Color Coordinates: Thanksgiving!
Happy Friday everyone! Welcome back to the blog. I have another Color Coordinates for you completely inspired by Thanksgiving and Fall! I’m finally embracing Autumn… I’ve been avoiding it knowing that cold winter weather will soon follow. But with colors like this, I feel a delicious Thanksgiving meal in my future.
I used the Simon Says Stamp ink colors in Deep Purple, Merlot, Burnt Orange, Dark Chocolate, and Olive (which has been discontinued but Hero Arts Moss is a great substitution). I used my inks and the Tim Holtz Leaf Prints stamps on a panel of Desert Storm cardstock. Once I had my leaves stamped in color, I added a second layer of gold embossed leaves, followed up by a clear embossed layer. This gave me a great amount of texture and additional color.
Once I was done stamping my panel, I used a Stitched Rectangle die to create a window. I added a piece of desert storm cardstock with a single gold embossed leaf and added a die cut Wildflower colored with Copic markers.
I finished my card off by adding a message strip, orange cord and Glossy Accents on the flowers. I’ve shot a video of the process which you can watch below or on our YouTube channel.
