I love when I can use a stamp set for more than one occasion. I thought I’d share some different ways to use Fall Fest throughout the fall season . . . and beyond!
First of all, here’s a card to show your gratitude. For the pumpkins, I used a rock and roll technique with three ink colors (Cajun Craze, Hello Honey, and Pumpkin Pie), then spritzed water on the stamp before stamping on Watercolor Paper. Then, I used the coordinating Framelits set to cut out each image. I used the same faux watercolor technique on the leaves using Mossy Meadow ink. I can’t seem to get enough of this technique. It never looks the same twice and that’s what I love about it—it’s one of a kind!
Now, let’s get you ready for Halloween. Using the jack-o-lantern faces, I added a face to my little ghost using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the large White Filter Paper circle. (No cutting required!) I finished it off with a little bit of Basic Black Baker’s Twine—so simple and so cute. This would make a fun classroom treat.
The last project I made was inspired by my home. I love to decorate for the seasons and recently found some blue-green pumpkins that look great in my home. I added some gold accents to dress them up a bit. (I got the blue-green look through a combination of stamping off and rock and roll.) This one took a little bit of trial and error and it never turned out the same twice. Play around with some stamps, ink, and paper to see what you can create!
What is the rock and roll technique?
Thank you, Jen C.
Love these cards. The Fall Fest is so versatile. What set is "Count Your Blessings" from? Thank you for your inspiration.

The little ghosts are ADORABLE!!!
