I was super motivated as soon as I opened the Huntington paper. It is so beautiful and just works perfectly for the fall season. Here is a super-quick and simple card. I took the basic design from Make It From Heart - Vol. 1 (Pg. 43 - Pattern 21).
Please bear with me as I try to figure out my lighting. I usually take photos outside or under natural light, but it was so incredibly windy today, it just didn't happen. As a result, you don't really see the true "bling" effect of the Bronze Shimmer Trim.
I've demonstrated a couple of stamping techniques here. The first one is on the flower image. I call it "rock the block". All you do is ink up your image with one color (in this case, Honey), and then only ink the edges of the image with a second color (Sunset) by rolling only the edge of the stamp on the stamp pad. Note: Always start with the light color first! :) You don't want to end up with a messy stamp pad. The second technique is just background stamping. Just think how boring this card would be if the image was only stamped on colonial white cardstock. I thought it would be a great way to add a little more bright fall colors.
