Today I’d like to share another tutorial with you. I’m running a bit behind because my internet is having issues. So please bear with me as I work through this problem over the next few days. Today’s card uses the Floating & Fluttering Bundle found in the 2021 January – June Mini.
This bundle of products doesn’t contain sentiments so it was perfect to team up with the FREE Sale-a-bration stamp set Heal Your Heart (Sale-a-bration 152291) that you can earn when you purchase this bundle and spend $50 in product.
Want to see the card now? I chose one of my favorite color combos for it – Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green.
When doing a technique like blending colors you’ll want to choose colors next to each other on the color wheel rather than across from each other for a more pleasing feel. If you use colors across from each other you’ll get a more “muddy” look when you blend them.
If you don’t remember your childhood art class basics, there are primary colors Red, Blue, and Yellow.
When primary colors are mixed with the color next to them you get the secondary colors, orange, violet, green. And of course, if there is more of one of the primary colors in the mix that is more dominate, you’ve got the tertiary colors or 3rd set of colors.
If you’ve been stamping for a while you probably do this intuitively with your color combinations without even realizing it as we all have color palettes we use repeatedly because they make us happy.
On to the tutorial. I’ve created both a video and PDF for you that I wanted to share.

Beautiful Autumn Thank You Card Video Tutorial
I love having the measurements printed out so I can refer to them also, so here is a PDF for you. And of course all my tutorials include the link to the video on them for easy reference when you are ready to craft.
Have you ever wondered why I include both the ink pad AND refill number in my PDFs? Well back when I started stamping I only purchased the ink pads and then when I needed the ink refill I didn’t have them. Lesson learned, now I always suggest purchasing them together – no headaches when you need to them and are in the middle of the project your making. AND even more fun there are some great techniques that use those reinkers by themselves too!
Enjoy and you’ll want to make sure to keep reading until the end for the supply list.

Want quick and easy Thank you cards for your graduate to use? With the 25% OFF Sale going on right now it is not only quick but also easy to do with My Digital Studio.
Check out these great thank you notes that I created with the Embark Graduate Ensemble Download (item 133467) last month for my daughter.
I created my Thank you card once with the built in template and then decided that I wanted to try a different color combination for the outside of the card. Here is the Tangerine Tango version of the card.
And for the inside I used my daughter’s picture (yes, the butterfly is real what luck right?)
and a basic thank you above where my daughter can write her note.
I dated the back of the card with the year and school so they know when the picture was taken. If they’re like me they might place it somewhere safe and then later find it and not remember right? Sound familiar – lol.
It’s Tuesday so that means NEW Digital Downloads. Check the latest out – There is a great one so that you can get ready for Father’s Day now during the 25% Off Sale!
