Fall is my favorite season. There are so many reasons why: football, hoodies, vibrant leaves, crisp air, and pumpkin spice everything! In honor of the changing of the seasons, I’ve made a couple of fall projects to share.
This first card uses the Four Feathers Stamp Set with the coordinating Feather Framelits Dies. One of my favorite techniques is to “faux watercolor.” To achieve this look, ink your stamp and mist the surface of the inked stamp with water in a Stampin’ Spritzer. Mist a few times, or until you can see small puddles forming. Then stamp on Watercolor Paper. If you want more bleed, you can mist the paper directly. This is such a simple way to achieve an artistic, watercolor look.
The second project I created is a little fall wreath stamped on a Mini Muslin bag. To darken the Hello Honey ink, it was necessary to stamp the wreath image more than once. Thankfully, this part is easy with photopolymer stamps. I added the second wreath image using Cajun Craze ink. To prevent the ink from smearing, I heat set it using an iron. (When ironing, I always use a piece of copy paper or fabric over my stamped bag to protect it.)
To add a little sparkle to this treat bag, add a tiny amount of Crystal Effects to a few of the leaves and sprinkle gold glitter on the bag. Shake to remove excess. This bag is a fun and easy way to give a small gift or treat for fall.
What inspires you this fall season?
