Save The Turkeys/Autumn Colors for Stamp Ink Paper and Retro Rubber Card Challenge Blogs
TGIF everyone!! Today is the first day in about a week that we have no rain, the sun is shining bright and there are fluffy white clouds in the sky. It has poured every night this week with major thunder and lightening too. And, of course, electric on and off. But it looks like it's going to be a great weekend.
I cannot believe it is almost Halloween! This year has flown by. Although this is not today's card, I wanted to share a Halloween card that I made the other day. I used a new Prima doll image called Bootiful, some really old QuicKutz dies of a cemetery and bats, and a giant moon out of yellow glittered fun foam.
Now for today's card, which is perfect for two card challenges going on. This week's Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #71 had some funky colors to work with - mint, rust and mustard - perfect autumn colors.
And the Retro Rubber Challenge #50 - is Fall colors! Perfect. One card for two challenges.
I used the cutest little turkey image (and a phrase) from "Save the Turkeys" by Sweet N Sassy Stamps. I have owned this baby for over two years now but it is still available to buy on her website.
I started with a top folding A2 white cardstock base. I found an great plaid autumn paper from The Ghosts & Goblins Matstack by DCWV, which I adhered to the card front. Then I found mint, rust, and mustard cardstock in the Harvest Gathering Matstack. Using the 3 largest dies from the Pierced Rectangles STAX, I cut the rust with the largest die, the mustard with the next size down, and the mint with the smallest of the 3. I also die cut some fir trees and pumpkins using two dies by Impression Obsession - Fir Trees (DIE084-V) and Pumpkin Patch (DIE202-G). Lastly, I stamped the turkey and the phrase on a piece of white cardstock and fussy cut him out.
I adhered the 3 layers to the card front. I then distressed the edges of the trees with Vintage Photo ink and adhered them on top of the colored cardstocks.
Lastly, I colored the turkey with various copic markers, adhered him to the card front with pop dots, and then adhered some of the pumpkins on each side of him. I glued some down and a few I used a pop dot behind it.
That's it. Done! I wasn't sure how to use the mint (which looks blue here) but I decided to use it as the background sky. I think it all worked out well. I hope you guys liked both cards today.
