MFT August Release Countdown – Day 5


Hello crafty friends! Welcome to My Favorite Things August Release Countdown!! Today is Day 5. I am featuring the Spooky Sweets Stamp Set and Die-namics, but I am not using them for Halloween. Instead, I am using them for Fall theme 🙂

Here is my first messy watercolor card. I first stamped the pumpkins from Spooky Sweets Stamp Set with various distress inks, then I painted over them with Gansai Tambi watercolor to add some dimension. Lastly, I painted in a brown background. I am obsessed with browns lately. I think it complements anything! Pumpkins, flowers, everything!

To finish off my card, I die cut my watercolor panel with Die-namics Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX, then with Die-namics Blueprints 25. I threaded some hemp cord in the holes and tied a bow. The sentiment is white heat embossed on vellum. Finally, I mounted the panel on Primitive Cream card base with foam tape.


For my second card, I took a different direction. I saw a lot of Fall wreaths in my local craft store and I wanted to make one myself. Fall is such a beautiful season and I cannot wait for it to arrive 🙂

Aug Day 5 (2a)

  1. Stamp the pumpkins with Pineapple, Orange ZestTangy Orange and Latte dye inks. Die cut them out accordingly
  2. Die cut a lot of leaves from watercolor paper using the Falling Leaves Die-namics. Watercolor them with Gansai Tambi watercolor
  3. For my background, white heat emboss the sentiment, then paint a few brown washes over it. Add some brown and gold watercolor splatters. When dry, die cut out with Die-namics Blueprints 25
  4. Mount the pumpkins and leaves with foam tape. Embellish with some PPP Clear Sparkling sequins
