It’s Thursday & welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. You may have come from the talented Tara Carpenter … or simply begun here. Be sure you check out all the creative posts for today’s bog hop!
The theme challenge this week was a Fall card … and this is what I did
So does this fit? :O) There were SO MANY ways I could have gone as there are some really, really great fall bundles, but honestly, I was looking for something different. And here it is. The DSP is the Happy Forest Friends 12 x 12; the leaves are from Season of Chic bundle; the front sentiment is from Charming Sentiments & die cut with the coordinating Sentiment Silhouette Dies. I used Calypso Coral , Old Olive and Mossy Meadow inks for the leaves; Calypso Coral and mossy Meadow for the sentiments; the card base is Calypso Coral; the embossed & layering panels are Mossy Meadow card stock. The embellishments are Brushed Metallic Dots. I had such fun creating this card.
- cut card base (Calypso Coral): 5 1/2 x 11. Score on long side 4, 5 3/4, 7 1/2 and 9 1/4
- cut another piece (Calypso Coral) 5 x 2 1/2 and score at 2 1/2
- cut another in Calypso Coral 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 (this becomes an inside panel for the sentiment)
- cut a Basic White 2 x 2 for the sentiment inside panel
- cut layering pieces (Mossy Meadow) 1 5/8 x 5 3/8 (cut 2)
- cut DSP 1 1/2 x 5 1/4 (cut 2)
- cut pieces to emboss (Mossy Meadow) 1 5/8 x 5 3/8, 2 3/8 x 2 3/8, 3 7/8 x 5 3/8: emboss with Stitched Greenery Die
- adhere pieces as shown in photo
Now create the leaves using the leaves in the Seasoned Chic stamp set: ink the stamp with Calypso Coral and with a sponge dauber add inks from Mossy Meadow & Old Olive. You can see in the photo I did this five times, varying the colors just a bit; by this I mean inking the stamp with Mossy Meadow or Old Olive and with a sponge dauber for each color, adding the other inks. Each was stamped on Basic White then die cut with the coordinating Chic Dies. You can see I also die cut a couple of the open leaves – gorgeous. Before adhering to the card, I decided on the sentiment for the front: Charming Sentiments stamp set and stamped in Calypso Coral ink then die cut with the Sentiment Silhouette Dies. This was adhered with liquid glue, then the leaves were attached. Three Brushed Metallic Dots were added to the front. The sentiment for the inside comes from the Apple Harvest stamp set and stamped in Mossy Meadow ink. This was die cut with the coordinating Apple Blossom Dies. (These two are part of the Perfect Partners Promotion and available during the month of September while supplies last. Each is available separately, but why would you? With 10% off when purchased as a bundle, it’s a steal!) Two more of the Brushed Metallic Dots were added near the sentiment panel. As there really isn’t much room to write, I did add a Basic White panel to the back of the card (4 x 5 1/4).
