I hope you are enjoying the beautiful fall that we are experiencing. I love the colours that come with a traditional fall in southwestern in Ontario. The rich reds, golds and yellows this year are amazing! They seem so bright this year.
My Pumpkin Kisses & Harvest Wishes card is a celebration of this time of year. I used a combination of techniques to create it: foil, stamping and colouring, embossing, and embellishing.
I created a 6″ x 6″ card from AC Cardstock in Tangerine from their Tropical package. I used Recollections creamy white cardstock from Michaels to create a base slightly smaller, 5-11/16″. I roughed up the edge of the white cardstock slightly to give it some texture.
I used Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps’ Falling Leaves stencil with Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo all over the base. I let that dry overnight. The next day, I cut a sheet of Deco Foil in Amber Watercolour and put the piece through my laminator. I love using this foil colour for falling leaves.
While I was waiting for the gel to dry, I stamped the large leaves and the pumpkins using my Misti. I used Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Harvest Blessing, Falling Leaves, Thankful Pumpkins, and Happy Fall Y’all stamps.
I coloured in the leaves and the pumpkins using my Copic markers using:
YG 63,67, 93, 91
R 27, 29, 46, 59
YR 14, 15, 16, 18
Y 17, 19, 35
I fussy cut all the pumpkins and leaves and added them to the front of the dry and foiled card base using Scrapbook Adhesive foam squares.
I die cut a vellum tag and used the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Pumpkin Kisses stamp to emboss the saying with WOW gold embossing powder. I used vellum tape from Scrapbook Adhesives to add it to the front. I embellished it with a couple of Picket Fence Studio sequins in Spiked Cider.
I added the foiled front to the tangerine base using more foam squares to provide additional dimension.
The final touch: outlining the pumpkin lines with Nuvo Glitter Drops in Golden Sunset and brushing some glitter onto the leaves.
I love how this card turned out. Such a pretty celebration of fall!
Thanks for stopping by!
