For this event, we are showcasing the Double Stitched Nesting, Wonky Stitched Nesting and Tri-Frame slimline dies from Kat Scrappiness and the“Happy Fall” Stamp set from Not 2 Shabby.
Here’s the first card that I made:
I went for a clean and simple design for my first card. The background was die-cut using the Wonky Stitched Nesting Slimline die on a panel of Bristol smooth white card stock and ink-blended with distress oxide inks. I wanted the colors to be very subtle to create an early morning autumn sky. I splattered some color on the background using aged mahogany distress oxide ink, mixed with water for added texture and dimension. I also die-cut the rest of the elements that I needed to create my scene.
The images were stamped and colored with Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers and fussy-cut using precision snips. I adhered the images onto the background using liquid glue. I foam-mounted the scarecrow for added dimension. Here’s a closer look:
The sentiment was stamped on black card stock with Versamark ink and heat-set with my heating tool. I love the simplicity of this card and the colors of the images just really popped against the subtle background!
Since I colored a lot of images, I decided to make a second card.
I really love this Happy Fall stamp set by Not2Shabby. Here’s a little close-up:
