Crisp Autumn Day

Hello fellow stampers!  Thanks for joining me today.  As always, I appreciate you.

Today I am showcasing Stampin Ups Love of Leaves.  Following along with Karen Buttery’s video tutorial for a “kissed” technique, I was inspired to order this stamp set.  Here I am a year later, inking up my stamp set for the very first time.  I must admit, I’m bad at desperately needing wanting a stamp set, only to leave it uninked for a very long time.  Do you do the same thing?  Please tell me you do.

Karen Buttery’s work really speaks to me.  No, not in the paranormal sense, rather it makes my heart go pitter patter.  As my girlfriend just told me, she sees my style as being busy.  I’ll admit, I do love detailed work.  Try as I may, I cannot achieve a clean and simple look.

Following along with Karen’s tutorial, this is what turned out.  I created a background like Karen’s, and then created a few more backgrounds, but left a lot of space for me to cut individual leaves with coordinating dies.  I actually made three cards.  My motto is why make just one card, when you can make multiples.  This leaves me with cards already on-hand to give out.  Easy peasy.

Thank you for stopping by!
