Fall is such a fun time of the year. I love seeing the beauty of the leaves changing colors and going for walks in the cooler temperatures!! My card today celebrates fall.
I began by stamping the lady scarecrow in Memento Black ink on white CS, coloring her with Copics and die cutting her with some nesties. She's layered on some die cut Bravo Burgundy CS. The background was created by stamping the bottom of the So Saffron layer with the new Silhouette Corn Stalk in VersaMark ink, then I embossed the top of the panel with the CB swirls folder. The strip of Bravo Burgundy was punched with a border and then the ribbon was added. A leaf button and some baker's twine were added to the ribbon. The Autumn Greetings was stamped with black ink and die cut with the same type of nesties to complete the card. Hope you like it. I think this scarecrow is so cute and can be colored to match whatever paper/design you're going with!
Thanks for stopping by today.

Fall has arrived in Georgia, with cool night and mild days. It's my favorite time of the year. I love sleeping under a quilt the was made by my mother and her sisters, it so warm and comforting. There really is nothing like a homemade quilt.
For my card today I used the new Designer Quilt Square from DRS designs. I stamped it three times with black ink and colored it with Copic markers then fussy cut. These were layered onto a dark eggplant paper.
I stamped the Daily Thread Greeting and added some paper piercing and pen stitching. The background was embossed in a embossing folder.
Have a wonderful day,

I used a stamp aligner to stamp nine Designer Quilt Squares on white cardstock then used a paper piercer and ruler to pierce all the holes you see thread in. I used embroidery floss to sew around the edges and then to make all those French knots. Next, I die cut this pretty purple oval shaped panel and foam taped it to the quilt. I stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of white and sponged some orange Brilliance on before removing the die. The ribbon for my bow is actually where I got my inspiration for the colors of my quilt.. Hope you like it!

and here's where I cut apart my stamp... (hint... when I cut any stamp apart I usually add a notch or zigzag so when I want to put the stamp back together they fit together like puzzle pieces)
I started by putting just the biggest section on my acrylic mount and inking it with a taupe dye ink
I changed the angle of my card making the stamped image straight and then filled the card above the single stamped image leaving about 1/8" in between each image (hint - I always stamp ABOVE the first image so I can see where to place it easier) I did have to rotate it half way through to finish
After choosing a green dye ink as my second color I once again stamped it at an angle in the center, crossing the taupe lines
and again changed the angle of my card to stamp above the center green image leaving 1/8" between images
till I filled the card again!
Now it was time to remove the widest part of the plaid stamp from my acrylic mount and replace it with the smallest piece.
till I stamped over all of them...
