Another fall card, part 2

Hi everyone!  I'm back with part 2 of the fall cards.  Yesterday's is about as close to clean and simple as I get.  Today's is the same basic principles but kind of grungy.


This card again starts with a base from Cocoa cardstock but instead of a white mat, I used Champagne for a softer look.  I also inked the edges with Chocolate ink.  For the color background, I used a sponge instead of inking my clear block.  Colors used are Sunset, Goldrush, Olive and Barn Red.  I stamped the leaves in Chocolate using the Fall Harvest stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Cocoa ink.  I added some strands of fall colored jute from my stash and tied a knot.


On the inside, I used a pattern paper from the Huntington collection and used more champagne cardstock - torn and inked with Goldrush.


I'm not sure which I liked better.  I think I like them both equally and had fun using some new to me techniques!  I hope you all are having a wonderful week!

If you haven't been to the While Supplies last section  lately, go check it out.  The Spellbound Paper Packsfrom last year are in there for $2.20!!  And a bunch of other great stuff super duper cheap!

You also have about a week left to take advantage of the National Stamping Month promotional stamp set and the amazing Poster Tidings Stamp of the Month.  ~~  This would be a great month to get one of the exclusive Cricut cartridges and take advantage of the specials!  For $114.00 you would get a Cricut cartridge, 3 sheets of dimensional elements and 7 stamp sets!  And no matter what cartridge you choose, you will not go wrong - they are all must haves!!  All of this would retail for $190.85 so it's an amazing savings!
