When I get bored or just lazy I usually binge watch card making or baking videos on YouTube. I watch a lot of baking videos...a lot of Cu...

I'm back, I still have sooooo much to get done. It occurred to me that I don't have a free weekend until the second week in December. WOW!!! I'm a busy bee!!! I think I need to get organized make a plan and stick to it! But in the mean time I've created a little card today. It's very simple and the colors didn't photograph well but in real life it looks so cool. I used the baby wipe technique for the leaves. If you've never done the baby wipe technique it's so super easy. Take a small stack of baby wipes and drop a few drops of reinker on them, I just used small dots all over the baby wipe, then you have your own custom, temporary, ink pad. Stamp as you normally would. I love this technique for the Gently Falling set, the leaves are sooo pretty!!!
For my leaves the reinker colors that I used were, Baja Breeze, More Mustard and Old Olive. An unusual color combo but it works! For the rest of the card, I sponged the outside with Soft Suede and used my color spritzer tool with Soft Suede too. So pretty!!! This would be a great make and take or class card, it's simple but pretty, and you could do a ton in a short amount of time, which the way the rest of my year looks is a good thing!!!
