Hello all! Don't fall off your chairs-a non SFF post from me!! It's been a while, but I had Club last weekend with my girls so I have a few cards to share!! Good day in all with the girls, rough on me getting it all together, but that is what happens when you're a procrastinator!!
Here is the first card, made using the Wonderfall set and some other new goodies from the Holiday Mini.
The card base is Crumb Cake. The background is the new Core'dinations Card Stock in Early Espesso. I textured it with the new Woodgrain Embossing Folder, then sanded off the ridges with the new Stampin' Sanding Block.
The leaves are from the Wonderfall set, and there is a Bigz Die that coordinates for cutting them out. But, note I said a Bigz Die, not Framelits. What we did was to cut the leaves first. Next, ink your stamp and lay it block down. Gently set the leaf down on the ink and rub all over it to ink. It works pretty well! The big leaf is Cajun Craze, the long leaf is More Mustard, and the small one is Always Artichoke. Another idea I saw online somewhere, was to make a template (cut the leaves out of a piece of card stock the size of the die), then attached the template to the die with Scotch tape. Then, after you've inked your image, slide it under the template to the desired location and cut. I'll be trying this soon and let you know what I think!!
The saying is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and was stamped in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla, then punched with the Word Window punch. It is layered onto a Cajun Craze Modern Label and attached to the background with dimensionals. Above that we have tied around the base some Linen Thread and Baker's Twine. They are knotted in the center (I did mine separately, but some tied all together) through the new Brushed Bronze Designer Buttons. After securing the knot I added a Mini Glue dot behind it. The leaves are attached above the button with dimensionals. We curled the edges just a little before attaching for extra dimension.
