Hello this really chilly morning. I really do not like the cold and I'm getting worse the older I get! Cary however, LOVES the colder weather other than the fact the sun doesnt shine. She loves the sun and I just like being warm!
Anyway, I have again been playing with the Autumn Greetings stamp set, more information HERE. This time I stamped an acrylic block onto the ink pad, dropped a little water from water brush and using a sponge, gently rubbed it across the card mat. I tore a piece of printer paper in half and placed each piece across the Whisper White mat leaving a gap between them. I slowly added some different colours using the same method and gently coloured in the band between the pieces of paper. I used Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and a little Cherry Cobbler ink pads. Then using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the large image from the set across the gap.
Once the paper was removed I embossed the tall card with 3D Hammered Metal embossing folder. I tied a knot in a strip of ribbon and fixed it along one side before adding the mat to the Cinnamon Cider card base. A message stamped onto Whisper White card and punched out using the 1,1/2" circle punch then added it to the circle of Cinnamon Cider. I completed this one by die-cutting a few of the leaves and a message for the inside.
In theory these were not #simplestamping cards but they were very easy cards to make with a little die-cutting added for embellishments.
