Hi Friends! This is Caly and I’m happy to be here today to share a fall card! Are you ready for fall? I feel like we were just wishing for summer when COVID-19 began and we’ve been cooped up inside hiding from the heat. We’re continuing the Make the Sentiment the Star Challenge and I hope you’re enjoying the inspiration and that you’ll play along!
For today’s card, I used images from the Happy Harvest and the Pick of the Patch sets. The Happy Harvest set is one of the first sets I’ve ever owned and I think that scarecrow has my heart. I came across the squirrels in the Pick of the Patch set and just had to use them for my scene today.
I stamped and colored my images using Copic markers. After die-cutting them all with the coordinating dies, I set them aside to work on my background.
Copic colors used:
Pumpkins: Y15, Y17, Y38, YR07
Face: E51, E55, E93
Birds: C4, C6, C8, Y15, Y17, Y38
Reds: R22, R24, R27, R89
Blues: B93, B95, B97, B99
Greens: [G40, G43, G46], [G03, G09]
Squirrels: E30, E33, E35
Sunflowers: Y11, Y15, E31
Stake: E50, E34, E37
My background is ink-blended with Distress Oxide Inks using Lucky Clover, Twisted Citron, and Mustard Seed. To give the panel some texture, I first sprayed it with water and then splattered it with some watered down Lucky Clover and white paint. When dry, I used the Large Slimline with Sliders die to die-cut the stitched border.
I die-cut my sentiment word and letters using Black Licorice cardstock from the Scripty Happy die and Cole’s ABCs die set. I centered and adhered these down first, then framed my sentiment in with the images I colored.
I hope you enjoyed this card! This challenge runs for 3 weeks! If you decide to play along, be sure to link your projects by Sunday September 6th at 11:59 pm PST! Click HERE to join the challenge!
