Teresa here today with a sweet fall card using an adorable stamp set from Stampendous and some glorious fall paper by Scrapping for Less.
I just arrived home around 11:30 PM this past Tuesday evening from an unexpected week long trip to Oregon to help with my two little grandsons while my daughter’s partner was out of town. (I can’t help but insert some cuteness!) Well a 2.5 and 1.5 yr old are energy laden enough to exhaust this “Amma” (grandma). Top that off with traveling from the West coast to the East…whew what a trip.
So, because of all that I needed a quick but adorable card for today’s post. So glad this “Sheetload of Cards” from Call Me Crafty Al’s YouTube channel was sitting on my desk. (I will be doing a post (or video) soon with this month’s sheet load.) While looking through my stamp stash I just knew I had to use this Stampendous set before it was too late to use it.
Hello there crafty friends! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with more fabulous inspiration using the September 2019 Flavor of the Month Card Kit called Fall is Coming!! I’m so excited to share the cards that I created! I had so much fun with this card kit! Once I started creating, I just couldn’t stop!! Lol! I have 8 cards to share with you all today! I’m going to warn you now, this post is a tad bit long, but I hope you’ll stick around and check out all my cards! Let’s get to it!
If you’ve followed my card making journey you’ll know that I adore making Halloween cards, so it’s no surprise I made a couple extras with the fabulous Frightful Cuties Collection!!! Love it!! I almost used up all the gorgeous papers in the kit… too cute!
My first card is from Collection Two: Cozy Fall. This collection is so beautiful! The papers are absolutely stunning! If I get a chance, I do have plans to make another card or two with this collection… but for today’s card, I kept the design kind of simple. I instantly fell in love with the gorgeous rose papers… the colors are amazing so I HAD to use it for my card and I also wanted to use the mug… well, because I love my coffee!! I used the following Copic markers to color the mug and flowers:
Mug ~ R000, R20, R39, R85
Flowers/leaves ~ YG0000, YG01, YG03, YR15, YR21
I fussy cut the mug and went around the edges with my Memento tuxedo black marker to clean it up a bit. I then set it aside and started die cutting the Autumn Blessings die from the Banana Split subscription. I die cut it three times and then adhered the die cuts together. A little tip for this intricate die… it’s not one piece, it cuts into four separate sections. I used Press n’ Seal wrap to hold my die cut pieces in place. I then added the liquid glue and placed the die cut layers on each other. It was a little time consuming but so worth it!! I love this fabulous font of this sentiment! It’s perfect paired up with these gorgeous papers! To finish off the card, I adhered the fussy cut mug just above the sentiment and added a few enamel dots included in the Banana Split subscription.
My second card is from Collection Three: Fall Foliage. Another fabulous set of papers in this collection and they honestly made this card super quick!! I cut the gorgeous flourish paper at 4-1/4 x 4-1/2″ and popped it up on a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ piece of the yellow paper. I adhered those to a white card base and set them aside. I stamped the beautiful sunflower from the Thankful Floral stamp set by Trinity Stamps… such a gorgeous flower! I colored it in with the following Copic markers:
Flower ~ Y11, YR14, YR15, YR21, YR24, E25, E27
Leaves ~ YG01, YG03, YG63
I stamped the Thankful sentiment on a scrap of white card stock and trimmed it into a strip. I adhered it to the card and then adhered the sunflower using liquid glue on the top portion and some foam tape on the bottom since that flourish paper was popped up. To finish off the card, I added a few of the rich yellow enamel dots to the card and one sweet ladybug! Love it!!
My third card is from Collection Four: Woodland Critters. For this card, I used one of the fun sketches from the September 2019 FOTM Sketch Sheet. I cut all my pretty papers and adhered them to the Chocolate Brown card base. I die cut a medium sized circle of white card stock and blended a little Tumbled Glass and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide inks for my background. I popped up the circle die cut on the card using foam tape. I then set that aside and stamped the moose and snail images on a piece of white card stock. I colored those in with the following Copic markers:
Moose ~ E21, E23, E25, E27, W00, W2, W4, W5, N4
Snail ~ YG0000, YG01, YG03, YR15, YR21, YR24
I fussy cut these adorable Woodland Critters and adhered them to the little scene I created. I originally planned to make two cards with these critters but when I saw them together I just knew they would be the best of friends so I kept them together and stamped the Friends Forever sentiment on a scrap of white card stock. I trimmed it down to a banner and adhered it to the card using liquid glue and foam tape. To finish off this card, I wrapped the twine around the card and tied a bow.
My next five cards are from Collection One: Frightful Cuties. Now, this collection is absolutely my favorite of the whole kit… that’s kind of why I left it for last and also didn’t share the collections in order. The papers in this collection are too cute and the colors are awesome for Halloween! Love them! My first card features the adorable Scaredy Cat stamp by Sunny Studio Stamps that’s included in Collection One. I stamped the little kitty in the pumpkin along with the moon and stars using my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. I knew I was going to die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die so I laid that on the white card stock to help guide me in positioning the stamps. I then colored in the images, as well as the background, with the following Copic markers:
Kitty ~ N0, N1, N2, N3, N5, R000, R20
Pumpkin ~ YR15, YR21, YR68, N0, N3, N5
Moon/Stars ~ Y06, Y11, Y35
Sky ~ BV000, BV00, BV20, BV23, BV25
Grass ~ YG03, YG17, YG23, YG67
Once I was done coloring, I die cut the panel and stamped the sentiment with VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossed it with a fine white embossing powder. I adhered all of my layers to a Black Licorice card front measuring 5-1/2 x 4-1/4″ and then adhered that to a white card base from my stash. I punched out a piece of the spider web paper using a 1-1/2″ circle punch. I die cut the banner from the purple spider web paper. I adhered those two pieces together and then popped them up on the card using foam tape. To finish off this card, I added the fun stickers to the circle and one near the moon. So cute!
The next four cards were so quick and easy to make!! I used the adorable Kiddie Ephemera by Simple Stories that are included in Collection One… these little kids are just TOO cute!! I blended some Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink on a Stitched Arch STAX die cut piece cut from white card stock and adhered this adorable kid directly on it. I popped up the die cut on the card using foam tape. I added a few of the fun green enamel dots to finish up this card.
I used more of the fabulous papers from the kit with this little vampire!! I added foam tape to the little vampire, as well as the sentiment, and popped those up on the card.
I used more of those fabulous stickers on this card… it was absolutely perfect with this little witch. I blended a bit of Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink on the white die cut circle to make it look like she’s conjuring up some Halloween magic fun!! I then popped her up on the card to give her some dimension. Such a great way to add interest to a card!
My last card just might be my favorite! I had fun creating a little background with some purple skies and grey/black road… just like Halloween night! Or close to it anyway! I used a cloud stencil along with Wilted Violet, Hickory Smoke, and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks to create my background. I set that aside and adhered some more pretty papers to a Black Licorice card front measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ that I adhered to a white card base from my stash. I then die cut my background piece with a small stitched rectangle die and mat it with some Black Licorice card stock. By the way, I was actually out of Black Licorice card stock so that mat piece is actually from the card front piece that’s adhered to the card base… a neat little trick I sometimes use when my card stock becomes limited in supply. The ‘stolen’ piece of card stock is hidden by a layer of patterned papers so no one knows… well, unless you tell them! Lol! Back to the card… I adhered the background panel to the card and then popped up the little Trick or Treater with some foam squares. I then stamped the sentiment from the Scaredy Cat stamp set, trimmed it and mat it on literally my last little scrap of Black Licorice card stock… I definitely like the black card stock for Halloween cards this year!
Here’s a little look at all the Halloween cards together! So much fun!! I love this kit so much… there are still a few kits remaining!!
I loved this stamp set in this collection from Sunny Studio called “Scaredy Cat”. I stamped the image with Gina K Amalgam Black Ink and colored with Copic markers. I then used a mini stitched scallop circle die to cut the image and used Dusty Concord distress ink to add a little color to the edges. I absolutely LOVE the sentiment’s font! I stamped that onto white card stock and die cut with a stitched fishtail banner die. I also added the Dusty Concord distress ink around the edges. I finished the card with the green enamel dots found in my kit!
Card 2, Collection 2 – Cozy Fall
The sweater image found in the stamp set “Sweater Weather” by Paper Sweeties is a solid image. I wanted to add a little design to these sweaters. So, I stamped out the image using four different colors; then used versamark ink to stamp the 3 small images and the word “cozy” from the stamp set. I used white embossing powder so they would really stand out. I fussy cut them images and put them aside. I chose 3 different pattern papers and cut them with a stitched rectangle die and for the 2 smaller patterns I used a stitched, scallop border die to add a little interest. Once I layered all the pattern paper, I added the sweaters using foam adhesive for 2 of the images. I stamped the sentiment with black ink then die cut it with a stitched, fishtail banner die and added Crushed Olive distress ink. It was also added to my card using foam adhesive.
Card 3, Collection 3 – Fall Foliage
How beautiful is this “Thankful Floral” stamp by Trinity Stamps?! This collection had some beautiful pattern paper to go with it as well. I stamped the image using Gina K Black Amalgam Ink and used the Arteza Real Brush pens to color. Once I was finished coloring it, I added “Scattered Straw” distress ink to the edges. I the cut down of pattern paper I thought went best with a stitched rectangle die and added my focal piece to the card using foam adhesive.
Card 4, Collection 4 – Woodland Critters
There is too much cute in this collection! The stamp set from Scrapping for Less called “Woodland Friends” features a moose image, but I loved this little cut apart found in the pattern paper. This card was fairly easy! I cut various pattern papers to create my main panel, matted the moose cut out on another piece of pattern paper then added it with some foam adhesive. I finished this card with 3 enamel dots from the collection – using the largest to smallest.
Thank You all so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed and get inspired!
I’m sure that you have heard of the delays in the Design Team receiving the kits this month and mine was even more delayed because my family was on our annual Fall vacation. I got home late on Wednesday and was hoping to play with the card kit but there was yet another delay… a mix up with the post office and our held mail was not delivered. I finally received it yesterday and was able to get a couple cards made so let’s have a look, shall we?!
Knowing that my time was limited to get my DT post up and ready for the morning, I decided to focus on the wonderful Color In Cut A-parts by Photo Play that are included in Collection Four. I colored in the first Cut A-part using the following Copic markers ~ Y11, Y15, Y17, Y35, YR15, YR21, YR68, R14, R29, R59. I just adore this image!!
I trimmed down the Cut A-part and set it aside. I cut my layers for the card and adhered them to the Chocolate Brown card front measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″. I ran a piece of Tangy Orange card stock through my Big Shot with the Eyelet Elegance Rectangle die by Gina Marie Designs. I adhered the Cut A-part panel to the orange die cut piece and popped up the entire panel on the card with foam tape. To finish off the card I added a few of the gorgeous enamel dots also from Gina Marie Designs that are included in Collection Four.
Since I had the Cut A-parts on my desk and the Copic Markers, I decided to make another card with a similar design. I love how fast I was able to make these cards using these wonderful Cut A-parts!! I hope that you’ve enjoyed my cards and that I’ve inspired you to use these Cut A-parts from your kit.
Be on the lookout for more inspiration using the fabulous September 2019 Fall is Coming card kit!! I will have a couple more cards to share next week on my blog… Tawny Owl Paperie and also on my Instagram <— click on the links and be sure to follow me for more inspiration!!
Hello there crafty friends! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with another look at the fabulous Tumbleblossom Cluster stamp set by Stamping Bella… this stamp is absolutely stunning and such a dream to color! I had so much fun watercoloring it last week that I just had to color it up with my copic markers.
It’s been a very long time since I’ve attempted an Eclipse card and I thought it would be so fun to use the florals in this stamp as my eclipse background. Can you see the “Thanks” in the midst of the florals? It’s not super easy to see in this first picture but the closeup pictures that follow you can see it more and more.
I used the following Copic markers to color these beautiful flowers in Autumn hues ~ Y000, Y06, Y17, YR000, YR15, YR27, YR68, BG70, BG72, BG75, YG11, YG95, YG97, R000, R00, R11, R14, R20, R56, R89. I added touches of white in the centers of some of the flowers with a white gel pen.
I die cut the thanks from the center of the flowers and then again three more times from scraps of kraft card stock. I then stamped the “+ giving” from the Fall Breeze stamp set by Photo Play, masking the “thanks” portion of the sentiment, onto a scrap piece of black card stock with VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossed a fine white embossing powder. I trimmed it down and set it aside.
I die cut the flowers with the scallop peekaboo rectangle and then die cut a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ piece of black card stock. I adhered the two pieces onto a thin piece of white card stock and adhered the “thanks” die cut pieces. I then popped up the “+ giving” sentiment with foam squares. To finish off the card, I added several Chalk White Nuvo Stone Drops.
Here’s one more look at the card. I sure hope that you like my second Autumn take on this lovely cluster stamp. I truly enjoyed making it and I hope I’ve inspired you to give the Eclipse technique a try. Such a fun technique!!
Hello Everyone! Christine with Pattercrafts with a Spooktacular Halloween card. Today’s card has a variety of dimension and techniques.
To start the card, I am making the background. I grabbed my star stencil and some distress ink. (I made one panel using Mustard Seed – as seen in the photo but ended up doing another panel using Squeezed Lemonade, which is in the final card) I applied the distress ink, wiped down the stencil carefully then applied some versamark. I pulled up the stencil, added clear embossing powder and then heat set the stars.
After the embossing powder was set and cooled I then used Concord Grape, Chipped Sapphire and black soot distress ink to create my sky.
While that dried, I die cut my ground and added some Peeled Paint distress ink to darken my card stock. I then then stamped the sentiment “Happy Halloween” and use more clear embossing powder.
These images are darling and I really didn’t want to use them once they were all colored!! I stamped them with Gina K Black Amalgam Ink and colored them with Copic Markers.
Once all the different elements of this card were ready, it was time to assemble the card.
I started by adding the 1st layer of “grass”/”ground” directly onto the sky piece. I then put 3 Pumpkin Clips from Doodlebug on the 2nd layer of “grass”/”ground”; to keep the clips from moving I used a piece of tape on the back. Between the Pumpkin Clips, I put 2 pumpkins from the Lawn Fawn Costume Party stamp set. I then added a few candy pieces (also from the stamp set). I added this piece to the panel with foam adhesive.
Now to the characters (that I wanted to hoard – hehe) I added them with liquid glue and made sure to add a few Halloween musts! Of course, one would need a plastic pumpkin to collect candy, the witch needs her broom and our little dinosaur is enjoying a piece of fun size candy!
On the inside I added the sentiment “Trick or Treat” from the stamp set, the other 2 characters and a couple more pieces of candy.
Thank You all so much for joining me today! I hope you enjoy and get inspired!
The rubber stamp was stamped with Gina K Black Amalgam Ink and the colored with Copic Markers. Since this was more of a scene stamp, I knew I wasn’t going to be cutting the image out (of course I could have, but I really like the flying leaves). I used modified rectangle die to cut my “scene” and used a slightly larger one to cut the solid paper (found in the Fall Break paper pad) to make a mat.
I had SUCH a hard time deciding which pattern paper to use. My focal point takes up a large portion of the front so I knew I wanted a small pattern. I also wanted pumpkins or leaves. It seems so silly to spend so much time finding the right piece of pattern paper but I ended up taking my stitched rectangle die to each piece of pattern paper – put the scene piece in the die to a REALLY good idea of what the card will look like. It came down to 2 patterns that I liked so I decided to use both!
I used the super small print for the front panel and the leaves for the inside of the card. I decided there wasn’t much room left on the front for the sentiment so I would need to stamped on the inside if the card. I took a scrap of white card stock and die cut a stitched, scalloped circle and stamped the sentiment in the center of the circle. I finished the front with a little shimmer using a clear glitter brush.
What do you think? Do you like the pattern paper on the inside as well?
Thank You all so much for joining me today. I hope you enjoy and get inspired.
