Fall Is In The Air Card

Happy Sunday!  It's a bright, albeit brisk, early autumn day here.  The perfect day for playing in my studio, creating yet another fall card.  I used an Impression Obsession stamp set and die.
IO Stamps/Dies:  Leaf Set clear stamp set WP684
                          French Text CAC CC151
                          Branch DIE007-L

I used ivory card stock to make an A2 card.  I used the A Colorful Life Designs Leaf Set 1 stencil with brush applicators to add distress inks to the card front.  

**NOTE:  See my previous blog post HERE for a video link on how I did this, along with another card idea using the stencil.

I did add one more step to the way I did the technique in the video.  Do you see the script on some of the leaves in this card?  I just kept the stencil on after adding the color, and stamped the French Text stamp over it before removing.  Voila! Script!

I cut the Branch die twice from ivory card stock, and added distress inks, then attached them to the card front.

I stamped the verse from the Leaf Set  clear stamp set with rusty hinge distress ink, added it to some rust card stock, then added it to the card with foam tape for dimension.  

So, for the inside I used this fabulous layering Leaf Set from Impression Obsession.  I used the same colors on the stamps as I had used through the stencil, stamping them randomly, some full strength, and some second and third generation.

I hope you're having a relaxing and peaceful day, or a fun-filled active day, whichever you prefer.  I'm afraid to go downstairs, as our team (Buffalo Bills) were behind at half time.  I'm not hearing any yelling down there, so I'm assuming it's not going well.  Or it could be.  I'll find out soon enough. 

I am adding my card to these challenges:
Little Red Wagon - Fall it
Mod Squad Challenge - A time for giving
