I’m back this week with a autumn card that’s giving me all the fall feels. I love the way this card turned out – a perfect blend of sweet and rustic charm.
To get started with my card, I used my Mini MISTI to stamp out the truck and pumpkin images from Little Pickup by Honey Bee Stamps. I used black ink for this and stamped a couple of times to get a nice solid impression. Then, I went back with the sentiment stamps from the complimentary set ‘Sending You Sentiments,’ also from Honey Bee Stamps. I love that you can use this set to build your own custom sentiments. I went with ‘sending you autumn wishes and loads of kisses.’ Cute!
I colored up my images using Copic markers and I also used a Copic marker to add a bit of shadow under the truck so it didn’t look like it was floating on the panel. Then, I grabbed my Clarity Stencil brushes and lightly dusted on some Antique Linen Distress Ink. At the bottom, I brushed on Gathered Twigs to help make it look like there was a sky and ground on my card front.
I grabbed a gorgeous piece of patterned paper from my stash to use as background. I absolutely love this paper – I’ve been holding on to it for years, literally! I tied a piece of jute twine around the top of my card and then added some brown sequins. I filled in the sequins with Glossy Accents – I like how this gives another option for some added interest on your card.

Hugs and love to you all,
