SUO106 Fall Colors- A Thankful Greeting :-)
Time for the new SU-Only Challenges SUO106 Fall Colors Challenge! We are encouraging you to create a new project using your Stampin’ Up! products with Fall Colors. I decided to use the White Christmas stamp set from the Holiday Mini to show that it can be used all year round :-)
I hope that you will visit us at SUO-Challenges to check out the rest of the Design Team projects and join in on in on the fun with your Stampin’ Up! Only creations!
I decided to incorporate the Around the World AW25 Thanks Challenge in honor of their first "birthday" as well- check this link out to see their fabulous Design Team and projects :-)
To create this project:
Ink the Post Card background stamp using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink- remove the ink off the vertical strip in the center using a baby wipe and stamp the image onto Whisper White cardstock.
Create a mask for the horizon line and stamp the tree stamp from White Christmas using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink.
Using the larger splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge with Tangelo Twist Classic Ink, stamp over the branches to create the illusion of fall leaves and repeat the steps using Old Olive and Cajun Craze Classic Ink. Add a bit more detail using the Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write marker.
Color the grassy area using a Stampin’ Write Old Olive Marker and add a bit of Cajun Craze for the leaves on the ground and add details around the scroll areas at the top of the Post Card area. Draw a line for the horizon using the Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker.
Use an AquaPainter™ with Pool Party Classic Ink to fill in the sky area being careful around the leaves.
Use the Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker to add a few birds to the sky. Distress the panel using the Distressing Tool and use a Sponge Dauber to add Crumb Cake Classic Ink over the entire sky/image to “antique” the paper a bit.
Add the panel to a piece of Moonlight Designer Series Paper (DSP) and distress the edges using the Distressing Tool. Stamp the DSP panel using the splatter stamp with Crumb Cake Classic Ink and mount onto a piece of Pool Party cardstock.
Distress the Pool Party layer with the Distressing Tool as well and add additional distressing to all of the layers using a Sponge Dauber with Crumb Cake Classic Ink.
Mount the entire panel onto an Early Espresso card base.
Stamp the California Quail image from Walk in the Wild as well as the acorn, piece of wood and sentiment from Truly Grateful using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.
Color the acorn and wood image using Stampin’ Write Crumb Cake and Baked Brown Sugar markers. Color the quail using So Saffron, Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate and Basic Black Stampin’ Write markers.
Carefully cut out the quail, acorn and wood image and add a few highlights to the acorn and quail using the Chalk Marker.
Create a banner for the sentiment using the Hexagon Punch and stamp the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Crumb Cake Classic Ink. Use the Distressing Tool to distress the edges.
Add the banner, quail, wood and acorn to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
