It's day four of the MFT teasers and we have an amazing stamp set and coordinating Die-namcis to share with you today. The Thankful Leaves stamp set and Fall Leaves Die-namics are absolutely gorgeous! They are just perfect for all your fall themed projects!
For my project today, I created a thank you card and a wine bottle topper. I like to have a couple of these on hand at all times. It is great to be able to pick one out of the stash as I am dashing off to a friends place for dinner.
I must admit that the leaves did not turn out exactly as I had hoped for. I ran into a bit of an issue with my ink pads. I recently purchased the new Stampin' Up! Classic ink pads. While I love the coverage these ink pads provide, they are not exactly great for doing the rock and roll technique. Way to much ink all over the stamps and my fingers! It was a real mess! LOL
I used the Fall Leaves Die-namics to cut out the leaves in Natural card stock. I then went to town with the ink! I used More Mustard, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Chocolate Chip Classic Ink. I sponged the edges of the leaves with Adirondack Latte ink. Once I had the leaves stamped, I used the Paper Blossoms Tool Kit and the Paper Blossoms Craft Molding Matt to add some texture and dimension to the leaves. If you haven't picked up these two products yet, you really need to! They are fabulous!
