Chirpy Fall

Hi Everyone! I hope your weekend has been a good one. We have had a hint of Fall this weekend and I am loving it! I want to show you a Fall card I made using a new Just For Fun stamp I got at the stamp convention this weekend! I love this stamptangle bird. I patted different Fall colors of Distress inks randomly over the bird and then stamped it. I love the way it turned out. Using a die, I cut the leaves from card stock that I stained with Distress stains. I then tapped Versa Mark ink over the leaves, added clear embossing powder, sprinkled a little Autumn Medley glitter  from Sparkle N Sprinkle over the powder and heated from the bottom. I did this twice to make the leaves shiny and sparkly. I want to enter this card into Joan's Gardens, Simon Says Stamp and Rubber Buggy challenges. You can see the challenges below.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I appreciate it! I hope you have a great day!

Joan's Gardens -- Fall colors, bird and leaves
