I am having so much fun creating fall cards this month! I have created another quick and
easy fall card (using the same stamps and paper as my fall card last week) to share with you today.
Lately, when I create a card, I am making an effort to stamp/color several
of the main images so I can create more than one card with that stamp set.
This simple card uses the leaf image from the Stamp Simply Clear Stamps-
Give Thanks Bundle along with a cut-a-part from the new Carta Bella Welcome Autumn 6x6 paper pad (all from Stamp Simply )!
As many of you who follow my blog know, I am slowly making a card for
each of the over 850+ Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenges and was able to incorporate
Sketch into the layout (this sketch was from 2009)- so thrilled that their
sketch challenges do not expire, lol!
I am also playing along with the Simon Says
Monday “Dry Embossing” Challenge, Simon
Says Wednesday “Add A Sentiment” Challenge and the Word Art Wednesday #505-#506 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the Stamp Simply blog or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful
inspiration from all!
Also, don’t forget- Stamp Simply also has a special August promotion!
To create this card:
Ink the oak leaf image from the Give Thanks Bundle
using Versafine Onyx Black ink, stamp onto white cardstock and heat set the ink with a heat tool.
Color the image with watercolor pencils and once
satisfied with the water color, die cut the leaf with the matching die from the Give Thanks Bundle.
cut two additional leaf shapes from white cardstock, adhere together and add
the colored leaf die cut on top (this gives the die-cut additional strength,
almost like a chipboard piece).
Once layered, use a clear glitter marker to
add shimmer to the leaf image and set aside to dry thoroughly.
Use the Darice
Wire Fence embossing folder to emboss a piece of white cardstock, trim to approx.
4” x 5 ¼” and mount onto a piece of black cardstock.
Mount the panel onto a white card base.
Trim the piece of Carta Bella Welcome Autumn 6x6 Paper for the lower left hand panel, mount onto black cardstock
and trim close to the edge. Mount
directly onto the card front.
Trim the cut-a-part “There is always Something to
be Grateful For” from the Carta Bella Welcome Autumn 6x6 Paper , mount onto black cardstock (trimming close to
the edge) and adhere directly onto the card front.
To finish off the card, mount the colored die cut
leaf image to the card front using dimensional foam.
