Fall in Love tag with May Flaum

Fall in love tag with May Flaum

Hello and happy pumpkin season! May Flaum here to share a new project with you. It's my favorite time of year, and today I'm here to share just one idea on how to put your stamps (and card making skills) to use in another kind of way. Create a gift tag! Perfect for a gift or a neighborly offering of baked goods or just because - it's the season for giving. This project features the new Fall in Love stamp and Cinderella Pumpkin stamp as well. 
To start, I stamped the pumpkin and then "fall in love" on watercolor paper. 
Once this is stamped, go ahead and color as you please. I used Clean Color markers and a water brush to blend.
Tip: add in some red for a richer more vibrant pumpkin!
 Once dry, it is ready to go! If you want a more wild and messy look then spray with water and watch the color go! This works with most watercolor/water reactive mediums.
 From here I mounted onto contrasting papers, added some twine through a hole, and it's ready to go!
I simply adore how this turned out and I've got a fresh batch of pumpkin muffins ready to share with a neighbor - all tied up with this tag! Remember our stamping and card skills can easily be used for home decor, tags, and even scrapbooks! I hope I've inspired you to play with some fall stamps today.

Pumpkin and Leaves Thank You Card by Debbie Seyer

Hello friends! Debbie Seyer here today to share with you a card I created using 2 new stamps from Pink Ink called Dancing Leaves and Cinderella Pumpkin. One of my most favorite stamping techniques is to heat emboss and I thought both of these stamps would be perfect for that technique.

As you can see, I stamped the Dancing Leaves stamp all over the brown cardstock using embossing ink.  Then I sprinkled on some Copper embossing powder and heat set it.  I also stamped the Cinderella Pumpkin using the Copper embossing powder but I stamped it on some watercolor paper.  I used the some Sparkle Markers and a water brush to color the image.

I used a die for the sentiment.  I die cut it 3 times and glued the layers together, then I inked up the die cut with embossing ink and used the copper embossing powder.  I ended up doing 2 layers of embossing powder to get the look I wanted!  Here is a closer look at my card.

I really love the stamps I used for this card and think it turned out really great!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Dancing Leaves by Sharon Harnist

It's beginning to feel a little like Fall -- one of my favorite seasons! So today's 
card honors cooler temperatures and rich, beautiful Autumn colors!

 The new Pink Ink Dancing Leaves #5111K was stamped with Memento 
Tuxedo Black ink onto a Neenah 110 lb. Solar White top-folding card and the
beautiful leaves colored mainly with these Copic markers: E07, E25, YG95, 
YR07, YR24:

With a little blending assistance from Copic E21/23, R02, YG00/11/91, YR04, YR21 markers.  I love the pretty font/handwriting of the sentiment!

The leaf frame was created by Copic airbrushing an embossing folder before running it through a die cut machine to dry emboss the cardstock. You can find the full tutorial on how this look is achieved in this post over on my personal blog. The leaf frame was popped up with foam tape over the stamped image.

Happy Fall . . . Thanks for joining me today!
