This is another card that we made for Dyan’s hostess stamp camp. I like to keep the cards very simple for these camps, especially when there are new stampers there. When you are making 25 cards in one evening, it can get a little overwhelming. These new stampers jumped in with both feet though and once they started playing with the embossing folders, some were embossing everything! So my little card looked  plain, next to theirs. Still this Little Friends image takes center stage, that little guy is so cute!

Hope you get to stamp today!

More fall fun with the Autumn Splendor set! These are cards we have been doing at workshops and Stamp Camp this month. Both are very simple in design but the embossed background really adds such a beautiful effect to the card, and it is so easy to do! Just slide your cardstock into the folder and then run it through the Big Shot Machine.

For this card we just added a few cut out leaves, buttons and a punched sentiment.

Autumn Splendor

This card also uses the Autumn Splendor set and no ink! We stamped the image using the watercolor crayons. This is a fun technique to use when you need gradient color and this is the perfect set for it! Simply apply the color directly to the stamp with the crayon. Be careful to make sure the entire image is colored. Use two to three colors on your image. When you have applied the crayon, spritz the stamp with a fine mist of water and then stamp directly onto your cardstock. The water will blend the colors and you will get a lovely watercolor effect.

Tip:When adhering embossed or textured card stock, I like to use our Tombow Multi glue for a more permanent bond.
