Forever Beautiful
Topic: Stamping

Ummm, yeah - this is a project from several months ago.

Assignment: Make stamped cards celebrating Autumn

The thing I most like about fall is the awesome color of the leaves. So I pulled out a scenery stamp with trees, several sizes and styles of maple leaves and a mix-and-match word stamp set. I stamped the scenery on white glossy cardstock and masked it, stamped small leaves and masked them, stamped medium leaves and masked them and then the large leaves. The images were all colored with watercolor markers.

The resulting large image was trimmed out with a craft knife, sprayed with gold Glimmer Mist, and layered onto a golden panel cut with a large nestability die. This was popped up on foam tape over a lighter golden folded card base. From the same color as the card base I cut a strip and made sections of short flag-end blocks and long blocks. These were stamped with the sentiment and layered to make little 'banners'. I added some randomly punched fall leaves gleaned from swaps.

Here's one in close-up so you can see the details better:
