Today I am going to show you how I made my own Fall ink pad so that leaves on my tree look natural, when I am done you’ll be able to also!! Of course, I made a video you can go here if you would like to SEE how I made it! Naturally, I tend to look at pictures and if I have questions a video helps me out a lot. As an example, here is a picture of my card:
So, how did I make my fall ink pad? To begin with I had a dirty, yucky Versamark pad that I never used and thought of chucking it in the trash……but no, I could make my own Fall ink pad so my tree will look gorgeous AND match the colors I was using for this card!
Since I wanted the colors to match my card I used Bumble Bee, Cherry Cobbler and for the green I went with Just Jade. Already I knew that I wanted to use the Holiday Rhinestones and those used Cherry Cobbler for the red, and a yellow that looked a lot like Bumble Bee but the green was Shaded Spruce so I went with a lighter shade of color and used Just Jade instead. It’s funny how I go about figuring out which colors I use in my crafting, this time it was all about the Rhinestones……gotta have that BLING!

Last Friday, I had my Catalog Launch Party and I had two Prizes that those who attended could win!
The first one uses the Birthday Delivery bundle! LOVE this bundle, it is so much fun to play with! Did you know that the thinlits not only fit the STAMPED images, but also fits the images on the Designer Series Paper (aka DSP)?! It’s so versatile and you KNOW I love to get more from my stamping dollars!
I LOVE how the Chef has his can that will spray out the words “It’s your big day!” Isn’t that so cute! The balloons are fun to add, I had to ‘fussy cut’ the bear but it was super simple. I’m sorry to say that I gave this away BEFORE I measured it! I ‘think’ it was 8″ x 10″. I made it on Thursday and I had a winner for it on Friday! For the grass I sponged using Old Olive with a mask giving it that great wavy look!
For my other Prize I did a take on a card I made in another post:
I loved how this came out, and decided to see how it would look framed with all the seasons! I have to admit I was soooooo excited when I was done, and a little disappointed that I had to GIVE IT AWAY! LOL I used Dazzling Diamonds to make the water sparkle, especially on the winter one to make the water look icy! Here is a closer look at each Season:
The water is icy and the chair is sparkly with Dazzling Diamonds!
The trees are just budding with leaves and the Chair is in Pristine condition!
Summer time! The sun is shining! The blooms are out! The chair is a ‘little’ dirty, but we have that iced drink so we don’t care!!
Fall is here! The leaves are changing! The chair is almost ready to be cleaned for the end of the season!
Here is the full view! Notice the Dazzling Diamonds background paper? The measurements for this beauty is 11″ x 14″………..which is why I had to add the strips of Bermuda Bay. Can’t have a place that has a seam! There’s only ONE seam, but for symmetry I put two strips in!
For this Colorful Seasons framed art, I took off with the given name of the set……..Colorful SEASONS! I chose to make four scenes but having the scene stay the same but change it up to see the Seasons! I had a blast making this! I used Lovely as a Tree to be my backdrop, and the best thing is that you can make this stamp set look different just by using markers!
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper #135315, 12″ x 11″ and 12″ x 2″
Bermuda Bay ( Brights Cardstock pack) #145409, 1/2″ x 11″ x’s 2
Basic Black #124267, 12″ x 9″
Bermuda Bay (see # above), 11 3/4″ x 8 3/4″
Pool Party (Winter) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Pink Pirouette (Spring) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Berry Burst (Summer) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Cherry Cobbler (Fall) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
All Seasons are on Whisper White cardstock 4″ x 5 1/4″, ‘frame’ is Pool Party 5 1/4″ x 4″ with a 1/2″ cut out on inside all around.
Water is Soft Sky and Bermuda Bay for all seasons except winter which is Soft Sky and Whisper White.
Trees are colored with markers: Tree trunk is all Early Espresso, Leaves are Old Olive (spring and summer), Fall is Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry.
For the water I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to make the water sparkle with Dazzling Diamonds on top.
For the winter tree branch thinlit I used the White Gel pen (retired) to make snow on the top, with Dazzling Diamonds over it to make the branches be snowy!
That’s it for the Dimensions!
I hope you like this post! This took me a couple days to create but only because I had to think it up! Once started, it took a couple of hours.
I will be making one for myself as soon as I am able! I will probably take this to the winner on Monday so will have to make one before then, just in case I need a life size reference!!
