No Background Paper Used Here!

Who needs background paper when you have stamps! I started with a cream panel and randomly stamped leaves (Stampendous) with butterscotch, lettuce and rust Adirondack inks, stamped the leaf two to three times before re-inking. Thanksgiving (Paper Inspirations) was then stamped with black VersaFine and the edges were sponged with butterscotch and layered onto clay colored paper. The card is cream cardstock that was stamped with an aged paper stamp (Paper Inspirations) using butterscotch Adirondack and the edges were sponged with the same ink. To make the glitter square I placed 1 1/2" double sided tape from Scor-Pal on clay paper leaving a small border on the top and bottom. Using a leaf punch, punch out a leaf and place the leaf on the center of the tape and sprinkle around it with sea green glitter (Stampendous). Tie the card with ribbon and mount all of the pieces.

I'm getting ready for a busy weekend. Melanie is going to the homecoming football game and dance that follows, which means I have to stay up till midnight to pick her up, wow is that way past my bed time! Then Saturday my husband won 4 tickets to a UCLA football game that starts at 12:30, so we will go to that for a few hours even though we are USC alumni, Go Trojans! We will need to rush home then go to Knott's Scary Farm with a pre-scare dinner that starts at 5:00. I think they stay open until 2 am, again way to late for me. And on Sunday Melanie has two water polo games. It makes me tired just thinking about it but it should be fun!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.
