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.
