Welcome to this month's 'Fall' Blog Hop! For this month's project, I really wanted to use the Leaflet Framelits and Vintage Leaves stamp set. I love these Framelits and coordinating stamps and have seen so many wonderful home decor project ideas that I could use them for, but when I sat down to create, I ended up making this lovely card. lol! Sometimes you just have to go with the creative flow!
This card initially started with the Happy Scenes 'scene'. I had stamped it on some watercolor paper with the Black Archival ink and colored it with an Aqua Painter and some ink in Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Tempting Turquoise (for the sky). Totally Fall colors! It reminded me of a piece of artwork on a canvas, so I ended up die cutting it with the Tags & Labels Framelits and mounted it on a die cut from a Gold Foil sheet from the next size of the dies.I wanted to create a cluster of pretty items under the 'artwork' so I stamped some Vintage Leaves and cut them using the Leaflets Framelits. I used Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry cardstock and ink for each leaf. I cut a Tea Lace Paper Doilie in half and a strip of Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack and started layer the pieces.
Before I added the cluster to the Chocolate Chip card base, I embossed it with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
Here is a list of the supplies I used to create this project:
