Colored Seasons

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons bundle with Seasonal Layers framelits and Stampin' Blends alcohol markers , Beautiful Bouquet - autumn fall handmade birthday card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Hey, everyone! Today I have a fall-themed birthday card for you. I’m using the Colorful Seasons bundle along with the Stampin’ Blends (surprise!). This card makes me miss Idaho so much! We had a gorgeous silver maple in our back yard that had the most brilliant, fiery red leaves in the fall.

I’m playing along with the Fusion Card Challenge (Autumn Leaves) today. I decided to just use the photo for my inspiration today.

I stamped the leaves in Cherry Cobbler ink, and after it was dry, I colored the leaves using the Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I also used the Color Lifter as needed (and to fix lots of little errors). After coloring the leaves, I sponged around the whole edge of the cardstock in Cherry Cobbler ink with a Stamping Sponge.

I added a Gold Glimmer Paper leaf cut with the Seasonal Layer thinlits (just because I decided my card needed some gold sparkle), then added the sentiment with some Gold Metallic Thread behind it. The sentiment is from Beautiful Bouquet and cut with the Lots of Labels framelits. After barely using these at all last year, I find that I use them all the time now!

On the inside, I stamped a leaf and another sweet sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet. I sponged the edges of the cardstock again before adding it to the card.

Stampin' Up! handmade wedding or anniversary card with Year of Cheer specialty paper, Graceful Garden and Beautiful Bouquet stamps - #IIBH - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

This month our theme for the hop is Wedding/Anniversary. I would call this card clean and simple, except there is a lot of fussy cutting involved, so I can’t call it simple.

The lattice is from the Graceful Garden stamp set, and I heat embossed that in Copper. I fussy cut the branches from the Year of Cheer specialty paper. This paper is stunning! It was a little time consuming, but totally worth it! I popped up several of the little leaves on baby Dimensionals. The sentiment comes from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set. I finished off the card with Whisper White Baker’s Twine and Copper Metallic Thread.
