Hey there! The card I'm sharing with you today is probably one of my most favorite I've created in a long time! It's not that I'm not pleased with the cards I create and share with you, I just really love how this one turned out! I used the Soft Seedlings stamp set and the Hello Harvest bundle from the July-December Mini catalog
One of the keys to this card is to stamp everything on the 4" x 5 1/4" Very Vanilla layer BEFORE embossing with the Leaf Fall 3D folder.
I started by inking the leaf/seedling image with Pumpkin Pie ink, then used the edge of the Cajun Craze ink pad to drag color around the edges. I breathed on the stamp to re-moisten the ink before stamping on the Very Vanilla layer. Without re-inking, I then breathed on the stamp again to stamp in the upper right corner of the layer.
I stamped the greeting from Soft Seedlings with Cajun Craze ink, then I put the layer inside the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder. To make this folder work correctly you need the Specialty Plate to layer on top of the folder without a cutting plate beneath it to crank through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. I have included the gray Specialty Plate in the clickable supply list below.
The thing I love most about this card is the pumpkin! I used the same ink dragging technique on the leaf stamp again, then stamped on a 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" square of Very Vanilla. I then stamped the pumpkin from Hello Harvest over the leaf with Cajun Craze and cut it with the coordinating Rustic Pumpkin Die. I mounted it on the card front with a dimensional in each "corner" of the pumpkin, then stacked two dimensionals on top of each other in the center to give it a bit of a rounded look. The magic really happened for me when I decided to paint some Clear Wink of Stella over the pumpkin! It intensified the colors of the leaf, as well as gave it some shimmer!
I finished the card front with randomly placed Brushed Brass Butterflies and Champagne Rhinestones.
On the inside layer I repeated the ink-dragging technique to ink and stamp the leaves again, and then stamped another Soft Seedlings sentiment. I stamped the leaves on the Very Vanilla envelope too.
