Masking With Autumn Accents Die-Cuts

When I was cutting supplies for my Autumn Accents Stamp Club project last week, I had a bunch of leftover pieces that had been die-cut and I thought, why not put those to good use…

Masked leaves - two cool

So, I created Two Cool cards using the die-cut Autumn Accents windows as a mask.  I sponged with the same colors that I used in my previous Wonderfall card…love this combination!

Simply lay your die-cut windows on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and sponge in a small circular motion.  TIP: Start your sponging on the mask and work toward the card stock to avoid an abrupt ink smudge on your card stock.

Continue adding more sponged leaves, overlapping some of the edges.

I added my sponged leaves to a layer of Cajun Craze card stock with a Finishing Touches Edgelit Border, then adhered it to my Midnight Muse card base.

I stamped Wonderfall leaf for the bottom of the card (learn tips on how to stamp on die-cuts), then added some Not Quite Navy Taffeta Ribbon tails for some added color.  The Itty Bitty Banner sentiment is die-cut with the Bitty Banners Framelit, then attached with a Vintage Trinket brad.

For the second card, I tried stamping Wonderfall leaves over the top of the sponged leaves.

Probably should have used a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig for more accurate positioning, but I still like overall look!  Beautiful, rich colors!  Finished with more Not Quite Navy Taffeta Ribbon and a Sassy Salutations sentiment.
