This is one of the cards that we'll be making at the Fall Occasions Stamp-a-Stack this weekend. Class participants will be making 10 cards, 2 each of 5 different designs.
The card above features the Autumn Splendor stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog. I already have several leaf and/or tree stamp sets, but this one is definitely becoming one of my favorites!
I randomly stamped the leaves in Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, and More Mustard on the top 2/3 of Very Vanilla card stock. I punched the circle out with the 1-3/4" circle punch, stamped the greeting from Heard from the Heart at the bottom, and tied 5/8" Chocolate grosgrain ribbon around the card stock before adhering it to the Really Rust card.
But the really neat thing about this card is the SHIMMER!!! I stamped the maple leaf in More Mustard ink onto Very Vanilla card stock, then cut it out. I used a Stampin' Sponge with just a tiny, tiny bit of Champagne Mist Shimmer paint to make it sparkle and shine. So pretty!!!
Again, I've had people ask if I would do this card class as a Stamps by Mail for those unable to attend. Because I use many different stamp sets and accessories in my classes, it would be very difficult to offer this particular class that way. So, I'll make you the same offer as last month.....
