Hello Crafty Friends. Davina here with a little BRI Moodboard inspired card today. The November colors Amanda chose are very easy to play with. Harvest Yellow, Clay Pink, BlackBerry, and Rich Teal make up the quartet of color this month.
The project I’m sharing today is using a few sets from Paperie Ink. I’m very new to this brand and purchased a few seasonal sets last month. I didn’t have a chance to use them sooner, but I’m so loving how cute these characters are. I combined the stamp sets Autumn is Calling and Happy Holi-yay, along with Lawn Fawns Meadow Backdrop Die. I stamped all of my images with Momento Rich Cocoa ink and copic colored everything using light and dark shades of this months colors.
Since there are no coordinating dies for these stamp sets, I had to use the scan n cut. Which worked fine considering I’m never going to fussy cut this many images. I recommend always cutting out before you color you images. The Scan n cut is notorious for mis-reading an image, and therefore not cutting out properly. As for images like the trees, that have small gaps in the outline, use a pencil to fill in the space for a solid cut. It will read the pencil, along with the ink, and cut out the image cleanly.
Once my images were cut and colored I cut the Meadow Backdrop from some yellow Cardstock and inked the grassy edges with Scattered Straw & Dried Marigold Distress Oxide Inks. Next, I inkblended a pink and purple sky using several colors of Oxide Ink onto white Bristol Smooth Cardstock, then splattered with water, and white and gold ink. Once dry I heat embossed my sentiment onto the sky using Lawn Fawn Gold Embossing Powder.
I assembled my card by glueing the Meadow frame onto my inkblended panel, then adhering the trees and sunflowers behind the grassy layers. I popped my border image up with some narrow foam tape, and added the remainder of my images. I brushed some glittery Clear Wink of Stella onto my lights and pumpkins for a little “razzle dazzle”. I’m so happy with how cute these images are and already ordered a few more sets to build my collection of Paperie Ink stamps.
