Fabulous Fall Gracious Glimpse

Time again to begin our Gracious Glimpses for the upcoming Design Team Delights (DTD) gallery opening at Christian Paper Crafts! Each day leading up to the gallery opening on the 15th you will be able to see new samples on the Christian Paper Crafts Creative Blog, just to give you a glimpse at what you’ll see inside the gallery when it is opened.  None of the projects that are posted in the DTD gallery will be shown anywhere else so if you are not a member of Christian Paper Crafts, please check it out.

I am up first with my gracious glimpse and always on the 10th of the month you will see a gracious glimpse from me for that months theme.  Since this months theme is Fabulous Fall, I decided to use this wonderful stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Cherish Friendship. 

For this card, I used a couple of techniques. It is only a two layer card, but the tangerine tango card stock is embossed at the top using the new SU stripe embossing folder and on the bottom of the card stock, I used the direct to paper technique to make a design on the bottom. That is where you use your actual ink pad and slide it down the card itself. I just love it as it looks as though the card has texture and there are times you get a wood look background. I also used my water color pencils here to do the chair to give it more of a stained effect. The flowers are colored using markers.  To separate the two different techniques on the tangerine tango card stock I used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch.

And, just FYI, if you are part of my stamping group you will be seeing this card again.

Here is a close up of the arrangement and the technique.
