Fall is Here!

Hi Friends! Here’s another pop-up card I created using new stamps, dies, and papers from Lawnfawn. (Click here for yesterday’s pop-up post!) I said it yesterday, but I need to say it again; I am obsessed with these pop-up dies. They are so fun, and the new stamp sets are even cuter than usual. Have you seen them? Better yet, have you ordered? Check out all of the adorable Lawn Fawn cards on their blog here.

I began by stamping all of the critters and leaves on Neenah cardstock and Memento black ink, and then colored with Copic markers. Do you think my coloring is a little better than yesterday’s card? A quick lesson from my awesome sister (MelissaMade2) helped a lot. I’m not a big fan of coloring right now, so I’m okay with today’s results.

The background was created by blending distress inks onto watercolor paper and then dribbled water onto it. Simple, but cute!

Next I blended shades of red, orange, and yellow distress inks onto watercolor paper to create the tree backgrounds, and picked the best areas to die cut.

Then I cut the portrait tree from the fall perfectly plaid papers, and shaded with vintage photo ink.  I cut one piece of green cardstock using the stitched tree borders, and colored the trees with walnut stain distress marker.

I selected the size of pop-ups I thought would work, die cut them, added a panel behind to hide the cuts, and added a stitched hillside border to add more dimension. I placed the critters and leaves (some with foam dots for even more depth), embossed the sentiment using Simon Says Stamp embossing powder, and added some vintage photo ink around the edges.

Finally, I added a polka in the dark paper panel to the front of the card with a stitched maple leaf die cut for added interest.

What do you think? I can’t wait to begin creating some winter and Christmas scenes with these pop-ups! Thanks for stopping by again today. Love and crafty hugs!
