Dreamweaver & Quietfire Awesome in Autumn! Finale!

Our amazing week of Awesome in Autumn concludes today! This has been a wonderful week playing with the Quietfire Design team, and their amazing images and sentiments. Their beautiful calligraphic style, quotes and thoughts are the perfect addition to our Dreamweaver designs. We hope you have followed along with us, and have left your comments for an opportunity to win one of two wonderful prize packages:

Here's what I've created for today's post:
Yesterday I showed you one corner of the beautiful Fall borders (LJ874) stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils. Today, I have used the other corner along with the Leaf texture (LG616) stencil (did you notice those two little leaves in the lower corner of yesterday's design?), and the same beautiful saying "Every blade in the field" saying (#5820) from Quietfire Design.

  • Tape the pumpkin corner to the corner of Distress Antique Linen cardstock with removable tape
  • Use a palette knife and paste spreader to apply Matte Yellow Embossing Paste over the stencil
  • Remove the stencil and place in water for cleaning
  • Let the paste dry
  • Tape the Leaf texture stencil to the shiny side of a piece of freezer paper with removable tape
  • Use a palette knife and paste spreader to apply Matte Yellow Embossing Paste over the stencil
  • Remove the stencil and place in water for cleaning
  • Let the paste dry thoroughly
  • Stamp the saying on matching cardstock
  • Use a Deckle edge scissors to trim around the saying
  • Use Distress ink vintage photo around the edges of the saying, then edge a little darker with Distress ink walnut stain
  • Mount on a piece of Distress Frayed Burlap cardstock that has been edged with ink too, set aside
  • Place your clean, dry stencils back over the dry yellow paste and tape in place with removable tape
  • Use small stencil brushes to add color, I used Distress inks mustard seed, spiced marmalade, forest moss, vintage photo, and walnut stain, as well as just a touch of Brilliance Rocket Red
  • After the pumpkin corner is colored, Deckle the edge and ink with vintage photo and walnut stain
  • Mount on a frayed burlap card front
  • CAREFULLY peel different leaves off the freezer paper and arrange them along the bottom edge
  • Once you like the placement, gently lift an edge with a toothpick and add a dab of glue to secure them
  • Use foam mounting tape to adhere the saying
  • Add a leaf to the saying too
We hope you have enjoyed our designs this week and have been inspired to create your own Autumn Awesomeness!
