Hi everyone! I hope you had a good weekend! We did a lot of nice things this weekend. It is October and this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog we are 'Falling in love with...fall'
I love the vibrant colours of fall and they look so great together. This week I made a card using some new Simon Says Stamp Exclusive stamps and dies. The frame dies used for the various background pieces were die cut with the great Frames set. The outer scalloped frame is embossed with Verdigris powder. I love the thin white frame, this die cut set is really great value.
The leaves were stamped with Wendy Vecchi's Archival Inks on Ranger's Specialty Stamping paper. The Leaves & Scribbles set includes a solid leaf of each kind, as well as a scribbled one, and is perfect for stamp layering. I first stamped them with red, yellow, orange and green inks and then overstamped with the scribbled leaves, using Jet Black ink. This gives a great texture to the leaves. Since the stamps are clear, they are easy to line up. The sentiment comes from the This is the Life set.
Here you can see the texture of the leaves a little better. If you don't want to cut them all out, there is a coordinating set of dies.
For the background, I gold embossed the Leaf Background stamp on Specialty Stamping Paper. I wanted some more shine and misted with Copper Perfect Pearls.
