Here in Atlanta it actually feels a little like Fall today. That is a welcome change for us. So I have a super cute Fall card to show you. I have used the much overlooked Count My Blessings stamp set. At first glance this set may say Fall, but I believe most of it can be used any time of year.
My color inspiration was from the acorns and I chose fairly traditional Fall colors. I did use my Aqua Painter with Pumpkin Pie for the tips of the leaves and then feathered that into the old olive. The background is Soft Suede ink stamped onto Soft Suede card stock, I sometimes forget to do the simple things to make our own DSP, so to speak. It really is quick and easy.
This card is not at all difficult to do, even with the water coloring. More layers sometimes make it look like more I do believe.
A quick tip for the ribbon accent: I cut a strip of ribbon and tape each end to the back of my panel. Then cut a smaller piece and simply tie it around the attached strip. I get a pretty close to perfect little knot and do not need extra fingers for attempting to tie the ribbon pieces in front and yet keep it tight around the panel. I never could do that very well!!
Thank you so much for visiting today! I love hearing from you and I hope you will try a quick project like this one. The measurements I used are below and the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page. I hope you have a great day!
