Although fall has not come to Nashville yet, I know it has arrived in a lot of places. There is nothing prettier than seeing all that beautiful foliage. The reds, oranges and yellows are so brilliant and just gorgeous. I have to admit I do miss that part of Northern New York (but it is the only part weather-wise that I miss!). Originally, I wanted to make a card showing these colors but decided to go rogue and do crazy colors.
I used the stamp set called Beauty Of Friendship. This stamp set has coordinating dies called Beautiful Trees, although I did not use them on this card. Instead I just used stamps, ink and card stock. Stampin’ Up!® has started showing cards made for the beginner stamper to the avid stamper and everything in-between. This card is made for the beginner stamper, although I think it is pretty enough for any stamper to make.
To make this card I first stamped the trees in Soft Suede ink. Then I stamped the tree tops in Soft Succulent, Fresh Freesia, Bumblebee, Night Of Navy and Calypso Coral inks. The tops of the trees are a DisINKtive stamp. This is where one stamp has different opacities which means some of the colors come out lighter and some darker all with one stamp. If you look at the leaves you can see this. It looks like two stamps made the image but it was only one.
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Night Of Navy ink.
