Out on a Limb with My Favorite Things!


I can not tell you how excited I am to finally share this post with you!  I am guest designing with My Favorite Things this month.........did I ever get a fabulous month to be their guest!!  Yes, I know they heard me squeal in Florida when I got my package!  :)

I've been a fan of Lisa Johnson's work for a looonnnggg time.......this set she designed this month is just fabulous!  I'm showing off the Out on a Limb stamp set which has a coordinating Die-namics set that can be used with the stamps or alone.  Love this!  Everything will be available for purchase in the MFT store on September 16, 10PM EST.

I pulled out my Distress Markers, colored onto my stamp, and spritzed with water.  Stamping with this technique gives such fun results!  Instead of the traditional layered card, I skewed my brown and Tangy Orange panels just a bit.  (I did trim down my base to allow for the overage so this would still fit in an A2 envie.)

I did add some other small details......some Wink of Stella to the leaves and a tiny scallop negative strip to both the top and the bottom of the panel.  (I used the tiny scallop border die from Blueprints 19....releasing this month!)

Very beautiful! I love how you gave the leaves multicolors just like if they were really on a tree during the Fall season!
