Hello, Autumn!

Hi everyone, for today’s card, I used Catherine Pooler’s “Hello Autumn” fall leaves layering stamp set. It has the cutest acorns! It comes with a great guide to get you started, but sometimes I go rogue.

Hello Autumn stamp set (excuse the glare)

This card was inspired by looking up in Minneapolis yesterday. It was really windy and the few leaves that have changed were flying through the air.

Awesome guide

I stamped three of each leaf on some random, scrap cardstock. I followed the layering guide for the Maple Leaf. All inks are from Catherine Pooler. I used Tiara, Tiki Torch, Orange Twist and Mandarin Spice for the first Maple leaf and the 6 leaf cluster that reminds me of Bleeding Heart leaves. On the second set, I used the same combo, but switched out Mandarin spice for the veins and used Icing on the Cake.

For the Oak leaf and the other leaf, I again followed the layering guide. I used Bellini, Polished, TuttiFrutti, and Peppermint Scrub. These colors allow for a more red colored leaf.

For the acorns, I used Bellini, Sand Castle, Over Coffee, Icing on the Cake and Midnight, Aren’t the acorns just darling!

For the green leaves, I used Garden Party, Sage, Grass Skirt and Eucalyptus. I think the green really helps the fall colors pop.

For the sky, I used Honey Bee Stamps Cloud Stencil and Catherine Poolers It’s A Boy ink. I put foam tape on the back of every leaf and added to my card. I cut off all of the leaf parts that were hanging over the edge.

For the sentiment, more random card stock and the sentiment from Hello Autumn. I used Versamark clear ink and Brutus Monroe’s Gilded, my favorite gold embossing powder. I put foam tape behind the sentiment, added it to my card and thought I was done.

I was creating a background for a different card, it required ink splashes. Apparently, I got a little overzealous. To cover up the splashes that added to this card, I added Nuvo Crystals on to the card base. I think it was a happy mistake! I added the card base to a card panel and called the card complete. I also quickly moved it elsewhere so I didn’t cause it any more harm.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope fall 2020 is kind to you all!
