Hey crafty friends!
I’m up on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog today and I’m excited to share this card with you. I just had to pull out my new sets from My Favorite Things and get creating.
To start off my card, I stamped the leaf image from Fall Friends repeatedly to form a background pattern. I used embossing ink for this, then covered the ink with Gilded Embossing Powder from Brutus Monroe. This stuff is literally like magic! It’s the most gorgeous gold embossing powder I’ve ever seen.
Once I heat set my background leaves, I grabbed Distress Inks in Aged Mahogany, Carved Pumpkin, and Scattered Straw. I swiped each pad on my craft mat and spritzed the ink with water. I ink smooshed the day away to get that cool blending of the colors. Then I went back after my background had dried and flicked on some aged mahogany to get the darker splatters.
Next, I hand cut a piece of white cardstock in the shape of a hill and blended on some Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. I also used Copic markers to add a little texture to the bottom area. I stamped and fussy cut each of the images I wanted to use from Fall Friends and got coloring. I used my Copic markers for this as well.
I added a few gel pen accents to my images for a little bit of added interest and adhered everything to my card front. I tied a piece of jute twine around the bottom of my card front and added a little bow. To finish off the card, I trimmed down a piece of black cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment ‘Fill the season with warm memories’ in Gilded embossing powder.
This card just screams fall to me – it’s officially making me ready to get my sweaters out (but it’s still almost 90 here in Virginia Beach!). What’s your favorite fall activity? Drop me a comment a let me know!
Hugs and love to you all,
