It appears that Fall weather is indeed upon us! I'm wondering what the leaves will be like this year, with the dry summer we had.
I got the chance to play in my craft room this weekend. I tried some neat techniques that you'll see over the next few days.
This is one of the cards I created, using one of my new favorite colors, Blackberry Bliss:
I love the way Blackberry Bliss contrasts with Hello Honey!
This card was quite easy to make, yet effective. Using the For All Things Stamp set and Hello Honey, I stamped the watercolor block stamp on Whisper White. I overlapped the background using the bundle of grasses stamp and Blackberry Bliss. Adding the sentiment completed the stamping portion of the card.
I mounted the Whisper White matte on a Blackberry Bliss matte and then secured the ends of Blackberry Bliss ribbon to the back of the matte, along the right side. I then tied a separate bow on the ribbon and positioned it where I thought it looked best. This is a good trick to use to get a nice bow with the flexibility to change its position if you need to do so.
Finally, I secured the mattes to a Hello Honey card front.
I like the way it turned out. What do you think? Have you made any Fall cards?
