Today’s share is another Holiday Mini Sneak Peek.
The theme is Autumn. Autumn Splendor is a beautiful stamp set with four images – three leaves and an acorn stamp. The images have wonderful fine lines and great shapes.
The Autumn Meadows designer series paper matches the stamp set and has the following colours in it: Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, More Mustard, Taken with Teal and Very Vanilla. I love how the addition of Taken with Teal to these papers really brighten them up.
I inked up the largest leaf stamp with More Mustard craft ink. Then using sponge daubers, I dabbed on craft ink in Chocolate Chip and Taken with Teal. After huffing to re-moisten, I stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock.
To create the Teal border. I ran a piece of the Autumn Meadows dsp through the Big Shot using the Lattice die. I then cut the design down to fit onto the card.
Chocolate Chip ribbon is wrapped around a piece of More Mustard cardstock and adhered over the Lattice.
I inserted three small Very Vanilla Grommets and set them using a bone folder to fold down the prongs.
Then, using a paper-piercing tool, I made holes for the 5/16" jumbo brads and inserted a Chocolate Chip brad into the center of each grommet.
I was surpised by how much I loved the Autumn Meadows designer series paper. The photo below shows all 12 designs included in the package. Which is your favourite?
