Stamp Something Friday

It's Friday already so it's time for another Stamp Something Challenge. This week the super talented Alex is hosting the challenge. She chose the theme of fall somethings...anything that reminds you of fall.
Normally when I need to make a fall card I reach for loads of love, there's just something about that truck!!! But this time I decided to ink up the new SU set, seasonal icons (it's a level 3 hostess set). I used the baby wipe technique with so saffron, old olive and red riding hood reinkers to make the leaves. I punch them out with my 1in circle punch and layered on a 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 circle. I ran a portion of the saffron layer through my CB using the foldre birds and swirls. It's a bit tricky to see in the photo but the stip is about 1 1/2in wide. I then, in honor of Alex, broke out my jumbo eyelets. And added some cranberry crisp stitched ribbon since I'm still waiting for my riding hood ribbon. Not a bad match.
I'm still working on my sale list, I have loads of stuff!!! So keep checking back!
Oh and don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's samples, they rock!

Thanks for stoppin' by!

Beautiful card Erin! Love the image and great idea to use the baby wipe technique. Love the eyelets and ribbon too! This card reminds me of leaf peeping, which will be here before we know it! :) Have a fun weekend!


Alex will be so proud that you used the jumbo eyelets in her honor!!! LOL!

It's beautiful!

Many Blessings,
