The House That Stamps Built; Designer Choice Challenge

It’s the second Wednesday of September, summer is now over, and the kids are back in school.  Today, I am sharing the Designers Choice Challenge at The House That Stamp Built hosted by Deonna who has chosen the theme of “Falling For Fall/Autumn.”

As with our other challenges, we are offering a $25.00 gift certificate to the Repeat Impressions store for our random winner. Don’t forget, if you use a RI stamp, you get an extra entry!

For my “Falling For Fall card” I broke out my gold leafing flakes. This is a old time favorite technique that is so perfect for those fall themed cards.  The technique is easy. I began by applying Versamark Ink to “Oak Leaf Silhouette #5110”“Maple Leaf Silhouette #5127,” and “Random Dots #3404c” then applied “heat and stick” powder. Once that is covered you heat it up with your embossing gun until a shine appears, but not too long because you will ruin the stick.  Then dip your project in the flakes and burnish off with a stiff brush.

To finish the card I stamped “Let Us #2826” sentiment across a My Favorite Things die on DCWV foil paper.

Leaves - glitter-wm

I can’t wait to see your Falling for Fall cards at The House that Stamps Built as this time of year is my absolute favorite.  The colors are so magnificent, there’s a crispness in the air and the holidays are around the corner.  YEAH!
