I picked up some of the colors from the Color Me Autumn designer series paper, except instead of Sahara Sand, I used Baked Brown Sugar. I love how all the accessories coordinate – the Autumn Wooden Elements, the Color Me Autumn designer washi tape and the stamp set.
See the little bow around the Mossy Meadow stamped greenery? That’s some burlap ribbon that I, um, “de-weaved.” “Un-weaved?” Whatever. I ripped the sides off the ribbon, then pulled individual strands out of the ribbon to use as thread.
Lots of club members asked where the die cut or punch was for the sentiment banner. That would be called, “paper snips.” We’ve gotten really spoiled with the thinlits and framelits dies, haven’t we? But since this had straight edges, I thought it would be easy enough to cut out.
To color the little wooden element, I dunked it in a Crushed Curry stamp pad. I rubbed it, ink side down, on my scratch paper a little, just to make sure the ink was dry before I adhered it to the card.
Hope you’re enjoying the weather! It’s cooler, but not chilly here. We didn’t have a lot of falling leaves until I decided to clean the pool for the last time before we close it. Three hours later, the wind started up a bit, and the trees emptied their leaves. Into the pool. Of course. Fortunately, they were pretty dry, so most went into the skimmer basket. Mother Nature must have heard me say, “I don’t really enjoy being outside all that much.” I was just kidding Mother N! I love the outdoors.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
