Creative With Stamps; September Challenge

Can you believe it's already September? Autumn is just around the corner and hopefully some cooler weather! The monthly challenge at Creative With Stamps is:

For this month's card challenge, I made this:

Some close ups:

I used an old Stampin' Up leaf collection and some FSJ inks in Autumn colors. Have you made these cards before? It is so fun and so easy. I've done this before with three layers but liked it best with two. 

Basically, you cut your cardstock (kraft) into rectangle layers. For this card, the sizes are 4x5.25 and 3x4. Since my card base is white, I only needed to cut one more mat which was cut at 3.25 x 4.25. 

Stack the kraft layers on top of each other and then stamp as if it were one piece. (Use a removeable adhesive to hold them in place) Then you mat the pieces and adhere them as best as you can to line up the stamped images.

I added twine to the top layer and tied a double bow before popping on the sentiment.

The sentiment is one of those $1 stamps at Michaels that I purchased years ago too.

Now it's your turn, add your card to the link at Creative With Stamps. I can't wait to see what you come up with!


  1. Isn't it wonderful how a $1 stamp can do so much for a card? I love the double time stamping. I recognized the SU stamps right away. Great card!

  2. I have always had trouble figuring out just how to put my kraft card stock to work, but your design has inspired me! It will definitely get put to use in my craft room in the near future...


Thanks for visiting. I appreciate your comments. I love sharing my projects with you and hope to encourage you to create things on your own. Thanks again!
