Kylie Bertucci's Monthly International Blog Highlights October 2022

Welcome to Kylie Bertucci's Monthly International Blog Highlights for October and I am so happy to be participating in this blog hop again. You will have the opportunity to visit with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their projects and ideas to help inspire you to create your own beautiful Thank You cards. 
Fall is in the air here in Colorado and the leaves are beginning to change. This was my inspiration for my card design today and I tried my best to capture the wonderful colors that I see all around me. I chose to use the Soft Seedlings stamp set from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog and paired it with the Leaf Labels & Amber Gem Combo Pack to create a beautiful Fall Thank You card.

This beautiful Fall card features a fun technique using Sponge Daubers and ink pads to create the wonderful variations in color for the leaves. I inked up the leaf images first with Crushed Curry Classic ink and then I added Old Olive ink to the stems, Pumpkin Pie to the tips of the smaller leaves and the edges of the large leaves and finally a slight touch of Cherry Cobbler to the outer edges of the large leaves. These stamps are DistInktive stamps, so they have wonderful detail that gives them a realistic look. For the background, I stamped the splatter image from the Nature's Prints stamp set, using Crumb Cake Classic ink, making sure to stamp off once on a scrap piece of paper for a more muted look. For the sentiment label, I embossed one of the Leaf Labels with the sentiment from the Nature's Prints stamp set, using Gold embossing powder. I sponged the edges of the leaf die cut with Crumb Cake ink to give it more depth and dimension. To create the card design, I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread twice around the center of the stamped card front and tied a bow on the right side. I attached the leaf label to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up over the Linen Thread. To complete the card, I added several of the Amber Gems to the sentiment leaf and card front for a touch of bling. I just love how these warm colors blend together to create a beautiful Fall design.
