It’s time for some more great inspiration from the STARS! I’ve been enjoying the gorgeous fall colors right outside my door and everywhere I drive, so I decided to do a fall themed card.
This pretty card came together quickly with the little oak leaf, pine cone and acorn. I used a sponge dauber to ink the edges of the squares with Early Espresso ink. The Cinnamon Cider bow is attached with a glue dot. These images are all done with 2-step stamps. The outline is one stamp and the fill in is a second stamp. I used the same color for the outline and the solid stamp for each image. Experiment with stamping off for the solid stamp. When I stamped them full strength it seemed too dark and the outline image was lost.
I did add an extra layer to my card that wasn’t on the layout. It just seemed to need a little something more.
Here are the measurements if you would like to recreate this card:
Crumb Cake Squares 1″
Cinnamon Cider Strip 5 1/2″ x 1/2″
Early Espresso 5 1/2″ x 2″
I hope that you were able to snap up some of the great savings during the one day stamp sale last Wednesday. Watch for a Designer Series Paper Sale coming up soon. If you want to try something new, the Starter Kit Special goes through the end of the month. Remember, being a demonstrator looks different for each person. Some make it a career while others enjoy the 20% discount to purchase their own supplies, others fall somewhere between. If you have any questions about the special let me know and I will try to answer.
