Autumn Elegance Kit...

The Autumn Elegance Kit from Stampin Up and the Country living Mag is so much fun to play with. I signed up for a swap before I even got my kit. The swap was for just card fronts and i think my two designs are great. Well without further ado here they are...


I didn't have a fall set until now and I really like this set of stamps in the kit. I added the stamp set Summer by the Sea to one because it just made me think of going to the beach on a fall day right at the beginning of the season. I used Not quite Navy cardstock, Summer sun and Very Vanilla. Ink that was used was Close to cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Creamy carmel, Pumpkin pie, and Ruby Red. I took an entire sheet of Very Vanilla and stamped the big Oak leaf and small oak leaf on the paper in random order with the fall colors. I used the masking technique to layer the leaves.... got to love those little yellow sticky notes. Little girls are always great blessings.



The second card front I used just the stamps from the autumn Elegance kit with a little watercolor wash of ruby red to add some color to the large leaf. I took a piece of Brushed gold cardstock to frame up the saying and ran the cardstock for the saying over my chocolate chip pad to give it a little something extra... I think this kit has so much to offer.
