More Colors, More Leaves

It must be pretty obvious by now that I LOVE this tree from Season of Friendship. Instead of using the leaves that come with the set, I decided to try this large leaf image from Autumn Harvest and it worked pretty well.

The card base is Chocolate chip textured card stock, layered with DSP from Autumn Vines DSP. The image layer is Whisper White, with a chipboard frame underneath. I covered the chipboard with Pumpkin Pie craft ink and then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder.

I stamped the images in Basic Brown ink and watercolored the leaves with my Aquapainter and the following ink pads: Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie, Creamy Caramel, and Kiwi Kiss.

With the cropadile, I punched a large hole in the chipboard and put in an eyelet from Hooray kit. Then I looped a piece of 5/8″ Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon through and tied it with Hemp Twine.

Season of Glitter–Birthday Card

This is another card I made using my beloved Striped Kraft card stock. Instead of a winter scene, this one features a beautiful tree for fall. I’m going to a birthday party in a couple weeks for my dad’s friend, and although this breaks 2 major rule of Male Cards, I think I’m going to give it to him anyway. Rule #1 is NO Glitter for a man card and Rule #2 is NO Bows–Just ask my husband.

The card base is Baja Breeze, layered with chocolate chip textured card stock, which I scalloped the edges using the Scallop Edge Punch. The image layer is Striped Kraft, with the tree from Season of Friendship stamped in chocolate chip ink. The leaves are stamped in Palette Glue Pad and then sprinkled with Supernova Fine Cosmo Glitter in Orange and Green.

I tied some 5/8″ Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon in a knot around the Kraft layer and attached the whole thing with dimensionals. The sentiment is from Chit Chat Rub Ons.

Love is in the air–His & Hers versions

October is our anniversary month. Next week we will celebrate 4 years of marriage. Since we had a fall wedding, I picked the stamp set Season of Friendship to make an anniversary card.

I made 2 versions–one for me (with lots of color and bling) and one for my husband (a little more plain).

The above card uses creamy caramel card stock for the base, layered with dusty durango textured card stock. As for the images, I stamped the tree in chocolate chip ink on whisper white card stock. The leaves are stamped in Dusty Durango, More Mustard, and Old Olive. After I finished stamping the leaves, I looked over and saw my Snow Buddies set on the desk and used the swirl image, stamped in creamy caramel ink, to create a fall breeze. Then, I stamped a few falling leaves in the “breeze”.

Across the bottom of the card, I looped a piece of 5/8″ Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon around the dusty durango/whisper white layer, tying the ends together with Hemp Twine.

The sentiment is my own, printed from my computer, on dusty durango textured card stock and punched out using the Scallop Oval Punch. I also stamped the outline from one of the Oval All stamps in dusty durango ink using the stampamajig to get it perfectly set. To finish off the oval, I punched 3 holes using the cropadile and used Circle Rhinestone Brads in the same colors as the leaves. That was then attached to the card base using dimensionals. Tip: I like to cut the ends of the brad tabs off by using my Craft and Rubber Scissors so they don’t stick out. Then, I put small glue dots over the backs to keep them from spinning.

This is the male version of the anniversary card! For this one, the base is mellow moss, layered with chocolate chip textured card stock and whisper white. I stamped the tree in chocolate chip ink again, and the leaves are all stamped in dusty durango. Everything else is the same except that I wrote the sentiment in chocolate chip marker and then punched it out. No brads, no bling, just the way he would like it 🙂
