So, I decided to combine the two into one beautiful fall card, and this is what I came up with:
To recreate this card, here is how to do it:
Tweet Leaves stamp
Itty Bitty Banners stamp set
Whisper White card stock
Early Espresso card stock
More Mustard card stock
Early Espresso ink
More Mustard ink
Autumn Accents Bigz Die
Paper Piercing Tool
Houndstooth Embossing Folder
Bitty Banner Framelits
Fold 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of More Mustard card stock in half, creasing well with bone folder.
Run a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Early Espresso card stock through the Big Shot inside the Houndstooth Embossing Folder. Adhere this to the card front.
Stamp the bird image in the center of a 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock in Early Espresso ink. Let this dry momentarily so the brown ink doesn't smear too much.
Use the Autumn Accents Bigz Die to cut a "stencil" of the maple leaf from a scrap of card stock. Lay the stencil of the leaf over the bird image, and secure in place with removable tape. Sponge More Mustard ink through the stencil in a circular motion until you are happy with the darkness of the ink. Carefully remove the taped stencil and set aside.
Sponge the edges of the finished white piece with More Mustard ink. Adhere this to a 3 1/2" x
3 1/2" piece of More Mustard card stock, then to card front.
On a scrap of Whisper White, stamp Thank You in Early Espresso ink. At the Big Shot, place the appropriate Bitty Banner Framelits die over the sentiment, holding it in place with a piece of sticky note, and run through the Big Shot.
Sponge the edges of the banner in More Mustard ink. Adhere the banner to a 3/4" X 2" piece of Early Espresso card stock. With the piercing tool over the piercing mat, create two holes in the brown, and insert a More Mustard Brad into each hole. Adhere this to the card front.
As always, I would love for you to order your Stampin' Up! supplies naming me as your Demonstrator.
