Fall Foliage Fun
Hello friends! Kathy here today using the Fall Prairie Stamps and Dies to create a festive fall card. Here are the supplies you will need for this project:
- Fall Prairie Stamp Set
- Fall Prairie Coordinating Dies
- Raven Detail ink
- Penny Detail Embossing Powder
- Embossing Ink
- A6 card base (4 ½ x 6 ¼)
- White cardstock
- Fall colored patterned paper
- Solid color paper – fall
- Vellum strip
- Color medium (pencils, markers)
- 4” decorative circle die
- 3 ½” circle die
- 3” stitched circle die
- Stacked banner dies
- Brown ink
- Liquid adhesive
- Foam squares
To get started, you will need to prep a few pieces as follows:
- Cut the card background from patterned paper, 4 3/8” x 6 1/8”.
- Cut a 3” circle from the patterned paper.
- Cut a 4” decorative outer circle, or use a paper doily, from the white cardstock
- Die cut 12 small leaves from the solid-colored paper.
With a piece of white cardstock in your stamping platform place the 3” stitched circle die near the top edge and arrange several leaf and foliage stamps around the circle. Pick up the stamps with the platform lid and remove the die. Stamp the images with Raven detail ink several times, until all are sharp and clear.
Color the leaves with the medium of your choice. I prefer pencils on small images since they are easier to control than markers.
Center the die around the stamped images and run through the die cutting machine.
Using a brown ink, distress the edges of all die cut leaves, the patterned background, and the colored images.
Using the lower portion of the white cardstock you cut the circle from, cover an area large enough for the outer banner die with embossing ink and then cover with Penny embossing powder. Also apply embossing ink around the decorative circle and cover with embossing power. Apply heat to both.
If you have a few spots on the circle that aren’t quite covered, reapply the embossing ink and powder.
Die cut the large banner from the embossed strip.
Stamp your sentiment on the vellum strip and die cut with smaller banner die.
Time to assemble!! Using liquid adhesive, adhere the circle cut from the patterned pater to the decorative embossed circle. Attach the leaves around the colored circle. Layer the sentiment banner on the large, embossed banner.
Pop the colored circle with leaves with foam tape and attach to decorative circle. Attach the banner and sentiment to the left side of the circle and then adhere all to the patterned background.
Finally attach the everything to the card base and add a few decorative embellishments.
Happy Fall Y’all!
