A Flower for Fall

Tonight I made another sample for this month's stamp camp. I used the new stamp set called A Flower for All Seasons, which I just fell in love with when I first saw it in the catalog.
Since this is September, I used the Sunflower image because it goes so well with fall colors. I stamped the image in basic black ink on whisper white card stock and colored it in using my aqua painter and summer sun, chocolate chip, old olive and riding hood red inks. The summer sun and really rust parts were a little light, though, so after the image dried I went over those parts with my stampin' write markers.
For the base I used really rust card stock and stamped it with the Sanded background using really rust ink. I then took a piece of chocolate chip card stock and wrapped a piece of 5/8" old olive grosgrain ribbon around it (with a faux knot, of course). I then added riding hood red and summer sun mats to my main image and attached it to the chocolate chip card stock over the ribbon with two dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Say it with scallops set in chocolate chip ink on whisper white card stock and cut it out with my paper snips before attaching it to tags punched out of riding hood red and summer sun card stock with the small and large tag punches. I used my 1/16" handheld punch to punch a hole in the tag through which I threaded some red hemp twine and used it to attach the tag to the old olive ribbon. Then all I had to do was to attach the tag to the card with a dimensional.
It's a cute little card and it was very fast and fun to make. I'm sure everyone at the stamp camp will enjoy it!
