Gently Falling ‘Giving Thanks’ card

Stampin' Up! Gently Falling Stamp Set
I just simply love this new set of outline/inline stamps ‘Gently Falling’ from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Mini Catalog.

In fact, I actually got my act together and created a video (if you are reading this via Feedburner mail, you can’t see the video).

You’ll see that my hand is bandaged… I got the idea to give my cat a flea-bath. Seemed like a good idea at the time.  I have stitches, antibiotics and a tetanus shot for my efforts. Anyone want an orange tabby cat? Spayed and all her shots.

But I digress.

The card is Very Vanilla on Crumb Cake.  The ink is Crumb Cake and the leaf is Wild Wasabi and Pumpkin Pie done with the ‘rolling’ technique.  This is an old technique that’s been around forever, however it is easier ‘seen than said,’ if you get what I mean.

I want to credit Erika Clark for the inspiration for this card!

  2. Amy,
    thanks for sharing this wonderful technique. It’s a good reminder to use it again for these beautiful leaves. My big mistake was buying this set in wood, the clear mount would have been easier to use. Also a good tip using the alcohol to keep the stamp on the clear mount.
    Sorry to hear your cat messed your hand up. Hope your okay now….
    Hugs, Marge

  3. Your card is very elegant!! Thanks so much for the tutorial, I have never seen it done that way and think it comes out looking cleaner by stamping off and then adding the 2nd color. I love this technique, especially this time of year. Thanks so much for sharing!!
    Hugs, Kim

    Thanks Kim… I featured this card in my class last month, but the technique is really better shown than said. Not a new technique or ground breaking but it does work exceptionally well for bold leaves.

  4. Cute card, Amy…and sorry about your hand and the cat injury. They just don’t like water, do they? We only have dogs and there’s a reason for that…despite being Labs, mine are not overly fond of water either so I suspect they are chickens in a dog suit but I did hear a great tip for giving a cat a bath. Something like putting kitty shampoo in the commode then adding the cat, quickly slamming the lid and sitting on it for a few minutes while the kitty “agitates” in the wash cycle. Then flush twice for the rinse cycle and stand clear as the cat will eject from the “wash basin” and explode down the hall and you do NOT want to be in the way. ha, ha! Ok, so maybe this isn’t really the best idea but it sure does remove the human element from the bath. Or maybe a “dry shampoo” powder for cats….and then there is always the groomer. You can pay someone else to do the dirty work, wonder if they would work for stamps???
