This is the front of the Tri-fold card.

This panel is on the left opening of the Tri-fold card.

The Stamps of Life November 2022 Card Kit - Tri-fold Card with Critters

This is what the Tri-fold card looks like when fully opened.

Directions:

Card Base
Using the Tri-fold card base die, die cut a piece of White cardstock. Fold at the score lines so the right panel folds inward and the left panel folds inward.

Card Front
Using the background die from the Tri-Fold card die set, cut it with Poppy cardstock. Using a rectangle die from the Tri-fold card die set, cut a piece of the Peacock cardstock. Layer the background die cut piece on top of the Peacock rectangle die cut piece and then place it on the front of the card base. Add the bear, tree stump, and sentiment.

Left Panel
Cut a piece of the Poppy cardstock with the stitched rectangle die from the Tri-Fold card die set. Use a grass die to die cut a piece of the Kiwi cardstock. Use the same stitched rectangle die to die cut the grass die cut. This will put the stitching along the sides of the grass.
The grass die is Sunny Studio Stamps Nature Border Dies.

Center Panel
Open the card. In the middle panel, add the Huge Hugs die cut, a bear, and a leaf from the sticker sheet.

Card 7 – Step-up Card using the Tri-Fold Card Die Set

The Stamps of Life November 2022 Card Kit - Tri-fold Card with Moose - Stand Up Card

Card Base
Using the Tri-fold card base die, die cut a piece of the Midnight (navy blue) cardstock. Fold at the score lines so the right panel folds inward and the left panel folds inward. Flip the card base so that it displays horizontal rather than vertical. (The long side should be at the bottom.)

Card Front
Cut a piece of the red pattern paper with the stitched rectangle die. Cut a piece of the Kiwi (green) cardstock with a grass die. I used the Sunny Studio Stamps Nature Border die set. Using the same stitched rectangle die, die cut the grass die. This will put the stitching along the sides of the grass. Add the moose, sentiment, and leaves.

Bottom Panel
Die cut a piece of the green pattern paper. Add three leaves from the sticker sheet, adding foam underneath. The foam will allow the stickers to raise slightly. This will create some height so that the front panel stays open to sit behind the leaves, thus making it a stand-up card.

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.

Fall Card with Distress Spray Stains - Scrapbook.com Hi Fall Stamp - Scrapbook.com Autumn Breeze Stencil - Scrapbook.com Autumn Leaves Die

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.

Distress Spray Stain Backgrounds for Fall or Autumn Cards

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.

Pretty Pink Posh - Autumn Card - Happy Mail Card - Fall Card - Pumpkin border - Card with Mice

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. If you want to see how I made this card, click here to watch the video on YouTube.

Card 1

Pretty Pink Posh - Sunflower Handmade Cards - Mouse Friends Stamp Set - Potted Sunflowers Stamp Set

For this card, 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 Antique Linen ink in the center and Tumbled Glass ink on the top. I added the Picket Fence die where the Tumbled Glass and the Shabby Shutters ink meet. I stamped the sentiment from the Potted Sunflowers stamp set. Next, I added all of my stamped images to create this cute fall scene. Finally, I added the card panel to an A2 size card base.

On the back, you can add a place to secure a gift card.

Mini Coffee Cup Gift Card Holder

To create the holder, cut a piece of 110 lb. cardstock to 2 3/4″ x 11″. Next, score it at 3/4″, 3 1/2″, 4 1/4″, and 7″.

Use a 2 1/4″ circle die to cut a circle out of the cardstock between the 3/4″ score line and the 3 1/2″ score line.

Here are the measurements for the pattern paper layers:
2 5/8″ x 5/8″
2 5/8″ x 3 7/8″

In my YouTube tutorial, I will show you how easy it is to decorate these mini coffee cups and to create the holder.

Fall Slimline Card - Birthday Slimline Card - Oh Nuts Pink and Main - Birch Tree Stencil Simon Says Stamp
Distress Ink, Fall Cards, ink blending, Pink and Main, Stencil

Fall Birthday Slimline Card

Hello Crafty Friends.

Today I’m sharing a slimline card I made which can be used for someone who has a birthday during the fall season. The stamp set I used is Pink and Main’s Oh Nuts stamp set. This stamp set is so versatile. It includes three adorable squirrels which can be used year-round, not just for fall. I also used Simon Says Stamp Birch Tree stencil. The stencil is slimline in size, but it can also be used on a 5″ x 7″ card and even an A2 size card.

Fall Slimline Card - Harvest Greetings Stamp Set - Pink and Main
Fall Cards, Pink and Main

Fall Slimline Card

Hello Crafty Friends.

Today I’m sharing a fall slimline card I made using the Harvest Greetings stamp set from Pink and Main.

Fall Slimline Card with Scarecrow - Harvest Greetings Stamp - Pink and Main

Fall Slimline Card - Harvest Greetings Stamp Set - Pink and Main

If you would like to see how I made this card, watch my YouTube video below.

I started off by stamping the images onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the images with Copic markers. I have a list of all of the colors I used in the supplies section below.

Next, I cut a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock to 8 1/4″ x 3 1/4″. I ink-blended a sky using distress oxide inks. The colors I used are Peacock Feathers, Broken China, Scattered Straw, Fossilized Amber, and Carved Pumpkin.

Next, I glued the images to the cardstock and added it to a slimline card base that measures 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.
