Our liquid amber tree has been heavily dropping it's autumn canopy in thick drifts of leaves all over the driveway and front garden. The colours are spectacular as usual, and having been away in Italy for 2 weeks, we nearly missed it!
Yep, that's right, it's almost done, the tree is nearly bare.
It makes me feel a bit like how I felt 2 days ago when I saw a gorgeous card posted on Facebook using the Vintage Leaves stamp set and the person mentioned the stamp set was retiring out of the Stampin' Up! annual catalogue and would no longer be available after Thursday this week!
What?? No Way!!
How did I miss that??
I LOVE that stamp set and matching framelits! I can't believe they are being retired off! I haven't even finished making cards with that set!
Only a few weeks ago I was trialing the Stampin' Slap technique with the Vintage Leaves stamp set and the Stamparatus. So much fun and so effective, and very reminiscent of how my garden looks now!
Don't you just love the watercolourly effect and those beautiful autumn colours?
This splattery technique is so much fun and can be achieved so easily with the new Stamparatus, some inkspots or Stampin' Write markers and a mist bottle of water.
I can see that I need to use these beautiful pieces to make some finished cards in the next day or so! And if you haven't got Vintage Leaves in your collection and need to have it, then you need to order it today or tomorrow as it won't be available after the catalogue finishes midnight tomorrow night.
You can order it online by clicking on either of the thumbnail pictures below - and while you are there, don't forget that it's also the last couple of days to order the Share What You Love - Gotta Have it All early release product suite which includes three (3) free products one being the limited edition "Statement of My Heart" stamp - not available after Thursday.
Send me a message if you prefer not to order online - I can help you out via email or phone.
