Getting Ready for Fall


Greetings friends.  Somehow summer passed in the blink of an eye and September arrived.  Have you started thinking about a new season of cardmaking?  In the new Holiday 2019 release, there are new dies as well as stamps to help inspire you.

For this first card, the Lovely Oak stencil was placed onto white cardstock before sponging the open areas with Fall colors of Distress Oxide ink.  Before removing the stencil, the leaves were splattered with some watered-down brown paint.  Finally, a sentiment was added inside one of the dies from the Stylish Frame Trio set.  We think you are really going to like this new trio of frames to help highlight your sentiments.


Alcohol ink backgrounds are really popular right now.  Why not add some fall colors of alcohol ink to some Yupo paper and let the colors blend together as a backdrop for the Winter Tree frame?  Cutting out the frame using gold metallic paper really makes the die "pop."


One of the new stamp sets has a lovely branch of leaves for coloring.  You can either stamp the image with waterproof ink before watercoloring or emboss your ink so that it is a bit easier for the paint to stay within the lines.


Another example of stamping and watercoloring, but this time with the freedom of painting outside the lines.


Hopefully you have been inspired to break out some fall colors to help greet this new crafting season!
