ID: MC Oct/18 Easel Maple Leaves - ECD Rejoice - Autumn The Year's Last card
size: 7"w x 5"H (easel closed)

Created: October 1, 2018

Suzanne came out with a bunch of new A Way With Word dies and I choose the Rejoice to play with this time BIG GRIN.

I'm using an A Way With Words dies  "Rejoice" from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

Also using one of the newest Fall stamps from Suzanne available on Quietfire Design

 ("Autumn Collection" 4pce set); ("With Every Leaf A Miracle" 6pce set)


Scored and folded my cream toned cardstock to create the easel structure. Cut another piece from amid toned brown textured cardstock same size as card and adhered to front. 

Die cut the cream oval (Elizabeth Craft Designs "Stitched Ovals" set). Using my Tim's Platform, stamped the quote using Distress Oxide pads ("Mustard Yellow" all over and "Abandoned Coral" here and there). Stamped. Moved my card a fraction of an inch over and down, inked the stamp with Versafine Black Onyx, stamped and clear embossed. Adhered oval to front.

I had colored some cream cardstock the night before so it would be totally dry the next day... Inked with the Oxides in the yellow, coral and some Mowed Lawn. Spritzed with Perfect Pearl Mists "Cappuccino". Die cut with Tim's "Layered Leaf" Bigz die, then embossed with the included embossing folder. Hit the high points with Distress pad "Aged Mahogany".  Adhered to front cutting of the excess and adhering them around...

I had the Rejoice in my stash die cut from a Kleenex box... Adhered to front.

Die cut and stamped the Butterfly (Tim's Entomology stamp and die set. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this set even though I don't particularly care for bugs BIG GRIN.


On the Floor: stamped the quote using the same technique as on front of card.

Adhered one of the leaves partially on the floor to act as my stopper and the rest of the off cuts around the edge.

Adhered the ladybug (also from Tim's Entomology set)
