PPA115 Fall Inspiration Challenge


Hi Stampers! 

Wow- this week’s inspiration photo for the PPA115Pals Paper Arts Fall Challenge has so many possibilities! If you have the time, stop by and visit the Pals Paper Arts site, you will see so many wonderful samples of fall cards and projects- enough ideas for weeks!  

I wanted to create a card that was a bit more masculine, so for this card, I decided to use several techniques (you know how much we love our stamping tools)  Rock -n- Roll, Emboss Resist and Dry Embossing and Embedded Embossing.   Unfortunately, this card was difficult to photograph and it does look better IRL:-)).



To create this card:

With the oak leaf image from Gently Falling, stamp first in Versamark™,  then into More Mustard Classic Ink , then roll into Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Classic Ink (for two of the leaves) and the third leaf, More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede.  

Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Clear Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.  Use a Sponge Dauber to apply Soft Suede and Basic Black ink, gently wipe off the excessive ink and carefully cut out the leaves.

Adhere the leaves to a piece of Basic Black cardstock and layer onto Early Espresso. Use the Big Shot™ along with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss the entire leaf panel.   Also with the Square Lattice EF, emboss a piece of More Mustard and with the Stripes Textured Impressions™ EF, emboss a piece of Whisper White.

Tear the edges of the embossed More Mustard panel along with a panel of Basic Black and layer the panels. 

Add the 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon and the sentiment (rock –n-roll into More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede).

Stamp Sets:  Gently Falling, Day of Gratitude

Ink: Versamark™, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede, Basic Black

Cardstock:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Early Espresso, More Mustard

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Square Lattice and Stripes Textured Impressions™ Embossing 
Folder, 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon, Decorative Label Punch

I am so thankful that you stopped by today- have a wonderful week!

**************ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS *******************************
Thank you so much for the wonderful comments on this card- some of you have requested additional information on the "Rock -N-Roll" Technique (thanks Joyce!) :-))


This card was created when Stampin' Up! still had the linen pads and it uses the "Rock -n- Roll" technique (you can create with the firm foam pads but I would recommend the Sponge Dauber technique described below).

In either method, first ink the entire stamp in Versamark (since this is a pigment ink it dries slower than the Classic Ink), then gently place the edges of the stamp in the Soft Suede ink and turn/roll the stamp around (just touching the edges of the leaf on the ink pad and leaving the center of the stamp with the More Mustard/yellow). Repeat onto the other color, in this case, Cherry Cobbler (if applicable). 

Immediately stamp the image onto your cardstock (important to use the Embossing Buddy since this will help the Embossing Powder stick where it should :-)), apply the Clear Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.

Clean the stamp off before stamping /rolling the next image- I embossed each one separate since the Versamark can dry before rocking and rolling each leaf :-)

You can try this method with the newer foam pads but I found that too much ink is released from the firm foam, so I prefer to first ink the stamp in Versamark, then into the More Mustard/yellow color.  Then position the stamp face up and with a Sponge Dauber, lightly "pounce" the additioal colors onto the edges of the stamp- not too hard so you do not remove all of the Versamark, then repeat the stamping onto the cardstock/EP/Heat as described above :-) 


Then proceed with the "Emboss Resist"/"fussy-Cut" steps in the tutorial to finish off the card :-)

I hope this helps and that you have a great time making this card! 

Thanks again to all of you  for taking the time to visit my blog and your wonderful comments :-) 

God Bless!

What a beautiful card!!!

Now it's time for a dumb question.

When you say you stamp in Versamark and then in Mustard and then roll in the other colors do you mean you
stamp in Mustard just like you did the Versamark?
and then just got edges of the other colors?

I'll probably end up with ink from head to toe if I don't clear this up.

Thank you!

Hi Joyce!

Yes, this card was created when Stampin' Up! still had the linen pads and it uses the "rock -n- Roll" technique (you can create with the firm foam pads but I would recommend the Sponge Dauber technique described below).

Immediately stamp onto your cardstock (important to use the Embossing Buddy since this will help the Embossing Powder stick where it should belong :-)), apply the Clear Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.

Clean the stamp off before stamping /rolling the next image- I embossed wach one separate since the Versamark can dry before rocking and rolling each leaf :-)
