Harvest Fun

This month my set to play with for FireCracker Designs by Pamela is Harvest Fun. I love Fall - or, at least I used to when I lived in Michigan. There isn't a whole lot to Fall in central Texas, summer pretty much just blends into winter here. I miss the colorful leaves, and the crisp air, and the visits to the cider mills. Here all I can do is stamp some nice Fall leaves! The leaves on this card are colored with my Stampin' Up markers - first More Mustard, then pounced with a little Pumpkin Pie, and then a bit of Really Rust added here and there, and I just kept stamping off until the stamp was dry. I like the impression of wind blowing through the leaves this created. The ribbon is Martha Stewart twill - it was white, I colored it with a Copic marker to match the colors of the card. Doing this makes the ribbon a lot more stiff, but not too stiff to tie in a knot. This is one of the more simple and quick cards I've made recently, but I do like how it turned out. Thanks for stopping by today.

  1. This is SO beautiful! I love it.

  2. Great idea to pounce the leaves. Love that ribbon!

  3. What a lovely card! Great job!

  4. Libby you are so right, it does look like the wind it blowing them along. Reminds me of "Pooh's Blustery Day!"

  5. what a pretty card! I love the twill tape too. nice touch!

  6. Great card! I love the effect of the stamping off. I love how your twill turned out, too. stiffens the ribbon. I wonder why.
