Heartfelt Creations + ODBDSLC32

Can't believe I actually got my card for ODBDSLC32 already done.  Usually I'm getting it done at the last minute.  But when I saw that this week's challenge was to use leaves on your project I knew exactly what I was going to do.... use some of my Heartfelt Creations stamps!  I just love the set Open Falling Leaves (HCPC 3334) and I was itching to use the Oak Leaf Background stamp (HCPC 3332).  So, I combined them with a sentiment from the ODBD set Lift Up Our Hands.

I applied various different Stampin Up! inks (More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie & Old Olive) to the background stamp and then stamped it on Vintage Cream cardstock.  I did the same treatment to the single maple leaf from the Open Falling Leaves set and trimmed it out.  The sentiment was stamped in Pumpkin Pie and then matted with some Old Olive cardstock.  The sentiment was adhered to the background stamped piece, some rust silk ribbon was tried around the piece and then the single leaf was attached.  A few rhinestones completed the card.

Thanks for taking a peek... hope you are enjoying your fall!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft & vintage cream; Ink:  SU! Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie & More Mustard; Stamps:  Heartfelt Creations:  Oak Leaf Background & Open Falling Leaves; Ribbon:  May Arts Rust Silk; Kaiser rhinestones
