Free Friday!

I love autumn, I love leaves and I love all of the rich, fall colors. Out of all of Stampin' Up!'s color collections, the "Regals" are by far my favorite. Look how easy it was to create a flower out of leaves from the "Wonderfall Stamp Set":
 

I cut out my leaves first using the "Autumn Leaves Die" and "More Mustard Cardstock" and using my "Stamp-A-Ma-Jig", inked my leaf image in "Cajun Craze Ink" and carefully positioned my leaf image so that they all came out perfectly. Awesome tools equals awesome stampin'! When I arranged my leaves to form my flower, I glued them all down with one "Stampin' Dimensional" on the left-hand side of each leaf. The button covers up the center:


Once you have all the leaves cut and stamped, this card comes together rather quickly. I hope you enjoy your up-coming weekend...I always do!

  4. I love the simplicity of this card! Plus the color combo is very interesting. It reminds me of looking at leaves of the Autumn trees as the sun rises! The blue sky with the bright and dark colors of the leaves - very neat!
