I am so sorry I did not get this set!  I love the different cards I’ve seen on pinterest and on the Stampin’ UP! blog.

Enjoy!

Fall Fest!

I love when I can use a stamp set for more than one occasion. I thought I’d share some different ways to use Fall Fest throughout the fall season . . . and beyond!

First of all, here’s a card to show your gratitude. For the pumpkins, I used a rock and roll technique with three ink colors (Cajun Craze, Hello Honey, and Pumpkin Pie), then spritzed water on the stamp before stamping on Watercolor Paper. Then, I used the coordinating Framelits set to cut out each image. I used the same faux watercolor technique on the leaves using Mossy Meadow ink. I can’t seem to get enough of this technique. It never looks the same twice and that’s what I love about it—it’s one of a kind!

Now, let’s get you ready for Halloween.  Using the jack-o-lantern faces, I added a face to my little ghost using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the large White Filter Paper circle.  (No cutting required!) I finished it off with a little bit of Basic Black Baker’s Twine—so simple and so cute. This would make a fun classroom treat.

The last project I made was inspired by my home. I love to decorate for the seasons and recently found some blue-green pumpkins that look great in my home. I added some gold accents to dress them up a bit. (I got the blue-green look through a combination of stamping off and rock and roll.) This one took a little bit of trial and error and it never turned out the same twice. Play around with some stamps, ink, and paper to see what you can create!
