Here's 2 more fall cards I realized I've not posted. Also just added some gorgeous cards to the Cards by Friends page, so I do hope you'll have time to check those out. It's such a blessing to receive a lovely handmade card in the snail mail, and know someone thought of you, shared their talent to brighten your day. Thanks to all of you!
Forgot which company made the first image, but think it may have been Whipper Snapper*, because I like their designs. #2 definitely is a Whipper Snapper. Both are colored with Copics. On #1, I messed up the center lavender mum with the coloring. Decided to restamp just the flower part of the image, use different colors for the lavender shades, fussy cut it, and plopped it over the floral portion of the already colored remainder. Die cut with a rectangle, did 2 faux mats (traced the die, then traced 2nd time with more margin).
* #1 is an Our Daily Bread cling stamp
Embossing folder is a very old C/B pumpkin motif. Think the sentiment die was from a fall or October set from Taylored Expressions.
#2, was die cut with an older S/B pumpkin die; again, did the faux mat behind the die. The leaf border was an experiment with alcohol inks dropped on glossy card stock. Rather a Bokeh look to it, so just took the applicator tool, that had some wet remaining alcohol ink on it, daubed it around over the Bokeh dots, to smudge it up a bit. Looked like fall colored leaves to me, so die cut a border. Other 2 leaves tucked around are from the soda can metal (believe these leaves are from the Tim Holtz set that is out on the market just now).
There's one more card that I'll share with a scheduled post for tomorrow...I hope you're not sick of the fall/Thanksgiving cards! Sorry, but it's what I've been working on of late, so there it is!
Thanks for joining me, and big hugs to all of you. I hope my UK friends have a dry day. Seems as though you've had a lot of rain. We have a 'clear air' day, and I need to run some errands! Bye!
