Fall Cards

Fall Greetings | Hero Arts September My Monthly Hero Countdown

Hi there, I hope you’ve had a good week!

We’re counting down to the release of the new Hero Arts September My Monthly Hero Card kit! The kit goes live on Tuesday, September 8th at 10am PST/1pm EST.

For my card today I stamped the pumpkin layers in Fresh Lawn, Pine, Butter Bar, and Orange Soda inks and then stamped the cornfield layers in Pine and Navy. Then I heat embossed the sentiment using clear Embossing & Watermark ink and Brass embossing powder. Then I used the coordinating die to cut out this layer and set it aside.

For the background I used foam blending tools and Reactive inks to blend a dusky sky. I started with a circle of Lemon Drop near the center left of a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of bristol smooth cardstock and then blended an arc of Fruit Punch into the yellow. Next I added an arc of Grape Slush, and finally a bit of Blue Hawaii.

Next, I stamped the birds in Fog Reactive ink onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of layering vellum and quickly poured Ultra Fine embossing powder over the image and melted it with a heat gun.

To assemble the card, I added glue only to the bottom of the ink-blended panel and adhered the vellum panel to it (the visible part of the vellum panel is not adhered at all). Then I used foam tape to adhere the pumpkin patch layer. Finally, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thank you so much for visiting!

  1. Love the way the vellum softened your ink blended sky…its stunning! Looks to be nearing the end of summer, with all of the green in the corn fields and pumpkin patch. It won’t be long before all the colors begin to change. Beautiful card!

  2. Such a peaceful fall scene. The way your sentiment looks like it’s coming out of the corn field makes me think of the baseball players coming out of the cornfield in “Field of Dreams”. Thanks for sharing!
