this was for a challenge at Simply Scrapping Crafts for the Stamp & Scrap Group that I co-lead with my awesome friend and Sistah, Rona (who happens to be an Ippity Chick...look on the right side of my blog and scroll down a little and you will find a blinkie. If you click on it, you will go right to her web store). I nice simple one....design a card, layout or project that has a Clean & Simple design with a fall theme. I broke out my foam stamps and acrylic paint for this one. I had forgotten how much I enjoy my foam stamps and being covered in paint :) I also forgot how much I dislike when it gets on the dog....my loving little piece of Velcro...I do not know what I would do without him :)
Fall is definitely upon is here in Pittsburgh. It is cold and rainy with no sunshine. The beautiful fall weather will be here later in the week. I cannot wait! I love the inspiration that fall brings...the gorgeous colors, the crisp air, the vibrant spirits...ahhh...I absolutely LOVE it!!!
Card: Made from cardstock
Cardstock: Stampin' Up!
Patterned Paper: Stampin' Up!
Punches: Leaf and Branch (Stampin' Up!)
Pearl: Basic Grey
Foam Stamps: Jersey lower case font (Making Memories)
Acrylic Paint: Making Memories
Other: Exacto knife; Copic Marker (YG97 to color the pearl)
Close up details:
The pearl was cream colored and stood out like a sore thumb, so I colored it with a Copic marker to help it blend in more. The outside edging of the mats and the card it self were done with a foam brush and acrylic paint. I used an exacto knife to cut a bit of the letter F out so that I could tuck the adorable leaf paper behind it.
Hope you are all having a fabulous start to the season wherever you live and whatever it may be :)
Have a Beautiful Day
