Fun Techniques with Autumn Leaves

You can hear the leaves rustle? We’ve had a breezing cool few days here in North Georgia and the colors have really started to pop against the hill sides and along the roads. It feels like it’s happened overnight, but I know it’s a combination of shorter days and cooler nights that create this wonderful array of colors. So today I thought it felt right to share a couple of autumn inspired cards using the Autumn Leaves Bundle (162186).

This bundle has some great sentiments and images for fall crafting and today’s cards use a couple of simple techniques to create some great autumn cards. This first card uses the fun Baby Wipe Technique that uses our Reinkers.

Grab a couple of baby wipes, a few reinkers of your choice and create your own ink pad to create this look. How’s it done? Fold your baby wipes so they create a a size that will work well with your stamp choice, use your of rinkers and place drops of ink randomly around the surface, repeat until you have a variety of colors filling in the space. Then go ahead and stamp! Yep that is it. Just a tip tho, you’ll want to clean your stamp in between your stamping as you’ll muddy the colors on the baby wipe if you don’t. Have fun with it and enjoy the process, you’ll create an original look each time you stamp!

And this next card uses a fun “spot light” technique with the All About Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper (162178).

The leaf shape die has been used to cut out the card front stamped panel and then again from the Designer Series Paper. The Designer Series Paper has been placed in the negative spot using Stampin’ Dimensionals creating a bit of a shadow effect. The Crumb Cake card base peeks through from behind enhancing this effect. The tone on tone stamping is a great backdrop and the bit of Linen Thread (104199) and Adesive Backed Speckled Dots (162191) ties the color scheme together nicely.

So what do you think? Need a birthday card? simply swap out the sentiment with one of your choices these layouts aren’t just for Thanksgiving.
