Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with three Thanksgiving cards I made using stamp sets in Folk Art print style from our Fall 2019 Release : Autumn Sweater, Oak Leaf Print and Thanksgiving Block. For today’s cards I chose a color combination which includes traditional Fall colors like gold and brown along with Navy and coral. I was inspired by some Folk Art Print images I found in Pinterest.
The first card is showcasing Thanksgiving Block clear stamp set. The block image is 3.75″ x 5″ leaving a neat border on a A2 panel.
I stamped Thanksgiving Block on a white A2 sized cardstock. I stamped the upper and lower 1/3 in True Navy and the middle part in gold. It was already beautiful without any additional coloring but I decided to go with my colored pencils. I colored the flowers and leaves in coral, navy, light blue and brown and some leaves using a gold gel pen.
To add a bit of shine I covered the images with a clear glitter pen and added white Pico embellisher on the tiny berries. Lastly I mounted the panel on a navy cardbase and the card was finished!
The second card is showing the Oak Leaf Print stamp set.
I started off by stamping the big folk art oak leaf on a white cardstock in Aspen Cocoa, Found Topaz, Warm Hazelnut, Coralline Hybrid and Peach Blossom in an ombre fashion. I also heat embossed the bottom part in a metallic copper EP.
To create the cut out front panel I used the coordinating cutting file for Oak Leaf Print stamp set. I cut it from some white cardstock, ink blended the lower half in Peach Blossom and the upper half in Warm Hazelnut, and cut the panel to a A2 sized one using a Double Stitched Rectangle die.
I adhered the panel with the oak leaf on a white cardbase and foam mounted the front panel. The sentiments are from Oak Leaf Print and Thanksgiving Block set. I white heat embossed them on some navy cardstock, cut them in strips and added them to the card. I finished off the card by adding some Medallion Gold sequins.
The last card for today is featuring Autumn Sweater stamp set.
First I made the background panel. I pulled out an alcohol ink cardstock panel and colored it using Hazelnut, Mountain Rose, Butterscotch, Sunshine yellow alcohol inks and Gold Mixative. I used lots of rubbing alcohol to blend the colors smoothly.
After the panel was completely dry, I white heat embossed the Autumn Sweater stamp on it. I brushed off the embossing powder from the white area of the panel before heat setting as I wanted to leave the area clean.
To follow the color scheme I chose for today’s cards, I ink blended the branches I cut using a die from Petal Cut Peonies Standalone die set which is now retired. I used True Navy, Arctic Sky and some gold ink.
I adhered the background panel on a white cardbase, added a nest of golden thread and arranged the branches on it as shown in the picture. I then foam mounted the sentiment banner. I scattered some Medallion Gold sequins again to finish off the card.
How do you think about the untraditional color combination for Fall? I love the fresh impact that the added navy gives to the Fall colors.
Hope I could inspire you with my cards today!
