Concord & 9th Thankful Leaves | Alcohol Inks and Die Cuts

August is such an interesting time in the cardmaking world. Looking on all the social media sites there are cards featuring mermaids and beaches. With fall around the corner, the coffee, pumpkin and warm colors start appearing. Of course there are those few who share beautiful winter scenes with snow, sleighs and trees decorated with lights. A little bit of everything right now and I love it.  🌴🍁🎄
This is the start of my fall themed cards. 😊

Watch the video here.

I decided to purchase the new Concord and 9th Leaf Turnabout stamp and dies; Plus a few other things but I will save those for another day. 

I started out with alcohol ink. I mixed Red Pepper, Sunshine yellow and Limeade on a piece of YUPO paper. Once that was dry and I die cut the alcohol ink piece with the Thankful Leaf die. This die set comes with the solid leaf die and a die to cut the veins of the leaf. I used the vein die with Neenah Solar white and layered that over the solid maple leaf. 

I did some embossing for the sentiments and a quick random pattern with a 3 leaf stamp on Neenah Dessert Storm with Kraft ink for a tone on tone look. This panel was also cut using a Lawn Fawn dot rectangle die and popped up with a scrap piece of white fun foam on a Neenah 110lb cardbase. I used another Concord and 9th die (Confetti Card Die) to get the pinking shear look on the edge of the card base. I did this by placing the top edge of the die just past the score line of the card base so that it would cut through. This made it so that the card seam was kept intact and the other 3 sides were die cut. I did have to run this through my Big Shot several times to get a complete cut.

I added some splatters with a smaller stamp that comes with the Leaf Turnabout set, with MFT extreme black ink. Then I used black Nuvo Crystal Drops and a Fiskars embossing stylus tool for the smaller black spots. I was definitely pleasantly surprised with how well this worked and how easy it was to create smaller dots with the Nuvo Drops. Which is something that I have struggled to do by just using the Nuvo bottle tip. Though I couldn't find the exact stylus sold I do link to one that is very similar below. 

The inside is created using a mix of Gina K Inks in Red Velvet, Wild Dandelion and Lucky Clover. After placing the stamp on the stamp platform I inked up the middle portions using the lightest color first (Wild Dandelion) so that it wouldn't be contaminated by the other, darker, inks. Then I inked Lucky Clover below and Red Velvet on the top edge. I also tied in the 3 leaf stamp again from the front of the card using the same Kraft Gina K Ink.
