Hello everyone, It’s Mona here, in my newest tutorial I am going to show you some easy ways how to create soft fall feeling cards with various stencils using Glitz Glitter Gels by Gina K. Designs and Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets.
Feeling Fall Cards
For this project, I prepared 100lb heavyweight Cardstock by Lawn Fawn in color Speckled Eggshell. I cut them in 5.5 by 4.25 inches.
I picked various stencils, fixed them to the cardstock with Purple Tape, and dry embossed them with my die-cut machine.
For this technique you will need an embossing mat, I have used my Platinum die-cutting machine, but it works with any die-cutting machine.
This is such a cool technique to turn your stencils into embossing folders and give your cardstock more texture. You can make this with any patterned stencil, but if you want to check what I have used you can find the used supplies below the post.
After dry embossing, I didn’t remove the stencils from the cardstocks, because I wanted to apply on them sparkly Glitz Glitter Gels by Gina K. Designs as well.
For some of the bases, I put the gel partially, to highlight a few elements like here with the leaves. It looks super cool that some of the leaves are just dry embossed, and some of them are super shiny from the Glitz Glitter Gel.
If you want you can cover almost the entire place on it. It doesn’t need to be perfect don’t overthink it. And there is another option, if you want you can mix and match various gels like I did with the Sweet Mango, Gold, and Iridescent Glitz Glitter Gels.
I also stamped solid images with different colors from the Sending Sunshine, Where the Flowers Bloom, and some older stamp sets as well. You can find the used inkpad colors below the post.
On some stamped images I made a really basic quick coloring with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers. I have used these shades: RB3, RB1, AP1, AP3, VB1, VB3. Super simple coloring but it looks nice.
The next step was the sentiment. I decided to die-cut the sentiments from White Flock Transfer Sheets and die-cut another layer from colored cardstock to pop out the white flock sentiment.
I made lots of techniques on these cards, to showcase you the opportunities, if you want to feel free to try these techniques separately or mix them together. You will get amazing results.
And these are my finished card designs. Tell in your comment which one is your favorite. Thank you so much for stopping by, have an amazing day, Mona.
