Hello friends. It’s Bobbi Lemanski here with a fall bounty! It’s Autumn and time to decorate with those fun and colorful gourds and pumpkins. My card features these cute new fruit dies and this fabulous farm wagon to haul the large, seeded fruits. I’m using the following Honey Bee Stamps products:
The featured project below is made from Neenah 80lb Solar White cardstock for the card base and card front panel. All of the black ink stamping was done using Honey Bee’s Bee Creative Intense Black Ink. I use Honey Bee Stamps Bee Creative Precision Glue and for when I want more dimension, Bee Creative Foam Dots With Tab for adhering my elements together. My card is 5″ X 7″ in size.
This 5″ X 7″ card is very straight forward. I die cut the cart from a medium brown cardstock and the rest of the elements, including the fruits from white cardstock. I colored everything using Copic Sketch Markers in greens, browns, oranges and yellows. For yellows, I used YR or yellow-red colors (v. Y colors). For greens, I used YG or yellow-greens (v. G colors) for an autumn harvest. These colors really bring on the fall feel!
If you know me, you know I love to use warm grays for shadows to “ground” the vignette. I used W4, W2, and W0 to spread the shadow out a bit. I also like to use my white Gelly Roll pen for highlights. Adding shadows and highlights help create more dimension.
I assembled the cart with straw or hay and added fruit to the top of the cart. I added a few leaves in between the fruit. On the ground, I added four more gourds / pumpkins. I attached the elements using glue and foam tabs to make the design pop off the page. I also stamped the sentiment “Oh My Gourd” at the top using black ink and attached the front panel to a white card base to complete the card.
