So, for today I made two cards. Both of them were created using the images of the MMH of September, take a look:
For this card I began by creating the background. I used a Lapis cardstock panel and Faded Jeans Distress Ink to darken the upper part of the panel. Additionally, I sprayed a bit of water to create a bit of lighter tiny spots. Then, I stamped the corn images (solid stripe and corn detail stripe) using two different colors of ink. I created four strips and I die cut them with the matching frame cut. I adhered three of the strips overlapping them, so they look like rows, and I affixed them over the blue panel with foam tape. The remaining strip was adhered directly over the panel.
After that, I stamped the scarecrow and crow with Cup O’Joe ink and die cut them with their matching frame cuts. I adhered them behind the three corn rows block and above the single corn row. Finally, I white-embossed a sentiment, I adhered the panel over a folded card, and I added some sequins as the final touches.
For my second card I used more of the images included in the set. Take a look:
As I have said before, the best way to achieve excellent results while using Color Layering stamps is by using the Misti Regular Hero Black. Maybe a bit of investment here, but it is really worth it. Anyway, to create the pumpkin/corn field I stamped the different images with a different color of ink, layering them up until the scene was complete. I think this is the part that I enjoyed the most while using this type of stamps! Then, I die cut the block with the frame cut.
Next, I created a striped background using the solid corn strip. I stamped the strip using different colors of ink (light to dark) over a white cardstock panel. I also stamped the sentiment and flying birds directly over the striped panel with black ink. Then, I adhered the pumpkin field over the panel with foam tape and the whole panel over a folded card. I complemented this card with the scare crow and crow, a sentiment, some sequins and Glaze details.
