Hello there! May Flaum here from www.craftwithmay.com and I’m so excited to be visiting here today and sharing two cards created with my 28 Lilac Lane Autumn Afternoon kit. I love to use embellishment kits for all kinds of crafting, however adding sprinkles of fun to my cards is one of my favorite things to do! If you’re worried about bulk simply stick to beads & sequins. Otherwise – run wild!

 

To get started, stamp with black ink your sentiment and images. Color in any stamps – with any pens or watercolors you like.

What I love about this is how simple it is, and how quick it gets you to the best part: embellishing! For this card I cut the white cardstock down to 3 ½ x 4 ¾” and mounted to orange cardstock 4 ¼ x 5 ½” that will become the front of my card.

Once you’ve played around with placement and what things you might like, drop a few little drops of liquid adhesive and add your initial embellishments starting with biggest and working smaller.

This was a lot of fun – I used a favorite Lawn Fawn pumpkin stamp set and it would work well with a wide variety of stamp sets where there are small images and sentiments meant to go together.

I’ve got a second card to share using this same kind of idea, but this time we’ll use the Hero Arts layered tree stamp set. Oh, this one is a favorite!

This time I used Lawn Fawn Dye inks to layer on leaves. This stamp set is so fun – you really can’t mess it up! I kept repeating with various colors from Carrot to Jalapeno and I love the results! After I was done stamping I tore the edges of the white cardstock so I could mount it to a colorful card base, and then it’s embellishment time!
As you can see sometimes one simple small cluster is all you need. I just love how this card turned out – so much detail and yet so simple and a single stamp set and embellishment kit.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this creative play session here with me and my Autumn Afternoon kit. I have so much fun creating with all the kits in my 28 Lilac Lane, though this is a favorite! There are even more kits (and fun goodies!) in stock at the Foiled Fox shop so be sure to check them out. You can find me at www.craftwithmay.com and on Instagram @craftwithmay. Have a great and creative day!
