Soft Seedlings and Daubers for Fall Cards

September is my “go ahead” for making fall cards. Today, I went with quick and easy Fall cards using the Soft Seedlings Stamp Set. The Soft Seedlings stamp is a “distinktive” stamp. Thus, it shows the details of the leaf, such as the tiny veins. I love this! To achieve a “fall-like” image, ink was applied to the maple leaf using stamp pads and daubers. Daubers allow me to apply as much or as little color, as desired. I love the transition and vibrancy of colors!

The colors for the card bases were Pear Pizzazz and Sahara Sand paired with the matching Designer Series Paper. The Natural Finish Ribbon was perfect for stamping the sentiment “thinking of you” and adhering it to the stamped layer. A little “bling” using Elegant Faceted Gems and Amber Gems and I was done! Truly, simple stamping!

Ready to see how to use the daubers to apply color to stamps? Watch the video below and see how I made these two cards! Further down, you will find the measurements, written instructions and supply list. I would love to hear from you! Leave me a comment below and let me know which one you like best!
