Colorful Seasons for Fall

Good morning and Happy Thursday! It really is beginning to look a lot like Fall around here so I thought today I would share with you a quick and very easy card with you that uses very few of your stamping resources, yet packs a whole lot of PUNCH!

Supplies:

Stamps:

Colorful Seasons

Paper:

Whisper White

Ink:

Pumpkin Pie
Cajun Craze
Chocolate Chip

Tools/Embellishments:

Clear Wink of Stella
Jute Twine
Seasonal Layers Thinlits
Stampin' Sponges
Glue Dots
Fast Fuse
Post-It Notes for mask

Directions:

Begin with a half sheet of Whisper White Cardstock folded in half (8 .5" x 5.5") and mask off the left side of the front panel of the card base protecting the back of the cardbase and the right front leaving an area of approximately 2" of white space (this really isn't important, leave open what you think will look good for your taste). Once masks are in place, using a piece of Stampin' Sponge, swirl on Pumpkin Pie ink, begin swirling color onto the mask working your way onto the cardbase, this will prevent the color from being applied to heavy handed (it's far easier to add color than it is to take it away), then using the same technique, add Cajun Craze followed by a little of the Chocolate Chip. Go easy on the Chocolate Chip, you just want a little to accent the piece. Go ahead and add a little more Pumpkin Pie and remove the mask.
Using the left over Whisper White, stamp 3 solid leaves using the "Rock n Roll" technique. To do this, pick up Pumpkin Pie ink with the solid stamp, then carefully "roll" the edges of the stamp over the Cajun Craze ink and stamp onto the cardstock. Do this for a total of 3 leaves. Then, using the leaf image with veins, stamp over the leaves with the Chocolate Chip. Die cut the leaves with the Big Shot and coat with Clear Wink of Stella. Apply to card front with Fast Fuse, tie a bow with the Jute Twine and add to card over leaf stems with a glue dot. 

I hope you enjoy this card and give it a try for yourself. It's quick and it's simple and it really packs some wow! To purchase the products used in this card, just use the links below. Thank you for taking the time to hang out with me for a few. 
Happy Stamping!
