Wonderfall leaves and Sweater weather go together

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.

Wonderfall Leaves

This week I created a card for Hands Stamped Sentiments color challenge of More Mustard, Old Olive, Early Espresso and Elegant Eggplant.  I used the same technique for the leaves as in my fall easel card.  This card was easy and fast.  The Wonderfall leaves stamp set and die make it super easy to create leaves.  I used the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions folder for the background.  I love the pattern it’s so vintage!  I used the Scallop border punch for the More Mustard layer and I used one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits Dies for the Elegant Eggplant cut-out border.  For some sparkle, I die cut one of the leaves from the Champagne Glitter paper.  I love this paper.  Just a little goes a long way.  The sentiment is from the Day of Gratitude stamp set and embossed with clear embossing powder.
