September Teasers Day 1

Welcome to Teaser Time week with My Favorite Things! Today I'm sharing a little of Lisa Johnson's new set, Fall Foliage, and it's definitely a must-have set. You can take a peek at all of today's featured teaser sets and Die-namics at the MFT Blog, but for now, let's take a look at Fall Foliage!

I've used one of the many leaves included in Fall Foliage to create a stunning background with minimal effort! Before stamping the leaves in Factory Green ink on the Olive layer, I die cut the Olive layer with the new Die-namics Mini Album Fancy Ticket STAX.  At the same time, I used one of the Pierced Rectangle STAX to die cut an opening where I knew I wanted to stamp a sentiment from Fall Foliage on the Factory Green card base. I love how these stamps and Die-namics make simple stamping elegant!

My second card follows the same 'simply stamped' rule with a single oak leaf from Fall Foliage in Fuse Green ink on a Fuse Green card base. To really emphasize the leaf and sentiment, I embossed a Pierced Rectangle STAX into the card base using Bar's tutorial on embossing with your Die-namics. I can't get enough of that technic, and again, it adds elegance with minimal effort!

My third and final card for today uses a few more of the leaves from Fall Foliage (seriously, there are so many wonderful options with this set) in an autumn color combination of Tangy Orange, Factory Green and Fuse Green on a Primitive Cream card base. The sentiment, also from Fall Foliage, is stamped on an Olive Fishtail Flag in Olive ink and tied up with a few rounds of hemp cord.

And there you have it, three simply stamped and easy to mass produce cards using Fall Foliage in a warm autumn palette! I hope you've enjoyed today's Teaser Time post and stop back tomorrow for more! The MFT Blog has complete Teaser Time information including full set reveals, prize information and links to each designer teasing along each day.

Hi Amy! Paulette loves the Fall Palette you used. I love your CAS style. I'm hoping some of it will rub off on me. I've got to try that die embossing trick. All 3 cards are just beautiful.
