I don’t know about you, but I had a very hard time letting go of summer. It was a busy summer and I did not get enough time to do the things I wanted to or spend enough time with my family. So I fought it as long as I could. But then enter the September release from Brutus Monroe. Impossible not to love it all and want to dive into a pile of leaves. Now I’m ready for the crisp air, beautiful colors and all my favorite things about this time of year…finally!
This card features several new products from the September release. Starting with the background, I used Chroma Mist sprays on glossy paper for a different effect. This is one of my favorite things about Chroma Mists – depending on what type of paper you use them on and how much or how little water you add – the outcome is always different. It’s easy to create all different looks.
Once dry, I used Copper Chroma Glaze with the wood stencil. I love these colors so much. The copper works so nicely with the browns. The flowers are from the “Fall Florals” stamp set. I colored them with Copics, cut them out and inked the edges lightly with brown ink. The “Thanks” sentiment is from the “Fall Favorites” die set. I colored some pink enamel dots with the same copic marker I used on the berries so they would coordinate. So many fun products used to create this fall themed card. I hope it makes you appreciated Autumn’s beauty as much as it did for me!
The rest of the card came together pretty simply. I stamped the “You Are Awesome” stamp in embossing ink and heat embossed it with Mermaid Tail embossing powder. I fussy cut and popped it with adhesive dots. Once I put the card together, the final touch was some rhinestones to balance out the plain side of the card with the stenciled background.
