For my first project, I started by masking some Bristol smooth white card stock with masking tape and ink-blending this panel using the Sunscape Stencil and some distress oxide inks. I cut this panel and adhered on some Neenah solar white card stock with liquid glue.
I added some texture to the foreground by using some embossing folder and partially embossed the same on the die-cutting machine, then adhering it to a top folding notecard.
I finished the card design by stamping the sentiment on the banner that was die-cut from the Frames & Flags Die Set and heat-set with the heating tool. Here’s another look:
The next project is so cute and I love how this turned out. I started by temporarily taping the Jack-O-Lantern stencil no. 1 on some Neenah solar white panel. I used some orange ink and a blending brush to add the pumpkins.
I did the same to add the pumpkin stems detail by taping Jack-O-Lantern stencil no. 2 to the panel and used some lime green dye ink with another blending brush. I removed the stencil and cut this panel and adhered on some pattern paper from the Autumn Paper Pad with liquid glue.
I needed to ground the pumpkin images from the pattern paper so I adhered two orange strips on both sides, and added the scallop vellum that was die-cut using the Oval Frames Die. The vellum somehow toned down the busy patterns of the background, don’t you think?!
I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and die-cut using the coordinating die. I colored the images with some alcohol markers and foam-mounted to the card-front for added dimension. I stamped the sentiment on the image with some black ink.
Lastly, I added the orange bow to the card to finish my design. In case you’re wondering, the bow is from the Baby Bib Die Set. Here’s another look at the card:
