Oops! I had a glitch and didn’t post for a few days, but I’m back! Today I wanted to play with a new stamp set from the Annual Catalog, Vintages Leaves. This set is so perfect for all your fall projects and lends itself to using gorgeous fall colors, like Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow.
Mossy Meadow is one of our 2014-16 In-Colors and is expected to be discontinued next year, but you never know, Stampin’ Up! may decide to keep it around. I’d be happy if they did. 🙂 I also added just a touch of Tangelo Twist, also an In-Color. The background of the card is Always Artichoke, then a layer of Crumb Cake and another of Cajun Craze. I stamped the leaves on a Very Vanilla piece that measures 4.5″ X 3″. I stamped the sentiment from the Trust God stamp set on Very Vanilla in Cajun Craze. Then to bring in the Always Artichoke back onto the front I punched out a piece of Always Artichoke with the Decorator Label Punch and cut it in half then I attached it to the back of the Very Vanilla piece.
A couple of pearls and an Old Olive Seam Binding Ribbon and the card is done. When I was working on this I had a visitor…..
I love this man! He stopped by my office to see if I wanted to go to lunch with him. Of course, I said yes! We went to a great little restaurant not far from our home and had some great pizza. Then I came home and finished this little post for you. Here’s another picture of the whole card.
I hope you like my card for you today and it inspires you to go and create something sweet for someone.
