Fall is my very favorite season of the year. I love the colors and the crispness in the air. I love wearing sweaters and boots...but I digress! Colors -- a lot of deep pigment hues. Think about espresso, pumpkin, mustard, eggplant, avacado. My stomach is rumbling a bit! Is that why I love fall colors so much? I digress again.
However, I did not have the fall DSP in the mini so I did my clear embossing on Very Vanilla cardstock and then sponged Elegant Eggplant, Peach Parfait, More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler, and Always Avacado. When you sponge the different colors, really pounce it like you would if you were stenciling.
The stamp set is the new French Foliage Stamp Set from the new Holiday Mini. I took my largest acrylic block from the colletion and arranged the three different leaf stamps on the large block so I only had to stamp once. This is great when you want to do a large quantity of the same design and you want them to look identical.
The sentiment, Life is Beautiful, is from the Style Beautiful stamp set. I punched it out using the new Decorative Label punch from the Holiday Mini in More Mustard card stock and sponged Always Avocado around the edges. Then I punched a 2 1/2" circle and ran it through the crimper tool. Last, Very Vanilla
5/8" satin ribbon.
