Today's card design is one of the projects from my For All Things Stamp-of-the-Month Class!  We're creating a total of 5 projects using the featured For All Things fall-themed stamp set.  I've already blogged about two of the projects and you can see them at these links:
Class is October 9.  Pre-paid registration is due September 26, 2014.

Deco window - hello fall       

Background Basics—My Very Vanilla card base is layered with a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Blackberry Bliss for the foundation of the card front.  I created a lifted layer from 3-3/4" x 5" Cajun Craze card stock that's die-cut with the Deco Labels Collection Framelits.

Lifted Layer Details— I added a 3-3/4" x 1" strip of Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper at the bottom of the die-cut layer, then added some Blackberry Bliss Color Me Autumn Washi Tape above it.  Remember, you'll get a full package of the washi tape in your class kit, so you can choose your tape! 

I wrapped the layer with 1/8" Crushed Curry Taffeta Ribbon, tied in a double-knot and trimmed.

Recessed Window Stamping—I stamped the For All Things watercolor wash image in stamped off Soft Suede onto a 3-1/2" square piece of Very Vanilla card stock, then added the branch in Old Olive over the top. To layer it, I added Dimensionals around the window, then positioned the stamped layer in place and adhered it to the window.  Then, I went back and added more dimensionals to the rest of the back of that layer to secure it into place.

Sweet Sentiment—On a scrap piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the For All Things banner image in Crushed Curry ink, then added the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss.  It's hand-cut and popped up with Dimensionals after the window layer was added.

Sensational Sequins—I added a few Gold Sequins around the image with tiny dabs of Multipurpose Glue.  You'll notice that 4 out of 5 of the class projects use these sequin accents. I designed these projects with similar papers and embellishments, so you can either use them individually, or give them together as a gift.  Coordination rocks!

Two Cool—My second version is on the horizonal and I tried some different stamping, so you could see how awesome these images layer with one another. Instead of the wash image, I stamped the oak leaf in stamped-off Crushed Curry for the backdrop.  The sentiment is on the back layer this time.  And, the acorns are stamped in Soft Suede, hand-cut and popped up with Dimensionals. 

It's so fun to mix & match the elements in different ways!
