Autumn Sampler with Sunflowers, Autumn Essentials and Gathered Leaves Dies

I've created samplers for every season except autumn (Here are some of my other seasonal samplers: Summer, Spring, Winter) and I decided it was time to change that today. I wanted to use dies as much as possible so that if I decided to use it as a class I would be able to put a card kit together. I made use of a couple of the current Designer Series Paper packages and some great sentiments that are mostly part of the stamp sets I was using. 

Here's a closer look:

  • It's probably better to start in the upper left corner and take you around the sampler in a clockwise direction. The top corner is a 4 5/8" square and the top layer is covered with paper from the In Good Taste DSP pack. On it I have die cut two different sunflowers, one from Mango Melody for the outline and So Saffron for the background, and the other from Cinnamon Cider for the outline and Crumb Cake for the background. The leaves are Old Olive, and the centres are Early Espresso.
  • The rectangle in the upper right is 5 5/8" x 1 7/8" and is covered with some of the World of Good Specialty DSP. I stamped the sentiment from Country Home stamp set right on it with Early Espresso ink and added a die cut grass in Gray Granite from the Sunflowers Dies.

  • For the next two small 2 1/8" squares, I used more of the World of Good DSP for one and the Copper Brushed Metallic Cardstock embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder for the other. On the left square I added several grasses die cut using the Autumn Essential Dies and tied in a bundle with the Honey Bee Gingham Ribbon. On the right die I added a Cinnamon Cider pumpkin outline from the Autumn Essential dies.

  • On the bottom right the four small squares have a) a small stamped sunflower,  from the Sunflower Celebrations, coloured with Stampin' Blends, with a bow from Honey Bee Gingham Ribbon b) More of the World of Good DSP, with a sentiment  and image from Gather Together on it.        c) Very Vanilla with a leaf image from Positive Thoughts, stamped in Mango Melody with a little Cajun Craze tapped around the edges using a sponge dauber right to the stamp and d) more In Good Taste DSP with a sentiment from Beautiful Moments stamped in Early Espresso and a little knot in the Honey Bee Gingham Ribbon.
  • The rectangle panel is also done with the In Good Taste DSP, and it has several pumpkins from Autumn Essential Dies on it.

  • The rectangular panel in the bottom left is covered with the Copper Brushed Metallic cardstock, embossed using the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder. On top of that is the Country Home images stamped in Memento ink and coloured using Stampin' Blends markers.

  • All around the sampler are leaves in So Saffron, Cajun Craze and Old Olive die cut using the Gathered Leaves dies!

    I can hardly wait to put it in my Shadow Box and display it! 

    Would any of you be interested in having a kit to make this sampler? I can package all the paper and die cuts and do the embossing you need for this along with any embellishment. You would need to either provide your own stamps for the stamped images, or substitute what you have, or purchase from me.

    Let me know if you would like me to make this into a class. I can do a YouTube video tutorial to go along with it!
