I am back today with a Fall card I made keeping in mind all the fantastic Autumn themed challenges this week. All products used are from Lawn Fawn.
I started with stamping the images from the Happy Harvest stamp set, coloured them with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies. The colour theme was inspired by Pippichallenge3 (my favourite Hungarian crafty shop!).
Then I die cut some small stitched leaves from Lawn Fawn cardstock scraps in matching colours: Schoolhouse, Raspberry and Peacock.
The sentiment is a die cut too.
Assembling the card was easy, his time I adhered everything flat on a piece of light grey cardstock and a pretty patterned paper from the Fall Fling paper pad.
As a finishing touch I used glossy accents on the stems,beaks and the scarecrow itself. A little bit of twine I wrapped around the card on the top as embellishment.
Then I heat embossed with gold embossing powder a sentiment from the same set on white cardstock and cut it out with one of the dies from the Thin Fishtail banners set.
I chose patterned papers from the Pumpkin Spice paper pad, one to cover the card front and the other to hold my coffee mugs. I gave this a lime green mat to harmonize with the green on the cups.
After popping up the coffee cups and the cupcake with 3D foam squares, I felt the need for another pumpkin. I found a smiling one in the Seasons of change stamp set.
When the card was all assembled I used a clear shimmer pen on the foams and added glossy accents on the pumpkins, topping and the straw. I love how it makes them super special.

I started with die cutting the Quilt Square 2 die first from kraft cardstock and then from Green Glitter sheet. I layered the frames on top of each other and adhered them to a white top folding notecard.
Then I inserted the stitched panels from the kraft cardstock and added a bit of colour the leaf using Copic markers. I used green and yellow shades.
I covered the holes with glossy accent, which took long to dry but it was all worth the waiting: the result is a shiny bright leaf looking like glass. So pretty. I need to try to do this technique on thick acetate too.
After it was all dry, I heat embossed a sentiment from the Fall sentiments stamp set on the bottom with Antique Gold embossing powder from Simon Says Stamp. If you feel your card is warped tiny thanks to the big amount of glossy accents, put it under heavy books for a night and it will flatten it out.
I hope you liked today’s inspiration and you will pop in again soon for more!
It is Zsofi here with you today with my last post for LDRS Creative as a Design Team member. I am so grateful to Angie for having me and to the wonderful ladies on the team who were cheering me for the last year. This card is to all of you, with all my heart!
I started with die cutting the Down Main Street die 2 times from heavy weight white cardstock and adhered them together.
Then I cut the beautiful snowflake patterned paper from the Christmas Cottage Paper Pad to be 2 and 3/4 inches by 5 and a half inches. I embellished it with silver glitter cardstock on the longer edges and adhered it to a white note card.
Newton’s Nook Designs and WOW embossing powders are collaborating all week long to offer you inspiration using their products together! Both design teams will be sharing fun ways to use embossing powders on your projects using WOW embossing powders paired with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps! Here are my Fall themed projects:
I started with die cutting the leaves from the Autumn Leaves die set from white cardstock and covered them with Versamark ink.
I heat embossed each leaf with different embossing powders from the WOW Bursting with Colour set (Sunburst, Lavaburst and Berryburst). I repeated it twice. I love the texture on those leaves! The colours are gorgeous!
I adhered them to a kraft rectangle on which I heat embossed the sentiment from the Thankful thoughts stamp set. I used WOW Metallic Platinum embossing powder for this, it looks so pretty on kraft!
To keep the design simple I chose some golden foiled patterned paper from my stash and added a bit of brown twine (Lawn Fawn) on the top.
On my second card I used the same Autumn leaves just wanted to make them look like metal charms.
So for heat embossing I chose WOW Metallic Platinum, Caramel Macchiato and Metallic Gold sparkle embossing powders, and just as for the previous card, I repeated the embossing 2 times tor a thicker and smoother look.
The sentiment is heat embossed on a dark brown flag with WOW Metallic Platinum embossing powder.
For the background I used the Quilted Backdrop die from Lawn Fawn and cut it from kraft cardstock. The card base is kraft too, so it gives a pretty tone on tone textured look. I added a rounded rectangle (Frames and flags die set) die cut from brown plaid pattered paper (Lawn Fawn) and assembled the card.
The only extra finishing touch was a drop of glossy accents on the nose and the stem.

The best competition for cardmakers is the Card Design Superstar contest organised by My Favorite Things. I wish it came a week later or I had more time, I would love to compete in all categories. But I managed only one, Clean and Simple Genius.
For my card I stamped the cutest puppy ever from the BB Happy Pawlidays set and coloured him with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut him out.
Then I worked on the winter background: I added blue and purple shades of alcohol inks on Yupo paper and blew them to move and mix. I set it aside to dry. When it was all dry I applied White Glitz glitter gel through the card sized star confetti stencil.
Until it was drying I looked for the perfect tag die and I found it among the Tag Builder Blueprints 4 set and cut 3 from white cardstock. When the alcohol inked background was dry I cut it with the same die and stacked them together.
I white heat embossed a small sentiment on the top of the tag and popped up the dog with 3D foam squares. On a white notecard I adhered 2 thin strips of white glitter cardstock to make it more festive.
I used white ribbon and white twine on the tag and mounted it on the card base. A little clear shimmer on the cap and glossy accents on the nose and light bulbs finished it off.
I wish you like my card for the contest and will come back tomorrow for more inspiration.
Although we do not celebrate Halloween I love to make Halloween cards and I could not let the first Hello Bluebird IG Challenge pass without making a card for it.
I stamped and coloured a bunch of images from the Halloween Party stamp set. I used Copic markers and cut everything out with the coordinating dies.
I had a pretty purplish alcohol inked background which I made earlier and I felt it will be perfect for a spooky scene. I used the Gallery Frame #4 die to create a black frame, I cut it 3 times and stacked them together for dimension.
I also cut some grass from dark grey cardstock using a die from the Pond Builder die set. The outside edge I cut from patterned paper (Taylored Expressions Rainbow Brights)
I assembled the scene on a black card base. I die cut the word Magical from green glitter cardstock (Magical Sparkle die) and stamped the rest of the sentiment from the Sparkles script stamp set using Staz-on White ink.
I added a bit of clear shimmer to the witch hat, collar and the lantern and used a black glaze pen on the eyes of the critters to make them pop. I added glossy accents on some details and my cute little scene was finished.
I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and you will come back tomorrow for more!
I started with stamping the witch-bunny from the Less tricks set on alcohol ink friendly cardstock and coloured it with my Copic markers. I used the coordinating die to cut it out! I love how it rounds the edges, so pretty!
Then I created a simple ink blended sky using Distress Oxide inks: Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, Faded Jeans and a bit of Black Soot. I added white pain splatters and dried it with a heat tool. Then I also added some shimmer mist and when it was dried I went back with some black soot splatters too. it would have been pretty without it too, but I enjoy building up texture.
I made sure it was all dry before I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powders. Then I stamped a bunch of stars from the same set with Versamark ink and used WOW Metallic Silver sparkle embossing powder on them.
I added thin trips of Silver Glitter cardstock on the edges of my panel and matted it with black cardstock before adhering it to a top folding white notecard. Then I popped up the bunny with 3D foam squares and embellished it with glossy accents on the stars of its gown and on the mask. Isn’t it adorable?
I hope you enjoyed today’s sneak peek and will check back later for more. All new products will be available on 20/09!
This week Newton’s Nook Designs and Therm O Web are partnering for fabulous Fall, Halloween and Christmas inspiration! All week long both design teams will be sharing ways to use Therm O Web products with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps!
I will not reveal a secret if I admit how much I love both companies and playing with texture on my cards. I could not stop creating backgrounds with flock, foils and glitter paste. All the gorgeous stencils Newton’s Nook Designs offer got a whole new life!
I started with the background: on gout grey cardstock I applied Transfer gel through the Tree Rings stencil. I let it completely dry, then added white flock with the help of my laminator. That moment of removing the backing sheet is indescribable! Magical really! The flock has a very soft touch and it is not bright white rather has like a tone-on-tone look.
The sentiment is from Newton’s Pumpkin Patch. I stamped with Versamark ink on black cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder.
A few gold crystals from Studio Katia, a bit of clear shimmer on the pumpkin carvings and drops of glossy accents on the stems made it complete.
For my second card I created an ink blended background using Distress Oxide inks (Black Soot – Faded Jeans – Seedless Preserves) which I distressed with water. Then I applied again Transfer Gel through the Flying bats stencil and let it dry. After a long hour I used black flock and the laminator to apply it on the stenciled background.
I cut the panel down with a rounded rectangle die from Frames and Flags, matted it with black and purple glitter cardstock. I also die cut a dark blue postage stamps mat from Frameworks.
The white heat embossed sentiment and the kitty are from Newton’s Boo-tiful night, just this time I used watercolour markers and fussy cut the image.
To make it stand out more, I used 3D foam squares.
I could not let the day pass without some foiling when I had my laminator out. I applied Passionate pink deco foil on a striped toner paper (Gina K Designs Foil mates Stars and Stripes) with the help of a laminator. I die cut it with a scalloped rectangle die from Frames and Fags.
I also die cut a piece of vellum with the rounded rectangle die from the same die set and the sentiment (Holiday greetings) and pine branches (Pine and Holly) from green glitter cardstock (Lawn Fawn).
The sloth is from the Slothy Christmas stamp set coloured with Copic markers but I used a grey pencil to add some furry details. I used its coordinating die to cut it out.
After assembling the card I felt I needed a bow. So I took a tiny scrap of white cardstock, covered it with Stick it double sided adhesive and stuck the pink foil on it. I burnished it with a bone folder and die cut it with the small bow die from Pine and holly. I used a silver crystal as embellishment.
I saved my favourite for last: a cute winter scene in the woods.
I created a Distress Oxide background with blue tones and applied white Glitz Glitter gel over the Petite snow stencil. I set it aside to dry.
While it was drying I stamped and coloured 2 of the foxes and some pine trees from the Fox Hollow stamp set. I used Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I also die cut a white scalloped rectangle as a mat and snowbank from white flock using a Land border die.
I white heat embossed the sentiment on a little kraft banner (Frames and flags) and assembled the scene on a kraft card base.
I added some details with a white gel pen and used a black glaze pen on the noses of the foxes.
There are more amazing projects today over on the Therm O Web blog so pop over there for more inspiration!
It is Zsofi here with a very clean and simple holiday card made with gorgeous patterned paper from the new release. Christmas Cottage has amazing designs and i wanted the florals to be in the spotlight.
I cut down the patterned paper a bit and matted it with red cardstock. I love layers on my cards.
