Hi stampers! Are you getting ready for back to school? Have your kids already gone back? Well then this hop is going to be right up your alley! Autumn and Fall are the theme to this months hop. If you come along you can almost smell the crisp air, feel the slight chill and maybe grab your favorite sweater and beverage of choice. Hey we can dream right!?!? It’ll be here before long 🍁🍂☕️
Card base: Thick Very Vanilla 4 1/4″ by 11″, score at 5 1/2″
Very Vanilla Scraps: used to stamp flowers, lights, pumpkins, sign, welcome mat
I cut the door portion from the Thick Very Vanilla panel and set the door aside. I then ran the top half with the missing door through the Big Shot using the Brick Wall embossing folder.
I added Cajun Craze ink to the bricks with a Stampin’ Sponge, I then went over it again with the Smoky Slate ink and a Stampin’ Sponge. I really love how it turned out. What about you? What would you change when you make it yours?
I decided to keep the garland even though they’re holly berries because when I colored them in they look very fall-esque. Of course the sunflowers and pumpkins fit perfectly!
I think dimensionals give so much life to a card, so I kinda went crazy with them here.
I added all the ink into the flowers etc. using the Blender Pens because they give much better control and hues on smaller pieces in my opinion.
I used Pumpkin Pie & Tangerine Tango inks for the pumpkins, Garden Green for the stems and flowerstems.
I used Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Real Red & Smoky Slate inks for the flowers.
I used Smoky Slate and a touch of Dapper Denim for the door, and Crushed Curry for the handle.
I used Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Garden Green, So Saffron & Cajun Crake inks for the garland.
I used Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Real Red, Soft Sky & Smoky Slate inks for the lights.
The mat is stamped in Archival Black ink onto Crumb Cake card stock.
I hope you have enjoyed this creation as much as I loved creating it!
I’d love to hear your thoughts and see your versions too:)
