We’re previewing new sets this week at Paperie Ink. My card today features another adorable set by Paperie Ink called Autumn Fun and a new Forest Scene slimline die that not only includes the landscape scene you see here, but two additional birch tree trunks! These products will be available Sunday, 10/11/2020.

To make this slimline card measuring 8-1/2″ wide X 3-1/2″ tall, I started by die cutting this awesome scene die out of a light warm gray cardstock. Notice the cute stitching around the edge. It’s so charming! I added additional detailing using warm gray Copic colors and a black marker.  The background is a blended watercolor wash in a light mauve and peachy yellow tones. I created it using Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors and Canson XL Bristol Smooth watercolor paper. The background pieced and framed scene were adhered together using Honey Bee Stamps Precision Glue (my favorite) and attached to an 80lb Neenah Solar White cardstock slimline card base.

With the background behind us (:)) it’s time to work on the foreground. I stamped, colored and fussy cut the four cute characters, various leaf piles and a pumpkin. To make the large leaf pile in the center, I stamped a number of leaf pile images together to create one big pile. Once everything was glued into place, I stamped three leaves in the sky and added “bits” of leaves in the sky using Copics in E57, RV99, YR24, YR27 and W5. Additional shading was added at the bottom to complete this look. Lastly, I stamped the phrase on the card front using my MISTI tool.
