So the wind is different, Fall is just around the corner which is my FAVORITE season! Pumpkin Spice, crisp fall leaves and the smell of harvest in the air. How about you? What's your favorite season? The only problem is Fall in Minnesota never lasts long enough so we need to take in every single minute that it is here! :)
I have been busy playing with the beautiful stamp set call Thoughtful Branches, you know me and trees....I just love them!
I was out cruising on Pinterest and found some amazing work by Marelle Taylor. I fell in love with her green card for the simplicity but felt it needed just a little more so I added the embossing on my version:
This card could be changed for Birthdays, Thanks You or a Just Because card. Sometime I find my most favorite creations are the ones with simple and clean designs that took little effort, would you agree? Here is a closer look at the Fall version from the stamp set:
The leaves of the tree are created by adding ink to my stamp, then spritz the stamp with water and stamping on watercolor paper. This technique will give a watercolor painting look without having to be an artist. Don't you love what the gold foil Acetate gives the card?!?? Another piece of texture and a burlap knot to finish. Here is one last design:
This one was using the front AND the back view of the Foil Designer Acetate. Leave it to Stampin Up! to give us gold AND silver in the same package of DSP! I also used a new greeting stamp set from the NEW Holiday Catalog called Paisleys & Posies. Have you seen the new Holiday Catty?!?! It is gorgeous and have preordered 3 different times from it already!!! LOL If you need a copy of your own, please let me know and I will get you a copy.
I hope this inspires you to purchase the Thoughtful Branches stamp set or the Beautiful Branches Thinlits to make your own masterpieces featuring these beautiful trees! Go ahead and get the bundle and have twice the fun! (You know you deserve it!) Remember, this bundle is only available till August 31st so time is ticking. Don't let it pass you by!
Have a great day stampers!
