Hello Fall Pumpkin Spice Season Letterboard Card

Hello, November!

Can you believe October is already over?! I was still recovering from how fast September went and, poof, Octobers gone. Ugh, time flies.

Now that fall has officially arrived I decided to make a card inspired by the piles (and piles) of leaves that all around my neighborhood. And one of the sweet girls from Pumpkin Spice Season fit the theme perfectly.

Let’s get started…

To start off, I stamped the girl playing in leaves onto her coordinating die-cut in an alcohol-friendly ink. I used Momento Tuxedo Black. On a separate sheet of paper I stamped dozens of leaves from the set as I knew I would be layering on as much as possible. Next, I got to coloring in all my images using a variety of alcohol-based markers (colors listed at end of post)!

Once I was finished coloring I moved onto my background. I stamped a piece of white A2 sized cardstock with my Woodgrain Background Stamp in a green ink. This time I used My Favorite Things Hyrbid Ink in Factory Green. I wanted to use Catherine Pooler’s Green Tea, but I desperately need to re-ink it! I die-cut that panel using the largest stitched rectangle from my Find the Beauty Die Set.

I also ran through the letterboard from my Letterboard Love Die Set, using some kraft and gray cardstock, and the “hello fall” which is actually included in the Pumpkin Spice Season Die Set. I assembled the letterboard using foam tape on the back and adhered everything on top using both dimensional adhesive and tape runner adhesive.

On this card I really wanted the coloring to be the main focal point which is so, so different for me! But, I think this card turned out adorable.

Watch me create this card in my process video below…

I hope you had a safe Halloween last night and are looking forward to the upcoming holiday season. I know I am!

Snuggly Squirrel Tree Trunk Window Card

Happy fall, y’all!

I know…you haven’t heard from me on here in a while. I’ll try to do an update post soon, but make sure to follow me on Instagram to say up to date.

Anyways, I’m excited to be popping on today to share a card project using several items from the latest Right at Home release! Have you picked up anything yet? If not, I hope this project gives you a bit of inspiration of what to get. *wink wink*

Let’s get started…

Snuggly Squirrel Tree Trunk Window Card // rightathomeshop.com/blog

I started by stamping all of my different elements using a variety of ink colors. First off, I used a few different browns to build my cute squirrel from the Snuggly Squirrel set. For this card I decided to also use the scarf but you can easily leave it off for a different look. I also stamped the little acorn from the set as it nestles into his little paws perfectly. Did you know that the coordinating die set cuts around his paws so you can slip in one of his treats? I love that about this set!

I pulled in a few of the elements from Forest Findings to round out my scene. I stamped the pumpkin and three leaves. Then I got to work on my background or tree trunk, in this case. I double-stamped a piece of A2 white cardstock with my Woodgrain Background Stamp in a light brown ink. This background stamp is quickly becoming one of my new go-tos! I ran the panel through my die-cutting machine with the scallop circle from my Scallop Stitches Die Set and the largest stitched rectangle panel from the Find the Beauty Die Set.

I grabbed a square of Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock for behind the scallop cut-out and inked it up with Distress Oxide ink in Antique Linen. This gives a subtle background for the scene. Next, I stamped a sentiment from Critter Chat onto a banner made from some green cardstock and got to work assembling my card!

To finish off the design, I used a few of the sequins included in our beautiful Falling Leaves Sequin Mix…the colors compliment this card perfectly!
