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!

Don't you just love the beautiful Fall colors in this pic! Here's what I've made for you today:


 I stamped the flower from the Just A Rose stamp set with Memento London Fog using second generation stamping (for no-line coloring) and colored with Copics YR68, Y38, Y35 and YR31 for orange and YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for green.
