Harvest- Fall Paper Crafting Kit

Today we're featuring another card we created with our Harvest paper crafting kit.  It's one of our favorite kits so far.  We hope you love it as much as we do.  You'll find the kit and the Kit Add On in our online store HERE.

To create this card, we stamped the outline image of the leaves, from the stamp set included in the kit, with VersaMark ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  We colored the leaves with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers and blended the color with the ZIG Wink of Stella in clear.  You can find the Wink of Stella pen in our online store HERE.  The Clean Color Real Brush Markers will be added to our online store in October along with embossing powders and VersaMark ink.  We do however, have them in our retail store.  So, contact us if you can't wait.  We'll pull the products you'd like from the store and ship them to you.

We embellished the card with some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.  You'll find them in our online store HERE.

The stitched and scallop pieces were cut with the Blueprints #20 Die-namics die.  You'll find that in our online store HERE.  Here's a look at everything included with that die.

Harvest Paper Crafting Kit

Today we're sharing more projects we created using our Harvest Paper Crafting Kit.  If you'd like to purchase a kit, you can find it in our online store HERE.

This lovely card was created using a resist technique.  We created a watercolor background on watercolor paper using the Distress Inks in the kit.  We featured a quick HOW TO on this technique in a previous blog post.  You can find that post HERE.  After the background was completely dry, we used VersaMark ink and clear embossing powder to create the leaf images onto the watercolored background.  Once we heat embossed the leaf images, we used an ink blending tool to applyVintage Photo Distress Ink over the top of the paper.  Since the leaves were embossed, they resist the brown ink, preserving the original watercolor.

Harvest Paper Crafting Kit

Today we're featuring a couple projects we created using our Harvest Paper Crafting Kit.  You can find this kit in our online store HERE and the Add-on HERE.

After inking the leaf stamp with the Broken China Distress Ink, we added some of the Seedless Preserves Ink to the edges of the leaves.  Stamped them onto watercolor paper and added a little water to the stamped image with a damp brush.

The sentiment is stamped with VersaMark ink onto vellum, and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

We also embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder, onto vellum for the card below.  We added some of the washi tape from the kit to the left side of the card, and used foam tape to lift the patterned paper and sentiment up from the front of the card.  Quick and easy.
