Grateful Leaves - Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Leaves

   We had under 90 degree weather for a day or two recently and it got me in my fall feels with stamping.  I saw the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge and thought they were perfect for fall!  And I wanted to give my new Gorgeous Leaves stamp set a spin. Win win!

  I started off with an Old Olive base stamped on the diagonal with Old Olive ink using the Gorgeous Leaves stamps.  The smaller leaf I stamped off once so that the OO ink wouldn't be so bold.

  Next I built up my focal point using some of the retired 2020-2022 In Color DSP in a wood grain pattern cut with a stitched circle die.  I layered a Tailor Made tag with die cut leaves; one being stamped in Rich Razzleberry and the others cut right out of cardstock.  A bit of retired cotton ribbon ties the top of the tag and then the whole cluster is popped on dimensionals.

  The sentiment is from another new set; Sparkle of the Season and is stamped in Rich Razzleberry on a narrow scrap of Basic White.  A few Artistry Blooms sequins finish off the details of this card.

  This was definitely a great color combo to get started on some fall cards!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
