I have a couple of cards to tempt you with tonight using Fall Friends and Fall Friends Die-namics. First up a not-so-scary scarecrow, stamped on X-Press It Blending card with Black Licorice hybrid ink and colored with Copic markers. I added texture to his straw hat by dabbing it with a paper towel soaked in Blending Solution after it was colored. He’s accompanied by a pumpkin from the set to which I added “vines” created with an image from Bold Blooms. The background was sponged on Smooth White card stock with Blue Breeze dye ink and Jellybean Green dye ink and the sentiment was stamped with Black Licorice hybrid ink.
I cut the side with Stepped Up Chevron Die-namics, added an accent of Black Licorice card stock cut with Stepped Up Chevron Die-namics and then popped up on foam mounting tape on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with some Tiny Check Brights Paper Pack added. I finished off with a Blueprints 21 Die-namics sun and some Puffy Clouds Die-namics.
Next up, a field of sunflowers. Reminds me of Tuscany. Sigh :)
I created my background by applying a wash to Ranger Watercolor Paper with Peerless Watercolors and a waterbrush, then splattered it with clear water. The sunflowers were cut from Ranger Watercolor paper, colored with Peerless Watercolors, and popped up on foam as was the birdie.
The sentiment was stamped with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock cut with Blueprints 25 Die-namics and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder before also being popped up on foam. My card base was made from Sweet Tooth card stock.
And that’s it! I hope I’ve given you some ideas for using YOUR Fall Friends stamp set and Fall Friends Die-namics in some fun ways. Thanks so much for stopping by…and happy shopping!!
