CCMC Saturday Blog Hop!

We have a neat theme today for our Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. How about some "Autumn Leaves"? Do you like my card and how I added leaves to the Jar Of Love stamp set?

The leaves are from the Vintage Leaves stamp set. I inked them using Delightful Dijon Ink first and then did the "Rock n Roll Technique" by rolling the edges in Pumpkin Pie Ink. I then cut the leaves out using the Leaflets Framelits Dies. Oh and one more step before I glued them in place. I colored the leaves with Clear Wink Of Stella:

If you take a peek at the bottom of my stamped layer, you'll see that I water-colored a shadow for the jar. I added Smoky Slate Ink and Pumpkin Pie Ink with my Aqua Painter and then added little hints of the Clear Wink Of Stella:

Here are the measurements for my layers:

  • Card Base: Pumpkin Pie Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score and fold in the center at 5-1/2".
  • Layer #2: Delightful Dijon Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4".
  • Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 4-3/4" x 3-1/2".
Card Supplies:
  • Stamps: Vintage Leaves, Jar Of Love
  • Inks: Old Olive, Smoky Slate, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Sky, Delightful Dijon
  • Cardstock: Delightful Dijon, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
  • Accessories: Linen Thread
  • Tools: Leaflets Framelits Dies, Stampin' Dimensionals, Clear Wink Of Stella, Aqua Painter
