Hi Creative Friends,
Now that it is September, we are on the cusp of Autumn. To celebrate this beautiful season, Dana Kirby, our friend, and awesome card maker is sharing a couple of card designs that are just splendid! She is using the brand new Autumn Hues stamp, die, and stencil set by Concord & 9th.
Hi Friends and Happy Monday!! It’s Dana here today and I am excited to be back sharing two cards that use the Autumn Hues set from Concord & 9th.
I started both of my cards by using the Autumn Hues Turnabout Stencils to make my card panels. The stencils are 6×6, so I cut my white cardstock the same size to make it easy to keep everything lined up. I knew if the stencil lined up with the edge of my cardstock, at each turn, everything would line up perfectly. So fun and easy to use! I used Sweet Blush, Terracotta Tile, Simply Chartreuse, and Ocean Tides ink for my blending.
Next, I used the Autumn Hue stamp and die set to create my sentiment. I stamped my sentiment with Ocean Tides ink and then die-cut the frame. I die-cut a second frame from Terracotta Tile cardstock and offset it behind the sentiment for some added interest. Lastly, I tucked in a few die-cut leaves behind the sentiment and added a few clear sequins as a final touch.
For my next card, I used the second stencil included in the Autumn Hues Turnabout Stencil Set to create a wreath. Just like above, I turned the stencil four times changing my ink color at each turn, to create the wreath.
To finish my card, I again used the Autumn Hues set to stamp my sentiment. Lastly, I attached both panels to Kraft card bases to finish my cards.
I love how quick and easy these turnabout stencils are to use. The color combinations are endless and I know you will love using them. I hope I inspired you to give them a try.
Enjoy your day,
