I’m popping in to share some autumnal cards with you featuring some goodies from Autumn Extraordinaire Release by Penny Black!
I showcased some of the items from Autumn Extraordinaire Release on a previous post. Today I’m using other stamps and some dies for my cards.
There are three to share with you today.
The first one is showcasing one of the lovely and whimsical images from Hugs & Cuddles set (30-738) and the beautiful die cut leaves of Fall Foliage die set (51-655)
I started off by stamping the cute squirrel from Hugs & Cuddles set (30-738) on a watercolor paper in a black pigment ink. I colored the image using Karin brush markers and some Zig brush pens. I cut it using the coordinating die (51-684) and set it aside.
Before die cutting the leaves I colored a watercolor paper panel in various Fall colors using Gansai Tambi watercolor and cut the leaves from it. I didn’t cut the veins, instead I dry embossed the veins on the leaves.
The background panel was also colored using Gansai Tambi watercolor in the same colors I used for the leaves. After the panel was dry I cut it using a Swirly Stitches die (51-502). I stamped the sentiment from Hugs & Cuddles set (30-738) on the background panel in a black pigment ink and clear heat embossed it. I splattered gold watercolor on the background and on the leaves and let them dry.
I foam mounted the background panel on a creme cardbase, added the leaves on it as shown in the picture using some foam tape and lastly made the squirrel take a nap on the cozy leafy bed. Some white accents on the squirrel and sparkly Stickles on the flowers were my finishing touch.
The second card is featuring Harvest Wishes stamp set (30-728) along with the Fall Foliage die set (51-655) again.
I started off by stamping the cute wreath from the Harvest Wishes stamp set (30-728) in Antique Linen DI for no line coloring. I colored the wreath using Karin brush markers. I cut it using the coordinating die (51-681) and set it aside.
For the background I used a technique which my super talented crafty friend Yoonsun from Rejoicing craft oft uses. I have no idea how it is called though 🙂 . Anyhow you adhere white die cut pieces on a white panel and ink blend in the colors you love. It creates a fantastic background with awesome texture!
I die cut several leaves and veins from some white cardstock and glued them on a white panel which was cut using a Leaf Stitched Frames die (51-552). I then ink blended on the panel in the same Fall colors I used for the wreath. I splattered white opaque ink on the panel and let it dry.
I foam mounted the background panel on a white cardbase and added the wreath on it using some foam tape. The sentiment from the Harvest Wishes stamp set (30-728) was gold heat embossed on a piece of vellum which I cut into a circle. I matted it with a white circle piece and added it to the card.
The last card for today is made with the cute mini clear stamp set, You’re Perfect (30-726).
I stamped the image in Antique Linen DI on a Bristol smooth paper and colored it using Karin brush markers. After done with coloring I ink blended the bottom part in some brown and green DIs and added subtle clouds in the sky on the top of the panel using a DIY stencil and Salty Ocean DI. I cut the panel with a Leaf Stitched Frames die (51-552) and stamped the sentiment in black ink on it.
I felt like “something is missing” when I saw the kraft cardbase. So I stamped the pumpkins of the You’re Perfect (30-726) stamp set on it in Antique Linen DI and added shades to the pumpkins using a brown colored pencil. I also ink blended some clouds with a white pigment ink. The colored panel was foam mounted on the kraft cardbase. I scattered some clear iridescent sequins and said it’s done 🙂 !
