Fall card sets

Here are some quick and easy cards I made. Quick and easy because I had most of it already all stamped up! I created a background pattern by sponging in green and then randomly stamping the leaves and acorns. This is a fast formula I love to use: pattern on the bottom (stamped or patterned paper,) stripe to separate (this can be a solid or pattern paper, ribbon, or punched edge,) some type of popped up embellishment (here I reused the leaves,) and the sentiment at the top!

I also used a fake layered technique by masking off a section of the paper and then sponging and stamping and then removing the mask. I'll probably share this technique again later in greater detail. For now I just want to show off the end product.

But maybe the best part of making these is the potential lead I got today! The lady I made these for sent one out and the recipient loved it so much... I may have the opportunity to make and sell more! Woowho! I can't wait to share and spread my stampy happiness with as many people as possible. Thanks AmyC for being such a big fan of my work! :)

I used Stampin' Up!'s Day Of Gratitude stamp set in Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, and Early Espresso. It sounds like a gross combo but it looks great!
