Stamp Ink Paper: Colors of Thanksgiving #71


I can’t get over how stinkin’ cute the Halloween Cookie Cutter stamp set is.  I have used this set more than any new set from the Holiday catalog.  The set can be purchased in a bundle (link below) and I guarantee it’s going to become one of those highly sought after punch and sets after it’s retired.  However, this card was made for the Stamp Ink Paper Color Challenge.

Stamp Ink Paper

I love these colors for the challenge this week?  Why?  Because they are so different and they remind me of the crisp cool colors of Fall leaves.  They remind me of when I lived in New Jersey.  Isn’t it so awesome how three colors take you back in time and sparks a memory that makes you miss the East Coast?


The Details:

  • Watercolored Made Easy.  Ever since Stampin’ Up! removed the Blendabilities from its inventory (due to production issues) I have missed using a coloring pen that is easy to blend.  Watercoloring has always intimidated me and I told myself to stop being a cry-baby and just use it!  So I did!  The trick to fading is to continue to color even after the color seems to have faded. The best thing about it is that it doesn’t have to be perfect.  Now, I can’t stop watercoloring because it truly is so easy!!!
  • Ombre Look Without Reinking.  To give the sentiment an ombre look I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the stamping to line up perfectly.  After making sure it had a good amount of ink on the rubber I simply continued to stamp until the ink faded.  I think I can safely say continuous stamping to create an ombre look is a no brainer.

A Spanish Thanksgiving with Mojo Monday

Fall.  A time to post and show all the different colors of coordinating card stock that go beautifully with the designer series paper.  It’s my favorite time of year because of all deep rich colors that come with the crisp air with the coming of Winter.  I grew up in sunny Southern California, but my favorite time of year is Fall and Winter.  I must’ve been a native of Alaska in a previous life… LoL.

As most of you know, I truly enjoy participating in card sketch challenges because it allows me to grow my imagination and a chance to win a blog badge.  It’s a stampers prized possession… LoL.  This card was made for the Mojo Monday 266 challeng.  Let me know what you think of it by leaving a comment.

To create my lovely Fall card I used the Spanish Teeny Tiny Wishes, punched out a 1″ circle to compliment the 1 3/4 scallop circle, and added a the little flower stamp from the Tiny Tags stamp collection.  The Orchard Harvest designer series paper is perfect for making Fall cards.  I know you will love it as much as I did.
