I Heart Fall

My favorite season of all is fall.  Since moving to California 4 years ago, I have really missed seeing the leaves changing color.  Lawn Fawn's latest release has a beautiful set of stamps that got me in the fall spirit (I just had to use my imagination a bit!).

I started by using watercolor paper to give the card some texture and it works really well with the Distress Inks.  Then, I stamped using Argyle Backdrops with Distress ink.    I then used the Forest Border die to use as a stencil and used a foam applicator to apply Distress Inks...I really liked how it turned out.  The Sweater Weather set has a stamp for the trunk of the tree and a separate stamp for the leaves which makes it super easy to stamp the leaves any color that you want.  It also has a small leaf stamp so I used it to put some leaves on the ground.  I love the sentiment included in the set...so sweet! I finished off the card using some Lawn Trimmings to make a loopy bow and put a wood veneer leaf on top.  I colored the leaf using the same ink pad I used to stamp the leaves on the tree. 

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Deb, do you send these lovely cards out to people, or keep them? They are so creative.

    1. I usually give them to someone eventually. Sometimes I make cards to try out new products and techniques, but sometimes I make them because of a specific occasion. Thanks!
