Wrapped in Warmth Sneak Peak

When I browsed through the holiday mini catalog, the Wrapped in Warmth stamp set was the first one that caught my eye. It's a gorgeous, natural and down-to-earth stamp set for Christmas, but ironically I didn't even have Christmas plans for it! I saw the set, and immediately I thought of all the ways I could use it for fall! I have been so excited to get to crafting with it, and last night I finally had the chance!

I combined my new Wrapped in Warmth stamp set with the NEW cable knit embossing folder along with the Vintage Leaves stamp set (which is one of my favorites, by the way), and I created this warm and richly textured fall card. Doesn't it make you want to cozy up in a big sweater on a chilly day?

I LOVE the texture of the cable knit embossing folder. It makes a great background and adds so much to this card - especially on Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

And isn't that leaf beautiful? I have to credit my fiance for that one. I was spending so much time trying to perfect my leaf using my sponge dauber on the cardstock when he finally asked me why I didn't just dab my sponge directly onto my stamp! Oh my gosh! How could I have overlooked that great technique! Of course I followed his suggestion, and the result was perfection! I also used the sponge dauber on the edges of my leaf square and Keep Warm cardstock pieces to create some warmth. Sponged ink on Crumb Cake cardstock is one of my favorite looks.

So what do you think? Do you have any Christmas stamp sets you can use on a fall card?
