October Mood Board

Hello, Rachel here today with my take on the October Mood board!


I immediately knew that I wanted that black to be my card base, but a black base is normally so dull. Then I remembered this leaf cover die that I have in my stash and thought it would be the perfect back drop for the gorgeous Splendid Roses stamp set!


I started by cutting out my background from basic black cardstock and then adhering it to the front of a white card base. I covered the back of another piece of white cardstock with double sided tape and then cut my cover die from it again. The tape made it just thick enough that the die cuts through the paper, but leaves the backing intact. It was then a simple matter to color my die cut leaves with my copics before popping out the small pieces and fitting them in like a puzzle with my card base. This was my background matches the greens that I used to color my floral with.

Next, I stamped my flowers on another piece of white cardstock and then colored them in with my copics. I carefully fussy cut them with my scissors and then set them on top of my base where I wanted them adhered. Then I stamped my sentiment on Vellum with Versamark ink and heat embossed it in gold. I carefully placed the vellum piece behind the flowers and adhered them to the back of the that piece. I added foam tape to the back of my flowers and then situated it on top of my background and pressed down to adhere. 

This was fairly time consuming, but only because of the fussy background. It was actually pretty fun to put together!

Thanks for stopping by!

I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!
