Fall is in the air! Don’t you just love the short days, comfort food, colorful leaves, sweater weather and pumpkin spice? I got so inspired today by a stamp set by Newton’s Nook Designs called “Fall-ing For you” that I decided to create a fall card. This card is also my entry for the new Simon Says Stamp Challenge – Autumn.
I started out by stamping my image on Neenah Solar White card stock with my stamping tool, and colored my images using my Copic markers.
I went ahead to die-cut my card panel and mat using my new favorite die by KatScrappiness – the “Double Stitched Rectangle Nesting Dies”. These nesting dies are so versatile that I am finding myself using them in all of my paper crafting projects. I also distressed my smaller rectangle piece using Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink by Tim Holtz, and used my watercolor brush to sprinkle water on my card stock to give it a distressed look.
I wanted to have some fall leaves for my card and so I decided to use my Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves die, die-cutting a bunch of fall leaves in different colors, including some vellum.
Here is my card design for today. Don’t you just love fall? I love the simplicity of this card and I hope I have inspired you today to create something beautiful, or just go outside, take a leisure-walk, and enjoy the fall weather! Have an amazing day!
