Welcoming Woods - Good Luck

Image
This is a case from Gail O'Neill's video.  I love the bear in the woods theme and wanted to re-create her card.  The stamp set is Welcoming Woods from the 2021 Holiday Min (July-December Mini).  It's a great stamp set to use for Fall, which will be here in a couple days.  The background is Early Espresso cardstock cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4" in the middle.  The second layer is Cajun Craze cardstock cut at 4" x 5-1/4" and inserted into the Timber Embossing Folder and through the Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine.  I use Multipurpose Liquid Glue when adhering embossed cardstock to the front of the card.   The Basic White cardstock is cut at 3-1/ x 3-3/4".  Ink up the tree stamp with Soft Suede ink.  Use the Blending Brushing in Balmy Blue ink for the sky.  The leaves are Cajun Craze.  Use the ground covering stamp with Soft Suede ink.   Use the Light Soft Suede Blend to color in the ground.  Layer onto the 3-1/2" x 4"

Welcoming Woods on Cork Paper

I've been busy taken care of my grandson because his little sister came into the world about three weeks early, so I've not been posting any cards on my blog.  I'm home now, so hope to start posting again.  This card was inspired by Bruno Bertucci but I did it a little differently.  I used Early Espresso ink instead of Black ink.  The paper is also Early Espresso instead of Basic Black.  The new Cork Specialty Paper is new in the mini catalog and I think this set Welcoming Woods is perfect to stamp on it.   I first inked it up the trees with Versamark ink and then Early Espresso.  Then I quickly added Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I used the Stamparatus to ink it up. These are my instructions:   Stamp Set:  Welcoming Woods Cardstock:  Early Espresso, Cork Specialty Paper Ink:  Versamark, Early Espresso, and Clear Embossing Powder Other: Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine, Stamparatus, Seasonal Labels Dies, Paper Trimmer, Heat Tool, Metallic Pearls, Multipurp
