Gently Falling – FMS4

I wanted to try the Freshly Made Sketch (FMS4) again this week…I liked the tag element in the background.  However, it wasn't as easy to use as I thought! 


One of the things my Stamp Club did last week was the Baby Wipe Technique with the Gently Falling stamp set.  Since I had the "ink pad" made up, I went ahead and stamped a bunch of leaves in Pool Party, More Mustard and Soft Suede Classic Inks.  You'll probably be seeing a LOT of them over the next few weeks.  This card I made for a very special online friend.  We've met several times at various Stampin' Up! functions and she truly has a kind heart!




I started with a base of Early Espresso.  I added the Pool Party print from Spice Cake Designer Paper, then a strip of the stripe design in Spice Cake, too.  I cut the Two Tags die from Confetti Cream cardstock and place it on top.  I cut out two of my leaves and adhered them over the tag and wrapped some Early Espresso Quilted Ribbon around and tied a knot.   I stamped the acorn in More Mustard with Early Espresso two-step on top, then punched with the 1" Circle punch and layered it on  1 1/4 punch of Early Espresso.  I added the Thinking of You Curly Cute greeting in Early Espresso on Pool Party cardstock.


Another busy week for me!  I have a lot of "partially started" projects that need to get finished up before my husband is off on vacation next week.  I know I won't get much stamping stuff done when he is home.  I'm going to try to get him to do some of those "honey do" projects like cleaning carpets and closets!  What FUN!  lol!  Plus, we may just take off for a couple days to go see some pretty fall leaves.


Have a great week!

The coloring on your leaves is fabulous.  It's been a long time since I've done any coloring with the baby wipe technique.  Your card is gorgeous.  I can't wait to get my hands on that dp!  Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

Wow.  Those are some pretty leaves!   I don't think I've tried that technique, but maybe I need to if that's the result!   Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
