Watercolored Autumn Leaves Card

Hello friends.  Today, I'm sharing another Autumn card, featuring products from Sunny Studio Stamps.  You'll find links to most of the products that I used, at the end of this post.  While you're here, let me mention that Scrapbook.com is celebrating their 20th Anniversary in the craft and hobby industry.  Wow! They're one of my absolute favorite companies that I love to shop with online.  Be sure you check out the deals/coupon section to see what the daily deals are, plus, there's usually a freebie posted as well!  

Before shopping, scroll down for a few creative details on my project.

As I mentioned, I'm using some brand new products from Sunny Studio Stamps.  Autumn is my absolute favorite time of year and I love making seasonal cards.  




When stamping my leaf images, I used Catherine Pooler ink, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  It gives my stamp a much crisper image and better flow for watercoloring.

The technique I used is to swipe my water based brush marker (Tombow and Marvy are great choices) on my Waffle Flower Water Media Mat, then grabbing the color with a damp waterbrush.  I did stamp my leaves onto Strathmore watercolor paper.  You can use mixed media paper as well.





I usually start with darker colors on the edges and work my way in with the lighter colors.  Be sure and expel a bit of water from your water brush, onto a paper towel before grabbing another color.  You also don't want the colors to absorb into the barrel of the water brush which can muddy up your colors.  If that happens, just unscrew your waterbrush and refill with fresh water.




My sentiment was also inked with Catherine Pooler ink, onto Neenah cardstock.  I popped up the partial heat embossed sentiment onto colored cardstock, using foam tape.  All my adhesives are from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.


Don't miss out on the sale and freebies at Scrapbook.com!  Plus, their shipping is super reasonable...as low as $3.99!  THIS is #myscrapbookcom!

Pumpkins, Spice and Coffee!

Hello lovelies.  As of this writing, it is hot as heck fire, here in the deep South.  This crafty chic is anxiously awaiting cooler weather, as Fall is my absolute favorite time of year.  As far as I'm concerned, Fall card making begins in August.  Maybe it's wishful thinking that I can somehow hasten Autumn's arrival.  So be it!

I've had these delicious seasonal papers from Photo Play Paper, sitting silent in the madness known as my crafty domain.  I also heard that Starbucks is about to release Pumpkin Spice Lattes in their shops for the season.  Well, that's all I needed to hear.   I'll share some brief, creative tips below, as well as details on the ever so awesome 20th Anniversary Celebration going on over at Scrapbook.com.  You don't want to miss it!

As much as I love stamping, there is very little on this project.  I'm letting the papers, die cuts and ephemera shine today.  I'm featuring the Fall Breeze  collection from Photo Play Paper and you'll find links to most of the products, at the end of this post.  I also used that adorable polka dot paper from the Photo Play Paper Trick or Treat collection.  I love that both collections have papers that are interchangeable for seasonal projects.

To incorporate my Pumpkin Spice Latte theme onto my ephemera word bubble quote, I masked and stamped the words SPICE and LATTE from the Lawn Fawn stamp set, Pumpkin Spice, using my Misti stamp positioner and Catherine Pooler ink.


from: Scrapbook.com





The mug and whip die set is from Stephanie Barnard Stamps of Life and is called 
Hot Chocolate.  It works wonderfully as a mug of yummy Pumpkin Spice!  For my whip, I ink blended the edges with more Catherine Pooler ink, then added some puffy paint, real candy sprinkles and orange colored glitter.  My background was blended with Ranger Ink and distress splatters.  I love how it turned out!


Scrapbook.com is celebrating their 20 year Anniversary all month long in August.  Be sure to check back frequently for various sales and freebies!


More Specials!


Right now, you can get this 3 pk of exclusive daubers free, when you add to your order.  This is for a limited time and supplies are limited, so don't wait!  I love these daubers!





Thanks so much for popping in today!  Terri
