Get ready for Fall!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which was my first creation for the Stamp It Groups Fall Theme Blog Hop (you can get to the blog hop here. I decided to create another card so I would have a couple of choices and ended up using that card. That doesn’t mean I can’t share with you, right?? This card features the Colorful Seasons stamp set and the coordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies, which is an awesome all season set to have.

To create this card, start with Mossy Meadow cardstock for the card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”

The base layer is Cajun Craze cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and I used the Burlap background stamp, heat embossing in Copper Embossing Powder:

For the leaves, I used the smaller leaf thinlit to cut out in Mango Melody, Cajun Craze, and Mossy Meadow cardstock. I used the detailed leaf stamp on Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow cardstock in Versamark ink, heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder, and then cut out with the bigger leaf thinlit. For the other tricolored leaves, I used sponge daubers with Mango Melody, Cajun Craze, and Mossy Meadow inks on Very Vanilla cardstock. I cut out 5 small leaves, stamped the detailed leaf stamp in Mossy Meadow ink twice, and then cut out with the bigger leaf thinlit:

The branch is cut out of Early Espresso cardstock with the branch thinlit and then I stamped FALL on four of the leaves in Mossy Meadow ink from the Make A Difference stamp set:

The branch is adhered across the top (of the longer side) and the leaves are positioned across the branch, all adhered with the Fine Tip Glue Pen:

I then adhered the 4 larger leaves across the bottom of the base layer, which I do recommend using a liquid glue to help adhere to the embossed parts of the cardstock:

Then the 4 remaining small leaves are adhered with dimensionals:

The base layer is then adhered to the card base with dimensionals:

The inside is a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and I used the small leaf stamp in Mango Melody, Cajun Craze, and Mossy Meadow inks along the side:

Another quick and easy for fall card! You could easily turn this into a Thanksgiving card by not stamping the small leaves with the FALL letters and use your favorite sentiment!

Product List

Hello Friend!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is featuring products from the Tutti-Frutti Suite! Sadly, all these products are on the retirement list, however, as I am writing this they are all still currently available! If you are looking for fun, bright, and peppy products, then I highly suggest you check them out by heading to my online store!

When I sat down to create this card, I chose this particular piece from the Tutti-Frutti 6” x 6” DSP Paper Stack because it was a 3” x 6” scrap piece! Yesterday I discussed how to cut and utilized every piece from a piece of 6” x 6” DSP and I was determined to use this piece today! So, another way to cut at 6” x 6” piece of DSP is to cut it in half so you have two 3” x 6” pieces and then cut 2” off that piece, so you will end up with two pieces cut at 3” x 4” and two pieces cut at 3” x 2”:

The card base is Thick Whisper White cardstock cut at 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5 ½”:

The base layer is Lemon Lime Twist cardstock cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

The Burlap Background stamp is used in Lemon Lime Twist ink to stamp on the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock at an angle:

Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 2 ¾” x 1 ¾”, from the Fruit Basket stamp set, stamp the wire basket image in Sahara Sand ink, the strawberry image in Real Red ink, and the strawberry leaves image in Lemon Lime Twist ink. On a ½” piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the hello and friend stamps in Night of Navy ink and then punch the end with the Banner Triple Punch:

To put this card together, adhere the 3” x 4” piece of DSP to the base layer, adhere the Whisper White cardstock stamped piece to the 2” x 3” piece of DSP, and then adhere this to card base:

The front sentiment is adhered with dimensionals and I added some Tutti-Frutti Adhesive-Backed Sequins in Lemon Lime Twist:

fullsizeoutput_1a9c

This is then adhered to the card base:

The inside sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy ink, with the strawberry in Real Red ink and the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist ink:

This is such a cute and bright card to send birthday wishes with! So, if you cut a piece of 6” x 6” DSP in half (3” x 6”) and then cut 2” off those two pieces, you will be able to make two cards out of one 6” x 6” sheet! Be sure to join me tomorrow for another way to use up that DSP Paper Stack!

I hope today’s card inspires you to get creative! Please contact me if you have any questions about the products used on this or any other project. I hope you enjoyed today’s blog and thanks for stopping by!
