Five Fun and Easy Cards using Fall Leaves to Inspire You

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you five fun and easy projects using Fall leaves that will inspire you this season.  I used the Colorful Season Stamp set and matching Seasonal Layers Dies to create all the projects for today's post.  Here's a look at the projects.

As I mentioned before I used the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set and matching dies to create the projects I am going to share with you today.  I may have gotten a little carried away with the Fall leaves, I am just saying.  The Colorful Seasons Stamp Set is a great one to own because you have images to create projects for every season.  Summer, spring, winter, autumn... I  don't care what season it'll stamp for all of them with this set and you'll have fun doing it! The Colorful Seasons Stamp set is a Photopolymer set featuring 24 photopolymer stamps.  Photopolymer stamps are totally transparent for perfect image placement.  They have just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time.  And, they cling like crazy to our clear blocks so you don't have to worry about slipping.  You can save space—you need only one set of blocks for all your photopolymer stamps (blocks sold separately).  They come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.
Plus when you add the matching Seasonal Layers Dies you can create custom die-cut patterns and shapes like flowers, leaves, snowflakes, a branch, a chair, and more in record time using the Seasonal Layers Dies.  Dies help you create unique die cuts with just a quick run through your die-cutting and embossing machine. Detailed dies include ejection holes so you can remove the paper easily.  So you can see why you want to pair both of these products together to make your crafting life easier.

Fall Leaves Projects Tips & Tricks: 

For the first project I used just stamps ink and paper to create a fun card that's very impressive and gives you the quintessential feeling of Fall.  You may be thinking I can not get all those colors on my leaves, but really you can.  I did all those different colors using the Stamparatus our stamp positioning tool.  The Stamparatus allows you to get perfect placement each time with each image.  here's what I did I stamped the large and small leaves at the same time in Crushed Curry ink onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  Without moving the stamp or the cardstock I then used my Sponge Daubers and put on some Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze inks.  Just dabbing it here and there where I wanted a different hue to be.    I then stamped the out line image on top to finish the leaves off I repeated this process until I had the card finished.  

For the next card I used a little more products and added in some copper foil to the mix to give a little wow to the card.  I started out with my card base in Calypso Coral Cardstock.  And added a strip of Soft Sea Foam Cardstock to the front plus two strips of Copper Foil to accent the foil leaf that I die cut with Seasonal Layers Dies.   I stamped the leaves from the stamp set on to two pieces of Whisper White cardstock in Terracotta Tile and Soft Sea Foam ink.  And, placed a third in the center to pop up the foil leaf.  I stamped the sentiment below with Terracotta Tile ink.
For the third card I threw in a little Come to Gather designer series paper to one side of a Terracotta Tile Card Base.  I added a little strip of whisper white cardstock to under the designer series paper and three of the leaves, two where stamped and die cut and one was the more detailed die cut.  I then added some of the snowflake sequins from the Holiday Catalog to finish it off.

The fourth card I created I used scraps of different designer series paper, past projects that didn't make the cut (pun not intended) and some gold foil and cut them into strips and added them to a strip of cardstock with snail adhesive.  I keep all these strips in the same color family the only difference was the size of the strips.  I then added it behind my card front that I embossed with the Winter Knit 3D Embossing Folder.  I did cut a section a little smaller than my insert out of the card front.  I then added two small strips of real red cardstock to the insert to tie everything in.. I then added one leaf and stamped it the same way as I did with the first card but I added gold embossing to the outline of the leaf.  before cutting it out and popping it up on the card.  
For my final card today, I went all out and created a shaker card.  My window openings were made using the open leaf die from the die set.  I cut tree from a piece of the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper.  I picked matching colors for the rest of the card.  After cutting the openings I add a piece of window sheet to the back cut to size with strong adhesive.  I then used the foam adhesive strips to make my wells for each window.  I used the iridescence sequins in one the Woven Thread sequins in the second one and some fall sequins from a past paper pumpkin kit for the last.  I then added a piece of matching cardstock to the top back to enclose my opening.  I figured out with a lot of time killed that if you cut the backing the same size as the front you don't have to fuse forever to get the sequins covered and to stay in the well.  I then added that to a Purple Posey cardbase with a Soft Sea foam mat.  The sentiment was embossed with Gold Embossing Powder on a piece of Vellum Cardstock.  
That finishes my five Fall Leaves projects for you today.  I hope that you have enjoyed this post and you are inspired to play with some Fall Leaves.  I will see you again tomorrow for another project.

OSAT Blog Hop Spooktacular

Hello and welcome to my blog and the October OSAT Blog Hop.  This month we have a Spooktacular hop for you.  I have created a super fun card and a cute fun Halloween filled dimensional project for you.  Here's a look at my projects for this month's hop.

Crystal Ball Card: 

For my card this month I wanted to create a Halloween card but with a little twist.  And the Snow Globes Shaker Domes and the Snow Globe Dies allowed me to do just that.  I wanted to create a crystal ball on my card and with both those items (by the way they are not just for Christmas) allowed me to create the perfect card that fit the bill.  I started out my card by cutting the snow globe shape from my card front.  Which was a piece of the Monster Bash designer series paper on a piece of Mango Melody cardstock.  Once I had it cut out I wanted to add a little darkness around the edges.  So I masked off my mat on my card front and used a sponge and sponged on so Tuxedo Black ink.  I did this just around the edge of the card so it looked like it was sitting back.
Once that was completed and I had the Snow Globe Shaker Dome in place I added my sequins and another piece of the Monster Bash Designer Series paper over that to enclose the shaker.  For my sequins I used a mix of sequins from past Paper Pumpkin Kits, and some other spooky colored ones I had on hand.  I then cut out the base with a piece of Mango Melody Cardstock, which I added my sentiment to using Versamark ink and some Black Stampin' Emboss Powder.  I then used a couple sponge daubers and added some Mango Melody ink and Tuxedo Black ink around the edge of my die cut shape.  This allowed for more of a vintage look to the crystal ball base.  I then added that to my card front with liquid glue.  I looked at the card and thought it was cute but it needed something else.
That's when I had the idea to make a wood shelf or table top for the crystal ball to be sitting on.  So, I cut a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock to 4 x 1 15/16 and colored it with my Stampin' Blends to create the wood look.  For the coloring I used Soft Suede (combo pack) Crumb Cake (combo Pack), Bronze, and the light Basic Black.  I keep layering the colors until I got the look I wanted.  I then used the sponge again and darkened the back and sides.  I then used the snow globe dies one more time and cut out the opening to fit the base.  I then added that to my card front and added the it to my Smoky Slate card base.

Coffin Shadow Box: 

For my dimensional project this month I knew I wanted to do something with the Coffin Treat boxes but I didn't want to just make a treat box and call it done.  So I had been thinking about how to make them into a shadow box for the last few months.  So, I sat down and spent an afternoon in the craft room to figure out how I could do just that.  And this is what I came up with. 
From the outside I know it looks just like a treat box, but when you open it up, it's a completely different story.  I added some shelves to the inside with some basic black cardstock and liquid glue.  I then added my additional shadow box elements with images from the Spooktacular Bash stamp set and some some of the designer series paper and other elements form the suite.  I stamped and colored the little vampire portrait and cut it out then I added little stands to the back and glued everything in place.  I repeated that process with the jars after cutting each one apart.  I added the sign on the inside of the coffin lid with some of the black dimensionals.  I also dressed it up and added googly eyes to the o's.  I thought that added a super cute touch.  
To finish it off I added the designer series paper to the front and some of the black scalloped edge ribbon to secure it closed.  Well, that's my projects for this month I hope that you have enjoyed them.  If you are viewing this post on my wordpress site you will have to click here to see the blog roll.  If you are on my blogger page (which is my new blog) you can find the blog roll below.
