Let's make a handmade Autumn Birthday Card with an unexpected pop of Powder Pink. Reds, Greens, oranges and yellows are all tradition autumn colors, but what about pink? Yes, pink can be an autumn color too. Today's card is for my Daughter-in-Law, Melissa, who is an autumn kind of gal. I combined 2 stamp sets and their coordinating dies to make today's card. What do you think? Does the Beautiful Bouquet and the Colorful Seasons stamp set pair up nicely?
And the Colorful Seasons stamp set is 15% Off today and tomorrow in honor of World Card Making Day. Autumn leaves and big, bold autumn flowers go so well together. For the background, I dry embossed Very Vanilla Card Stock with the Woodland Embossing Folder.
How to Get Multi-Colored Blended Stamped Images
Getting Multi-Colored Blended Stamped images like I did for the maple leaves and the big orange flowers is super easy to do. For the flowers, I inked up my flowers with Pumpkin Pie Ink, then I loaded my sponge dauber with Cajun Craze ink and applied it over selected areas of my stamp as shown above and then I stamped as usual. Easy Peasy!
For the Maple Leaves, I inked my leaf stamp with Old Olive Ink and my sponge dauber with Cherry Cobbler Ink.
