2020 Aug-Dec Mini Catalog (Holiday), Seasonal - Fall

More Leaves!

It’s Monday and my weather is still warm and certainly not the crisp cool weather of Autumn  (or do you say Fall?)  I’m never sure which one of those words is going to come out….but I’m back again sharing my last “leaf” card for a bit.  Last week I showed you a card made using the Baby Wipe Technique for stamping.  You can see that post here: Baby Wipe Technique with Love of Leaves  Since I had that perfectly good baby wipe still loaded with ink….I stamped a few extra leaves from the Love of Leaves Stamp Set  and used them to make this card. 412D8EBA-5E6E-48E5-909A-D44AAF3925CD Did you notice the little “fake tear” look of my Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper?  I know that there are lots of card makers out there who “tear” their paper to create a shabby chic look to the their cards.  And I like it….but for some reason I just can’t bring myself to tear my paper.  I did it once on a card HERE: Sailing Home – Early Father’s Day and that was enough for me.  One of the dies in this Ornate Borders Dies caught my eye…it’s the fourth one down….so I decided to try it to see what it did. F37ABF7A-0E71-4E48-AF84-4CB23E4EFE4D It made a nice little “fake tear” So to help bring it out a little bit, I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock – the same color as the card base and die cut my “tear” again.  I then just layered one on top of the other.  It looks a little like torn paper, but without the rough edges.  It was a great alternative.  But if you want to tear your paper, I would put both pieces that you are tearing (Desginer Series Paper and Cardstock) together and tear them at the same time to make the layering just a bit easier. D747190C-9676-40D8-A0BF-78DA89506B4E The leaves were stamped using the same Baby Wipe that I had inked with four colors of Stampin’ Up’s Ink Refills – Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry.  All those colors are from the Regal’s color group.  By placing my stamp on different parts of the ink blot, I got different results for my leaves.  You’ll notice that the leaf in the middle doesn’t have any Shaded Spruce, but got more of the Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry colors with a little Cherry Cobbler thrown into the mix. .  But I must have inked in close to the same spot for the top and bottom leaf as they look very similar! DC9EDFCF-1A5B-4E53-8756-0814E8E9C2CB That is what makes using the Baby Wipe Technique fun….you never know what the results will be until you lift the stamp off the cardstock and you can can see the image below.
