Beautiful Autumn Layers

Monday's are fun days at Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge and we are excited to see what you have to share.  This week is all about combing your stamps and punches or dies.  
I love Fall so I went straight for my Leaf Blueprint Framelit and Stamp set.  This is such a fun set to play with and layer.  


I love, love, love creating tags.  They are such a great place to start for a background.


The Handwritten Love Thinlits are a perfect layer.


I embossed the wheat stamp from the Fall Silhouette stamp set.  The "Autumn" stamp is inked from the Thankful Word stamp then smudged.  I love smudging images,


I stamped, inked and cut the leafy bits out.  Then I added some dimension and a little Clear Rock Candy Stickles.


I inked up the tag using one of my DIY Custom Blend Ink Pads.  Then spritzed it it to distress.  Add some linen ribbon and an Idea-Ology trinket and done!


Have a look at how you can stamp and punch.  You can go nuts and layer or you can keep it simple.  Looking forward to seeing your projects.
