Fantasy Stampers - In the Fall

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I am so glad it is the weekend. I know I am only part time but I feel like I have been doing two jobs this week.  I am going to have to get something sorted out. I hope that you have had a better week than me. Today we are off visiting my husband's parents it is his dad's birthday in the week.

The new challenge starts today on the Fantasy Stampers Challenge blog the theme is In the Fall. That just has to mean leaves doesn't it? I was so thrilled when the Crafter's Inspiration magazine Issue 11 came with a set of leaf stamps with matching dies.


I created the background by stamping the leaves with Perfect Medium and then heat embossing them. After that I added some Distress Ink. 


I cut an aperture in the background and I made a frame for it. I do like my apertures to have a frame. The leaves were again stamped with Perfect Medium and this time heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I used Distress Ink to add colour to the leaves. They were then cut out with the matching dies. The central stamp is one by Visible Image. The ribbon was in my stash with the bow in place. 


I did enjoy making this card Autumn colours are so beautiful. Have a great weekend. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
