AIK Blog Hop
Autumn Greetings – #1

And here are the details of the main image – that gorgeous bouquet.

  • Stamp the image from the Autumn Greetings stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a Very Vanilla panel.
  • Color using lots of Stampin Blends… For the pumpkin – Lt Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie, Lt Soft Suede (stem); for the oak/ maple leaves – Calypso Coral, Mango Melody, Call Me Clover; for the center flowers – Highland Heather combo pack and Purple Posy combo pack; for the mums – Mango Melody combo pack; for the wheat – Crumb Cake combo pack; for the eucalyptus – Lt Pool Party; for the berries – Poppy Parade combo pack; and the berry leaves – Dk Shaded Spruce.
  • Die cut with the outline die from the Autumn Essential Dies
  • Using Shimmery Crystal Effects, highlight various berries, leaves and the purple flowers. Set aside to dry till firm.

Now that the bouquet is complete – create the rest of the card front…

  • Die cut sprigs of wheat from Brushed Metallic Paper in both bronze & copper.
  • Cut a panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP – adhere to a Mint Macaron panel
  • Place the Gold Hoop near the bottom and adhere with liquid glue.
  • Adhere the copper wheat sheafs with liquid glue to the DSP but against the hoop (you may need to trim some of the length of the wheat stem).
  • Adhere the bronze wheat sheafs to the back of the large bouquet with liquid glue.
  • Cut two strips of the Copper Metallic Ribbon and adhere with Stampin Plus to the center of the Gold Hoop (on the SDSP!)
  • Cut a length of Gold ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and adhere over the two pieces of copper ribbon, centering it.
  • Put dimensionals on the back of the bouquet and place over the hoop, leaving about 1/3 showing.
  • Stamp the greeting in Tuxedo Black Memento ink (again from Autumn Greetings stamp set) and fussy cut. Separate the sentiment into two parts.
  • Put dimesnionals on the backs and adhere to the card front as shown.
  • Adhere this Mint Macaron panel to the Thick Very Vanilla card front. VOILA! Gorgeousness!

For the inside…

Autumn Greetings, inside – #2
  • Adhere a Mint Macaron panel to the card inside with liquid glue.
  • With a panel of Very Vanilla card stock, run it through the die cutting machine with the leaf die from the Autumn Essential Dies. Don’t you love this edge? I certainly do!!!
  • Stamp the pumpkin from the Autumn Greetings stasmp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and color with Stampin Blends: Pumpkin Pie, Dk Cajun Craze, Call Me Clover and Mango Melody. I also used the color lifter on the pumpkin n- not sure if you can see that.
  • Adhere the Very Vanilla panel to the Mint Macaron and the card is complete!

For the envelope… I simply cut a strip of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP and adhered it to the envelope flap and it was all done. This was such FUN to do – but then I lover coloring. There is something peaceful about it.
