I have most of my to-do list done for cards, so I'll be playing a bit with seasonal cards. I have so many fall stamps, dies, etc., that I've put most of them into a big bin which I pull out at this time of year. When I opened it this year I found this panel that I had stamped last year. I had inked the Leaves Background cling in distress inks, spritzed the stamp lightly with water, and then stamped it onto some watercolor paper.
So I first decided to use the panel as a frame for a fun fall sentiment.
supplies: ivory and Lipstick Red cardstock, watercolor paper, Simon's Leaves Background cling, mustard seed, spiced marmalade, and fired brick distress inks, Memory Box Pinpoint Rectangle dies, Newton's Nook Fall-ing for You clear stamp set, Altenew mini inks: Maple Yellow, Snapdragon, Marigold, and Firebrick, adhesive foam to pop frame above card base
I cut the rectangle from the panel and set it aside (see below), then used it to help me place my sentiment onto my card base, inking it in 4 different inks for an ombre look. Then I lined the frame with a smaller rectangle die in Lipstick Red, added some foam to the back, and popped it over my card base.
For my next card, I used that rectangle cut from the center of my panel, and overstamped and heat embossed the same sentiment before framing it again in Lipstick Red. And again, I used some leftovers that I found in my fall box.
supplies: ivory, Lipstick Red, and Sunshine cardstock, Simon Leaves Background, Newton's Nook Fall-ing for You sentiment, Altenew Espresso mini ink, clear embossing powder, Memory Box Pinpoint Rectangle dies, Spellbinders Hemstitch Rectangle die, Neat & Tangled (retired) Maple Thanks Leaf die
I was just going to mount my framed stamped piece onto an ivory card, but it looked too plain to me, so I cut the Hemstitch Rectangle from the front of the card, and lined it with Sunshine cardstock inside. Then I spied these Maple Leaf leftovers cut from a distress-ink sponged panel, and glued them under my framed leaf print. Much better!
Are you looking forward to the weekend? Enjoy!
