Fall Cards

Hi All,

Here are some great fall cards using the same stamps. I used the Autumn Stamp Set to create a background and decorations for the Leafy Wreath stamp. The wreath is so versatile because you can decorate it with poinsettias, daisies, roses or just leave plain for all seasons. I also stamped the Steam stamp with the Spanish Moss VersaFine for a leafy green touch. It gav the feeling of the wind blowing the leaves in the background.

Other good uses for the Steam stamp is using it as steam, exhaust for a car, exhaust for a plane, waves, wind, or just a decorative background. You can stamp in a pad or in a glue pad and add glitter.

I enjoyed making this card. I stamped in VersaFine Vintage Sepia and colored them in. I then punched them in a one inch circle punch and added the stitches around the design. I added 3D Crystal Lacquer for a dimensional shine. I also enjoyed using our new Grosgrain ribbon. I used the ATG Gun and wrapped it around a card strip. I then made a bow with the ribbon and made a glue dot with the ATG Gun. The ribbon is silky and thin enough to make a nice looking bow. Some grosgrains I have used in the past have been too thick for card/bow making. We have some great classic colors for all kinds of card making. Check out the website for selection. They come in 3/8 and 5/8 inch thicknesses. We have samplers and spools will be available soon. The colors are white, black, brown, light pink, bright pink, red, green, lime, baby blue and cream.

I will be posting a ruffled ribbon card tomorrow. Stay tuned...

I absolutely love the wreath card. It is adorable with the pumpkins. I recently made another wreath card using your chicks as decoration with fall colors. This shows how versatile your lovely stamps are!!
