First Frost with Buffalo Check

September 28, 2018 No Comments

Hi!  Welcome to my blog.  I’m Sara Levin the artful inker.  Today, I’ve had a first play with one of my Holiday Catalog stamp sets — First Frost.  I’ve got a lovely color combination to go with it.  Let’s take a look at my First Frost with Buffalo Check card.

First Frost Bundle by Stampin' Up! get it from theartfulinker.com

 

Here’s the First Frost Bundle that I used for today’s card.

It contains the beautiful First Frost stamp set and the coordinating Frosted Bouquet framelits.

Both the stamps and dies are versatile — always a favorite feature for me!!

And when you purchase them together, you save 10%!

First Frost with Buffalo Check card color combination from theartfulinker.com

For my color combination,

I used:

Sahara Sand

Crushed Curry

Mossy Meadow

and Merry Merlot.

First Frost with Buffalo Check Card

To begin, I used a Thick Very Vanilla base.

Then, I added a Very Vanilla layer stamped with Buffalo Check in Versamark

and heat embossed in Copper.

When heat embossing, I was careful to just melt the embossing powder.

With the fine lines in the check, I did not want to heat to the point of

causing them to blur together.

Using the smaller of the two flowers in the First Frost stamp set, I inked in Merry Merlot and

stamped at full strength.

Then, I stamped a second flower without re-inking.

Next, I inked the thistle image in Crushed Curry (yes, I know that’s not their real color).

So for my leaves, I played mixologist!

Starting with a piece of Very Vanilla, I brushed it with a wet Aqua Painter and then

sprinkled on Moss Green Brusho and brushed it around.

Then, I dipped my Aqua Painter in Mossy Meadow ink and brushed it into the mix

being careful to not saturate my cardstock.

Once the color was mixed to my satisfaction, I quickly heat set.

Using the Frosted Bouquet Framelits, I cut out the flowers, leaves and Sahara Sand berry clusters.

For the sentiment, I used the wonderful layered tag dies in the Frosted Bouquet Framelits.

Then, I stamped a sentiment from First Frost in Merry Merlot.
