I'm up on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog today with a Autumn-inspired card. Its actually Spring-time for us here in New Zealand so its hard to imagine all the Autumn colours but had lots of fun using a new to me stamp and matching die set:
I grabbed some of my warm-coloured Distress Inks first because I knew I wanted to create some blending for a warm background. I cut a panel of watercolour CS and used my mini-blending tool to blend 'Spiced Marmalade', 'Mustard Seed', 'Barn Door' and 'Gathered Twigs'. Once I was happy with the colours I sprayed it with Imagine Crafts Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Spritz, doing it close up so there were lots of blobs of liquid. I gently dabbed them with tissue to remove the colour and dried with my heat gun. This was then adhered to the card front.
I cut a panel of white CS the same size as my card front and die-cut the second-largest die from the Bubble Box Fri-Dies set. After adding lots of foam tape to the back of it I popped it over the blended panel to create a frame.
For the sentiment I cut a circle of white CS using a die from the Ornament Tag Fri-Dies set and heat embossed the sentiment in gold from Autumn Blessings. To add a bit of interest I die-cut some leaves using the Acorn Fri-Dies from different brown shades of paint chips. I adhered them to the back of the circle and then to the card front. And for a bit more bling I added some orange and gold sequins from Neat and Tangled.
