Fall Borders

It's Dreamweaver Thursday for the Stampendous Design Team so today you'll be treated to a wonderful collection of Fall themed creations.  That's because our theme for this week is "Create Fall"! There are so many wonderful Stampendous stamps and stencils to choose from for this theme, it's easy to get inspired.

Today I have chosen the Fall Borders stencil (LJ874). It's a gorgeous stencil with two different corner images on one stencil.  You can use both of them, or one at a time. I just love the pumpkin corner, and paired with a great sentiment from the Friendship Assortment Set, it makes a wonderful Fall card.

Step 1:  Fold a 5" x 10" green card in half to create a 5" x 5" card
Step 2:  Tape off the corner of the stencil across from the pumpkin, then tape the stencil to a piece of cream cardstock 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" lining up the pumpkin in the lower left corner
Step 3:  Paste emboss the image with Regular Embossing Paste using a Palette Knife and Paste Spreader, remove and clean the stencil, let paste dry
Step 4:  Return the clean, dry stencil over the dry paste, and use 1/4" stencil brushes and ink pads to add color to the design
Step 5:  Stamp the saying on a small piece of cardstock with VersaFine™ Olympia Green ink, layer on a small black mat
Step 6:  Layer the pumpkin on a black mat, then to the front of the card
Step 7:  Add the saying using foam tape for dimension
