Bring on Fall

I am so ready for fall!  This is the fifth card that I have made with the Blended Seasons bundle!  I used the cut out from my previous card to create this simple fall card!  We are making it tonight at my Sweet & Simple card class!

To create this beauty:

  1. Stamp the leaves with Early Espresso ink randomly on Soft Suede cardstock.
  2. Stamp thank you on a Crumb Cake piece and run it through the Big Shot with the smallest of the Stitched Seasons label die.  (I centered the sentiment more towards the top to leave room for the embellishments)
  3. On a scrap of Very Vanilla, use the Watercolor Assortment #2 and color with Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, and Granny Apple Green.
  4. Cut out 2 leaves and use Wink of Stella to blend the watercolors.
  5. Tie a bow with 2 pieces of Linen Thread.
  6. Dimensionals were used to pop up the sentiment piece and glue dots for the leaves & Gold Glimmer paper.

Colorful Seasons-Fall

During the month of August, you can purchase this versatile Blended Seasons bundle!  The stamp set covers fall, Christmas, wedding, and floral images great for any occasion!  Plus, the Stitched Seasons Framelits are a must have for cutting out sentiments or adding that extra dimension to your project!  To sweeten this deal, Stampin’ Up! added NEW Watercolor Pencil colors too! This whole offering is great for scrapbooking too!

There are 3 different sizes of stitched labels that nestle inside one another.  The best part is that the die cuts a stitched outline on both the cut out and the negative!  This alone doubles your value creating a frame to tuck in an image or a sentiment.  That is what I wanted to showcase with my card today!

My inspiration came from a sample that Stampin’ Up! posted for this bundle.  I first off set the smallest of the label framelits and cut out a section of Crumb Cake for the card base. (and kept the cut out for another card).  Then, I stamped the leaves in a random pattern using Early Espresso ink.  Next, I used various colors from both Watercolor Pencils (assortments 1 & 2) to make fall color leaves. (Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede, Old Olive) I used a Blender Pen to blend the colors together for a more natural look.  I LOVE these watercolor pencils!  They blend so easily with blender pens or water.  Plus, they look great with out using any blending tools!

I cut out 2 Copper Foil leaves and used a bow of Copper Trim.  The sentiment was stamped with Early Espresso as well!
