OK, I’m using Primitive Pumpkins for my first card. I’m warning you, I had a hard time putting that set down while working on teasers—I love it! I went kinda CAS with this card. First of all, I stamped the star border on Whip Cream card stock and popped it up on foam dots on a Kraft card stock base. I stamped the sentiment and then stamped the pumpkins after I die cut them with the coordinating Die-namics dies. Swoooooooon! To make the little tendrils, I simply wrapped some covered floral wire around a toothpick and adhered them to the back of the die cuts. Sweet!
For the inside of the card, I stamped another sentiment and the little pumpkin trio. I used water based markers to color the stamp so I could get all three colors on it, huffed, and stamped!
My next card uses WTG Fairy Dust and is NOT CAS :) I wanted a very lighthearted and whimsical look for this card. I am using the September Guest Designer sketch for my layout.
I stamped WTG on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 130lb paper, colored her with Copic markers and paper pieced her dress with patterned paper and her wings with vellum. I matted this with gold metallic card stock and adhered a star-shaped rhinestone to her magic wand. I stamped the sentiment on more patterned paper cut with my Die-namics Mini Tab Foursome, embellished with a Die-namics Fancy Flourish behind it. I wrapped some gold cord around for the diagonal elements and popped up a glittered gold Die-namics Star STAX die cut. I put a clear faceted button, tied with more gold cord, on the star.
Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set.
Here are the Die-namics dies I used on these cards:
And that’s it! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Two!
