Power Poppy's August Stamp Release~Day 3!

 Hi there and welcome back for Day 3 of Power Poppy's August Stamp Release!  Today's stamp set, Feeling Fall, is the final set in Marcella's Nature and Nurture collection. This set has some absolutely adorable images and sentiments!

For my card today, I chose the sweet coffee mug with gourds.  I stamped my image with Memento's Tuxedo Black ink onto a panel of Papertrey Ink's Rustic Cream card stock.  I colored my image with Copics and then spritzed some inks to distress it a bit.  Next, I added some strips of patterned paper from Carta Bella's "Autumn" 6x6 pad with stitching.  The sentiment got a little special treatment- I inked it up using PTI's Dark Chocolate, Terracotta Tile, and Summer Sunrise inks to give it a gradient look.  Next, I decided to round the bottom corners with a We R Memory Keepers 3/8" Corner Chomper.  Lastly, I adhered my panel to a card base and added some ribbon, button, and twine.  This finished card size is  3 1/2" x 5".

I just love those little gourds!  They are really fun and quite quick to color up.  If you can believe it, I did not use a single die for this card....or gold leafing!  

For the inside of my card I used the leaf images, added a bit of patterned paper, and rounded the corners with a We R Memory Keepers 1/4" Corner Chomper.

Those little leaves are adorable, don't you think?  :)  I am really getting in the fall frame of mind and am SO ready for some fall about you?

So that is all for my little card today, but my Bloomie sisters have once again created an amazing selection of card inspiration just for you!  You certainly want to check out Marcella's post over on the Power Poppy blog.  Make sure you leave them all a little blog love and then please come back by tomorrow for the Power Poppy Blog Hop!  Thanks so much for stopping by and I can't wait to see you tomorrow....until then, take care!  :)
