Today I am more in the Autumn mode but not as far as all the pumpkin and orange color combos that are so popular this time of year...today I wanted to try something with neutrals and see if I can still stay within that autumn feel. I pulled out my neutral papers, Basic Black, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate ink pads. I also added a bit of Sahara Sand in for a pop of fall color. I love the stamp set Wetlands by Stampin Up! This stamp set is so very versatile.
For the "Fall" aspect, I used the Big Shots Autumn Accents Die - this die is also one of my favorites. I wanted to do something different though since everyone was either stamping or cutting them out and applying them to their cards. I also didn't want it to over whelm the "Wetlands" Stamps. So I made a mask.
I always make more than one card (usually 6) because if I only made one...I would want to keep it as a keepsake - cards are like virtual little hugs, you need to give them, not store them in a box.
Here is the finished piece.....well almost. I did take the acorn from the die cut and hung it from the button. Hope you are getting your "Fall" on. If you need any of these supplies, visit my website at www.donnademko.stampinup.net and order yours today!
