Autumn Days

I loved what Dawn Olchefske did with this stamp as shown on her blog HERE (click "continue reading" to access this link).  And I liked the card so much that I decided to just change it up slightly by using one of Stampin’ Up’s embossing folders.  Isn’t this pretty?

I seem to be on a White cardstock kick lately!  But I really like the clean look of the card, accented a bit by a different color, in this case, Stampin’ Up’s! Chocolate Chip.

 

 

 

 

 

  • The stamp was colored with Stampin’ Up’s stampin’ write markers.  Simply color the pine cones/stem with a Chocolate Chip marker and the needles with an Old Olive stampin’ write marker.  Both of these colors are part of the Earth Elements color family.  Markers can be purchased singly or in a pack of all 12 colors (item #105539).
  • After coloring, it was stamped on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, then punched out with a 1 3/8" circle punch.  It was placed on top of the white square of cardstock with dimensionals.  If you don’t know, Dimensionals are little pads that are sticky on both sides, which when placed under a piece of the card, allow you to raise it up to give it some ‘dimension’. 
  • I love both ribbons used here – the double-stitched Chocolate Chip ribbon as well as the striped Chocolate Chip ribbon!  The striped piece was used as just an accent in the bow – after making the first tie on the double-stitched ribbon, place the piece of striped ribbon on top, then finish tieing the double-stitched ribbon.  Cool effect.
