Fall is coming......

Hello all & Happy Monday!

I hope that you all had a good weekend. Here in NYC, the weather has cooled down alot. Even today, it feels like a Fall day. It's a bit cloudy and damp and the weather man said the high for today is 73 degrees. I like the Fall weather, but it makes me really realize that summer is truly gone. Add Image

So, in light of this Fall, I decided to do a card that represent this season. On this card, I did some emboss resist . I also used Tim Holtz Distress Inks. The colors came out wonderful and I am so pleased with the end result.

Hope you are getting excited about the changing of the seasons. Thanks so much for stopping by!


HOW-TO Instructions
Step 1: Base card measures 4.25 x 5.5 (KRAFT) -
Step 2: 2nd layer measures 4 x 5.25 - Stamp Scattered Leaves using VersaMark Ink. Using clear embossing powder, heat set it. Rip this portion of the card to create rough edge to ink
Step 3: Using Tim Holtz Distress Inks ( Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo) add color to the emboss image. Wipe off excess ink w/a baby wipe
Step 4: Cut this portion of card into 3 pieces. Adhere to base of card leaving a little space in between each section
Step 5: Using that same stamp - Scattered Leaves, stamp the image twice. Once using Orange Marmalade and then using Peeled Paint. Cut out the leaves.
Step 6: Stamp word sentiment using ColorBox Chalk Ink - Dark Brown. Adhere the leaves on either side of the sentiment. Add gem stones
