Stamping 411 – Autumn Days

This set, Autumn Days, was one Demos could preorder.  I ordered it, but then never really played with it until today’s Stamping 411 sketch challenge card!

I started with a base of Always Artichoke cardstock, then layered the print leaves pattern from Autumn Traditions Designer Paper.  I added a Scallop Edge border under the top of the DSP, then some 1/4 Grosgrain Chocolate Chip ribbon to hide the seam.

I stamped the Pheasant in Basic Brown on Kraft cardstock and distressed the edges with my Cutter Kit Distressing Tool.  I sponged the edges with Basic Brown ink, too.  I layered it on More Mustard and did the same distressing and sponging, then layered it on a slightly larger Elegant Eggplant.  I wanted to leave room on this layer for the two Very Vanilla Jumbo Brads.

I like the "rustic" feel of this card!  It reminds me of growing up on the farm!

We’d love for you to play along with use.  Use the sketch and post your entry to Mr. Linky on Stamping 411 website!

My favorite project here is the playful note card. The colors are great and I love the circles of color with the swirl over it. Very clever.

Like all your projects, but the last card is my favorite with the spotlights of color. It reminds me of fireworks and any wedding should be the start of a lifetime of exciting fireworks, right? How appropro! Thank you for a great stop on this fine tour!
