ICS Blog Hop - Fall for All


Hello and welcome to the October Inspire, Create & Share Blog Hop!  If you've already been hopping, you should have landed here from the super talented Jen Guarino's blog!  

I'm so happy that this month's ICS Blog Hop theme is "Fall for All"!  I just love Fall and it's finally beginning to feel like it here in Middle Tennessee!  One of my favorite things about Fall is the beautiful leaves changing colors.  With all of the trees around here it is a gorgeous sight for sure!

Here's my Fall for All card that is really all about the changing leaves!


My A2 card base was Early Espresso with a thin layer of Tangelo Twist and top layer of Old Olive Cardstock.  On the Old Olive layer I stamped some of the leaves from the Vintage Leaves stamp set tone on tone with Old Olive Ink.  For the colored leaves I used a fun technique called Joseph's Coat Technique that my friend Ginger Pelfrey shared with me a few weeks ago.  For a link to a video by Tami White on how to do this technique click here.  If you've not done this technique, I'm sure you'll love the video.  I sponged Cajun Craze, Tangelo Twist, Old Olive, Hello Honey, Daffodil Delight, and Soft Suede onto Whisper White Cardstock.  I then stamped my leaves onto the sponged cardstock with Versamark and embossed them with clear embossing powder.  Next I brayered Early Espresso ink all over my cardstock.  The leaves were then cut out with the Leaflet Framelit Dies and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I then splattered a little Early Espresso and Tangelo Twist Ink on my card.  (Yep, I went a little crazy with the splattering, maybe less is more...)



My sentiment from the Light Hearted Leaves Set was stamped in Early Espresso on Tangelo Twist cardstock and then clear embossed.  I die cut the sentiment with one of the Lots of Labels Framelit Dies and sponged the edge tone on tone with Tangelo Twist ink.  It was adhered to the card front with more Stampin' Dimensionals and a Candy Dot was added on each side of the label.


For the inside of the card I added a layer of Old Olive and then a layer of Crumb Cake.  I stamped one of the Vintage Leaves tone on tone with Crumb Cake Ink and then added the other sentiment from Lighthearted Leaves in Early Espresso over that.  I added the bottom part of one of my Joseph's Coat Leaves that had previously been cut for the top of the card onto the inside top edge.  I also did a little splattering of some of the Tangelo Twist ink on the inside of my card.  

I hope you've enjoyed my Fall for All card and are ready for some more inspiration!  Next up is the Fabulous Tammy Dunlap's blog!  Just click next button below and you'll be there!
