There is a new stamp set in the July-December Mini Catalog called Soft Seedlings. This set will work from late summer into Autumn, and I just love the watercolor-y, etched look of the set. Here’s my card:
Take a look at this beautiful stamp set:
The card starts with a card base from the Soft Seafoam & Pool Party Cards & Envelopes; unfortunately, this lovely card set is sold out, but you can re-create with a card base of Pool Party, perhaps with a floral pattern stamped on it. I then cut a strip of Soft Sea Foam card stock at 4 1/4″ by 2″. I embossed it with the new Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. I then adhered that to the card base a little lower than halfway down.
Here’s the new Embossing Folder — think of the possibilities for your Fall holiday crafting!
I cut a panel of Basic White card stock with a die from the Scalloped Contours dies. Using the large leaf stamp, I stamped lightly in the Soft Sea Foam ink. I then took a sponge dauber and daubed lightly with some Pool Party ink from the ink pad. I THEN stamped onto the white panel.
I popped the white panel onto the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I then took a scrap of Soft Sea Foam and stamped it with a sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set with Old Olive ink. I snipped diagonal cuts on each side and attached it to the card.
I then added a few retired Adhesive Sequins to the card to add a little bling! I also made the card in a horizontal fashion:
