Inspired By: signs of fall/ Lil' Inker Designs

Acorns... I'm a sucker for them so you can bet that every fall, there will most likely be an inspiration photo using acorns. Of course you don't have to include them in your project. How does this inspire you? acorns? fall? leaf? colors? trio?

I LOVE the mix of blue and gold (yes, I am a Michigan girl) and the texture from the acorns. The beautiful Reap a Harvest stamp set and Reap a Harvest Dies (it looks like it is out of stock, the dies are there tho. You could easily re-create this card with the Fall Foliage stamp set) was the stamp set I reached for from my stash. 

I stamped the outline images in Navy ink onto a piece of Premium Polar White card stock cut with the Silly Stitched dies and gave a splattering of golds and yellows to the background. I then embossed the acorns, hard to capture the shimmer in the photo, with some copper WOW embossing powder. I used Copic markers to color up the long leaf images and added the sentiment in Navy ink onto a strip of Mist card stock. To complete card front, I tucked in some copper cord behind my main images and added the finished panel to the top of some kraft card stock cut with the Stitched Woodgrain Cover Up

Thanks for stopping by today.
