I love Fall don't you? The colors of the leaves are so inspiring! I need to make around 35 ATCs (Artist Trading Cards in case you aren't familiar with them) for my church this week. As I was thinking about what to use, I kept coming back to leaves and the beautiful Fall season.
Kitchen Sink Stamps has a gorgeous set, Autumn Squirrel, that includes 2 leaves and 2 sizes of acorns - perfect! So I started out by making some background paper. It wasn't really that hard either. I just started by stamping all my step 3s, and then step 2s and then, of course, step 1s. I changed the colors a bit and added more leaves, then some acorns and finally the great script stamp from 3 Step Letters From the Past also from Kitchen Sink Stamps. Here's what I ended up with.
I'll get 10 ATCs out of each sheet so I only need to make 3 1/2 of these, not too bad!! After I cut it up, I added the verse, which was printed on the computer, diecut, sponged and stamped with the small acorn.
I try not to add too much "stuff" to these since more steps really takes a ton of more time when you're making 35!! And they also need to fit into clear sleeves in an ATC album.. I think the brightness of the leave and the mix with the text stamps gives these plenty of interest!
Here are my first 10 done, hopefully I can finish them up today! Thanks for visiting - please take a few minutes to visit the rest of the KSS Crew!! Have a beautiful day!
