October 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop / Theme: Autumn Color Challenge



Welcome to the October 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who Love what we do and share what we Love. Our theme for the Hop this month is Autumn Colors. We have a photo that we were to use for our inspiration, and it shows all of the beautiful colors of fall. I live in the mountains in a little town called Evergreen in Colorado. The Aspen Trees are turning, the Elk are bugling. Fall is in full swing up here.

I chose the Falling For Leaves Bundle to create a card for this theme. I've used a couple of different techniques on this card. I used the Rock & Roll Stamping on the Stitched Shapes Sentiment Square. I layered this onto a Gray Granite Scalloped Layering Square.  The multicolored leaves first started as piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock that I Sponged with Granny Apple Green, Real Red and Pumpkin Pie Inks. I covered the entire piece with these colors. I then brushed on my Fine Tip
Glue with a small stiff bristled brush. Going in all different directions. This did 2 things, blended the colors a bit and added texture. I allowed this to dry and then cut my leaves with the Coordinating Detailed Leaves Thinlits (You can save 10% when you purchase the stamp set and dies as a Bundle). My Card Front is stamped with the remaining two colors, Gray Granite & Soft Suede. I stamped all of the smaller leaves, stamping off once each time to create a lighter effect.
Turning the stamps every time to fill  the Card Front. Then I speckled the Card Front with Soft Suede Ink.  To assemble the card I added a panel of Soft Suede Cardstock to the Card Front. I added some Dimensionals to the back of the Sentiment Squares and then added my Leaves. I adhered all of this to the Soft Suede Panel with some more Dimensionals. I did stamp one of the leaf sprigs onto the Inside Layer before I adhered it to the inside of the Card Base, which by the way is Gray Granite Cardstock.
