Hello, my friends!
I hope everybody is well can you believe today’s the first day of fall happy fall y’all!
Today’s card was inspired by the new trendy fall colors the teal, blues, whites and greens that are a little brighter. I use the color combo of Pretty Peacock and Granny Apple Green as well as the sponge brayer technique to create a fun background. I also use the beautiful Come to Gather Designer Series Paper found in the Come to Gather Suite and the Harvest Hello Bundle!
The card base is Crumb Cake card stock measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″. Designer series paper Come to Gather measuring 1 1/4″ x 3 7/8″. Scrap piece of Pretty Peacock card stock. Whisper White card stock measuring 5 1/4″ x 4″, 1 3/8″ x 4″ as well as a few scrap pieces large enough to cut out the Larges of the stitched square from the Stitch Shape Dies. Granny Apple Green card stock large enough to cut out the third largest square from the Stitched Shaped Dies.
I first created the background using the sponge prayers on your piece of Whisper White card stock. Then using white embossing powder and Versamark ink stamp your Pumpkin image onto your Pretty Peacock scrap piece of paper heat set using your heat tool. Stamp your sentiment “you make me smile” from the Harvest Hello stamp set using Versamark Ink in the top right-hand corner of your background. Then using Crumb Cake ink I stamped the stem using Granny Apple Green ink I stamped the leaf punch them out using your Apple Builder Punch as well as your pumpkin. Are use the Light Brown and White watercolor pencils the white watercolor pencil I colored in the pumpkin image that had been embossed then I lightly colored over the leaf and stem using the brown watercolor pencil.
Using the largest square from the Stitched Shaped Dies to cut out your piece of Whisper White card stock. Now taking the third largest square from the stitched shape dies to cut out your Granny Apple Green card stock. Cut an additional piece of whisper white measuring 1 3/8″ x 4″. Glue your designer series paper onto this piece of Whisper White card stock.
Call your Granny Apple Green square onto your Whisper White square. I then scrunched up and broke down the paper fibers in the pumpkin then added dimensionals to the back and adhere to the Granny Apple Green layer. Glue your designer series paper layer to the left side of your background then center the squares in the middle of your designer series paper and glue down. Now using Whisper White bakers Twine add a few layers of twine to the left-hand side tie off with a bow.
Glue these layers onto your Crumb Cake card base. Now for some added interest add a few Rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
