Distress Spray Stains – Autumn Cards

Hi Crafty Friends!

Today I’m sharing two autumn cards using distress spray stains. Spray stains are such an easy way to get a lot of ink on your cardstock for creating backgrounds, die cutting, and more.  The distress spray stains come in all of the same colors as the distress inks, however, they are in a liquid spray.  I picked up several different colors and will be using some of them for my cards today.

Watch my video on YouTube or below to see how I made my cards.

I started by adding several colors of the Distress Spray Stains to watercolor cardstock. Between applications, I dried the backgrounds and then added more ink. I love the look of the distress spray stains on the cardstock. It gives such depth and texture to the cardstock. Even though I used the same colors for each piece of cardstock, every background is different.

Next, I turned those backgrounds into cards. For the card below, I used one of the backgrounds with the Scrapbook.com Autumn Breeze stencil. I spritzed the stencil with water and added it to the inked background. The water moved the ink around on the cardstock, leaving the open area of the stencil without water which made those areas look darker so you can see the shape of the leaves and pumpkins. I used another background to die cut it with the Scrapbook.com Autumn Leave dies. I added a sentiment from the Scrapbook.com Hi Fall Stamp Set.

For the card below, I added the leftover die cut leaves to a card to create the look of pattern paper and added a sentiment from the Scrapbook.com Hi Fall Stamp Set in the middle. I love the look of the die cut leaves against the white background. I think the white background really makes the leaves “pop”!

Autumn Leaf Wreath Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Hello crafty friends.

I’m sharing an autumn card using the new Autumn Leaf Wreath stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh. 

Autumn Leaf Wreath Handmade Card - Pretty Pink Posh - Fall Wreath Card - Autumn Wreath Card - Coloring Autumn Leaves

If you would like to see how I made my card, be sure to check out my video below or on YouTube.

One thing I love about the fall season is the changing colors of the leaves and so I wanted the leaves in my wreath to have several fall colors in them. It was so easy to get a beautiful blend of fall colors by using only four colors of the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. The pens I used were red, orange, yellow, and mid green. These colors blended seamlessly. If there were any parts that needed a little extra blend, I used the blender marker to do that. The blender marker is simply a marker with a blending solution in it to help move the colors on your paper, however, a paint brush and water would work too. Once my coloring was complete, I die cut the wreath with the coordinating dies.

Next, I worked on my background. I cut a piece of cardstock to 4” x 5 1/4” and used the Trellis stencil along with Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink. 

I stamped the sentiment “Fall Blessings” and then I added the wreath to the top portion of the stenciled card panel, popping it up with foam. 

I added some twine around the bottom portion of the card panel and tied it in a bow. I added two additional larger leaves from the stamp set and I added an acorn image to the top of the bow. Next, I added some Pistachio Pearls to the wreath and to the card front.

Finally, I added the stenciled panel to a piece of brown cardstock that measures 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” and then added it to an A2 size card base.

Thank You Autumn Scene Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Hello crafty friends.

I love to make scene cards and today I’m sharing a thank you autumn scene card using several new products from the Pretty Pink Posh September release which is all about autumn. To celebrate the new autumn release, Pretty Pink Posh is having an Instagram hop where you have a chance to win a $30 gift certificate to the Pretty Pink Posh shop. More information about the Instagram hop is at the end of this blog post.

Pretty Pink Posh Autumn Card - thank you card - happy mail card - autumn scene card - fall envelopes - fall borders

When I first saw the Mouse Friends stamp set, I thought the mice would be so cute holding the big envelope from the Fall Envelopes stamp set. I love how the autumn leaves look like they are flying out of the envelope. Of course, an autumn card wouldn’t be complete without pumpkins so I used the pumpkin border from the Fall Borders stamp set and colored the pumpkins in various autumn colors.

If you would like to see how I made my card, be sure to check out my video below or on YouTube.

For this card, I started by coloring my images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. The colors I used are listed below. Next, I cut a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and used Distress Oxide inks to ink blend the background. I used Shabby Shutters ink on the lower inch of the cardstock. I used Tumbled Glass ink on the top.  Next, I assembled the stamped images onto my card panel. Finally, I added the card panel to an A2 size card base.
