Sense of Wonder Fall Card - Stampers Anonymous fall release

Hello friends! The weather here has been so warm lately and I'm so looking forward to fall and cooler days. I love fall, it's my favorite time of year! My card today features the new Stampers Anonymous Nature's Wonder stamp set by Tim Holtz and the new Ranger Lift Ink. 

Love the textures on this card created by the stamping in the background, the ribbon, flowers and leaves.

Cut Watercolor cardstock for the background of your card, positions stamps over background and pick up stamps with a block. 

Drip Alcohol Inks on a piece of Yupo paper. 

Add Blending Solution to to felt pad and punch over the surface to blend inks. 

Ink stamp with Lift Ink and stamp leaves on to Yupo background then stamp the lifted ink on to Watercolor Cardstock. Blot off the image on the Yupo then buff off the extra ink with a soft cloth. 

Apply Distress Markers directly to Media Mat, pick up ink with waterbrush and color leaves. The Lift Ink is waterproof and will not run. Dry with a heat tool. 

Apply Distress Micro Glaze to the leaves.The Distress Micro Glaze will act as a resist so the leaves will not take the ink. Stamp background with Craze stamp using Old Paper Distress Ink, add Distress Ink to the background using a blending tool and spray background with Distress Mica Spray in Tarnished Brass. I also flicked the Mica Spray over the background to create some spots. Blot of leaves as necessary. 

Spray ribbon and flowers with Distress Spray Stain and Distress Mica Spray, add a little water to help the ink spread, dry with a heat tool scrunching ribbon as it dries. 

Cut out leaves from Yupo paper with scissors. 

Carefully heat the Yupo leaves with a heat tool, using tweezers shape the leaves as they become pliable to create dimension. 

Create mat a little larger then background with rust cardstock, add stitching as desired. Assemble card adding Textured Surfaces and vintage dictionary print on base card. 

Tie ribbon around card with a bow, add flowers and leaves adhering them with Distress Collage Medium and foam tape. 

Stamp message with Archival Ink cut close to words and add to Ornate Plate. Adhere Ornate Plate to card with foam tape over the Wood Plank. 

Love the colors of the leaves that signify the changing of the season. 

Thanks for stopping in!
