Welcome! Today I am so excited to be sharing a few fall cards featuring stamps from Spellbinders and Fun Stampers Journey! Did you know that both of these companies are now coming together? You will be able to find Fun Stamper’s Journey products on the Spellbinder’s site. In case you would like to know more about FSJ, here are four fun facts:
1) FSJ stamps are made in the USA of deeply etched red rubber for a perfect impression every time.
2) Our thin metal dies are made of steel to give you clean cuts time and time again, without warping or dulling. And, they’re coated in FSJ green so they’re easy to find!
3) We offer over 50 exclusive colors – matching cardstock, ink, ribbon and accessories makes creating easy!
4) Over 50% of our stamps have coordinating dies – no more fussy cutting!
Now, let’s take a look at the stamp sets I was able to create with! I have a video tutorial below, as well as photos and description in writing. Enjoy!
For my first card, I stamped out the background stamp, COLOR ME FALL, and then embossed it in some PENNY EMBOSSING POWDER. I knew I wanted to watercolor this background, so I used my AQUA PIGMENT PAPER to stamp on.
After my stamp image was embossed, I watercolored it in using my AQUA PIGMENTS. I tried to stick to warm fall colors, so lots of reds, oranges, and browns.
With my background colored in, I then cut the paper down to size to layer on the front of my card base. I chose some WAGON cardstock because I love the rustic red!
Then, for the sentiment, I cut a strip of vellum and stamped the fox and sentiment and embossed in the same PENNY that I used for the background. I layered this vellum over my background, and then added some twine to finish it off!
Dont you love how the embossing powder just shines?
My second card I decided to use the fox again. I also used the three leaves in this set to stamp out a fall wreath. I drew a circle so I had a line to follow. Then, I chose a number of fall colors of my SURFACE INKS to stamp with. I just stamped around my circle, filling is spots to keep it even, and alternating the leaves. Then, to finish the wreath, I stamped and embossed a few leaves in my GILDED EMBOSSING POWDER.
Before I adhered my fox down, I stamped a simple sentiment inside the wreath. I used foam adhesive behind the fox to give him some dimension, and then embellished the card using some twine and a few sequins.
I am absolutely in love with these two cards! If you are inspired by them as well, please check out these Fun Stamper’s Journey stamp sets HERE.
