Kindness Card
by Donna

Good morning everyone!  

We are offically into the month of September,  which means it's time for fall!  To celebrate the season I have put together a fun and easy autumn card. 

MB pumpkin 2016


I wanted to create a background with leaves but I didn't have any leaf stamps large enough, so instead I used the leaf stencil to create the background. I traced the leaves in a random pattern using a fine-tipped Sharpie pen.


The photo above shows how the background looks after the leaves are traced onto the card background, and the photo below shows how the background looks once the vein lines are added to the leaves.


Loosely watercolor the leaves and the background.  Stamp, watercolor and die cut the pumpkin.  Emboss the sentiment on vellumn cardstock and emboss using gold embossing powder.  Use foam adhesive to adhere the pumpkin to the vellum.  Glue the vellum piece to the card front with foam adhesive behind the pumpkin.  Glue the prepared card front to a white card base.


I hope I inspired you to use your stencils in a different way.  Thanks for stopping by today!





Beautiful card Donna. I love how you used the stencil for the background.

Lovely card and another great idea for using stencils thank you for sharing.

Wowzers...what a card full of Gorgeousness!!! Your card is just amazing and, yes, you inspired me to create more with stencils. I am awe struck by the background you created. Such gorgeous color!

Thanks so much for sharing with us!!!

Such a clever way of creaing the leaves, gorgeous card

This is brilliant. Awesome background. I love that you edged the vellum and adhered it so that it looks like it's floating. Awesome.

Adorable and very creative..Thanks..

Your leaf background is gorgeous. So gorgeous that I think a smaller frame is called for!

Wow that is beautiful, love how you did the framing and background, the pumpkin looks great against the vellum
