What can I say? I’m in love with Heartfelt Creations! This was a new company to me and I must say I am so impressed. The stamps in the Gateway to the Seasons Collection are gorgeous! They stamp so clean and crisp enabling you to do a multitude of coloring and cutting or to simply emboss. I’m going to share each way with you.
My first card I cut the aperture with Spellbinders Superellipse die. I decided to color the stamped image with my Copics, now keep in mind, I am NOT a Copic color expert, I’m more the colorbook kinda gal. But I had fun, and isn’t that what crafting is all about? Having fun doing things you love? I colored the image and then fussy cut around the top edge, even adding a few additional layers on the corn silks, the brick etc. I then used Distress Ink on another mat to create a blue sky and layered them together.
On the following cards I cut a mat for the front running it through my Cuttlebug with the Spellbinders Celtic Weave embossing folder. After lining it up with the front of the card I cut an aperture with the Spellbinders Labels Thirty-one. I decided to try embossing the inside image with Clear embossing powder and using Tim Holtz Distress Inks to bring out the design. You want to be sure and wipe away any ink that gets on your embossing, I use baby wipes they seem to work perfectly for the job!
On all three cards I used seam binding dyed to match the cards. I tied three fall colors together and on two of the cards I added the word Fall cut from the Spellbinders Font One. By using some Forest Moss Distress ink and a layer of Glossy Accents it’s a great little tuck in to add above the ribbons.
I’m including my video so you can see step by step how I made the card and hopefully I’ll inspire you to try the Heartfelt Creations Gateway to the Seasons collection and make someone you know a gorgeous Fall card.
Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
