Using Your Dies to Create a Scene


Happy Friday! This post will be up on the Birch Press Design blog Monday, November 1st! Posting a day early because November the 1st is the first day of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags! This card uses the new Pumpkin Lacework stamps and dies along with some other unusual dies to create my autumn pumpkin patch scene!

Birch Press Design doesn't currently have a cloud die, but I wanted to make clouds in my sky. So I put my thinking hat on and used the tail die from the Regal Peacock Layer die set and made my own stencil!

I as so happy with the way it turned out.

The pumpkin and stem from the Pumpkin Lacework stamp set were stamped and clear embossed on Bristol Cardstock once again. I blended Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade and Carved Pumpkin ink over the embossed pumpkin to add a bit of shading and dimension. I blended Peeled Paint and Frayed Burlap ink over the pumpkin stem. I cut the ink blended shapes out with the coordinating dies.

After I die cut my banner and stamped my sentiment I noticed that I got some orange ink on the one side of the banner. Did I throw it out and start again? No way, I just took my blending foam and put some orange ink all the way around the banner and a bit on the tails. 

If you want a bit more detail on how I put this card together head over to Birch Press Design blog tomorrow morning!

Wishing you a fabulous weekend. 

Thanks for stopping in!
