Here you go, I stepped up version from yesterdays card. I still used all of the same products but today I added the burlap ribbon. I know that some of us find it hard to use DSP as a focal part to a card (especially when you really like it as we treat it like gold) but I hope that you can see that it makes a HUGE POP!
This fun new Fall Stamp Set is versatile and it is fun to play with color. Both cards are great but when you see them side by side you can clearly see that adding the POP of DSP makes a statement and also coloring the leaves adds instant depth.
Here is a tip when working with Burlap ribbon and wanting to keep it straight. I use fast fuse all of the time and I anchored the ribbon to the back of the olive strip BUT THEN also add glue dots under the part of the stamped part. This ribbon has a tendency to “wiggle” and this helps keep it nice and straight.
You can see that I scored on the sides of the stamped part, just 1 notch in but just that simple touch adds! As you can see, I love paper…and I think that layering paper adds so much interest and many times you are using scraps…so it is a win-win!
We all know that Fall is full of many colors. I was happy that this turned out the way it did. Below you will see some tips and tricks that made this tree come to fall bloom. Remember, nature has many colors….no two cards will be the same so just have fun playing!
That simple little stamp of grass is going to be handy for many different cards we will make. It is super easy to use and I love the fact that it is “short in size” as that makes it easy to and to add shading etc….
One more look at the Fall fun card. I adore Fall and yesterday was a BEAUTIFUL day and all of a sudden the weather was much cooler, the humidity was down – starting to feel like Fall is around the corner! I’ll take it….I just love the splendor of colors!
Here is your 411 version – pin for the future….this will come in handy and we all seem to love Pintrest! ( I just wish there were more hours in the day to paly around with it – you can find just about everything!
