Stampin’ Up! Colorful Fall for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, ready for fall?  Our colorful color challenge this week is perfect for creating fall cards!

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Colorful Seasons stamp set bundle to create the card  I am sharing today:

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

I started by dry embossing a panel of Very Vanilla card stock with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF, then adhered it to a panel of Early Expresso card stock.  Next, I used my Stamping Sponges and sponged Garden Green and Crushed Curry onto a panel of Very Vanilla.  Then, I stamped the leaf image from Colorful Seasons in VersaMark ink onto the sponged piece, added Copper Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  The leaves were die cut using the Seasonal Layers Thinlets.

A length of 1/4′ Copper Trim was wrapped around the embossed panel and a bow was made with Linen Thread.  I frizzed the ends of the Copper Trim and used a glue dot to secure it to the front. The top and bottom leaves were popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the center one was adhered with glue.  The sentiment was stamped in Early Expresso ink, then cut out with a banner die from Bunch of Banners Framelits.  I die cut an extra banner in Crushed Curry and adhered it to either end, then popped it onto the center of the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, the art panel was adhered to the Crushed Curry base and three Glitter Enamel Dots added for some bling.

The small leaf image was inked in Garden Green, then stamped off twice onto scrap paper.  I used a corner of my Crushed Curry ink pad and rolled the stamp over it and then stamped it onto the Very Vanilla panel.  It almost looks real, doesn’t it?

A list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts are at the end of my post.
