Hey there friends, today I’m back with another card idea using Stampin’ Up!’s Autumn Greetings stamp set.

As with the last card, I am using a masking with ink blending technique. This time, I decided to go for more of a clean and simple/modern feel to my card. So instead of covering my entire panel with blended inks, I decided to create three narrow strips of color, leaving the rest of the image uncolored.

Here is a close up of the card.

As you can see, the three colors I chose for the ink strips – Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight – I carried over to the die cut letters. The only change I made was with the Daffodil Delight. Instead of using Daffodil Delight cardstock for the letter “y,” I opted for Crushed Curry CS. And that is because the Daffodil Delight CS was too light and bright for the overall feel of the card.

Stampin’ Up! Autumn Greetings | “Hey There Friend” Card Step-by-Step Tutorial

Here is how I made this card:

Step 1: Fold the 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock in half, with a bone folder, to create a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base.

Step 2: Stamp the large floral image onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Step 3: Position the third from the largest die from the Stitched Rectangles dies over the floral image, on an angle, so that there is a white area at the bottom left corner of the frame.  Hold the die in place using repositionable adhesive and run it through a die cutting machine.

Step 4: Place the die cut floral image on your grid paper in a landscape format with the white area at the top left.  Stick a piece of Stamping Mask paper about 3/4″ up from the bottom edge.  Stick a second piece of Stamping Mask paper about 1/4″ above the first piece.

Step 5: Apply ink to the unmasked area of the floral image using Cajun Craze ink and a sponge dauber.

Step 6: Remove the top piece of Masking Paper and move it up about 1/4″ and stick it back down. Remove the bottom piece of Masking Paper and move it up just under 1/4″ and stick it back down.  You want a very small bit of the Cajun Craze ink to be showing just above the bottom piece of Masking Paper.

Step 7: Apply ink to the unmasked area of the floral image using Pumpkin Pie ink and a sponge dauber.

Step 8: Remove the top piece of Masking Paper and move it up about 1/4″ and stick it back down. Remove the bottom piece of Masking Paper and move it up just under 1/4″ and stick it back down. You want a very small bit of the Pumpkin Pie ink to be showing just above the bottom piece of Masking Paper.

Step 9: Apply ink to the unmasked area of the floral image using Daffodil Delight ink and a sponge dauber.

Step 10: Place some foam adhesive on the back of the 3/4″ x 1″ piece of Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry cardstock pieces.  Die cut the letter H from the Cajun Craze cardstock, the E from the Pumpkin Pie cardstock and the Y from the Crushed Curry cardstock.

Step 11: Stamp the “hello there friend” greeting onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Fussy cut the “there friend” portion of the greeting, leaving a narrow border, using paper snips.

Step 12: Place the border die along the right side of the 1 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Cajun Craze cardstock.  Hold the die in place using repositionable adhesive and run it through a die cutting machine.

Step 13: Stick the die cut border to the back of the left side of the floral panel, using double sided adhesive.

Step 14: Stick the H, E and Y letters that you die cut to the floral panel. Stick the “there friend” greeting onto the floral panel, just below the die cut letters, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Step 15: Center and stick the floral panel onto the card base, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Step 16: Embellish the card with some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  You’re done!

There you have it friends! I hope you enjoyed today’s video tutorial.
