Plaid Pumpkin Card

Happy Fall! 

I can't believe summer has officially come to an end! But I love Fall and the cooler temperatures, leaves turning colors, and pumpkin everything! 

This card has all the Fall feels! These plaid front stencils from CTMH are AMAZING!! You're going to love creating beautiful artwork with these! 

To create the plaid technique, I first taped down the stencil with some washi tape or masking tape. I sponged the large stripe first with a blending brush and honey butter ink pad. You can create darker or softer shades by how hard you sponge and how much ink you pick up. I sponged the smaller stripes in between the bigger stripe with pumpkin ink. I turned the large stencil opposite directions and sponged with mist ink. In between the large mist stripes, I sponged the smaller stripes with toffee ink. The colors look so pretty together! You will have so much fun creating so many different color combinations!

Thank You Pumpkin Card

Hello everyone!
I have been a little MIA this past year due to some health problems. I took a break from a few things so I could focus on my health. I am excited to be back and start sharing my love of paper crafting with all of you again! 💗

Here's a fun card I created using the X7296B "It's the Good Life" paper and Gnomes for Autumn stamp + thin cuts. How many of you love to decorate using blue pumpkins? I do! I love that they are non-traditional! They are so fun, and they look so cute! This card is perfect for using leftover strips, scraps, and zip strips! I love to create cards that I can use up scraps! I hate wasting! Lol

First, before you begin gluing strips, I used the toffee shimmer brush to splatter the top half of card. You can also use a water brush and toffee ink pad to pick up ink in the lid and splatter your card. 

I cut different sizes in length and width of the paper. Widths are 1/4", 3/8", 3/4", and 1/2". I laid the strips across the card diagonally and glued each one right next to each other. 

I used toffee and mocha cardstock for my sentiment and stamped "Thank you" in Intense black ink. I used the CC72317 Gnomes for Autumn - Scrapbooking Stamp set for the pumpkin, leaf, and sunflower. The "Thank you" stamp is from the Z7071 Floral Notes stamp set. I stamped them all in intense black ink. I colored the pumpkin in the Tri-blend vintage blue blend. The leaf and sunflower were colored in the Tri-blend Muted Brown Blend marker. The stem on pumpkin and center of sunflower were colored with the tri-blend Earth Brown marker. 
I used thin 3-D foam tape to pop out the sentiment, pumpkin, and leaf.
Have fun creating with this cute paper collection and stamps!
