Gather Mixed Media Card

Hello!  I hope you are having a great day!  The first day of fall may be tomorrow, but here it's a balmy 89 degrees and sunny!  It really couldn't be more perfect, and I will treasure it as I know what will be around the corner soon.  Today I let my creative juices flow and decided to make a very simple stamp into something pretty amazing and 3D!  I embraced the upcoming fall colors, with a splash of teal and gold.  I used kraft paper and scored it every 1/4 inch so it would look like corrugated paper, added some texture paste and red tattered angels glimmer mist.  I didn't stop there, I continued to distress the paper with tearing and distress stains,  I added some red leaves that had been preserved by a company much smarter than me (as I never would have thought to distribute them), and teal colored burlap.  To make the wreath, I cut it out with the scan n cut (another smart company), and then further frayed it with scissors.  I used five layers to create this beauty and then added maple leaf and twig stamps to make more texture.!  Without further ado here it is!!!



Products used:  brick cs, recollections teal burlap, recollections dried leaves, 360 teal ribbon, off white cs, stampin up pumpkin pie ink, stampin up, daffodil ink, memento rich cocoa ink, memento espresso truffle ink, memento rhubarb stalk, memento cantaloupe ink, distress stain tarnished brass, tattered angels red glimmer mist, versamark ink, ranger gold embossing powder, ranger texture paste, and Fun Stampers Journey Harvest Wreath stamp set.
