Welcome to another Stamp Off Challenge with Jackie, Buffy and me. This week our challenge is to use the Colors Of Fall. I actually made three cards using the Colors Of Fall. I wrote an entire blog post for this challenge and then I changed my mind and decided to use this card that I made with the gorgeous Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper. If you don’t have this paper, you need to get it. It is in the 2021 July – December Mini Catalog. The paper uses the colors Blackberry Bliss, Cinnamon Cider and gold foil. It is just beautiful! You can click on the link below to see a close up of it.
Here is the card I made:
This card was very simple to make but I think it is very elegant. I first adhered a piece of the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss card base. After that I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set called Peaceful Moments using Versamark Ink. I embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder and my Heat Tool. One trick I learned is if you heat the embossing powder from behind it does not warp the card stock as much but still melts the powder perfectly. I repeated that step two more times in order to make the sentiment stand out more. It is really easy to stamp something a few times in the same position using a Stamparatus because if you put the card stock in the same place each time, the sentiment will stamp in the same place.
After embossing the sentiment three times I cut it out using a die from Tailor Made Tags. This die set cuts out eight different sized tags in two different designs. I cut out the feather from the die set called Nature’s Thoughts in Gold Foil and adhered it to the tag using Stampin Dimensionals. Then I tied a piece of gold Baker’s Twine (retired) and adhered the tag to the card.
