On this stop it's all about the leaves!
As Summer is leaving us and we head into Fall I've been thinking of how beautiful the leaves will be as they change into those gorgeous warm colors of Fall.

Here is my Everything Fall Card!

I started with a 1/4 sheet of Canson watercolor paper and taped it down. I then took an old paint brush and applied Winsor & Newton watercolor masking fluid around the perimeter in a wonky rectangular shape. As I was applying it some of it would come back off in streaks which gave it a cool effect. Water was spritzed on the paper followed by Ranger Dylusions ink sprays in Lemon Zest, Cherry Pie, Fresh Lime, Squeezed Orange, Vibrant Turquoise, and London Blue. After letting it dry thoroughly I cut it down to 4" by 5 1/4". Next I stamped the girl with the rake and the leaves from MFT's Thankful Friend set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White 80lbs card stock and colored them with Copics.

Then I cut them out using my new Brother SNC2 which saved me lots of time. Using the sentiments from the same set I embossed the outer one in Ranger Ultra Fine White and stamped the inside with SSS black, I also added leaves to the inside. To assemble the card I first made a pile of leaves and distributed the rest to look like the wind blew them, then added Glossy Accents. The girl was popped up on fun foam and so was the watercolor paper piece. I placed the finished piece on a 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" piece of MFT Gumdrop Green card stock and then attached it to my card base.

Here is my Everything Fall Project!

Wonder what to do with those Stampin' Up wood blocks after you've unmounted them? Well here is a wonderful project just for them.

 I picked out blocks to fit what I wanted to put on them then painted them with Deco art Patio paint in fall colors.

 I let this dry while I worked on cutting my letters and saying out of Brown Vinyl using my Silhouette Cameo and applied them to the blocks. All that was left to do after that was to stamp my leaves using MFT's dye ink in Gumdrop Green, Cranberry Cocktail, Safety Orange,and Fuse green and Hot Fudge. I let this dry over night. You can either glue the blocks that say fall on or you can just stack them. I like the versatility so mine are not glued.

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed my creations. I'd love to hear from you in the comments section and feel free to follow me and checkout my other post. Up next is Raquelle just click the Next button to continue on the hop and see what awesome talent she has in store for you!

  12. It's wonderful stuff you can mask off images that you have stamped and do blending over them and all kinds of techniques. Just make sure you let it dry thoroughly before trying to remove it or it can tear your paper. Thank you Andrea and it was my pleasure! ☺
