I have a few cards to share today, some of which you may have seen on my Instagram feed (@oneallgirlstudio). The first card is a new one that I made for the hop. It features a couple of playful squirrels from Nuts About You
I love some good light hearted humor so I was very excited to see this new super fun set. It's full of cute images and great puns to go with the squirrel and acorn theme.
Supplies used to make this card are listed below:
- Nuts About You stamp set - squirrel and acorn images; stamped greeting
- Nuts About You Honey Cuts
- Itty Bitty Leaves Honey Cuts - die cut maple leaves
- Branch & Leaves Honey Cuts - die cut branch
- Tumbled Glass & Dried Marigold Oxide Ink - ink blended background
- Tes Dye, Ripe Persimmon, & Seedless Preserves Oxide Ink - colors on leaves
- Nuvo Hybrid Acorn Brown Ink (Copic friendly) - stamped images
- Copic colors E40, E41, E43, E44, R20 - squirrels
- Copic colors E70, E71, E74, E77 - acorns
This next card features some beautiful new Honey Cuts - Lovely Layers Maple Leaf and Autumn Buzzword. Once again I've turned to my Distress Oxide Inks to color the die cuts.
I die cut the leaves from both white and kraft card stock and then shaded with Seedless Preserves and Walnut Stain. The contrast of the detail layer over the solid layer is so stunning but quick and easy to achieve.
My next card showcases a collage of pretty leaf images which are from the Hello Fall stamp set. I used three colors of Oxide Inks to ink up the solid leaf images - Wild Honey, Mowed Lawn, & Carved Pumpkin.
After I applied ink to the stamps, I used a damp paper towel to lightly dab the ink. That is what gives the stamped images a little bit of texture. I stamped the vein detail with Walnut Stain. I used the same Oxide inks to create a messy watercolored background to build my collage on.
For this last card, I have used images from Let's Hang Out to create a country vignette with a fall color palette. Copics used to color the images are as follows:
YG61, YG63, YG67, Y32, Y35, Y38, YR01, YR07, YR09, R20, E40, E41, B32, B34, B39, N2, N4, N6
The fun plaid background is a new 6x6 stamp called Farmhouse Check. I stamped it once in green and then a second time in orange. I just repositioned the stamp so the lines create the plaid pattern.
