Fall Y’all Colorful Seasons card was inspired by a pumpkin I saw at a store yesterday. It had copper on it and y’all know that is my favorite!
Living in Sierra Vista, AZ I don’t really see fall colors per se. My Bucket List item is to go to New England in the fall! I love seeing the changing of the leaves! So for now I have to use my stamps, paper and ink to create my own fall leaves!
I used the technique of using re-inkers, glossy paper, rubbing alcohol and cotton balls! Now that Stampin’ Up! sells glossy card stock I can pull out some of the good ole’ techniques using that paper!
And as I mentioned I had to use some copper! Copper Embossing Powder is my absolute favorite and I use it and the Copper Foil sheets whenever I can.
How did I make this card
I used Rubbing Alcohol and cotton balls. I put drops of ink refills (Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry & Garden Green) then I dabbed the cotton ball all over the glossy card stock.
Then I cut out the solid leaves and the outline leaves with the Seasonal Layers Thinlets to cut out the glossy paper
I also used the Copper Foil sheets and the Seasonal Layers Thinlets to cut out the outline of the leaves.
The fun way to make a pumpkin is to use the Oval Layering Framelits (cut 3) to make a pumpkin. I used Pumpkin Pie card stock then ran that thru the Softly Falling embossing folder. I inked up the logo side of folder with Versamark ink and ran the three pieces of Pumpkin Pie embossing folder. Poured Copper Emboss Powder and heat set them.
All you do next is pour the Copper Embossing Powder over the pumpkin pieces and heat set. I only did two of them and put those on the sides. I did use Fast Fuse to adhere all three pieces because of the embossing powder, I didn’t want it to fall apart! I added to the card with Stampin’ Dimensional’s!
You can see that I did use Copper Embossing for the sentiment.
For the leaf on the pumpkin I used the Leaf Punch and the Swirly Snowflakes Framelits from the Holiday Catalog and Garden Green card stock.
