Nancy here today. It is so hot that I am already thinking of fall as you can see with these two cards using products from the July release.
I cut three sizes of the More Maple Leaves dies from saffron spice and honey nut cardstock, then used my finger to lightly apply Coffee Beans and Autumn Leaves Paper Glaze Luxe for a bit of sparkle and shine. I used the A2 Scene Building Rectangle Two die to cut tangy orange cardstock twice, layered together, then attached over a patterned paper background creating a shaker in the upper right opening filled with pieces from the new Orange Bottlecap Flowers Sequin Mix. I stamped the sentiment from the Fancy Autumn Sentiments set with Versamark white heat embossed, cut out with the matching die and attached it to a white woodgrain background. Lastly, I wrapped cording around the image piece, added a few more sequins and attached to the card front.
Despite the fact that this is a clean and simple card, I managed to use quite a few Picket Fence Studios products. I started out by using the largest die from the More Oak Leaves to cut from three different colors of cardstock. I rubbed some Coffee Beans Paper Glaze Luxe onto the yellow gold leaf, Autumn Leaves Paper Glaze Luxe on the orange red leaf and Golden Sparkle Paper Glitz on the green leaf for a bit of sparkle. To prepare the background I turned the Slim Line Shadow of Leaves Stencil horizontally and lightly blended antique linen oxide ink onto the card front using a brush from the Life Changing Blender Brushes set. The sentiment from the Window Seat to the World was stamped directly onto the card front using rich cocoa ink. I attached the trio of leaves, gluing only at the bottom, nd anchoring with a button. A random scattering of sequins and clay pieces from the Woodlands Sequin Mix Plus finished it up. Aren't those tiny mushrooms adorable?
Have you started your fall projects yet?
