Count Your Blessings

>> Monday, September 12, 2011

Hello, Hello, Hello! Happy Monday to you all! Hope you all had a great weekend!
So, how's the weather where you're at?  Now that it's September is there a chill in the air?  Here in Michigan, there's no doubt that Summer is just about over and Fall is just around the corner. The card I have to inspire you today shows off a few of the new Fall stamps from DRS Designs that are available for purchase today, September 12, 2011.  Check out the entire release HERE, as soon as they become available.   

I created the background on a whim by stamping the Fall Leaf with Acorn (471F) stamp repeatedly on ivory cardstock using Versamark ink. I think this stamp was originally created to be a focal image, but I've experimented using it as a background image and I really like how it turned out.  I heat embossed it with Copper Embossing Powder and distressed the edges with Vintage Photo ink.  I think the copper embossing and the distressed look make the background look really elegant.  I really gives it an Autumn feel.  The main image I used is the new Squirrel with Acorn stamp (934H).  I colored it with Copic Markers and distressed the edges of this as well.  Then I stamped "Count Your Blessings" Greeting (915D), also a new release, on the panel I added behind the image. I just love this card, and hope you do too!  Finished card size is 4.25" x 5.5".

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll be back soon!
Have a great day! 

Smiles,
Jennifer
