Wendy Vecchi Fall Wreath and Potted Flowers Cards

Hello everyone!  I'm delighted to be sharing my first ever guest post on the Ranger Ink blog today.  Hop on over to the Ranger Project Page for the tutorial.  Thanks so much for the support!!!

I've also made another card along the lines of the last card I shared HERE with the Wendy Vecchi Flower Pot Stamp, Stencil and Die Set


This card features a completely different color combination, but basically the same card design.  I swapped out the Stitched Circles for the Stitched Rectangles.   And the Letter It stamps for sentiments from the Flowers Say It All set.

I added a wash of Watering Can to extend the images when cutting the flowers and pot.  I love how this touch of grey makes the design more earthy.  And pairing Watering Can with Thistle and Cornflower Blue... this MUST be my new favorite color combo!   And I'm kicking myself for waiting so long to use Wendy's Old Quilt background stamp!  It's the neatest background!  I hope you're feeling inspired.  Make sure to check out my Wendy Vecchi Pinterest board HERE before you go.  Hugs, Autumn

Ranger Archival Ink Fall Bundle with Wendy Vecchi Stamps

I'm so excited about the beautiful new palettes of Archival Ink that Ranger Ink has released this year at special bundle pricing.  I'm currently working with the Fall Bundle and can't wait to get my hands on the Christmas Bundle


I wanted to try out Wendy's Old Quilt background stamp with the Flower Pot Stamp, Stencil & Die set in Red Geranium Archival Ink.  When I stamped it out the result was too clean and simple for my taste.  But when stamping with Archival Ink, you ink over it without smearing the ink - yay!  So I fixed it up with a dip in watered Wendy's Make Art Blendable Dye Ink Pads Acorn. 

The idea popped in my head one day that I could fold a piece of cardstock in half and die cut Wendy's Flower Pot to make a jumbo sized pot that could literally overflow with these darling die cut flowers.  To hide the crease, I used the Tim Holtz 3D Lumber Texture Fade.  I cut two of these, then dipped them in puddled Acorn ink.  I cut the top off of one and mounted with foam tape over the other for dimension, sponging the edges of the pieces with Sepia Archival Ink. 

I used the Archival Ink Pads in Sepia and Fern Green to stamp the grassy elements behind my die cut flowers.  The sentiment is from the Letter It Thank You Stamp Set.  I will definitely be using the pot die this way in the future - what fun!
