DIY Fall Leaves Embroidery Hoop Using Stamped Images

Hello crafty friends! This is Nathalie guesting this month on the blog and I am super excited about the project I am sharing with you today!

Earlier this year I picked up a new hobby which is hand embroidery. Up until now, I was purchasing patterns online created by other artists but as soon as I received the Right at Home Fall Leaves stamp set, I knew I wanted to use it to create an embroidery project!

After doing a quick test of my design on paper, I stamped directly on fabric (a natural linen) with regular Versa ink. Here is a look, in the hoop, before the stitching began:

It took me quite a while to pick colors and types of stitches but once the decisions were made I didn't stop until I was done and I LOVE the result!

Who knew you could make pretty embroidered wall art with Right at Home stamps?! It was a first for me and it definitely won't be the last time I use this technique!

If you're inspired to make your own and would like more information on the type of stitches or colors I used, or you're just in need of help, I will be happy to respond to anyone contacting me via my Instagram account: @anounceofcreativity

Thank you Nicole for inviting me to play with your fabulous stamps and dies! I had a lot of fun with them!

Harvest Blessings Fall Leaves Cards by Nathalie

Hi! Nathalie (aka AnOunceofCreativity) here again! Today, I will share two card projects I have created using the Be Thankful stamp set and Fall Leaves.

My first card was inspired by the fabulous Fall Leaves Die Set:

I cut the same leaf shape twice, once in patterned paper and once in vellum, using the negative of the patterned paper as (raised) background over my yellow card base. I also cut an acorn out of cardstock for added contrast. I like clean designs but I often add and mix textures. That is my purpose with the enamel dots, stitched outline, string bow and ribbon banner.

To finish off, I stamped a sentiment from the new Be Thankful stamp set directly on the background. I love the mix of fonts and the size of this sentiment and I even used it again on my second card.

This second card was inspired by the Fall Leaves stamp set. I loved the small leaves and berries in this set and really wanted to show off their design. I masked and sprayed white cardstock with two different warm fall colors and stamped three clusters of leaves and berries on the edges.

I am planning on sending these to family for Thanksgiving and I hope to have inspired you to do the same!

Thank you for stopping by!

Holidays are on the Way Scene Cards Using Distress Oxide Inks by Nicole

Hi, friends!

Can I just say "brrrrr"? I know in my last post I was saying that in MA we were just on the cusp of cold weather...well, it has fully set in now and I am oh, so happy. Bring on the boots and comfy sweaters!

And after I'm all bundled up and warm I think I'll hop into one of these cars on today's cards. Aren't they just too cute?! Let me show you how I made them!

You may recognize the card with the red car from last week's Fall Seasonal Wreath Cards post. I explained my entire process in that post, but wanted to make sure to include it today as it uses the Holidays are on the Way Die Set.

I switched up the scene for my second card in a couple different ways: I changed the orientation to vertical and decided to create a winter scene instead. I started by creating my background with the My Favorite Things Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink. This piece acts as the perfect backdrop for my scene.

On top I created a snow bank using a border die with some stitching. I love how it creates the look of snow piles. To ground the scene, I added three trees created from the same die set that I inked with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Ink and Vintage Photo for the stumps. 

For the car I used Peacock Feathers for the body and Iced Spruce for the accents and wheels. I added some vellum behind the windows to look like glass. At this point I knew I was going to add my sentiment up in the clouds, but I still wanted a bit more color...

...that's when I decided to bring in some of the poinsettias and leaves from the die set to help break up the white space. I inked the flowers in Candied Apple and the one leaf in Lucky Clover. For the centers I used some Nuvo Drops. I also added some of the White Blizzard Nuvo Drops along the tree branches and car to look like freshly fallen snow. 

You can see how I assemble the car and some of the other elements included in the die set in the how to video below!

And that finishes up my Holidays are on the Way scene cards! I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at these and leave inspired. I rarely create cards using solely die cuts so these were a bit out of my comfort zone...but I love the result! 

Let me know which card is your favorite in the comments...and what other types of cards you want to see from me!

Happy Monday!

Nicole
