Simon Says Stamp has a number of new, fabulous stamp sets that they released for STAMPtember. I saw this set from The Greeting Farm and it was so cute I just had to have it. The images and sentiments are everything fall, which is my favorite season!
As soon as this stamp set showed up in my mailbox, I grabbed my supplies and went to town stamping and coloring the images!
First, I used my Misti and my Brutus Monroe Detail ink to stamp out the girl. Brutus Monroe's Detail Ink is safe to use with alcohol markers, and since I used my StyleFile markers for this image, I didn't want the ink to run.
After the girl was colored in and fussy cut, I took a black marker and ran it along the outside edges to hide any white paper. This is a great trick for making your fussy cutting look perfect!
I kept the card clean and simple because I really wanted this girl to stand out. I made a simple background by stamping the leaf from the set in a random order in the bottom right corner. I used Brutus Monroe Embossing Ink along with their Gilded Embossing powder.
Then, I stamped a few more leaves, colored them, and cut them out as well. These colored leaves I used to give a little more visual interest around our fall girl.
The girl and the leaves are both popped up on some foam adhesive. I also added a few gold sequins for some more subtle color.
The sentiment is stamped with Brutus Monroe ink as well. I just mounted the sentiment stamp on my Misti and stamped it several times to get that nice dark black.
Finally, I took an A2 sized card base in kraft, and mounted my white panel on it using some kids' craft foam to give some dimension.
This is such a simple card, but the colors, the images, and the sentiment all works together to create such a fun fall scene!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed today's card. Please take a look at some of the products I used!
