Nicole here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog sharing my jumpstart on fall – this gorgeous fall card. OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already I’m blogging fall leaves! I really couldn’t help myself. I mean… you know me! This week I am blogging for Xyron where Newton’s Nook are teaming up for some… AWESOMENESS! I thought I would share my simple card here too.
Xyron just happens to be a sponsor of the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnivals in Edmonton and Calgary this fall! A huge thank you to this awesome company for sponsoring. This event would not be possible without our amazing sponsors! Registration is open – CLICK HERE – you won’t want to miss out!
I love fall leaves so of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps. Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal! So many creative ways to make stuff.
Building the Card
I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.
I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils. These are great for watercoloring too. Yep, it happens from time to time… I fussy cut the pumpkins out.
I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Ranger Oxide Inks. Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf… yep, more fussy cutting. Oi…
More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Station. I stamped the mini leaves to create a border and popped up the fancy maple leave. There’s little pumpkins are run through the Xyron Sticker Maker and ready to attack to the small tag.
I love pumpkins!
Loving the ripped tag.
I do love some fall colours!Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Fall card. The leaves will be changing soon and I love it!
Don’t forget The Great Scrapbook Carnival Registration starts today for Edmonton and Aug 2nd for Calgary! Check out the classes for both events, crop and shop! I have 2 classes I will be teaching for Calgary… hope to see you there and getting inky!
BTW… I love this card layout so much I cased it from my blog bestie A Blog called Wanda! It’s OK, I told her I was totally going to make one!
Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone!
