Thinking of You- A Masculine Autumn Card
The SUO Challenges SUO81 Challenge is to “Make Something Masculine” so I decided to pull out one of my favorite new stamp sets, Walk in the Wild and incorporated a few other challenges- colors from the FabFri28 Challenge and “fussy-cutting/tearing” from The Friday Mash-UpFM130 Challenge. .
Using Sponge Daubers with Old Olive, Tangerine Tango and Rich Raspberry Classic Ink to ink up the bold leaf stamp from Gently Falling and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.
Carefully cut out each leaf and place each leaf onto a piece of scrap paper to sponge additional ink as needed onto the leaf. Use the Chalk Marker to create the veins and gently roll the edge of the leaves to give a realistic appearance.
Using Whisper White Craft Ink, repeatedly stamp the script stamp from Notable Notions along with Off the Grid and Gorgeous Grunge onto Basic Black cardstock.
Add the layer of Season of Style Washi Tape along with the torn Whisper White paper (embossed with the Big Shot™ and Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder). Mount this entire panel onto Whisper White cardstock and again onto a Basic Black card base.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Chalk Talk Framelits™ to cut a frame from Basic Black and Whisper White. De-static the Basic Black tag with the Embossing Buddy® and stamp the Off the Grid background stamp using Versamark®ink, apply Stampin’ Write White Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Gun.
Do the same steps as above with the sentiment from Wetlands and once cooled, add the Whisper White embossed/torn layer (this was from my scrap bag and already had the curve from a punched out area on another card).
Add the leaves to the background with Mini Glue Dots, add the Chalk Talk frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the additional leaves.
Stamp the pheasant from Walk in the Wild using Early Espresso Classic Ink and color using the AquaPainter™ with ink from the Tangerine Tango, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberru Classic ink pads as well as the Stampin’ Write markers in the same colors.
Carefully “fussy-cut” the pheasant and grass image and add to the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals® . Adhere three Tangerine Tango Candy Dots to finish off the card.
