Fall is coming! Can you see the few leaves that have started turning on the tree above Winston's head at the top of this photo? The picture was taken this morning on our walk / jog around the lake. Fall is one of my favorite times of year – here in Minnesota it is the best weather of the year! So I love to make fall cards but I usually keep them very nature focused. But my fabulous Stampfield Stars team members have showed me I am missing out on a major "bling" opportunity!! The four cards I am sharing today are just a few of the awesome swap cards from our recent team swap. I will be sharing more of the swap cards once the Holiday Catalog begins. But today we are just going to look at four beauties with bling!
Carole Baumgartner made this gorgeous card using the Colorful Seasons Bundle. I believe she used the baby wipe method to stamp the colorful leaves (drop different colors of ink refill on a baby wipe to make a temporary multi colored ink pad, than ink up your stamp on the baby wipe). The background was embossed with the Woodlands embossing folder.
But what I really love about this card are the lovely touches of gold because they really shine! You can see them a little better in this photo because I am holding the card and tilting it so that it catches the light. Carole used the Gold Foil Paper to great effect here – the gold leaves are lovely and the small strip at the end of the greeting helps carry over the gold theme. Love it!
This lovely card by Linda Ferris is made with the Vintage Leaves stamp set and the Leaflets framelits dies. Love these rich colors: Cajun Craze, So Saffron, and Tranquil Tide!
The shimmer on this card comes from the Wink of Stella Glimmer Brush applied to the leaves. Plenty of shine here too with the rhinestones and the clear embossed greeting from the Colorful Seasons stamp set.
This card by Jeannine Froberg is loaded with new Holiday Catalog items! A new stamp set called Pick A Pumpkin with the Patterned Pumpkins thinlits dies and the lovely Painted Autumn paper.
Here is close up shot of the bling – a single rhinestone that sets off this card beautifully!
Kathie Strenge also used the Painted Autumn designer paper on her lovely card – and the same pattern! This stunning sunflower is made with the Eastern Medallion Thinlits dies – so beautiful! The leaf Kathie used comes from the new Painted Harvest set which has a coordinating Leaf Punch.
In this close up you can see the texture from the Softly Falling embossing folder in the flower center. And can you see the bling?! One Crushed Curry Glitter Enamel Dot which sets off the greeting (also from Painted Harvest) perfectly! Thank you for letting me share some of my team's creativity with you today!
