I made my own Fall Ink Pad, you can too!

Hey Guys!

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:

See how the leaves are THREE different colors! That’s my own Fall ink pad!
My own Fall ink pad was used for the inside too!

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!

My own Fall ink pad made from an OLD Versamark pad!

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!

For a different fall project that I made a few years ago, click here!

As always here are the specifics for this card:
Stamps:
Life is Beautiful
Inks:
Bumble Bee
Cinnamon Cider
Cherry Cobbler re-inker
Just Jade re-inker
Bumble Bee re-inker
OLD Versamark pad (you can use new!)
Paper:
Bumble Bee 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ (scored at 4 1/4″), 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
Cinnamon Cider 5 1/4″ x 4″ (x2)
Very Vanilla 5″ x 3 3/4″ (x2), scrap for sentiment
Misc:
Holiday Rhinestones
Stamping Sponges
Dimensionals
Tasteful Labels Dies
Bumble Bee Gingham ribbon

As you know, all the supplies will be listed below in picture form. Consequently if you click on any of them you will be taken to my OnLine Store, for every purchase at or above $35 you will get from me 16 projects in a pdf with pictures and step by step instructions!

Sneak Peek for projects you will get in your pdf!

To summarize, I am a ‘give the facts and be done’ kind of girl, so I will let you go for now, check back in next week for a new card/video! If you want to know when I post, subscribe and you can also receive a Newsletter from me by subscribing to that too! Thanks for stopping by and supporting me!

How to copy a card and make it your own.

Hey Guys!,

First off, I got this idea from the Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up! I like to get ideas and then change them up to make them my own design. Next, we will take a walk through my thought process! As usual, here is a video showing you how to make this card. Finally, this card on page 43 is the card I wanted to make my own:

The card on the right is the one I am going to make into my own design!

Generally, when looking for a project to do, I first look in Pinterest, but this time I looked at the SU! catalog! Consequently it ended up being an awesome place to get an idea! Furthermore, I wanted to use the In The Pines Bundle and this would work with an idea I had in my head. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the circle that is on the card above. However, I did have the die from the Painted Labels that let me cut out a circle design that would take it’s place! Also, I wanted to use the trees singularly from the stamp set but die cut to have more detail. Likewise, instead of the ribbon that comes out the side of the circle I used gold foil cut into two strips. By the way, I DID use the acorns for my card, here is what I made:

I replaced some things to make this design my own creation!

Usually, I like to have layers on my cards and this time is no exception! Likewise, I love to sponge the edges of my cards and I did that with Crumb Cake and then Early Espresso to add a dark edge that makes the card pop! As a rule, I like to have my insides go with the front using the same layers, this (to me) seems to make the card look more professional.

Notice how the inside mirrors the front?

Finally, here are the details for this card:

Stamps:
In the Pines Bundle
For Unto Us
Inks:
Crumb Cake
Early Espresso
Old Olive
Paper:
Crumb Cake 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", 5" x 3 3/4" (x2)

As always, below will be the same supplies listed in picture form, click on any of them to be taken to my On Line Store! Subsequently, any purchase over $35 you will get from me a PDF with 16 project ideas that include pictures and step by step instructions! So then, this is a thank you from me!

Before I go, I wanted to tell you that I have another card that you can see here that I took from the catalog and made it my own (see page 38). As you can see I like to get ideas and then change them up to make them my own design.

In Conclusion, thank you so much for coming to visit me! Together, we can make things we see into our creations!
