happy fall...

Hello friends!!  Hope you have been having a good week!!  No complaints here.   We have been having unusually nice weather here in the PacNW so it hardly seems like fall is right around the corner, but it is!!   I have a little card to share that I made for the current Reverse Confetti Sketch for You to Try.

On Wednesday I received some happy mail in the form of brand spankin' new and oh so yummy Reverse Confetti stamps!!   So I just had to use one of the sets for my SFYTT offering.  I started by die cutting a piece of kraft card stock using a die from the SU! Apothecary Accents die set.  I then trimmed a piece of patterned paper from the Crate Paper Farmhouse pad to fit behind and adhered it to the card base.  A piece of patterned paper from the Teresa Collins Fabrications pad was trimmed per the sketch, stamped with the sentiment (using Hero Art's Cup o' Joe ink) from the RC Forever Fall set and the edges distressed.  The fun woodgrain image from the same set was stamped on cream cardstock (using Hero Arts Butter Bar ink), trimmed down, inked with Ranger Old Paper distress ink and the edges distressed.  Finally I stamped the cute little acorn image from the set 3 times using kraft ink and 3 times using Hero Arts Pale Tomato ink.  The kraft acorns were trimmed out entirely and just the caps on the red ones and then adhered together.   Everything was then layered according to the sketch.  The entire piece was then adhered to the card base using foam dimensionals. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock PTI kraft & cream; Stamps:  Reverse Confetti Forever Fall; Inks:  Hero Arts, Ranger & Stampin Up!; Patterned Paper:  Crate Paper & Teresa Collins; Dies:  Stampin Up!
