Now you might need a double take on these first two cards - no they are not identical, they are just alike.
The base card is Kraft that I layered with some DP from my Provocraft Americana Patchwork collection. The image is a digi image from Karen's Doodles that I printed and colored in with my pencils and gamsol. I used markers here and there for little touches. I cut the image out with my oval nestie and then cut out a scallop oval nestie to layer behind the image. Before I placed the image panel down I took a piece of scrap Kraft card stock and added a length of ribbon to it and added it to the center of the paper. Once the image panel was added I picked out some primas and some eyelet/brads and added them with glue dots around the panel. Once everything was in place I added some stickles for a little glitter here and there and I was complete. The next card is basically the same with just a different image from Karen's Doodles.
Some of you who've been follower's for who have come to my blog for a while may remember this image. I've had this stamp for years and years - it is probably one of the first stamps I purchased. It is an image from D.O.T.S. (yes, it's that old!) who is now called Close To My Heart. I just love this image, it's very "Fall-y". The base card is Real Red that I layered with Creamy Caramel and some DP from Paper Pizzaz. If you notice that the orange layer kind of looks a little like wood grain? That paper did not have a maker on it ~ but I sponged some Close to Cocoa ink around that layer before adding it to the card.
I stamped the image and colored it with my pencils and gamsol then cut the image out and adhered it with pop dots to the card. I had a couple of the Chocolate Chip swirls on my desk left over from another project and I added those to the corners for a little fun.
I hope that you enjoyed these cards today, and that they inspire you to create something Fall-like. As I look out the window today I see all the Fall colors and it's so pretty. Even though I'm a little busy I just might take the pooch for a walk, it's a beautiful day! Not too long before the cold Winter will be upon us.
Have a super great day!
