Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set #stampinup

20210806_075723

The season is changing!! Create autumn designer paper yourself!! These colors are: Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Merry Merlot, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake; Old Olive Marker for splatter. Base is a full sheet of Very Vanilla Card Stock.

 

20210806_100104

Choose medium to small images, like this lovely Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set #153365. Start with the larger images and stamp randomly, including off the edges. Fill in with smaller images. Splatter any unstamped areas with a waterbased marker. Done.

 

20210807_080358

Cut your designer paper and create cards! One of my easy, eye-catching layouts is this triangluar cut: cut paper 5-1/2 x 3", then cut corner to corner to create two triangles. Assemble as shown and stamp your sentiment in the center on the base card. Base card is Crushed Curry color.

20210807_080416
