Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps - Autumn Greetings

It is my day to post on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog. We just had our BIG September Release on Friday! Click HERE to read about that! What a sweet collection of autumn-themed stamps and dies!

I made a simple tag and pocket project to share with you today, using some of the new goodies!

I found this kraft envelope, (3 1/2 x 6 inches) in my stash. I actually found 3-4 of these guys, and while I was tempted to HOARD them, I made a gift card and tag holder out of one instead!

To decorate the envelope, I started by rubbing the edges with Vintage Photo ink. I stamped the leaves from the Falling Leaves stamp set in various colors of orange, red, and gold ink across the center of the envelope. To achieve the look of multi-colored ink, just tap various ink pads to the stamp. Be careful to use your light colors FIRST to avoid a mishap such as getting red ink on your yellow ink pad!

I die cut the tree from the Forest Silhouettes die set out of brown cardstock and "planted" it to look like the leaves had fallen off the branches. I cut the fence from the Fence and Grass die set out of cream cardstock. I rubbed the fence with a bit of tan ink and added it to the envelope with foam squares.

I stamped the sentiments from the Autumn Mum Greetings stamp set onto gold paper with brown ink. I trimmed the sentiments to look like signs and added them to the envelope with foam squares.

To make the matching tag, I trimmed a Graphic 45 regular kraft tag a tiny bit on each side to make it fit into my envelope. 

The kraft paper was the same shade, which made this a perfect match! {grin}

I rubbed the edges with ink and stamped the sentiment from the Autumn Mum Greetings stamp set with brown ink in the center of the tag.

I used the leaf dies from Leaf Silhouettes die set to trim out a few paper scraps. I rubbed the leaves with ink and added them to the corner of the tag. I tied some ribbon and twine to the top of the tag. The back of the tag is blank to enable me to add a gift card or write a message.
