We had created a few fall cards to share with you today but first, we want to make a difference and help victims of Hurricane Dorian. You can't help but feel like it's so overwhelming but we love this crafty community and we know together, we can make a difference!
All sales this weekend 9/13-9/15 we will be giving 100% of our net profits to a Hurricane Relief Fund.
We are also doing a GIVEAWAY and all orders will get our Flamingo Die included in their order. The flamingo is their national bird and thought it was appropriate!
We can't wait to help!
We love everything about fall! And especially the colors. Here are a few cards using some of our stamps that we could use all year long but just changing the colors and combinations, can easily give a fall feel.
We are all about a fun texture background. It's just a fast simple way to make a card look like so much more without all the fuss. All 3 cards have a different background. Stencils are one of those ways to create a quick pattern.
I used our thin stripe stencil for the diagonal pattern. I love Fresh Ink inks and for fall I've been using Mango, Grapefruit, Tangerine and Persimmon.
As you can see from the picture, I have 2 ways to add watercolor to the die cut flowers and leaves. Sometimes I will die cut and then color and sometimes I create a watercolor background and then die cut. I feel like when you add color after you've die cut, you definitely have more control with the color and the intensity. Products used: thin stripe stencil, woodland flower die cut, octagon greenhouse die, and spring floral cluster die.
Our glass dome die is a die from the very beginning when we first launched Flora & Fauna. There are so many options for this die. You can even cut the top off and just use the base as a cake plate option. For this card, I die cut it again with watercolor paper and added watercolor to the glass part and stamped Hello Autumn using our new mini coffee set.
a little piece of flower from the spring floral cluster die set.
This texture set is one of my favorites! I especially love the long chains that you can use to create a festive banner across the card.
A card like this is all about the color combination that you use. For this card, I used the Fresh Ink colors: grapefruit, persimmon and mango. LOVE! You could use any word die for this card. I happened to use our party banner die.
Happy Fall and have a great weekend!
