September 22nd marks the beginning of fall and no more 100 degree days. Ahhh so nice! It’s been a wonderful 84 degrees and with the change of the weather it inspired me to create this card for Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge. I played with the Sweater Weather DSP featured in the Stampin’ Up! holiday catalog. Such pretty colors – Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry, Sahara Sand, Soft Sky, Tangerine Tango, Very Vanilla and Whisper White – make this paper perfect for all your fall projects.
I started with a Very Vanilla card base and die cut the leaves with the Autumn Accents Bigz die. For the leaves I used cardstock and the Sweater Weather DSP. I sponged the edges with Early Espresso and used the Houndstooth and Wood Grain embossing folders for texture. For bling and sparkle I colored basic rhinestones with Sharpies and spritzed my card with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. It’s hard to photograph and show how sparkly the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Sprintz looks but if you enlarge the photo you should be able to see it.
Go to Hand Stamped Sentiments to see the other projects created by our very talented design team and be inspired!
