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.

Ready for Christmas Glimmer Tree Card

The theme of the swap at our July Candy Hearts team meeting was Christmas in July. For mine, I used the Ready for Christmas stamp set, Christmas Staircase Dies, Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper, and the new and improved Glimmer Paper.

If you’ve followed me for a while, you know how I feel about glitter. I like the look of it, but I abhor the mess it makes. Well, no more! The fine glitter is actually milled into the new Glimmer Paper. I cut it on my trimmer and die cut it on my Big Shot, and I never saw a single piece of glitter come off the paper. Not one! I rubbed my thumb across it and nothing came off! I think you’ll be seeing more glittery bits on my projects from now on!
