Hi all! Kristina Werner here. Have you all seen the November 2018 Card Kit? It’s packed with fun autumn themed products and stamps. Today I thought I’d show you an easy and simple, colorful stamped card using the stamp set in the kit, Thanks and Leaves.
I first stamped a couple of the greetings from the stamp set and heat embossed them using gold embossing powder. Then, I stamped the leaves from the stamp set around the greetings, starting from the bottom. I changed colors of ink multiple times in order to create bands of color moving up the card.
The five Distress Oxide inks I used are:
- Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink
- Forest Moss Distress Oxide Ink
- Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink
- Rusty Hinge Distress Oxide Ink
- Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink
I then adhered the stamped piece to a 7×5 card base made out of Desert Storm cardstock.
