Today's card pays tribute to the changing leaves of the season:
|Colors: More Mustard, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze and Whisper White. Stamps: Gently Falling and Perfectly Penned. Accessories: Soft Suede 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon.|
Basically, you start with pieces of neutral card stock 2″ x 3 1/4″, 3″ x 4 1/4″ & 4″ x 5 1/4.” Stack them on top of each other with the smaller layers in the center of the larger ones. You can use a little bit of repositional adhesive to hold them in place. Start stamping your images on the stack of card stock. For a card like this, I would start with the largest stamp first and then work your way to the smaller stamps. Where the edges of the card stock meet up, there will be a small gap in the images. This is completely expected and you can fix that by adding a piece of cardstock 1/4" bigger than each layer behind them.
This is also a good time to point out that Stampin' Up! is experimenting with selling individual stamps from three different stamp sets: Perfectly Penned (featured on this card) and Word Play from the Main Catalog, and Seasonal Saying from the Holiday Catalog. Each stamp ranges in price from $4.95 to $6.95 and comes in a cello bag. If Stampin' Up! finds there is a demand for these single stamp images, they may expand this offerings in the Spring. So if you like this idea, vote with your dollars and buy a few to show Stampin' Up! you want this to be a permanent option.
