Autumn Leaves 07411
My card today is almost entirely bits of leftovers from other projects or backgrounds I didn’t use. The largest background is done on the backside of a piece of glossy card stock & has some kind of a coating on it..sort of semi glossy. The detail Leaf Pops were stamped w/ resist ink then brayered over using a rainbow ink pad. The white strip down the left side was stamped w/ the Fall Pops set using the same ink. The serpentine like glitter strip was a leftover & was made w/ a hot glue gun & glitter was sprinkled on while still hot. The large Solid Leaf Pop was stamped & die cut w/ the matching die. I added some little copper glitter acorns & squiggly pieces from the Oak Leaf die. I die cut an oval in the background & added the greeting underneath. It was first stamped w/ the resist ink, brayered then over stamped (slightly offset) w/ Versafine.

Here’s the inside using more leftovers. I used the oval cut out of the front to stamp the greeting.

Under the Sea cu 07324
Weekly-Favorite   Color-Challenge-Favorite   Best of 2015 SCS
Today we are taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs September release! I just love the fish & dolphins sets. I used the dolphins again for my card today along with Sunburst Pattern & Sparkling Stars dies.
Under the Sea 07323
For my card, after stamping the dolphins with Memento & coloring w/ Copics, I over stamped w/ Versafine then fussy cut them. I repeated this for one more of the dolphin on the right to elevate him a bit on top of the other two. The image was stamped twice more but I colored only the water on both & used a self made cloud stencil & sponged in the sky before die cutting w/ the two sized of stars dies. I also die cut 2 black stars & stacked them offset before attaching the dolphins on top. The background was die cut w/ the Sunburst Bg & the circle cut greeting & a black circle were attached in the circle part of the die. Some sponged aqua die cut stars were attached here & there and stickles was added for some sparkle.

Here’s a look at the inside using some leftovers I didn’t use for the front. (These dolphins were also stamped w/ a small flower from the Boho Love set.) Below it are the Copics I used.

Autumn Wreath cu 07301
Today’s Color Challenge  (CC548) is some pretty fall colors…just perfect for my Autumn Wreath! And the dessert is trees or leaves, so got it covered!
Autumn Wreath 07299
After stamping the wreath & coloring it, I die cut the large white panel then used a curved border die across the bottom. I used the same rectangular die to cut the bottom a little more in order to separate the two white panels & let some of the glitter c/s show thru. The Autumn & acorns dies were also cut out of the glitter c/s as well as one fussy cut maple leaf. The other two maple leaves & the sunflower were colored & fussy cut, as well.
