Blended Season Thumping

Oh, I’ve had so much fun making this card which I have called Blended Season Thumping. You might say I’ve had a thumping good time with it. Every time I did the thumping it produces different results.

I have a closer view of this centre panel for you below, so you can see where I thumped with markers to get the effect.

Um, maybe I need to do a video to show it more clearly. Tomorrow’s job.

What You Will Need

Blended Season Thumping

Blended Season Thumping Basics:

  • Cut card to 14.9 cm x 21 cm or 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
  • Score and fold at 10.5 cm or 4 1/4″
  • Cut card for the first layer at 14.4 cm x 10 cm or 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Cut another card front to 14.4 cm x 10 cm or 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • You need a scrap of card for the sentiment and more for stamping the leaves
  • Stamp leaves on the spare card using a combination of thumping and stamping in Stazon and colouring with Watercolor Pencils. Use the Aqua Painter to give the watercolour look. Fussy cut these with your Paper Snips
  • Stamp the sentiment and punch out
  • Die cut some leaves from scraps of card – I used 2 (1 in Cajun Craze and 1 in Granny Apple Green)

More Basics

  • Cut card 14.4 cm x 5 cm or 5 1/4″ x 2″
  • Using the leaf image thump the Stampin’ Write Markers over the leaves and stamp on the strip. Repeat the strip is covered.
  • Die cut the frame and sponge around it, the card front, sentiment piece and the strip with ink.
  • Adhere the strip to the centre of the card
  • Place the frame on the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Wrap about 6 rounds of Metallic Thread around your hand and lay it on top of the frame
  • Use Glue Dots and the Craft Silicone Mat to build up sentiment piece and adhere to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Cut a card insert to 13.5 cm x 9.5 cm or 5″ x 3 3/4″
  • Use the thumping technique to ink up the leaf stamp. Line up the envelope next to the card insert and stamp the two together. Adhere the insert inside the card
