Fall card galore

What a busy fall it has been! The BOGO event was super well attended. I need to start ordering more stamp sets so that I have some retired stamps to sell next year....

I had my first fall card class last week, and we created some great cards. The next card class will be Halloween cards, and the class is scheduled for October 13th (Thursday after Thanksgiving).

The first card from the fall card class uses the new Totally Trees stamp set. I LOVE THIS SET!!! I have been making so many cards with this set, using different colour combinations.

This card is made on Crushed Curry card stock, and the torn leaves are made with 'faux suede' technique.

The colours used on this one are Mint Macaroon, Crushed Curry and Pool Party.

Faux Suede:
Cut out your shapes, then curl them with bone folder to different directions to loosen the fibres. Be careful, as the pieces get fragile (some of my leaves ripped, but I was still able to use them by tucking the torn part under). Once the paper layers start peeling, you can tear the pieces apart

The next card using the Totally Trees was inspired by Pinterest. The card stock is Bermuda Bay and the inks are Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party & Sweet Sugarplum. I also used the new glitter ribbon in Sweet Sugarplum (the pack has 2 spools, the other spool is silver)

This third card pair is using same stamp set, but again with different colour combinations.

As you can see, the colours make a huge difference!

The one above and below this, can easily be used throughout the year, whereas this pair is definitely made with fall colours. Not that you could not use those colours throughout the year, but for me, they definitely are fall cards.

Now this last card is the same as the first card, but instead of the faux suede leaves, I used the swirls from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. I also used some ink and a brush to make the watercolour effect behind the trees. The colours on the trees are Dapper Denim, Crushed Curry and Pool Party. And I used the new narrower Burlap Ribbon on this one.

I will post pictures of the other cards in the future postings.

Hope you enjoy your weekend!
