Hi friends! I have two cards to share with you today. I picked autumn colors for my palette, and mixed a couple The Greetery products together.
I love making my own backgrounds, and the single leaves from Autumn Sketches stamp set were perfect for this project. I started first with a sentiment. I chose the beautiful sentiment from All Blessing Flow stamp set. I stamped the sentiment in the middle of a panel, and used it as a guide on where to position my leaves. I used my MISTI so I could stamp a few panels.
I stamped the leaves with Distress Oxide inks, using finger daubers to add the ink. I used 4 different color combinations: Crushed Olive/Forest Moss, Scattered Straw/Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick/Aged Mahogany, and Wild Honey/Rusty Hinge. The outlines were stamped with Concord & 9th Wheat ink.
I blended ink around the edges, and splattered a bit of paint to finish the panels. Once dry, I die-cut them with Crimped Frame Die. I attached them to card bases with foam adhesive, then got the sentiments ready.
I white heat-embossed the sentiment onto an ink-blended panel for the yellow card. I used Aged Mahogany, Worn Lipstick, and Tattered Rose Distress Oxide inks for the background.The sentiments were die-cut with the coordinating die. I kept the pink card’s sentiment simple, stamping it with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.
Thanks so much for joining me today. I hope I have helped you with ideas on mixing products together to use in new ways!
