Hey Krafty Friends, Jen from Katahdin Krafts, back on the blog today with this fun fall card! Now I must confess, I am a pumpkin everything type of gal…*gasp*. I love pumpkin spice drinks, pumpkin pie, pumpkin ice cream….well pumpkin anything! I especially love their colors….the different shades of oranges, white pumpkins….and don’t forget all those amazing gourds! I love decorating for fall….so I am super excited to start my fall krafting! This is officially my first fall card of the season! Yay! *sips a pumpkin spice latte*

For my card today, I used the index card that comes monthly with your kit. This month Hedgehog Hollow used their awesome toner ink to print out the adorable truck card (with all the kit details on the back). The use of the toner ink allows you to foil on the images, so foil we must! I cut the index card down to 5.25″ x 4″ (you can always copy the back of the card if you want to have all the subscription box info for your records), and I cut a piece of deco foil in Amber Watercolor to size. Next, I used my rainbow brush set aside for foiling, and brushed all the dust off of my image. This gives it a much cleaner coverage. I then ran a sandwich of parchment paper, cardstock, the image and foil through my laminator two times.

Now with my image completely foiled I was able to color it in using my Copic Markers. The paper used for the index card, blends the Copics perfectly. The markers I used are:

  • Pumpkins: YR23, YR24 & YR27. Stem: G28
  • Truck Body: R08, E07, E08 & E09
  • Window: C00, C0 & C2
  • Truck Bumper: C0, C2, C4 & C6
  • Truck Railing: E31, E34 & E35
  • Background area: B21 & B0000

I love it!! Not that I want to rush the rest of summer away, but hey…it is followed by the sights and smells of Autumn. Thank you so much for krafting with me again today. I look forward to my next project with you on the blog! Take care and happy krafting!
