Here is this month's inspirational photo:
and here is my inspirational card...
I used Die-Namites' Pear Tree Die
Other Supplies used
Thankful Stamp Set (Pink and Main)
Cardstock ( Bazzill Basics)
Patterned Paper (My Mind's Eye)
VersaFine Onyx Black (Tsukineko)
Martha Stewart Deluxe Trimmer
Martha Stewart Scoring Board
Sharpies- orange, green, brown, red
PITT Artist Pen XS (Faber-Castell)
Diamond Glaze (Judikins)
Blue Painter's Tape
2Way Glue Pen (EK Success)
I started off by cutting a 4.5"x11" piece of cardstock and scoring it at the 5.5" and folding it in half creating an A2 sized card base. I also cut a 4"x5.25" piece of cardstock and a 3.75"x5" piece of patterned paper to use as mats and ran them through my Xyron Creative Station.
I pieced together my card and mats. Then taped off the edges using painters tape. I airbrushed a circle of orange and yellow to the center of my card using my ebrush machine with orange and yellow Sharpies.
I used my Die-Namites Pear Tree and cut 4 trees from cardstock and glued them together using a glue pen.
Then I ebrushed my tree using brown, green, orange, and red Sharpies. I added details using a PITT Arist Pen and Diamond Glaze on the pears and bird. I used Diamond Glaze to adhere my tree onto my card.
Then stamped my sentiment under the tree using a Versafine Onyx Black ink pad. I used Pink and Main's "Thankful" stamp set for the "Autumn Blessings sentiment.
Here is my finished card:
I stayed with the warm autumn colors that reminded me a lot of a sunset... I love golden sunsets!! And, I love how this card turned out. It was a simple, yet elegant. A card that I could easily replicate multiples of.
This is such a gorgeous die and I didn't want to spoil it by adding too much fluff and frill, so I kept it simple. I just added warm bold colors and a bit of hemp twine bow to give it an organic feel.
Happy Fall Y'all!!
Hope you enjoyed my inspirational project!
