Let’s Try This Again!…

So after the glitter explosion and epic failure of the fall card I had in mind yesterday, I switched it up a bit and back to the drawing board I went!

Fall is my favorite time of year.  After a long HOT summer, the crisp cool air is very  welcome.  I also love the colors of fall and living in the Hudson Valley area, there isn’t much better. It amazes me that I’ve already seen trees starting to change.   WOW!  Anyway, that is the inspiration for this next card… The colors of the season.

I started with white card stock and a  Unity Stamp Company background stamp. I used a   Versamark Watermark Stamp Pad and Ranger’s Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder – Clear, followed by  a few Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Aged Mahogany, Wild Honey & Vintage Photo to create the background, which I spritzed with a little water. 
The sentiment (Unity Stamp Co) was stamped on Vellum using STAZON Ink in Timber Brown.  
The adorable leaves (Unity Stamp Co) were stamped using the Tim Holtz Distress Inks noted above with the Ranger’s Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder – Clear on Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Heavy Base Weight Card Stock in Kraft (used as the base of the card as well).  
Additional Tools / Products:

Well, that’s all for today.  I hope you’ve enjoyed the card!  Have a Great Night!
