Good morning! We've got a beautiful fall morning here in New Jersey! Just the right inspiration needed for some fall-themed stamping. This morning, I'd like to share a couple of cards with you that I made from Sparkle N Sprinkle's new Fall Harvest set. Also, if you scroll down under the set, you will see many samples by some of the other Design Team Members.
I know I will be using this set over and over again!
The background for this first card is actually a photo of my backyard from last fall, and I printed it on to cream cardstock before running it through the Autumn Words embossing folder I then sanded it to highlight the words.
I dipped three Versamarked gold brads in three different autumnal embossing powders to bring out the yellow, red and green tones of the watercolored apples. Here are the full instructions for the card.
Still in autumn mode, I used the pumpkin image from the set for my second card:
For this background I used the edge of the watercolor crayons and applied yellow, pale orange, orange and red scribbled across watercolor paper, then I used a water color brush to blend the colors together. After die cutting the circle and dry embossing it (with brown dye ink applied to the inside of the folder), I covered the entire piece with Versamark and heat embossed with clear, to give it a shine.
The pumpkin image is colored with watercolor crayons applied with a waterbrush. Full instructions for this card can be found right here.
Hope you've enjoyed your visit today. I'll be back soon, to show you what I did with the new Christmas Set! 'Till then - Happy Fall!
