Isn't this a cute image! This card was made using the new "Autumn Garden" stamp set from Our Craft Lounge. As soon as I saw this set, I knew I had to have it.
To start with, I stamped the fence on a piece of white card stock. On a scrap, I stamped the scarecrow and cut him out. I used Copic markers to color. The sky and grass were sponged on using ink. The scarecrow is mounted with dimensionals. The flowers are brought to life by adding lavender Flower Soft. I purchased this from Joan's Gardens.
The piece on the upper left hand corner was made by stamping the leaf (from SU) with VersaMark on Glossy card stock then embossed with Detail Clear Embossing Powder. I then used sponge daubers to add fall colors over the piece. The Chocolate Chip background was "half" embossed using the Cuttlebug Argyle embossing folder. The main image and the leaf piece were matted with Basic Black card stock.
The Thankful For You verse is from the Autumn Garden set. I used petite oval Nestabilities to cut two scalloped frames. The top piece was pierced in each scallop. The main image was mounted with dimensionals. A yellow Prima Flower and some rhinestones were added to complete the card.
This card makes me smile. I love all the dimension on it.
I wanted to let you know that Shannon's baby card was a very big hit at the baby shower yesterday. Everyone was very impressed with her work.
Have a wonderful day.
