I just received a new order with some Fall and Christmas items from the current July-December Mini catalog and couldn’t wait to ink up the “Fond of Autumn” bundle! I am loving that this stamp set has several line images to color and several “greeting” choices. Wow, the “dies” for this bundle are absolutely SPECTACULAR! One “die” cuts the entire cluster of leaves and flowers and a second “die” cuts the large cluster into (5) five separate images. How FABULOUS is that! There is an additional “die” that cuts out an intricate “peekaboo” cluster of leaves and flowers. You can see a featured sample in Soft Succulent of this “die” on page 52 of the Mini Catalog.
I started with a stitched “die cut” square of DSP from the “Stylish Shapes” dies that had been laying on my desk from a previous project. This particular DSP pattern came from the “Tea Boutique” DSP. For this card, I used Crushed Curry and Basic White cardstock. I stamped the large cluster of flowers and two of the small individual flowers in “Memento Black” ink. I colored the images with “Stampin’ Blends” and then die cut them apart.
The “Thank you” was stamped in black on a smaller stitched square from the “Stylish Shapes” dies. I placed the larger floral image on dimensionals and tucked the two smaller flowers underneath. Embossing the larger white panel with the NEW “Leaf Fall” Embossing Folder gave some “texture” to this card. I added a double bow of “Linen Thread” with a folded glue dot to the flower cluster. To finish the card, I added “Wink of Stella Glitter Brush” to the flower centers for some soft shimmer.
