Sending Autumn Hugs

Hi, it's my turn to bring you a project, using Poppy stamps and dies, and I've chosen a darling new die called, Birch Stitched Frame. It's a power packed die, 2 1/4 x 3 1/2", with so many possibilities.

I wanted to keep my fall themed card monotone in color, and also full of sparkle. Truthfully, can't wait for cooler weather and soft breezes!

Once I cut the birch tree frame, I sponge inked it with a couple of Distress Inks onto watercolor cardstock, following a quick watercolor method I learned from Jennifer McGuire. Look closely to see how I applied darker tones to the sides of the trunk and underside of the branch. Then, instead of water I spritzed the whole die cut with Lindy's Starburst: Twinkles Tinsel, for an all over glittered effect.

The background is stenciled, first with sponge inking, then also sprayed with Lindy's Starburst. It's a quick and easy way to add a layer of shiny sheen to a card.

Same treatment for MB's Botanical Stem.

A bit of silver thread, a few silver  sequins, and a vellum sentiment embossed in white and platinum, and my card is done.

Hope I gave you some inspiration to start your fall cards. Is that a breeze I feel? Nope! It's the air conditioning coming on again.

Outside is 104! ~sigh~ Think I'll make another fall card and keep dreaming of season changes...

Happy Crafting!
