Fall is Here, Color Everywhere!
We are loving all the possibilities with Cooler Stamp Cocept materials! See what Debi created today!
So often people think of spring as the season of color. Well coming from a place that is basically green all year round. By the way where I am from we have two seasons Hot and Hotter… When I recently had the fortunate to experience the change of season I was a child again! I ran through my yard with arms filled with gold, purple, and blood red leaves. I carried them around collecting more and more until my arms ached from the load. I was afraid they would blow away unless I collected them.
Well I tried everything to preserve them but nothing could capture the color, until I realized that I could save them digitally. So take out the camera and save!
Well I want so much to show my Grand-daughter the beautiful colors of fall. I could ship her some leaves, but I decided to make her a little tote that she could carry with her. I decorated it with photos of my beloved leaves!
I used my inkjet printer to make a montage of all of my leaves and then printed out a sheet of them. I was able to cut the lettering out of my eCraft I used a very light pressure setting of two and it worked great for my “Fall”.
Then off to the eBosser to make my leaf shapes. I used thin metal dies made by Sizzix and they work wonderfullly in this machine.
I actually left the dies attached to the card and was able to cut them at one time. I love this so that I don’t misplace a die (I know you never do that right.) I am in love with my eBosser.
Can’t wait to get this in the post for my girl. Well have you gotten your eBosser yet? Please leave me a comment and let me know how you are using yours. I would love to hear from you! Happy Fall!
