In today’s card making tutorial, I will show you how to create a Fall themed “Thanks” card using three different inks. The Autumn colors are vibrant and blend well with kraft card stock and burlap ribbon. I hope this card inspires you to think of all things pumpkin spice and apple cider as we head into fall!
Time: 1.5 hours
Spritz white cardstock with Fireworks! Lady Bug, Tangelo, and Dandelion. I like to start with the darkest color first working to the lighter color to fill in the last areas of white. Set aside to dry.
Use Memento Peanut Brittle and Rich Cocoa ink pads and press directly on the cardstock. This creates a splotchy look.
Die cut the Fireworks! colored cardstock with Skeleton Leaves dies. Cut an outline to back the leaves either by hand or with an electronic die cutting machine. Adhere the layers together with On Point Glue. Small dots in the thicker areas of the leaves works best.
Die cut one “Thanks” sentiment from the Fireworks! colored cardstock and three from white cardstock. Layer together with On Point Glue to create a dimensional sentiment. To avoid glue from leaking out from between the layers, use small dots of glue on the outside edges.
Use a soft rubber brayer to ink cardstock trimmed to 4.74” x 5.75”. Kaleidacolor in Autumn Leaves was used with the green portion in the middle and the light orange on either end of the cardstock. Flip the cardstock to achieve this look.
Pressure emboss the cardstock with Basket Weave embossing folder. Use a sanding block to remove color and allow the embossed design to pop.
Using Tear It! Tape, adhere your A7 kraft card base to background. Then tape the burlap ribbon. The Tear It! Tape, it’s translucent enough that it does not show through the burlap, and will hold the card together. Adhere the “Thanks” sentiment and the leaves with On Point Glue.

When I think of all my favorite inks I think of how well they can work together. There’s no better way to create interest than combining different types of inks together for some stunning effects and making easy striking cards.
For this card I simply used a single ink splat stamp and combined it with my favorite inks for a stunning end result.
Skill Level: Beginner
Time: 20 minutes
Combine VersaFine Clair and Memento Luxe inks in the same color to stamp layers. For my first color I combined the yellow inks – first stamping Golden Meadow VersaFine Clair and then on top I stamped Dandelion Memento Luxe.
All my stamping was done in a bit of a diagonal line.
Repeat the process using Verdant VersaFine Clair and Pistachio Memento Luxe.
Repeat the stamping using Warm Breeze VersaFine Clair and Teal Zeal Memento Luxe.
Lastly combine the red by first stamping Glamorous VersaFine Clair and then finish off with Love Letter Memento Luxe ink.
Trim your stamped panel to fit into a folded card base. Cut a vinyl holographic sentiment and adhere to your card. I off-set mine with a white die-cut piece for a shadow effect and dimension. Finish off with some diamante.

On smooth white cardstock add some stenciled details. I used Creative Medium and mixed some Red Brilliance Inker into the medium before applying it through a stencil using my palette knife.
Leave the stenciling to dry.
Once the stenciled detail is dry, add some color using Memento and VersaMagic Dew Drop ink pads.
Apply the ink, once color at a time to a plastic packet and mist with water. Then stamp the color onto your background by flipping the packet over and pressing lightly.
Add more colors and then leave to dry.
Stamp your image using VersaFine Clair Nocturne onto smooth white cardstock.
Use your Memento Markers to add color to your stamped image. I used colors to match my background.
After coloring the image, add a layer of embossing in Sparkle Mboss powder. Ink the image with VersaMark and sprinkle with powder.
Shake off the excess and then use a heat gun to melt the powder. This gives the image a bright and fun shimmering finish.
Use your Tear-It! tape to adhere the background strip to your folded card. Stamp a birthday sentiment below the strip using VersaFine Clair Nocturne.
Adhere the embossed image using foam tape for some dimension and finish off by adhering diamante using On Point Glue.
