A Little Bit Fall

So I promised myself that last night I would get some stamping done. I had a very difficult time as my room is still a mess and I couldn't find my Mojo (even though every night I lay in bed with amazing ideas of which I don't think I have ever completed one of those ideas because by morning time....they are gone. Anyone who knows me well, knows that I have a great memory but it is very, very short) LOL

So for all the things I wanted to do last night, I only got around to making one card. I have been wanting to do a fall themed card for a while now, so I pulled out 2 new In-Colours and starting working away.

I went with a 5 x5 card using Soft Suede cardstock as my base. Next I cut out a Large Scallop of Dusty Durango cardstock using my Big Shot and then ran it through again using my Texture Plate so that it had some dimension. I then used my Mat Pack and pierced holes in the center of each scallop.

My image is from the Autumn Harvest set and stamped in Black Staz-On ink onto watercolour paper. I let it sit for a bit and then coloured in with my Aquapainter using the same inks as my paper. I cut the image out using my smaller Scallop Circle # 2 die and I hand cut the leaf and popped it up on the edge of the scallop. I layered on my card and then stamped my Just for You sentiment in Soft Suede ink on Soft Suede cardstock, punched out using the Modern Label punch and popped up with Dimensionals.

Thank you for popping in and have a great day.

Margaret :)
