Autumn Blessings

Wednesday, October 2, 2013

My second Autumn card.  If it weren't for my hot flashes and the fact that this week the temps are in the 80s here in central North Carolina, I might be able to feel fall-ish.  The Hubs and I also have to get into the pool today to clean it out for winter prep.  Not that I'm complaining about that, it's just the last time we were in a swimming pool in October was 10 years ago when we lived in Orlando!  It just feels strange, good, but strange.

So on to the card ---

I love this leaf stamp from K and Company.  It's just so dainty and elegant.  I cut out a frame on a textured white cardstock, the Fleur De Lis from Spellbinders.  Then, I stamped the leaf with Versamark on and embossed it with three fall colors.  At that point, I wasn't sure what else I wanted to do but I did want a bit more color on the card.  So, I inked up an emboss folder with Versamark, ran some cardstock through it and embossed it with the same colors.  I adhered that embossed strip to the card base and popped up the frame on top.  Last, I added some gold bead gems and a dark red/purple gem and stamped the sentiment in timber brown.

STAMPS: Leaf (K and Company); Sentiment (Inkadinkadoo).
PAPER: White cardstock
INK: Versamark.  Timber Brown (Staz On); Pumpkin, dark red and golden yellow emboss powder
EXTRAS: Gold gems.  Reddish/purple gem.
