Autumn Card Sets

Happy autumn! I am so happy to have snagged some of these gorgeous stamps and dies from The Greetery. I created a set of 4 autumn themed cards using three different stamp sets: Budding Beauties, Bottled Up, and Bountiful Wreath.

It's important with these beautiful layering stamps to use a stamping tool to help you position everything perfectly. I LOVE using my MISTI and can't imagine stamping without it!

All of these stamp sets require a lot of layer building, so they aren't exactly what you'd call "quick and easy" cards. However, the impact of the final stamp is gorgeous and definitely worthwhile! 

This first card uses brighter bottles with more traditionally colored autumn flowers. All of these images use a large variety of Hero Arts Shadow Inks, which in my opinion are simply the best inks for layering images! 

Pink bottle and berries stamped using Hero Arts inks in pink.
Yellow bottle and yellow berries stamped using Hero Arts inks in yellow.
Leaves stamped using Hero Arts inks in greens.
All images die cut using my Sizzix Big Shot machine
All images stamped using my MISTI... the MISTI is a must-have when stamping layered images!

This card incorporates some simple watercoloring in the background. I also used an old brick patterned embossing folder to add details. For the watercolor I used a mix of Distress Ink in Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade

I really love how the bright green bottle pops against the black cardstock, so I kept the background very simple. I splattered Color Shine White in the background, then grounded the bottle by swiping my Liquitex White paint pen on the bottom. The berries on these flowers use Hero Arts Ink in light blues and purples.

Saving my favorite for last! I really love the blue tones and the simple background.

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful autumn season!
