Hello friends! Tracy McLennon here, and I am loving that Autumn is right around the corner in my neck of the woods. Cooler days, changing leaves and of course pumpkin spice everything. To celebrate in a crafty way, I created this Take Life One Cup At A Time card, with a fall colour scheme.

SUPPLIES: Carta Bella patterned paper, Art Impressions Rubber Stamps, Ranger Archival ink and Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink, Chameleon pens, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares, Creative Photo Corners, Crafty Foam Tape and E-Z Runner Fine, unknown cardstock.

I started my creation by stamping this fabulous Art Impressions image onto white cardstock using black Archival Ink.ARt Impression s Latte Love Stamp Set | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Then I added colour using Chameleon Pens.Chameleon ColorTone Pens | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine I did so using some simple bold shading for more of a cartoon look. Then I simply fussy cut around the images leaving a narrow white border. One Cup at A Time card designed by Tracy McLennon featuring Art Impressions | Creative Scrapbooker MagazineI inked the edges of all of my patterned and cardstock layers using Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink. Using patterned papers from the Hello Fall collection from Carta Bella, I hand cut leaves that were about 1.5” long and 1” wide.

I used 3D foam squares for a little dimension. One Cup at A Time card designed by Tracy McLennon featuring Art Impressions | Creative Scrapbooker MagazineI doubled up the 3D Foam Squares to add the fussy cut stamped image to the middle of the leaf wreath. Then using Crafty Foam tape I added the smaller layered square to the 6×6 kraft card base. I used Ivory Creative Photo Corners to adhere the 5.5×5.5 piece of patterned paper to the card base. One Cup at A Time card designed by Tracy McLennon featuring Art Impressions | Creative Scrapbooker MagazineI stamped the sentiment onto ivory cardstock using the same black Archival Ink and added it to the card using 3D Foam Squares. One Cup at A Time card designed by Tracy McLennon featuring Art Impressions | Creative Scrapbooker MagazineThanks so much for stopping by!
