Looking Forward To Fall

Today has to be one of the prettiest days we have had in a long time, so nice that you can keep your doors and windows open and just let the breeze blow.  *smiles*  I get to thinking fall might be around the corner after all.  And here’s a card looking towards the future…

       014

I had some Autumn flower soft that I had been wanting to use and decided one way it might look it’s best was with the Lovely As A Tree stamp set.  Again I used the same color hemp as on yesterday’s card except I used one of Stampin’ Ups buttons with a leaf brad that I had gotten off the clearance rack.  I must have taken a zillion pictures of this card and every way I had it ….. it always seem to turn out about the same…. not the best.  It really got frustrating and then I just quit.

Here’s a closer view ~

I thought it turned out pretty well.  I stamped the tree in Early Espresso, colored the trunk with my Stampin’ Up marker and then dabbed glue here and there wherever I wanted the flower soft to stick.  After the glue dried I shook the excess off and called it a day.

Here’s a closer look at the flower soft~

The inside ~

Clean and simple, punched three different sized circles and stamped the tiny pine cone stamp from the same set in the middle and added a brad.

Another fall card coming your way tomorrow *smile* I just did not have good luck at picture taking today, otherwise I would be showing you a peek.

Until tomorrow, have a great day/evening and I’ll be looking forward to your visit then.  HAPPY STAMPING!!!
