Welcome to the Inspire Create Share Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators that hop together on the 2nd Wednesday of the month. Every month there is a theme for the hop. This month the theme is All About Autumn.
When I first got my hands on the 2023 Sept-Dec (actually January 3) Mini Catalog I was thrilled to see so many beautiful stamps, paper, and embellishments celebrating Fall. Dare I say they are my favorites? It is safe to say that they are definitely the sets I am reaching for now.
Yes, I used THAT paper...All About Autumn Specialty DSP. This pack of paper is currently not available and is expected back in stock the week of October 23. It is beautiful and totally worth the wait. Here I used the side of the paper that features copper foil, lots of coppery shine. I cut a window out of the DSP with square die from the Stylish Shapes dies. Behind the window I stamped a sentiment in Copper Clay ink from the Autumn Leaves stamp set. The Autumn Leaves stamp set not only has lovely images, it has the best sentiments. Next to the sentiment I added a few Copper Clay Adhesive-Backed Solid Gems. Isn't the Copper ribbon beautiful? I am sorry to say that it is not currently available. The ribbon is also expected back in stock the week of October 23.
Let's talk about the leaves. I loved how they turned out. Here's how I made them. I used Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, and Copper Clay ink pads. I inked up portions of a stamp block starting with the lightest color. I sprayed the block with water and then stamped it on a piece of Watercolor Paper. Scroll down below the signature for a short video on how I colored the leaves.
Now it is time to check out what Deb has created for you.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!
