Back in July when I attended Stampin’ Up!’s convention for demonstrators, we made a cute tag with the Seasonally Scattered stamp set with the Reverse Rock and Roll technique. I have used that technique again, with the same image, to create this fun fall card.  Don’t miss my paper crafting tutorial video at the end of this post showing how to do the Reverse Rock and Roll and the background.

Seasonally Scattered Thanks Sponged Color

To achieve the 2 colored focal image I have stamped above you need 2 ink colors and sponge daubers. Ink up the image with the lighter color, Crushed Curry, and then sponge on the darker color, Cajun Craze, in the area you would like darker. This a a great technique that works best with solid images.

Seasonally Scattered Reverse Rock and Roll

The bow is made from some of the Burlap Trim that was pulled apart to get the textured strands. Then I added a couple of leaves from the wonderful Autumn Accents Bigz die. Watch the video below to see how I put this card together. (You may have to go to my site to see the video if you are getting this post in a reader.) All of the supplies can be found in my Online Store.

A fun way to welcome in fall (if I have to welcome fall) is with one of my favorite treats and a cute container to hold it. Have you ever tried mixing Candy Corn with peanuts? If you haven’t, you don’t know what you are missing! I can only have a little bit on hand or I will eat way too much. Don’t miss my paper crafting tutorial video at the end of this post.

Autumn Leaves Bigz Die Fry Box Container

I love pairing the Autumn Accents Bigz die and the Woodgrain Embossing Folder. It seems like I rarely use one without the other. You find the Autumn Accents die in my Online Store by clicking here. I cut out the Mossy Meadow leaves with the Pumpkin Pie Fry Box die cut to make this fun Fall treat holder. Wouldn’t these be so much fun to have as table accents at a lunch or party?

Ok I admit it, my Soft Sky card stock and ink had been doing a lot of sitting and now I cannot keep enough of the color in my stash. I have been seeing so many amazing samples with shades of blue including Soft Sky so I decided to give it a try.

Four feathers with blue and gray  colors

The feathers from the Four Feathers set are stamped with Soft Sky, Island Indigo, and Smoky Slate and cut out with the coordinating Framelits. You can get the stamps and Framelits in a bundle and get a discount. See the bundle here.

I accented the card with some of the easy to make Faux Epoxy Dots. I love making these dots with hot glue and then coloring them with Blendabilities to match. I have made a video showing you how to make the Faux Epoxy Dots that you can see here.
