Open House French Foliage

My belated World Card Making Day Open Houses were today. Great stamping day!!!  LOVE it when I have a house full of stampers!!  As someone said on their way out the door, maybe we need to do this more often :)  Here is card one from today.


My new favorite fall set! These leaves blend SOO well together. Colors are Elegant Eggplant, Garden Green and More Mustard, a Color Coach combo. Card base is Elegant Eggplant. Background layer is Naturals Ivory. We stamped it first with leaves in Elegant Eggplant, More Mustard and Garden Green. Bare areas were filled in with River Rock 'spots'. The edges were sponged with River Rock before texturing in the Big Shot with the Square Lattice folder. The saying is from All Holidays. I also had an alternate saying available, the "Sending Thanksgiving Wishes with Gratitude & Appreciation for you" from the Seasonal Sentiments set in the Holiday Mini. For the saying, we stamped it on Naturals Ivory in Elegant Eggplant and then added two Mustard leaves and some River Rock spots. The Very Vanilla wide grosgrain ribbon was knotted around the background layer. I added a safety pin to the knot from the Vintage Trinkets because it needed just a little something more. The saying was layered onto a Garden Green layer and attached with dimensionals over the ribbon. Quick and easy card!

Stay tuned this week for the other 3 cards done today! Hopefully back to regular stamping this week, once I get everything put away anyway!! :)
