Painted Autumn Suite was my inspiration for this week’s project. I love the beautiful watercolored look of the images and Designer Series Paper and the sentiments seemed to really touch my heart.

Painted Autumn Vellum Panel Card

Look at how the vellum softens the colors of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper in this card-I just love it!

Inspiration for this card was a card I had seen that was created by Jennifer McGuire and knew I had to give it a try.

A great card design can be altered slightly and used for lots of different occasions.

Quickly change the look by switching up the…

  • Designer Series Paper
  • stamp set & sentiments
  • ribbon or accessories
  • the options are only limited by your imagination and your craft stash

Tips & Tricks for Stampin’ like a Pro

Whether you’ve ever used this autumn-themed set or not, one of its most endearing attributes is that it gives you the look and feel of painting with watercolors. And, like any work of art, there are many factors that influence your final product. This set was designed to help give your stamps a one-of-a-kind feel and is meant to mimic the nature of watercolor, I think it is absolutely gorgeous!

For the perfectionists among us (or those simply looking to master your craft), here are some tips and tricks for stampin’ like a pro!

  • Stamp all layers of the image
  • Make sure your ink pads are well inked
  • Nice, even pressure when stamping will give the best image
  • Use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat
  • Lighter colors won’t show up as deeply as darker colors, something to keep in mind
  • Play around with saturation levels (e.g., stamping full strength vs. stamping off) to get the look you desire
  • The stamp coordinates well with but is not supposed to match the flowers on the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper
