pic.
Card Details: Stamps and Dies are from Stampin UP and called Colorful Seasons. I first made a stencil of the die that matches this stamp. Then I stamped a white panel of leaves. Next, I used my stencil and sponged each leaf one at a time using three colors of Oxide Inks. Then, I decided to change this card up a bit and put dimension on three of the leaves. But before I did that, I sponged the background with yellow purposely leaving a bit of light around each leaf. I cut the leaves out four times on white paper to achieve my depth. Pictured below. Last, I decided to use my hello die from Simon Says Stamps and its shadow. I decided not to put the bottom right corner background back in as I liked the look.
I hope you have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by!
Take care, Nanc’
