Fall is here isn’t it? I don’t know about you, but it always seems that my favorite season, Summer goes so fast. Excited by some new fall stamps from Simon Says Stamp for their month long celebration of stamping, I of course; bought a couple of things that I fell in love with right away.
I ordered a couple of backgrounds the bold stripes and the Set “MY FRIEND” from which I made this card. I was originally attracted to it by the inset sentiments in the shapes and the feathers, but there is a lot you can do with this set. Here is the card I made.
I used a new copper glitter embossing powder by WOW and it is so pretty! What is great about it as well is that the glitter does not come off after you emboss. The color palette was also Simon Says Stamp dye ink in Olive, Hero Arts Butter Bar, and Mama Elephant Orangeade. The sentiments were stamped with Mama Elephant Dark Storm.
I embossed the small stripes first with the small branch from the set and then stamped the sentiment and feathers cut them out and embossed the edge of the sentiment shape as well them mounted that with foam tape. After applying the small embellishments (with some extra Ranger Multi Matte Medium (so that they stay on) I chomped the corners with the Chompodile on the 1/4″ side. Voila!
I loved the combination with the Kraft card base and the Doodlebug embellishments. Fall is definitely on it’s way! Feel free to send a question or comment supplies used are below.
See you soon, Lee Ann
