It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper (FS503) challenge over on Splitcoast. A big congrats to Penni, the newest FS! I chose THIS to case because I really liked the colors. So I kept the colors, but used a water color background instead of designer paper & changed it from a birthday card to a fall card. autumn-leaves-img0493
The w/c bg was made by lightly misting the w/c paper, sprinkling the Brushos, then misting again, a little more heavily. When dry, I die cut the whole panel w/ a large rectangle then die cut the Reverse Leaves die down the side. I lined this panel up on a die cut orange panel & put the leaves die back in place to cut through the orange panel. I wanted the leaf detail to show up when I put the orange leaves back in place. A stacked die cut Autumn was added & the other half of the greeting was stamped below it. One stamped maple leaf was fussy cut & 2 orange leaves added.

Here’s a look at the inside.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

  • This is a really stunning card. You did an awesome job with the Brushos–not muddy at all.

    Love how you cut the leaves out of the card front.

    Beautiful all around.

  • Mary:

    This is beautiful! Love how you used the Serendipity Leaves Reverse Die – leaving the little openings to show the brick color behind and then using the leaves elsewhere! You make the brushos sound so easy to use!
