Thankful by Dina Kowal

We have a beautiful project from Dina Kowal today!

Dina used Pumpkin Pair, CAC Vines Vertical, Thankful & Thank You for Thinking.

I watercolored the pumpkins using Distress Markers, and stamped a few background  images with the marker ink from my palette.

The card is a Pop-Up Book Card, and in general, foldy cards hate me... but this one was surprisingly friendly. Inside the card there are just 2 cut lines, and the score lines were easy to follow.

Once it's all folded in the right directions, the center section looks like an open book.


Have a great day!

To make my card, I used the Feather die set, along with the Pine Pair die set, and a sentiment from the Autumn Leaves clear stamp set. I die cut pretty designer papers in various brown tones as well as a beautiful copper colored glitter paper for a bit of sparkle and shine.

Fall Leaves by Dina Kowal

Dina Kowal shares a stunning Fall card today.

 


I used dye and chalk inks to stamp various leaves across my card panel, then watered down dye ink from the lid of my inkpad to splatter with a brush. A wooden button tied with dark twine finishes off the panel.


Stamps I used:
