Color Me Autumn

This is one of my favorite papers in the new Holiday Catalog.  I used Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper . The dots on the card are hot glue that was melted onto the Stampin' Up Silicon Sheet that I brayered with Gold Encore Ink.

The stamp set is For All Things.

To make the dots:
  1. Use a brayer and ink your silicon sheet.  Make sure you have a good layer of ink.
  2. Use a hot melt clear glue stick and drop dots on your silicon sheet on the ink.  (Cool temperature glue sticks will not work.)
  3. Let your dots cool, peel them off and adhere them to your project using liquid glue or a glue dot.
  4. This will work with any Stampin' Up ink.
