Tweet Leaves

The SUO Challenge this time is to make an Elegant Autumn card.  Oooooooo…I love autumn!  But…when I sat down to work on it, somehow traditional autumn colors didn’t seem to appear on my card anywhere…LOL!!!  I wonder how THAT happened!

I do love how this turned it out though and I do love the Island Indigo, Elegant Eggplant, Sahara Sand together.  The base of the card is Island Indigo.  I took a piece of Elegant Eggplant, inked the Argyle Embossing Folder with Elegant Eggplant ink and then ran my paper through that to give it more depth.  I layered this on Sahara Sand then added to the card base.  I added a piece of the newsprint then a piece of Silver Glimmer paper.  I embossed the image on Very Vanilla then sponged the three colors on it.  I curled the ends of the leaves then added to the card front.  I stamped the greeting using Elegant Eggplant on Sahara Sand, cut into a banner, added a ‘bow’ (click on the tutorial tab above to get to that tutorial) from Natural 7/8″ Ribbon and an incolor Printed Brad then added to the card front using glue dots and dimensionals.

Set(s): Tweet Leaves, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand, Island Indigo, Elegant Eggplant, Newsprint dsp, Silver Glimmer
Ink: Versamark, Sahara Sand, Island Indigo, Elegant Eggplant
Other: Autumn Accents Die, Clear Embossing Powder, Argyle Embossing Folder, Natural 7/8″ Cotton Ribbon, Incolor Printed Designer Brads, Dimensionals

 

Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!
