CARD DETAILS

I started by stamping several images from the Autumn Blessings stamp set in Copic marker friendly ink that is also waterproof, if you are used to using Memento ink for your Copic coloring, this ink will not work here as it will smear during the last step. Look for something that is also waterproof. Like the Intense Black ink, for example.

Next, color the images with Copic markers. I used the following colors: R39, R35, R24, R22, Y15, YR15, YR18, YG01, YG03, YG94, YG00, YG01, YG03, Y11, Y15, Y17, YG13, and YG25. Cut these leaves out using coordinating dies.

FALL WREATH CARD

I created a partial wreath for this card (I struggled a LOT with this design). I stamped Let’s Get cozy sentiment in black ink using my Mini MISTI stamping tool, I stamped this onto a white panel that measures 3 3/4 x 5” and adhered the wreath onto the panel using glue. I like this off the center design a lot, it is more modern I think.

I cut the excess wreath off and foam mounted the panel onto the A2 light gray card base. I also white heat embossed “Happy Fall” sentiment onto a piece a red cardstock, cut that to a skinny strip, and foam mounted onto the card. I made an angled cut on one end and the other end of the strip went outside the top panel and onto the edge of the card. I also later added a few enamel dots in various shades of yellow and red. I used a shimmer pen from Tonic Studios and added shimmer onto the leaves. This is where it is important to use the waterproof ink for your stamping as these shimmer pens are waterbased.

AUTUMN BLESSINGS PATTERN

For my 2d card, I wanted to do some good old pattern stamping using a sentiment stamp. I picked one the reads Autumn blessings and stamped it at an angle using black ink onto a panel of white cardstock measuring 3 3/4 x 5”. The main sentiment was stamped in black, but for the rest of the sentiments and also the rest of the pattern I picked a light gray ink.

Next, I stamped several leaves for this card using the same waterproof and Copic marker friendly ink, I colored the images with Copic markers, I used the same colors I’ve already mentioned and I cut the leaves out with coordinating dies. The background sentiment pattern catches all the attention on this card and the leaves just add a perfect pop of color to this Fall card.

I used foam adhesive squares and foam mounted the leaves scattering them on the background. I foam mounted it onto an A2 light gray card base and added several enamel dots in yellow and red. Just a few dots here and there and that finished this card.

ABSTRACT INKED BACKGROUND FALL CARD

For my last card, I thought I would make a colorful background and scatter a few leaves around it as if they are falling and swirling in the wind. I pulled out my ink pads with various shades of yellow, orange, pink, and red colors and I used my abstract ink background technique to create a background. This basically is a form of direct to paper ink application where you take the ink pad and swipe it on the paper to get the ink to transfer from the ink pad onto the surface you are working on. I swipe my ink pads in various directions creating a unique one of kind inked backgrounds. You can ink blend a background using yellow, red, and orange inks, I find this method of swiping the ink pads to work a lot easier and faster when creating the background.

I let my background sit for a few minutes to allow the ink to dry. Once my background was dry I took it to my mini MISTI and stamped a sentiment that reads “Hello Fall, The Best Season Of All”. I actually did some stamp surgery to stamp this custom message, but it is easy to cut clear stamps apart as you can always put them back together the way they were.

I also stamped, colored, and die cut a few leaves foam mounted them in place using foam adhesive squares.

So here’s a look at all of the Fall cards I have for you today created with the MFT Autumn Blessings stamp set. I had a blast making these and I hope you picked up a few tips and tricks in my video and will give these ideas a go yourself!
