Instructions

Hi crafty friends! I’m very excited to share with you today’s card tutorial. I was inspired by my recent fall time trip to Indiana – seeing all the changing leaves and hanging out at my sister-in-law’s house out in the country. This tutorial features stamps and dies from Simon Hurley’s latest release. I really enjoyed making this card! And I hope it gives you inspiration to do something fun and creative today! 

Simon Hurley create. Purrs and Pumpkins Card by Lieschen Harshbarger Step 1

Step 1: Begin by creating an A2 card base out of Stark White card stock by trimming an 8½” x 11” piece of cardstock at 5 ½” then scoring it at 4 ¼”. Next, trim the front panel piece out of Stark White cardstock measuring 5¼” x 4”.

Step 2: On the front panel piece, stamp leaves from the Leaf Print stamp set using Emboss It ink. Then, use Cracked Pistachio, Lumberjack Plaid, Aged Mahogany, Fossilized Amber, Tattered Rose, and Abandoned Coral embossing glazes to heat emboss the leaves.

Step 8: On a separate piece of Stark White cardstock, stamp two of the cat images from the Purrfect Cats stamp set. Use Shady ink to stamp the smaller cat and for the large cat image use Weeping Willow. Then, use Cookie Dough ink with a brush to color in the rest of the image.
