Fall is When Nature Turns to Gold Stamped Card

card 1
 This stamp, Fall is When Nature Turns to Gold, was the perfect fit for the Frilly and Funkie A Touch of Gold Challenge.  Not too long ago I came across this amazing blog, Hands to Work Hearts to Love, and saw THIS card.  Linda mentioned how she wished she had more of these lovely fall flowers and I decided to post the DIY Fall Paper Flower Embellishments post HERE.  I didn't get the color I wanted on those, so I went to Hobby Lobby and picked up three sheets different shades of rust, orange, and gold paper and had a second playday making fall flowers.

 For this flower I first stamped the dies with a script stamp.  Next I spritzed them with water, then pinched together the tips of each petal and curled them under.  After they were dry, I layered them and attached a DIY Button Brad.

 Linda's tag pocket cards are truly amazing and I just had to make my own.  Thanks Linda for sharing this wonderful idea.  I would buy all of your cards on Etsy if I could!

 I layered my bundle of Stampers Anonymous leaves and pumpkin colored twine up, from HL, under the flower.  I chose this lovely Authentique paper because I liked the way the design was all in the corner.
card 5
 I really liked the three different colors layered together for this flower.
card 6
I made all of these flowers and more with those three sheets of 12x12 paper.  I shared a bunch with my mom.  My favorites are in the middle with the Tattered Florals die.  I curled each petal around a thin paintbrush handle.  Hope you are inspired to create some embellishments for your fall crafts today.
