Happy Little Stampers September Anything Goes With Dies Challenge

It is the beginning of the month and time for a new challenge at Happy Little Stampers

I have just joined the design team for the Anything Goes with Dies challenge group.  This will make me try to creatively use the many dies I have accumulated over the years in my card making adventures.

Fall is fast approaching and I love to make cards with leaves.  I also was in a swap where we had to use ribbon on our card and so my challenge card helped me complete the task.  It has been mailed to the recipient.  I did not want to mail it because I like it so well.

The three colored section in the middle of the card is a wide ribbon.  It had wire in it but I removed the wire.  I put iron on adhesive on the back of the ribbon and then added it to the front gold piece of the card.  I then placed this layer in an embossing folder.  You can see the embossed area of on the ribbon very faintly.  

The leaves are a die cut.  I glued two pieces of book pages together.  I colored the leaves with Tattered Angels Calendar Mist Kit - Pumpkin Patch.  I just adding layers of spray until I found the color of leaf I wanted.  There is such a beautiful variation in each paper leaf.

The tag is a die from Paper Smooches.  The Hello is a die from Hero Arts.

The front panel was matted with a dark brown.  The leaves, tag and sentiment are adhered with foam tape.  After the card was finished, I sprayed a gold spray over the top of the card to give the entire card a fall shimmer.

Thanks for stopping by and I do hope that you will come play with us at Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes Die Challenge.
