Fall Foliage with My Favorite Things

Hello there! It’s Kristie Larsen here again. Remember THIS POST when I talked about this great Fall Foliage stamp set from My Favorite Things?  I wanted to see if I could make 4 different seasons of cards using just one stamps set. Well its October now, so I wanted to share some cards using this set as it was originally intended. Here is is how I’m doing fall foliage with My Favorite Things.

Products used in these projects:

I also started with our new sketch for the month. Here she is!

I started by die cutting a plethora of pieces out of white water-colour paper. You know me, you can never have too many die cuts ready! I then inked each image using two or more distress ink colours and spritzed them with water before stamping them down.

You can see here the difference just one or more sprays of water makes for an image! (If you want more detail, use less water.)

I stamped each of them differently. Some with more or less water but mostly the same colours together for each similar image.

Next I stamped and embossed the sentiment in gold and added some swirls in Tim Holtz Pumice Stone.

Then it was just a matter of adding the die cuts where I wanted the wind to blow them!

I finished it off with some sparkle gold enamel dots.

And of course since I had left over die cuts so I got to throw together a second card for fun!

I love that the images in this stamp set are so beautiful you can just pile them up and make a card. Which is exactly what I did.

Almost like they have fallen straight off the tree into your yard. In a lovely bunch!  I added some details with a white pen. Dots on the buds and lines for the leaves.

That’s all for me today. I hope you liked this rendition of My Favorite Things Fall Foliage stamp set. Next up: Winter!

Thanks for stopping in today. Hope you have a crafty day!
