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.
I started my creation by stamping this fabulous Art Impressions image onto white cardstock using black Archival Ink. Then I added colour using Chameleon Pens. 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. I 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. Then I added them to a simple layered cardstock base, kraft 4.75×4.75, and ivory 5×5. I used 3D foam squares for a little dimension. I 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. I stamped the sentiment onto ivory cardstock using the same black Archival Ink and added it to the card using 3D Foam Squares. Thanks so much for stopping by!
