Fall is the most exciting time of the year to be stamping. It has finally cooled off, leaves are falling and fall colors are the best ever! In this card today I used Cajun Craze, Old Olive and Delightful Dijon.
The card base is Very Vanilla Card Stock. I used the Stampin’ Spritzer to ‘spatter’ Cajun Craze Ink Refill on the front. Keep the card stock more than an arm’s length from the spritzer to get the spattered effect. After drying stamp the sentiment form Paisleys and Posies on the upper left side of the front in Cajun Craze.
The longish Oak Leaf from the Vintage Leaf stamp set was stamped in Old Olive on the lower right side of the front. Then using the long die from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets I die cut it in Cajun Craze Card Stock. The ends were then trimmed to uneven lengths and also two lines were cut free. Using the two pieces of die cut Cajun Craze I layered them in an eye pleasing way and adhered using small dots of Multipurpose Glue.
The leaves themselves were stamped in Black Stazon on Very Vanilla Card Stock. Then using 1/4 of a Stampin’ Sponge (I cut mine up into quarters), I smudged Old Olive, Delightful Dijon on each leaf. When done to my satisfaction I then die cut them using the Leaflets Framelits dies to match. After die cutting I then ‘flicked’ a sponge in Cajun Craze on all the edges. The two leaves were then attached together using a glue dot. I then tied a bow in Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Trio Bundle in the Holiday Catalog. The leaves were attached by placing Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the largest leaf.
The inside of the card was completed by layering Cajun Craze Card Stock with Very Vanilla Card Stock. The leaves were stamped in Old Olive and Delightful Dijon in the right hand upper corner from the Vintage Leaves Stamp Set.
