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.
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.
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 🙂 !
