Introducing Amazing Paper Grace Seasonal Label Motifs Collection with Cards Two Ways

Welcome to my creative space!

This Amazing Paper Grace Fall Label Motifs die set (S5-519) is such a versatile and gorgeous die set and is part of the new Seasonal Label Motifs Collection.

My first card fits the fall theme of this set featuring this sweet pumpkin and acorn surrounded by gorgeous watercolor fall foliage. What a beautiful way to welcome in the fall season which is the favorite of so many. The sentiment is from the Seasonal Motif Sentiments stamp set (STP-150)

Then I wanted to show how to use this lovely set for a non-fall card using the gorgeous label and background inlay. I layered a stamped and hand colored butterfly over the inlay and surrounded them with handcrafted flowers using Petite Floral Potpourri (S3-420) and Cinch and Go V (S4-995) dies along with foliage die cut using the My Sweet Friend (S5-512) set. The border around the inlay uses the Eyelet Lace Frame (S6-184) die set.

Be sure to scroll down through the Tips and Techniques section below for more close-ups and all the details on how I put these lovely cards together. 

Today's projects were created with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Projects for Today

Tips and Techniques
I layered fall orange, yellow and red color mists onto watercolor paper and die cut it to create these amazing fall leaves. I just adore the organic feel these grungy colors create. The berries are die cut from the same paper, then rubbed with red distress inks to deepen the color. The berry branch is also cut from this paper. The stems are colored brown, and the berry section is left in the original color so that the tips of the berries are this lovely fall orange color. 

Beautiful fall color patterned papers are die cut to create the pumpkin, acorn, label and inlay as well as for the background layers. The edges are inked where appropriate to help give definition. The fall sentiment from the Seasonal Motif Sentiments Clear Stamp Set (STP-150)
is stamped with brown permanent ink onto white cardstock, then colored with distress inks.

One final shot of this beautiful fall card.

I've used beautiful summery patterned papers to cut daisies using the Cinch and Go V die set (S4-995)  paired with smaller flowers die cut with the Petite Floral Potpourri set (S3-420).  The flowers are shaped and centered with gold stamen. 

This sweet sentiment pairs beautifully with the lovely butterfly and is stamped onto white cardstock and colored with distress inks to coordinate with the background. 

This beautiful foliage is die cut with the My Sweet Friend set (S5-512) from white cardstock and colored randomly with distress ink. 

The background paper is distressed around the edges using the edge of my scissors blade. After adhering the foliage, the background was spattered with black India ink. 

The medallion in the center of the flowers was silver. I brushed it with white gesso then applied Finnabair waxes to color this beautiful piece. 

Prills are scattered below the floral cluster to add texture. I brushed the area with Finnabair Matte Soft Gel Medium, then loosely scattered the prills over the wet medium. The gel dries matte and perfectly clear, so is not visible once dry. 

This inlay piece is just so gorgeous and particularly striking in red. The outer layer is die cut using a die from the Eyelet Lace Frame set (S6-184).

The gorgeous butterfly is stamped, then colored with distress inks by pressing the ink pad onto my craft mat and picking up the ink with a round fine tip paint brush to color the lovely image. The butterfly is fussy cut to layer over the inlay.
