Bigz Autumn Accents - Fall cards

 I love autumn and it's rich colors, crisp evenings and falling leaves. This new Bigz die from Stampin' Up! is called Autumn Accents and can be found in the Holiday Catalog. It also includes an acorn image which I somehow managed to NOT incorporate on this card! Tomorrow is the Stampin' Up! Denver Regional and this is one of the cards that I will be swapping. I'm excited to spend the Saturday with a room full of other Stampin' ladies, including a few of my favorites, Jacque, Shari and France!

For this card, I die cut the leaves from Autumn Accents in the Big Shot in a variety of colors, including Old Olive, More Mustard and Tangerine Tango. Then I sponged the edges with a Sponge Dauber in Rich Razzleberry ink.

I stamped the leaves using the new Illuminate ink pad, which is sparkly and gorgeous and I am in LOVE with it! You just can't see the sparkle in this photograph!

Finally I sprayed all the leaves pretty heavily with a mixture of rubbing alcohol and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, using the Spritzer Bottles. These leaves are SPARKLING! The sentiment here is from the stamp set From My Heart and punched with the Wide Oval Punch. I also used this stamp set for the inside of the card - see below. I pulled a center thread of a strip of Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon to get a pretty ruffle for this card. The Perfect Plum strip is also stamped in Illuminate ink and the bottom is die cut with the pretty, tiny scallop piece from Finishing Touches Edgelits.
