Tree Challenge Card Two

Another tree card that was completed today. I am still using Thoughtful Branches and the greeting is from Autumn Wishes, by Gina K Designs. I had so much fun stamping the leaves in Autumn colors. I used Hero Arts and Lawn Fawn inks for the leaves and Memento ink for the branches and greeting. I am enjoying pulling out older sets to use along with the combination of inks and papers.

Paper Piecing Hello Pumpkin

Having fun with a new Gerda Steiner Designs stamp.

Hello Pumpkin

I used a Darice embossing folder for the tree. It is cut from SU Chocolate Chip cardstock, with the leaves colored with several markers laying close. I used Celebrate Autumn from Echo Park for the paper piecing. The bear is colored with various alcohol markers. This was fun to create. It has been quite a while since I paper pieced. I will post this to Gerda Steiner Designs challenge for September.

Basket Weave Fall Card

I made a card with the basket weave technique for the Thursday challenge on Split Coast Stampers. I specifically chose fall colors to work with the Mod Squad Challenge for this week: http://modsquadchallenge.com/fall-stampendous/

Basket Weave inside

The cardstock used is SU Early Expresso and GKD Ivory. I used scraps for the die cut leaves. I wanted the die cut leaves on the front and they needed to be on a color that would help them to be seen, so I made the labels to place them on. The labels were cut using a Hero Arts die and embossed with SU Layered Leaves 3D folder. The sentiment “grateful” came from GKD Skeleton Leaves.

The inside was stamped with a leaf image that was won in a grab bag from Gina K Designs. I do not know the name of the stamp set it originally came from. I used fall colored Memento inks to stamp it. The inside sentiment came from SU Painted Harvest. It is stamped in Memento Expresso Truffle which is a great match for the cardstock.

This was a fun technique to learn and create.
