Happy Fall Y’all!

Hello and happy Monday! Hope you are all enjoying the cooler weather and the extra hour of rest or crafty time as the case may be.

I am back today with a new card for Dare 2B Artzy featuring the gorgeous new Abundant Blessings stamp set. I love all things Fall so this stamp set just sings to me with all of the colorful possibilities.

I stamped the beautiful pumpkins and fall greenery with Dare 2B Artzy Totally Black Ink.

I colored my stamped images with my Copic markers. I am loving all of the non-traditional colors for Fall this year. I have been gravitating towards beautiful teal-blue’s, rich maroon colors and even some pinks. This stamped image was the perfect opportunity to play with some colors. I even dug into some shades of green that I don’t normally reach for. I absolutely love the end result.

Once my coloring was complete, I used the coordinating die set to die cut my image. While I was at it, I use the die to cut several additional layers from some black card stock. These layers were glued behind my colored image to add a nice shadow layer and some stability in place of using dimensional foam.

For my sentiment, I stamped and heat embossed the Happy Fall Y’all sentiment with some gold embossing powder. I die cut it with the coordinating die and cut some additional layers from back also to add some dimension to my sentiment.

Finally, to create my background, I used the Artzy Deco hot foil plate and some matte gold hot foil and foiled some 100 lb black card stock. I love the look of the matte gold foil against the black card stock

Using the Rectangle Fancy Framelet die, I cut the hot foiled background and set it aside. I die cut a second Rectangle Fancy Framelet from the Autumn Leaves paper pack. I thought this paper complemented my colored image nicely.

Using a paper trimmer, I cut the Fancy Framelet that I cut from the Autumn Leaves paper pack at a little over the half-way mark.

I added some liquid glue to the back of the Autumn Leaves paper and adhered it on top of the foiled Artzy Deco piece.

Using the colored image, I glued it where the two pieces of card stock joined so that the line would be covered by my image

The background was added to an A2 Top Folding card base made from 110 lb Neenah Solar White card stock I used a corner trimmer to round the bottom corners of the card base..

The sentiment was added in the lower right along with some matte gold embellishments.

That finishes up my card for today. Hope you are inspired to color this beautiful stamp set with some different colors today.
