Sentiment Staples: Thanksgiving + Frame It Out: Many Blessings

Welcome to Day 4! Who is loving the new products so far? Didn’t the Product Designers knock it out of the park? (As per usual… but I’m biased lol). Let’s keep the momentum going!

I have one card for you today showcasing the beautiful new set, Frame It Out: Many Blessings. I dry embossed the die from this set directly onto my card base and heat embossed over top using white embossing powder. The “blessings” sentiment is created using black embossing powder and the sweet mini sentiment is from Sentiment Staples: Thanksgiving.

I love how nice and simple this card turned out.

Tomorrow is Day 5 and you won’t want to miss it!!

Neat & Tangled // September Release

Welcome back to the Neat & Tangled September Release!!

by Stephanie Gold for Neat & Tangled Autumn Leaf

I chose to keep things simple for this card and really show off the beauty in this Autumn Leaf die.

After die cutting the leaf from my card front, I took it separately and painted it with about 4 different colors of ink. Then I adhered it right back into place, leaving the edges turned up for dimension. I truly love how it turned out.

I used a rock n’ roll technique with multiple ink colors to create the fall leaf-changing-color effect. Different ink brands blended differently and I actually like the diversity in how it turned out! Made it interesting!!

I KNEW I wanted to use this good ole Leaf Cover Up Die when I saw these gorgeous Pumpkin Stamps. The coordinating Pumpkin/Grateful Dies are so perfect and make the whole project just that much better.

Fall Trio Card Set

image

Hi there! I hope everyone is having a great week! It’s finally starting to cool off around here (high 70s & 80s…) and it’s reminding me that fall should be here soon. I started to make some fall cards (these are great for Thanksgiving as well) and instead of doing multiple cards the same I decided to switch it up a bit. Today I have 3 cards to show you that are the exact same theme. These were really fun to put together and end up looking like a perfect set. Let’s dive in! >>

image

This card is all stamping. I stamped my leaves onto the kraft card base knowing my focal point would be in the center of them. I then stamped and cut out the sentiment on a separate piece of kraft cardstock and attached it to the card base with dimensional adhesive. And… done! I love this card. Here’s the next one: >>

I decided to go with a horizontal layout for this card. I stamped the leaves on the bottom edge of the card base first, then stamped and cut out the sentiment on a separate kraft cardstock (like the first card). This time, I wrapped the card with natural hemp twine before attaching the sentiment with dimensional adhesive. I used some glossy accents as additional adhesive around the twine to ensure it would stay in place. (Note: I let my glossy accents set for 24 hours before using the card to make sure it is completely dry.) And for the final card… >>

image

image

For the last card I went back to the vertical card base but used the stamping on the bottom like the horizontal card. First, trimmed the bottom of the card base and stamped the leaves along the edge. I adhered the piece of patterned paper underneath the leaves and wrapped hemp twine in the middle. I stamped and cut out the sentiment again on the matching kraft cardstock and attached it to the card with dimensional adhesive and glossy accents (remember to let it dry completely). And that’s it! This last card is entered in a challenge at Papercraft Star!

Now you have 3 matching cards perfect for fall or Thanksgiving each with it’s own little twist. You could even bag these together and give them as a gift card set! I hope you like them! Have a wonderful week 🙂
