Greetings, Stampers! I've definitely had leaves on my brain lately, and the leaves haven't even begun to turn colors yet in my part of New York. I'm not complaining; I'll take the warm weather over the cold! I used another one of my favorite leaf stamp sets today, Gently Falling.
The color combination by Dynamic Duos this week reminded me of this card which I made for Thanksgiving last year. It was my favorite Thanksgiving card at the time, so I thought I'd recreate it using current Stampin' Up Products. I substituted Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper, a Naturals Button, the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and the greeting, which is from the Pursuit of Happiness Stamp Set.
I used Pool Party Ink to ink up my step one stamp from Gently Falling. Then, I rolled the edges of the stamp (a technique called Rock and Roll) in Crumb Cake Ink to soften the edges a bit. Step two was stamped right on top with Soft Suede Ink. Easy!
