See How to Create a Wood Sign for Autumn

Happy Fall Y’all Wooden Sign by Tenia Nelson

Tenia here from Jazzy Paper Designs with a colorful fall leaves project using wood, die cuts and of course made with Imagine products.

I started by adding ink to the edges of a wood hanging sign using a Memento Peanut Brittle DewDrop. This color is a beautiful wood grain complement. Next, I hand-lettered the word “fall” onto wood sign using three different Fabrico Markers in a rich color scheme. I like the dense quality of the Fabrico markers for using with wood. To give this sign a little shimmer and color, I added Fireworks Craft Spray in Desert Sand and Rich Cocoa. From here, you can create a sentiment or just leave the word “Fall” as is. I choose to create the sentiment, “Happy Fall Y’all” to make it fun and light. Choose a leaf die cut with an autumn feel. Cut out the fall leaf and decorate as you see fit. Adhere leaf to sign and add any additional embellishments.

Decorating Wood with All-Purpose Ink by Neva Cole

I chose to create a new wooden sign to celebrate the coming of autumn. In the process, I discovered that All-Purpose Ink is a great stain for a porous wood surface! A leaf stencil supplies the design, a fun tall and skinny alphabet stamp and StazOn ink makes quick work of a darling home décor sign. For what it is worth, remember that two-sided signs allow you to have a practice run at color choices and placement of images; when it is hanging by your door no one will be the wiser! With a few supplies, you can try your hand at creating a something new for your home.

Place stencil over wood sign and ink with All-Purpose ink. Place InkBlusher over the opening of the bottle and gently tip to add ink. Apply the API through the stencil. I always start with the lightest color first, in this case, Lemon Yellow.

Apply different colors like Tangerine through the stencil. The API will still be slightly wet and will blend nicely. The project can be set aside to dry or the process can be sped up with a heat tool. Move stencil and add additional colors to the scheme like Red Delicious. You can also use a palette or Craft Mat and API to create new blends of fall colors. Determine placement and stamp sentiment with StazOn ink, I used Blazing Red. Set aside to dry. Not being satisfied, I decided a bit of color around the edges would finish off the rustic look of the sign, Autumn Leaf API was a perfect choice. Now, I have a new sign to hang at my front door for the autumn season!

Say Hello or Thank You with Rose Gold Greetings

Hello Greeting Card by Tenia Nelson

Tenia here from Jazzy Paper Designs with a very cool “Hello Lady!” card using Tsukineko Delicata Rose Gold ink. This is a great design for a girlfriend who has been on your mind lately and with whom you need to reach out to! Send some positive vibes her way with this cute design!

Here my thoughts on how to create this fun card. First stamp and heat emboss the “Hello” sentiment with Delicata Rose Gold onto kraft cardstock. Add the same Delicata Rose Gold ink onto an acrylic block, add water and use a brush to splatter onto a panel. Add the butterfly and jewel embellishments onto the card and create “Lady!” sentiment with a Dymo Label Maker. Adhere panel onto white card using foam adhesive. And that is it! Super easy and will certainly brighten someone’s day.

Say Thanks in Rose Gold by Roni Johnson

Need to thank someone for a kind act? Say it in style with Rose Gold Delicata Ink on black cardstock! This ink transforms an everyday sentiment into a grand gesture giving it a bit of class and polish while the black cardstock adds a bit of drama. Toss in clear embossing powder and you get the bonus of texture on your card.

For the background, place card panel on craft mat; tear strips of washi tape and temporarily adhere to the card in diagonal lines leaving as much or as little space between the strips as desired. Use sponge dauber to apply Rose Gold Delicata to the spaces. Carefully remove the tape and set aside to dry.

For the textured panel, cut a small piece of cardstock, place stencil over top and sponge ink through the stencil. Remove the stencil, sprinkle the wet ink with clear embossing powder, shake off excess and heat to melt the powder.

To finish, Stamp the sentiment “thanks” with Delicata Rose Gold and let dry. Assemble the card with double stick foam tape to pop the sentiment/texture panel off of the background panel. Affix flat back gems using On Point Glue.
