Salsa Stampers! DIY Time -- Autumn Cards and a Blender Pen Recipe: Tweet Leaves and Gently Falling

Note:  All page numbers refer to the 2012-2013 Idea Book and Catalog unless otherwise indicated.

This technique is great to use with the Naturals White or Ivory c/s (pg. 160) as it has a heavier weight and will take the water color spritzing well.   

Tweet Leaves Card:
Stamps:  Tweet Leaves pg. 31 in Holiday catalog, Lacy and Lovely, pg. 99
Ink:  Early Espresso
C/S:  Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive
Extras:  Woodgrain embossing folder, pg. 33 in Holiday catalog, Autumn Accents die, pg. 33 in Holiday catalog, Oval punch, pg. 184, Circles #2 die, pg. 193,  1 ¾” circle punch, pg. 184

·         Fold Daffodil Delight card base and set to one side.  Emboss Soft Suede c/s using the Woodgrain Embossing folder.  Sponge with Crumb Cake ink and layer onto the Daffodil Delight base. 
·         Stamp Tweet Leaves stamp onto already cut out leaf using Early Espresso ink.  Allow to dry and color in.  Stamp another image onto the Very Vanilla c/s and punch out the bird using the 1 ¾” circle punch.  Color in the bird and layer onto the larger Daffodil Delight circle.  Layer onto the leaf using dimensionals. 
·         Take the Crumb Cake piece to the Big Shot and die cut the oak leaf.  I’ve done the rest of the leaves for you.
·         Take each leaf and crunch up, then lightly sponge over the crunched areas with Crumb Cake ink. 
·         Attach leaves to the card using adhesive.  Attach the Tweet Bird image using dimensionals.
·         Stamp and punch out sentiment using Oval Punch.  Add to your card using dimensionals and you are done!

Gently Falling Cards:
Stamps:  Gently Falling, pg. 86,  Blooming with Kindness, pg. 87,
Ink:  Chocolate Chip
Markers:  Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Riding Hood Red, Wild Wasabi 
C/S: Naturals White, pg. 160
Extras: Naturals Designer Button pg. 176, linen thread ,pg. 173, Stamp-a-ma-jig, pg.7, Color Spritzer Tool,  pg.179, Stampin' Spritzer, pg. 179

·         Apply markers on the solid leaf image using 3-4 markers in various shades of autumn colors. Spritz just a little with a fine mist of water.  Stamp onto the surface of your paper and allow to dry.  Do this technique again and stamp another leaf onto your card with the stems crossing. 
·         Using Stamp-a-ma-jig, stamp line design over the previous image using Chocolate Chip ink.
·         Spritz with Chocolate Chip and Riding Hood Red markers and Color Spritzer Tool
·         Stamp sentiment on the front and inside.
