In case you haven't looked at the calendar, there is five weeks left until the beginning of Autumn. I don't know about you but I'm ready for Autumn to arrive. I LOVE the rich colors of the turning leaves and the crisp Autumn air.
Today I played with a couple of my new stamps and created this Truly Grateful Card
. Before placing my last order I debated about buying the Magnificent Maple stamp
because I have a ton of leaf stamps already, but I'm really glad I did. It's a wonderful size and it stamps beautifully.
This card was made with NO special tools. All I used was Stamps, Ink and Paper to participate at 'ABC' Challenges. When I first starting making cards I didn't have a lot of tools to use. This challenge took me back to the basics. The Natural Composition
background paper has a woodgrain glossy finish and I sponged on whisper white craft ink to give it a whitewash finish. The other colors are: Early Espresso, So Saffron, Cajun Craze, Soft Suede, and Whisper White. The sentiment and acorn are from the new Truly Grateful stamp set
from the Holiday Stampin' Up! catalog. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!!!
