Happy STAMPtemberģ Saturday to you! Iím so pleased to bring you another GORGEOUS card idea from the fabulous and talented Kelly Rasmussen!

Hi there! Iím thrilled to be here today to help celebrate the amazing STAMPtember event! Iíve created a card that features some of the awesome new stamps from the BasicGrey Persimmon collection ó a must have for all your fall projects!



I started out by stamping the Simple Leaf Background with a gradient of fall ink colors. The Hero Arts Pumpkin Pie, Just Rust and Orange Soda are perfect matches to the Persimmon collection and blend nicely next to each other. Then I used the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen to go over each leaf to add a touch of shine.



Next I stamped my sentiment onto watercolor paper with Memento Luxe Nautical Blue ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I used Distress Markers and a water brush to color in the image. And since I heat embossed the image it was very easy to stay in the lines ó the embossing traps your color and doesnít allow it to bleed over into unwanted areas.



Next, I trimmed out my sentiment and a banner shape from a piece of Simon Says Stamp Birch Wood Veneer Paper. To create the blue piece, I inked up a piece of cardstock with Hero Arts Navy Mid-Tone Shadow Ink. I donít always have the right colors of cardstock on hand, so this is a great way to create your own matching cardstock!




And finally I tied a bow with May Arts twine around the panel and then mounted it to a top folding cream card base with foam adhesive. And for the finishing touch I added a scattering of Hero Arts Orange Metallic Decor!
