Tutorial Tuesdays: Maple Leaves Fall with the Autumn Breeze - Wall Hanging tutorial by Val!

Howzit Stamping Friends!
 It's Tutorial Tuesday time and LeighSBDesigner Val is here today to show you how she made her beautiful Fall/Autumn inspired Wall Hanging🍁

Hi Everyone, 
This is Val and I'm excited to share my second tutorial here at LeighSBDesigns today featuring the wonderful new LeighSBDesigns release, Tangled Maple Leaf, which is currently available at a special promo price of only $1!!!!  This fantastic price ends TONIGHT at midnight PDT🍁
BOTH NEW RELEASES ARE ON SALE FOR ONLY A $1 EACH!  Special release promo ends at midnight PDT Sept 5!

For my tutorial today I made an autumn inspired Wall Hanging.

 I started by printing out the Tangled Maple Leaf digi onto Neenah white cardstock and coloured it up with Spectrum Noir Markers and Colorista Markers by Crafter's Companion.  

I used the following colours from each marker range:

Spectrum Noir Markers
 GB1, GB4 and TN5

Colorista Markers
Sandstone and Rose Red

Tip:  I like to scribble my colours next to my image so I can plan which colours I want to use and where.

Prepare 3 mats for the wall hanging by cutting two panels from black cardstock measuring 6 inches by 9 inches and 7 inches by 10 inches and one white panel measuring 6.25 inches by 9.5 inches.

I fussy cut out the leaf leaving a narrow white border so the leaf would stand out nicely from the black background and then adhered the leaf to the first black panel using PVA tacky glue. 

I then mat and layered the black card onto white and again onto black card.   I used red ribbon for the hanger and inserted the ribbon ends and adhered them in place between the black and white panels using double sided-tape. 

I used Serif CraftArtist2 software to create the wording and printed out the text onto Neenah white cardstock.  I cut out each word separately and adhered them to the wall hanging with tacky glue. 

Materials used:
LeighSBDesigns Tangled Maple Leaf digi stamp
Spectrum Noir Markes
 Spectrum Noir Colorista Markers
Serif CraftArtist2 software
Red Ribbon
Black and white cardstock
PVA Tacky Glue
Double sided sticky tape
Thanks for stopping by to see my project today!
