Fall / Autumn Cards

Happy Saturday!  The weather is finally starting to cool off.  Not in the 90’s but in the high 70’s for a high and 53 for a low!!  Good football weather 🙂

The following card was one they made in class this past Thursday and today.

I was just playing around with inks and remembered how Brandy Cox had used big acrylic blocks at On Stage Live so I thought I would see about using a smaller block and see what I could come with.  I loved this!!

I used acrylic block A and the following inks: Cherry cobbler, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive to make the squares on the Very Vanilla paper. Other inks used were Soft Suede for the large leaves and Early Espresso for the small leaves from the Vintage Leaves stamp set.  This was all stamped on a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Very Vanilla.  Then use Cherry Cobbler ribbon from the 3/8″ Silky Taffeta combo pack found in the Holiday catalog.  It was then adhered to a Cherry Cobbler base card 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″. The sentiment is from Acorny Thank You and stamped on Very Vanilla with Cherry Cobbler ink and punched out using the Decorative Label Punch.  I then went around the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink before putting it on the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

These are the products I used:
