Hello everyone!!! Today I am celebrating FALL!!!! :-) Some of you actually have some fall weather where you are, but it is still hot and dry here in Texas. Hopefully someday soon we will have more fall-like temperatures here and I can go outside and not feel like I am roasting in an oven. Hee hee hee!!!
For my card above, I did something a little different. I actually masked off the area where you see the "hello" sentiment, and then I stamped the leaves and acorns on the top and bottom of the masked area. With the mask still in place, I sponged some Hello Honey ink, Pumpkin Pie ink, and some Cajun Craze ink in an ombre fashion. I then took the mask off and very lightly sponged some Hello Honey ink over the white area.
I then added a die cut "hello" and the kanji that came with the stamp set. I can't read kanji, so I'm guessing it says something like fall or autumn. In my mind, the card says "Hello Fall!" These stamps are all from Art Neko, and you can see the sheet here.
I have a fun surprise for you! I have an extra sheet of these fall stamps, and Annette from Art Neko told me to go ahead and give this away as blog candy instead of mailing it back to her. You can see that these stamps are deeply etched red rubber, and this sheet is ready for you to cut and trim. There are some leaves, acorns, pumpkins, a wagon, and even a cute little squirrel resting on a log.
So, for this blog candy, please leave a comment and tell me what you love about Fall. I will draw a winner from the comments next Sunday, September 6, so be sure to leave me your email address so I can contact you. Good luck!!
