Autumn Gifts


Good morning everyone. I went to this wonderful store in our area (Arnie's Arts and Crafts please check out their site.) and found this beautiful stamp by Penny Black called 'Autumn Gifts'. Well, actually I didn't find it, it jumped into my basket, and what can you do when a stamp does that. NOTHING!!! I agree. So it had to come home with me. :) Sorry I got carried away.
I seem to have found another favorite color. I love Cherry Cobbler as you can probably tell as of late. It is such a great color for fall and winter! I have had this beautiful designer paper from Basic Grey called Cranberry Sauce for a long time. It is from the Wassail collection and even though it is a Christmas paper I thought that it worked great for this image.
I stamped my image on Georgia Pacific White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with my Copic Markers. I'm sorry but I don't have the list of colors for you. I used so many different markers it would have filled the page by itself. I layered that on Cherry Cobbler and poped it up with Stampin Dimensionals. I embossed the More Mustard layer with Swiss Dots embossing folder and punched the bottom edge with the leaf border punch from Fiskars. I adhered that onto the designer paper and layered that on more Cherry Cobbler. The corners are book corners from Bonnies Best, they have such awesome embellishments. I added some Summer Sunrise ribbon from Papertrey Ink and then layered everything onto the More Mustard card base.
