Custom Blended Fall Color Card

When you can’t decide what colors to use on your fall card… use them all! The technique is called emboss resist and it can be used so many ways for so many great looks.

In this card I used the leaf filled Pumpkin from the Pretty Pumpkin Stamp set. Heat embossed the image with white then blended Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler and Rich Razzleberry.

Blot the ink of the embossed area with a paper towel and adhere your sentiment.

I really love the fluid look of the colors! Want more depth? Try using Fluid 100 our water color paper and swirling the colors. Come back a second time after it has dried, sprinkle water then lift with a paper towel to create water marks.

Fall, Handmade Cards

Gather Together to Create Great Memories

Last weekend was our last trip out to camp on our land in PA. Or as I like to call it the Fall Gathering.

Luna gathered her strength for the weekend’s long hours outside!
Marc gathered up some child like enthusiam!
Sidney will need to gather up some money for repairs!
I gathered up some inspiration with all the fall colors!

I couldn’t help but notice that the leaves were more colorful in PA then Ohio. Maybe it is the difference in the tree types? Either way this card screams fall colors!

The base is Cinnamon Cider and the other colors are Mossy Meadow, Rich Razzle Berry and Pumpkin Pie.

The stamp set is Pretty Pumpkins.

The Designer Series Paper is Beauty of the Earth.

HAVING A BLOODY GOOD TIME!

Halloween is my favorite holiday, but I never make cards for it! It is just not a card type of holiday, on rare occasions some treat bags may happen but really even though I love all the extra scary, spooky stuff cards just don’t happen.

This year I am bringing back our Halloween neighborhood party (it’s been at least a decade- which is scary enough). That made an excellent excuse to create a card… my only problem was, I didn’t have any halloween stamps!

Improvision to the rescue… here’s how I made the card.

  • Basic Black base 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
  • Basic White or Very Vanilla layer (Very Vanilla looked better, so I mailed all those out-the photo is Basic White) 4 x 5 1/4
  • Apply Crumb Cake ink with a Blending Brush to make the image look like older paper
  • Print the details on the cardstock using your computer/printer, as a demonstrator we get lists of the hex codes to match Stampin’ Up! colors, in this case the print is Early Espresso and Real Red.
  • Stamp tree limbs in Basic Black ink- these are all retired stamps
  • Stamp blood splatter in Real Read- This was the newly retired sale-a-bration stamp Textures & Frames

This card is also tagged in the fall and winter categories because the theme would be easy to convert and I know we are all thinking about how to manage family gatherings to see our loved ones in a safe way. Just use paper and ink in a more fall browns/oranges/red or winter whites/light & dark blues. Change out the blood splatter for leaves or snowflakes unless you want to really confuse your guests!
