Autumn Days - Give Thanks


I'm busy working on the cards for my October Classes. 
Here is the first of three. 
This one was a little time consuming but so much fun to make. All products used are from Fun Stampers Journey.



The card base is Butter Cream and the next layer is Pumpkin Bread.

The background was made using the exclusive FSJ 8.5 x 11 size Gel Press, using Liquid colors of Lemon Drop, Limeade Splash and Rich Coral. I brayered those colors and then used the Falling Petals stencil on top. 

I then took what inks were still on the brayer and ran it across the Playful Leaves Background Stamp and applied that on top. 

I stamped Give Thanks from the Bountiful Thanks Stamp Set with Cocoa Powder Ink then clear detail embossing powder.
I added some Gold Silk over all.

The leaves were stamped with the Clear Pigment Ink and then colored with Pan Pastels and fussy cut. There is a matching die set for the leaves, but I LOVE to cut buy hand.

I attached a piece of the corrugated paper with the Pumpkin Patch Ribbon on top. I popped up the leaves and added a bow made from the Pumpkin Patch Ribbon.

I then used the Detailed Foliage Die and Gold Mirror paper to add a little more fun detail. 

Gel Press, Brayer, stencil, and PanPastels used on this cad, are all on sale at 20% off until the end of September.
