Autumn Smile

We're definitely in Idaho Autumn here.  Temperatures are bouncing back and forth, and people in my hometown are already posting photos of snow!  Meanwhile, at my house, my front lawn has been turned into a Halloween play land.  The neighborhood kids all love to come walk through the yard each afternoon, and I get messages from my neighbors of their littles staring out the window at all the blowups.


For some reason, it popped into my head the other day that I really needed to stamp the Flannel Life stamp in Buttercream ink on Green Olive card stock.  So, I did.  I had zero idea where this card was going beyond that step when I started, but all things have to start somewhere, right?

Autumn Colors, and a cozy flannel background make a fun fall card.  Stamped with Fun Stampers Journey Cottage Bouquet, and Flannel Life Stamps.

I chose to make my focal panel using the Cottage Bouquet Stamp Set.  I heat embossed my sentiment first, on a die cut oval, then stamped and created a mask for the first flower (the one colored Raspberry Berry).  I then stamped the additional flowers surrounding the first image.  Using a small dry paint brush, I colored the images with PanPastels.  (I created the orange tone by sandwiching a layer of Raspberry Berry between two layers of Summer Days.) 

Autumn Colors, and a cozy flannel background make a fun fall card.  Stamped with Fun Stampers Journey Cottage Bouquet, and Flannel Life Stamps.

I layered a dry embossed strip of Pumpkin Bread card stock over the flannel background, and tied a piece of Oatmeal Cookie Organza ribbon around the panel, then added my sentiment piece on foam squares.  The card front was adhered to a Whip Cream card base.

Thanks for stopping by!

Much love,
