October Creative Cafe' Kit of the Month w/ Add On Stamp Set

Kristine here with two more fall cards for your inspiration.  By now you know how terrific the October Creative Cafe Kit of the Monthis.  Have you checked out the Add-On stamp set-Fall Traditions?
It will just add to your fall fun!

I used all the goodies from this months Creative Cafe Kit of the Month as well as the Fall Traditions stamp set for the two cards I am sharing with you today.


To make the background I started with a 3 1/2" x 4" panel of cream cardstock.
I stamped the words from both of this months stamp sets in various colors of memento ink.


For the tree panel I stamped the tree from the add on stamp set on a cream cardstock panel with Memento Rich Cocoa dye ink.


Then I randomly stamped leaves from the Fall Traditions add on set  with Memento-Cantelope, Tangelo, Bamboo Leaves, and Rich Cocoa ink.  I continued to do this until the tree was covered and then drew in some grass at the base of the tree with my copic markers.


For the card base, I backed my background panel with a slightly larger green panel and adhered it to a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" top folding orange card with Scrap Happy Glue.  I wrapped a piece of green rayon ribbon and a piec of burgundy rayon ribbon around the card.  I am "thrifty" with my ribbon so you can see how I save on length by taping the ends down with scotch tape.  It might not seem like much of a savings but if I can save an inch or two on each card I save enough for one or two extra cards.

I stamped the sentiment on a wood label that comes with the Creative Cafe Kit of the Month  and adhered it and two sequins to the card with Scrap Happy Glue.


For the main panel I cut my tree image out with a Spellbinder's classic oval dye and backed it with a green scallop edge oval and a brown scallop edge oval before adhering the entire panel to the card.


Here's one last look at this card.


This is the second card that I made using this months Creative Cafe Kit of the Month and the add on stamp set-Fall Traditions.


To make this card I started by adhering 5 different pieces of patterned paper to a 5.25" x 4" green panel. The pieces of patterned paper measure 4" x 2.75".



I stamped the sentiment on the bottom panel with Memento Olive Grove Dye ink.


For the next step I used my sewing machine to zig-zag stich around all the pieces of patterned paper.


To create the tree panel I stamped the tree with Rich Cocoa dye ink on a 4" x 2.75" cream panel.  
I created grass with Copic Markers.  
I sponged Brushed Corduroy distress ink around the edges of the panel and then backed the panel with a slightly larger brown panel.  
I punched two slots in the panel for my ribbon to go through.


This months kit comes with a bunch of awesome wood buttons.
For this card I decided to color my button with a copic marker.  It worked great!


Then I tied a piece of green rayon ribbon through the button holes.







Finally, I put everything together!
I ran green ribbon through the tree panel and around the entire green panel.
Then I adhered the panel to a 5.5" x 4.25" top folding orange card with Scrap Happy Glue.
The final touch was to glue the button on to the card with a dollop of Scrap Happy Glue.


Here is a final look at this card.


I hope you enjoyed this card and that you have been enjoying all the great design team creations this month!  There is still more to come so check back soon!

I love the tree stamp and was happy to receive a stamped sample at the scrapbook expo in Ontario CA.
