Falling for Leaves for IRBH

Welcome to the InKing Royalty Blog Hop for August! For today’s card, I used a brand new bundle from the 2018 Holiday Catalog called Falling For Leaves (Falling For Leaves stamp set and Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies.) There are some spectacular images in this bundle. I used one of the simplest ones today. Don’t you just love sneak peeks?

This year’s IRBH themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “Dog Days Are Over.” You can hear the song at the bottom of this post. While we still feel the heat from a long, hot summer, August is a perfect time of year to start planning our Fall-themed cards. The projects in our hop will showcase Autumn, back-to-school and warm colors – you might even see a dog or two! We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Granny Apple Green card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Basic Black CS cut to 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″
  • Share What You Love Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 3-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
  • Basic Black CS cut to 2-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 2-1/4″ x 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card

Stamped with the Falling For Leaves stamp set:

  • leaf image in Memento Black ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS (3 times)
  • sentiment in Memento black ink onto the 2-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ Whisper White CS layer
  • NOTE: I only used part of the sentiment stamp. I put the stamp on my Stamparatus and colored only the part I wanted to use using a Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker, then stamped it onto the CS.

Bright & Cheery Rooted in Nature Card

You are wonderful! Aren’t there some folks you want to say that to? That’s one of the sentiment isn the Rooted in Nature stamp set, which is part of a lovely suite of products, including the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies and Nature’s Twine. You really have to touch this twine to appreciate it. It’s a bit heavier than regular twine, and it has great body to it, so it’s really easy to work with. 

You may think I used a piece of the coordinating Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper on this card, but no. I created my own DSP by stamping leaves in a few colors onto Whisper White card stock.
