Colors of Fall Kaleidoscope Just Rite 040
The colorsof Fall are beginning to show as the warmer temperatures of summer are becomming a distant memory. Swirling together the different colors of leaves provide a moving kaleidoscope of colors. And so, I began to think of creating a Colors of Fall card. A stamp from Just Rite's Kaleidoscope Set was stamped (Stazon Ink) on a piece of heavyweight acetate. It was cut using a Spellbinders circle. A larger background was cut using a larger Spellbinders Scallop Circle. I used all the Copic marker "fall" colors I have and covered the background piece with a myriad of pinpoints of color. I punched a small hole in the center of the acetate and background and put them together with a brown brad to create a movable "kaleidoscope of color". Next, I found a paper from Webster Pages that reminded me of a waning summer. Flower Soft enhanced a printed tree to remind of fall colors. Next was adding the Beauty of Fall (perfect stamp for this card!) from Just Rite's Nature Nested Sentiments and Verse. I used a Spellbinder tag to punch out an oblong in the card front. The same tag was used to create the frame around the space. The sentiment was stamped on a coordinating piece of the Webster paper and mounted (pop dots) behind the opening. Layered on brown then cream cardstock, the font of the card was done and it was time to use my Dad's sentiment on the inside. I found a maple leaf pattern on website http://www.kids.creativity-portal.com/ and used it as the background piece. The title Colors of Fall was stamped using Just Rite's Special Occasions 15 and 50 pt sets. To "tired" stamp the entire sentiment, I turned to my computer to finish: "Notice the leaf colors.........................Now you know Fall is here." Colored leaf punch outs (EK Success punch) were used instead of words (red, orange, yellow, gold, brown, and burgundy). I next created a mask to block out the big leaf and spritzed the rest of the page with Tattered Angel's Burnt Red Glimmer Mist. My card is done; time to turn the kaleidoscope and watch the swirling colors of fall. May fall's vibrant colors inspire you!
