#imbriningbirthdaysback October’s Cards

Each month I send out Birthday Cards to family, friends and you! So I thought I’d share with you my this month’s card and a tutorial for it.

I was really feeling fall when I designed this card and it’s reflected in the colors – don’t you love the way the Painted Autumn stamp set makes the image feel water colored?

I’ve also made a tutorial for you in case you’d like to make some too. After all who doesn’t love getting snail mail in their box? There is nothing better than a hand stamped birthday card,  right?

Tips for using the Painted Harvest Stamp Set

Today’s card is made using the Painted Harvest Stamp Set and there are a couple of things that will make you more successful when you use this set. So today not only will I be sharing the tutorial for the Holiday Catalog Kick Off Make n Take, but I’ve also got a little video for you sharing some basics for this stamp set.

First here is the card that we made.

I love the way that this set has a built in watercolor feel to it – and it has quickly become one of my favorites to use with it’s pretty font. I used Fresh Fig for the flowers on this card and love the richness of the color.

Want the instructions to make this card? Well here is the tutorial

The flowers are  fun to stamp, but I recommend completing one before moving on to the next so you remember your lining up point easier.
