Falling Leaves and Bright Blessings!

Fall is officially here and to mark the occasion, I have a card with the new Stampin' Up! Falling Leaves set and the coordinating jumbo wheel Bright Blessings. This is just a perfect pair to do some festive fall stamping for friends and family (say that fast 10 times, lol!).

This was a card for a recent workshop; it was quick and easy. That's what we like when time is in short supply and we need a card. The jumbo wheels are a favorite of mine as they can add lots of punch, cover a lot of territory and add lots of visual texture in a short amount of time.

First the Soft Suede cardstock was wheeled with the Bright Blessings jumbo wheel which was inked up on the Soft Suede ink pad. The Stampin' Around Wheel Guide is a great tool to get and keep those rolled lines straight on your project!

The next step was to use the Distressing Tool from the Cutter Kit to distress the edges of the More Mustard card stock for a softer look. One of the leaves from the set was stamped in More Mustard on this. Three leaves from the set were stamped in the same colors as the three punched-out circles, layered, then added to the More Mustard layer, which was then adhered to the card.

For a finishing touch, a short length of Dusty Durango Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon was adhered to the card's left edge with a Gold Mini Brad. I found this stamp set to be fun and easy to work with, and it offers lots of possibilities. It has some good sentiments with it also (always a plus!).
