When looking through stamps for today’s project, I came across the Life Is Beautiful stamp set.  I have not used it previously.  And when I saw the stamp of the birds and birdhouse, I saw a birdfeeder.  We have several feeders and always have Cardinals around them.  So I am pretending the house is actually a feeder.


I live north of Atlanta and I had commented to my husband yesterday that with all the leaves still on the trees, it did not seem like December.  So I went with the Fall look of the leaves to match my imaginary bird feeder!

To get the multicolored leaves I used a reinker and baby wipe technique.  I folded up a baby wipe on my silicone mat and added reinkers in Mango Melody, Cherry Cobbler, and Cajun Craze.  I did a drop of each scattered around.  Because the stamp itself is one of the Distinctive stamps, it made an even more rough look to the leaves.  I was happy with how they came out.

And yes I made it look even more like a Fall card by using this sheet of the Plaid Tidings Designer Series   Paper.  I had to though.  It matched the leaves perfectly!

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please come back tomorrow for another new project.
