Autumn Bliss - Penny Black

Hello and happy Friday everyone!  

Today I have three Fall themed cards to share with you. This post is full of Fall colors :) !!!

I had the pleasure to play with Penny Black's Autumn Bliss  release stamp and die sets recently. For today's cards I chose the dainty and natural stamp sets: Acorn and Animals(30-599), Golden Delight (30-601) and Autumn Bliss(30-600). 

This is my first card. I did some no line coloring on the beautiful fox and leaves from Acorn and Animals (30-599) and Autumn Bliss (30-600) and placed them on a shiny copper base. 

I stamped the fox and leaves on Canson watercolor paper in Antique Linen DI and watercolored them using Mijello Mission Gold watercolors. I cut them out, some of the leaves using coordinating dies of Autumn Bliss Cut Out (51-590), and set them aside.

 The background panel was made using a metallic copper cardstock. I heat embossed the pretty wreath of Golden Delight (30-601) and the acorn branch from Acorn and Animals (30-599) on it in metallic copper EP to get a tone on tone look.

I mounted the slightly narrowed background panel on a white cardbase and arranged the leaves to put the fox on them. The die for the sentiment is from Blushing Cut Out (51-536). I cut the sentiment three times from some white cardstock and added it onto the card. I finished off the card by adding some gold and bronze rhinestones.

The second card is featuring a prettily decorated pumpkin from Autumn Bliss(30-600) set and again the acorn branch from Acorn and Animals (30-599) set. 

I stamped the pumpkin on a solar white paper in light brown ink and colored it using Copic markers. After the coloring was done I gold heat embossed the image again with the help of MISTI tool and cut it using the coordinating die.

To create the background I used the acrylic block stamping technique. I chose a 2.5" x 3.5" block, scribbled yellow, orange and dark red Distress inks on it, sprayed pearlized water and pressed it onto a watercolor paper panel. I repeated the process to get the look I wanted.

After the panel was dry I gold heat embossed the acorn branch from Acorn and Animals (30-599) twice on it as shown in the picture. I then dry embossed the panel using a Stitched Loops die (51-573) to give the colored rectangle a frame. Lastly I stamped the sentiment from  Golden Delight (30-601) stamp set on it in dark brown.

I foam mounted the background panel on a kraft cardbase and added the pumpkin on it using some foam adhesives. Some Medallion Gold sequins by The Ton were my finishing touch.

The last card for today is a square card.  I thought the cute wreath of Golden Delight (30-601) set would fit perfectly on a square card :)!

First I made the background panel. I used Hazelnut, Butterscotch, Sunshine Yellow and Mountain Rose alcohol ink to create a Fall colored panel. On a Yupo panel I sprayed lots of rubbing alcohol, added the droplets of alcohol inks and blew to blend them. And then I splattered gold Mixative on it.

The wreath of Golden Delight (30-601) was stamped in a light ink on a solar white paper panel, colored using Copic markers and then gold heat embossed.  I cut the wreathe using Golden Delight Cut Out (51-589). 

I cut the background Yupo panel in a square, matted it with a dark brown square panel and added them on a white cardbase. The wreath was foam mounted on it. The sentiment was gold heat embossed on a strip of the same dark brown cardstock I used for the background, and added onto the card. 

Hope you enjoyed looking my Fall themed cards!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and staying with me through this long post :) !
Have a wonderful weekend!

TaeEun I adore the Autumn theme of these sets, and your creations - in all those fantastic Fall colors! Well done!

Bobby said...

These are all so fantastic, TaeEun. I love that sweet fox.

Pat said...

As usual all three cards are beautifully done TaeEun and all in stunning Autumnal colours. The fox is so cute and love the embossed leafy circles in the background, and the floral pumpkin is beautifully dimensional, and more lovely embossing, and then the pretty wreath and a fabulous AI background with the fabulous gold splattering. All three have super sentiments too. x

Love the pumpkin card! What is Dls and pearlized water?

TaeEun said...

Hi Joan. I couldn't find your email address and the reply function on my comment setting is somehow disappeared. I hope it reaches out to you, if I write my answer here :). DI is Distress ink by Tim Holtz. The abbreviation is commonly used in blog land :). With the pearlized water I meant water mixed with pearl pigment like Perfect Pearls. You put a little bit of it into the water spray bottle and mix. It gives a nice shine to your project. Hope this helps!
