Happy September everyone! Thanks for dropping by my blog today.
Happy Spring to everyone over in my part of the world. It’s funny because as you read today’s post which has an Autumnal feel – it’s not very reminiscent of ‘spring’.
I just couldn’t help myself!
This month the Stamping Society team are featuring seasonal projects and my favourite season of all time is actually Autumn so I just had to use one of the new bundles to my stash – Fond of Autumn. I wanted to bring out these beautiful Autumn colours and play with some fun watercolour techniques.
So join us this month as we are featuring a load of fun projects!

Let’s have a look at todays’ fun project…
I had so much fun with the project this month. I was really inspired by the large floral arrangement from the Fond of Autumn Stamp Set and I really wanted to play with some watercolour. I decided to heat emboss on some Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper. This makes it so much easy to watercolour as it helps create a ‘wall’ to make it easier to stay in the lines. I used Copper embossing powder to add a little bit to the fall theme.
I have broken out some beautiful reds/oranges/yellows to play with some fall colours.
Here’s a little look a little bit of my colour palette…
Here is a close up look at my finished card.
I have pulled out a colour that I do not use very often and that is Very Vanilla. I loved the brown/creamy tones with the Autumnal colours. I used a Blending Brush with some Crumb cake to soften and age the edges.
I have then added some strips of the beautiful Brushed Metallic Cardstock in the darkest colour to the middle in varying widths for some added interest.
You can see a video tutorial of how I have made the card here:
I loved playing with these products.
Here is a little look at the inside of the finished card.
It wouldn’t be a fun card without a fun inside.
I have replicated a bit of the outside into the inside with some more stamping in Crushed Curry, a little sentiment and some more of that gorgeous Brushed Metallic Cardstock.
I had so much fun playing with this seasonal theme.
What season is your favourite?
