Also in the Holiday Mini Catalog is a beautiful fall stamp set called Gently Falling. I received Gently Falling for FREE as a perk for my title with Stampin' Up! It came in a kit with the Spice Cake Fabric, DSP and Big Buttons, all for FREE! This is just one of the many perks of joining my team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators.
Gently Falling is a 2-Step Stamp set meaning that you ink the solid image in one color and then over stamp the line art image with a darker color. I used the Baby Wipe Technique for the solid leaf stamps and then over stamped them in Soft Suede. The Perfectly Penned greeting set uses this beautiful font that is just perfect this card!
I used the Brand NEW Simply Scored Tool to create my Z Fold Card. I cannot tell you how fast the scoring went on these 30 cards. I used the place markers at 2 1/4 & 5 1/2 and I scored all 30 in about 5 minutes. This tool is a MUST HAVE!!!! Order in in my Online Store item #122334.
BARB'S TIP: Baby Wipe Technique – take a baby wipe and fold it in half, I like to place it in my Powder Pal Tray to protect my work surface from the ink. Add drops of ink creating thick lines or a pattern of circles and use the baby wipe as your ink pad. Be careful not to muddle the colors when you are inking the stamp. You may want to clean your stamp between inkings.
This was my Control Freaks Holiday Mini Swap Card. Leave me a comment and tell me what you think of it.
