Fall in the Air?

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend :)  We are in the midst of a heat wave here...very hot and humid.  I'm so glad I get to spend this week by the lake at my parents' house.  Can't think of any better place to be in this weather :)
Today I have a decidedly Fallish card for you, along with a new how-to video.  Check it out:

Fall-themed Thank You card featuring the Vintage Leaves and Gorgeous Grunge stamp sets and using the Stampin' Mist Ghosting technique.
I have to admit, Fall is my very favourite season.  I love the rich colours and cool crisp air.  Here I've tried to capture some of the vibrance of the autumn leaves by using a colour pallette of Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso, along with touches of gold.

The maple leaf image is from the Vintage Leaves stamp set.  I also used one of the spatter images from Gorgeous Grunge and a sentiment from Endless Thanks.

On the inside I used the same maple leaf stamp with Early Espresso ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock:

The complete how-to is in the video below:

  1. This is a WOW card. I love the technique and it is so easy and gives such fantastic results. I will case this and share it for sure. Thanks for the video.

    1. I'm so glad you found the video helpful. It really is an easy technique and such a great result. And much easier on the nose than bleach LOL

  2. I've seen a ghosting technique done by stamping the image in Whisper White and then stamping over the top with the colored ink. I like this ghosting version better. I totally didn't expect the background to be sponged - it looks so much more complex! Sponging over it with the Crushed Curry really tied it all together. Awesome card! (P.S. I agree about Gorgeous Grunge!)
