Today we welcome back our friend Jeannie Lieu to the blog. We love her colorful designs and hope you do too!

Hi crafty friends! It’s Jeannie and today I’m sharing a card featuring the  stamp set named, Pumpkin Season and the die cover plate, Nordic Cross Cover.

First, for my background, I wanted to create a subtle autumn rainbow. I die cut the Nordic Cross Cover using white cardstock and trimmed it down to 4 x 5.25 inches. Using the Trinity Stamps Autumn Rainbow Paper Pack, I chose 9 colors to trim down half inch strips. I flipped my Nordic Cross Cover card panel over and added double sided adhesive in between the pattern. By doing that, I could add the different strips of pattern paper, which will show through the Nordic Cross Cover pattern.

Next, I stamped out the pumpkin and leaf outline images in Versamark ink, covered it with Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set it. I also stamped out the “thanks” sentiment in the set and did the same thing. I thought it would be really pretty to use gold and it goes along with the autumn vibe. The Pumpkin Season stamp set makes it so easy to color up these pumpkins because it includes the solid stamps to do so. Using Concord & 9th’s Marmalade, Sorbet and Stardust inks, I colored up the pumpkins.

For the leaves, I used the Concord & 9th’s in colors in Sprout, Parsley and Clover. Although there are coordinating dies for the Pumpkin Season stamp set, I went ahead and fussy cut them so there wouldn’t be a white border. 

To put this card together, I matted my rainbow background on a piece of burnt orange cardstock and then added all the images and sentiment, focusing them on the bottom of the card.

To finish off this card, I wanted to add some bling, so I pulled out the Trinity Stamps Satin Gold Baubles and sprinkled them around the card.

I love how I was able to incorporate an autumn rainbow into this fall themed card and I hope you get inspired to create! 

Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!
