Good Wednesday morning and welcome to the Cardmaker Magazine and Impression Obsession design team blog hop! Impression Obsession is hosting a giveaway of a $25 gift certificate to shop and you will find lots of inspiration by hopping along to see all of the beautiful projects by both teams. You can find all the hop details on the Impression Obsession blog.
It’s hotter than blue blazes here in Florida so I did my best to cool things off a little by making a fall card. I used the Impression Obsession Tree Die paired with the Oak Leaves and Rake, Bushel of Apples, Pumpkin Patch, Grass Border and framed my scene using the Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames.
I started by sponging in a light blue cloudy sky using Tumbled Glass ink, ink blending tool and cloud template. I I cut the tree frame using watercolor paper, misted it lightly with my mini mister and applied ink directly to the paper using my Vintage Photo ink pad. The pumpkins were cut using orange cardstock and I applied Spiced Marmalade and Vintage Photo inks with a mini applicator to add more color. The leaves were cut using white cardstock and I applied Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint ink with a mini applicator to create the fall colors. The broom was cut using white cardstock and was colored with Spiced Marmalade ink. The bushel basket was cut using white cardstock and Vintage Photo ink was applied with a mini applicator.
I began assembling the pieces of the scene by attaching two layers of the grass border to the back of the frame using double stick tape. I trimmed down the size of the tree frame using scissors and attached it to the back of the frame with double stick tape. I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and the trunk of the tree and attached it to the card base. I placed a few pumpkins in the bushel basket and attached with glue dots. The basket was tucked in behind the grass layers and attached with mounting tape. I placed a few more pumpkins in the grass and around the tree trunk and attached with mounting tape. I used glossy accents to attach the leaves to the branches, a few falling in the sky area and some in the grass. I leaned the rake against the tree and attaching with mounting tape and then applied clear Wink of Stella to the leaves to add a little shine and sparkle.
