Use your inks and markers for vibrant die cut cards!
Hello, fellow crafters! Today, I’m thrilled to share a cardmaking project that’s brimming with the warmth and charm of the autumn season. With the new Heartfelt Harvest release from Honey Bee Stamps as my muse, I’ve created a card that celebrates the beauty of fall using the Lovely Layers Wood Vase die set and the Lovely Layers Autumn Bouquet die set. Along the way, I also incorporated the delightful textures of the Burlap 3D Embossing Folder and the sparkle of Homestead Harvest Gem Stickers. Join me as we embark on a creative journey filled with die-cut florals, ink blending, and the magic of autumn colors.

To set the stage for our autumn bouquet, I started by die-cutting the Lovely Layers Wood Vase from kraft cardstock. Adding depth and dimension, I ink blended the edges with rich shades of brown ink, giving the vase a rustic and weathered look that’s perfect for the season.
With the Lovely Layers Autumn Bouquet die set, I embarked on crafting a vibrant autumn bouquet. I carefully die-cut floral pieces and then brought them to life through ink blending. Using shades of purple, yellow, and orange inks, I transformed the die-cut pieces into a bouquet filled with the rich and warm colors of fall. To add even more realism, I used Copic markers to add fun details to the finished pieces, capturing the essence of each bloom.
With my collection of florals, including wheat and cotton stems, ready, I artfully arranged them in the wood vase. The layered florals took on a life of their own, and the bouquet became the heart of the card.
To create a rustic backdrop for the bouquet, I turned to the Burlap 3D Embossing Folder. This embossing folder added wonderful texture and depth to the card’s background, perfectly complementing the wood vase and the autumn theme.
To bring all the elements together, I used adhesive foam strips and squares to adhere the floral arrangement and vase to the textured background. This added dimension and a sense of depth to the card. I then heat embossed a heartfelt sentiment using the A Little Note Stamps and Dies, adding a personal touch to the creation. Lastly, I adorned the card with Homestead Harvest Gem Stickers, providing a touch of sparkle that captures the magic of autumn.
As you embark on your own autumn crafting adventures, remember that the beauty of the season is a wonderful source of inspiration. Let your creativity flourish, and embrace the warm and inviting colors of fall in your creations. Whether you’re sending heartfelt notes or simply spreading the joy of crafting, may your autumn-inspired projects bring smiles to those who receive them.
Happy crafting, my fellow lovers of all things autumn!
