As stampers and paper crafters, we are always thinking ahead. Have any of you begun to think about 'Fall Themes', 'Back to School' or 'Thanksgiving'? Since I have already shown you a couple of Christmas cards made with the 'Thoughtful Branches' stamp set, I figured I should create for 'Fall' as well. Random stamping to create your own 'DSP-like' background is always great fun!
To create this watercolour look, I stamped Delightful Dijon and Cajun Craze onto a clear block, misted it with water, and inked my stamp from there and then stamped the leaves all over the page. I used 'Always Artichoke' for the little green leaves.
You will note the banner on the card is from the new stamps set 'Beautiful Banners'.
I stamped a copy onto computer paper and then cut out the the center shape. After stamping the actual one onto Whisper White cardstock and the sentiment as well, I used the two pieces to ink the banner as you see below.
In the side view photo below, you will see that the banner is the only layer that has been popped up with dimensionals.
I used this same stamping technique on the inside of the card.
I think that this would make a lovely Thanks giving card as well as a Fall themed Thank You card.
Tomorrow I will be showing you a card that uses more of the 'Beautiful Branches' die set along with this this stamp set. So be sure to stop by for a look.
