Stamper's Anonymous Halloween 2022 - Leaf Prints 2 and Embossed Glazed Crest Autumn Card

Hello Everyone! I hope you were able to catch the Tim Holtz Stamper's Anonymous Halloween Live on Saturday...if not the replay is available...because there was soooo much goodness to be shone...WOW! I am always blown away by the makes and the inspiration I have after...after my mind calms down that is. I am truly humbled to even be apart of it all, and really do thank all of you for the support and encouragement. That being said, here is my After Live make using the new Leaf Prints 2 Stamp Set and Crest Layering Stencil, and I'll have the other two projects that were on the Live here within the next two weeks, so stay tuned for those. This Autumn card has all the yummy colors of Fall that I love so much, and just makes me feel that windy chill in the air, along with that cinnamon-y smell. It was even quite fast to make, minus the drying time on the paste. There is probably a little too much going and blending on here, and so some parts are harder to see at certain angles, but I like a card that has to be stared at and touched to fully get the Seasonal impact I was going for. More is more! ;0) Enjoy!
Cut a piece of Watercolor Paper to 4.75 x 6.75 inches for card front. Ink over the whole surface of the paper with Speckled Egg Distress Ink from Ranger with an Ink Blending Tool. 
Place inked paper in the Stamp Platform. Gather Leaf Prints 2 stamp set and plan out the arrangement of the leaves to cover the whole surface of the card. Close the platform to secure the stamps. Using Crackling Campfire, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, and Peeled Paint Distress Oxides, randomly ink portions of the leaves with each color and stamp. Add more of any of the colors until all parts of the leaves are stamped. Leave the leaves in place on the platform. 
Remove the top portion of the platform with the Leaf Prints. Shake up Harvest Moon, Wicked Elixir, and Burning Ember Distress Mica Stains. Take the lid with the stamps and the three Stains outside or place in a Splat Box, and mist each color of Stain over the Leaf Prints. Immediately place the lid back on the platform and stamp them over the paper. Open lid and let paper sit for a few minutes to absorb the Stain.
Lightly mist or flick water onto the paper. Remove the paper and let dry. Remove the lid of the platform with the stamps and run water over it until the Stain is all removed. Pat stamps dry with a paper towel and place back on the stamp plastic cover, and dry lid before placing back on. 
Shake the Harvest Moon Mica Stain, and lightly mist over the paper. Let dry, and then ink the edges of the paper with Speckled Egg Distress Ink.
Have all the Distress Embossing Glazes open and ready to go and a clean piece of paper nearby to capture the Glazes. Place the Crest Layering Stencil over the left side of the paper so only the top to the bottom of the vase looking part is showing and the stencil is at the very left side of the paper, and then secure with tape. Using a palette knife and Distress Crackle Texture Paste, apply a nice thick like layer of the paste through the stencil. Remove the stencil and place in water to clean later.  Working quickly while the Paste is wet, pinch a bit of the Vintage Photo Embossing Glaze and carefully drop the powder over the parts of the stencil that look like a vase and post of the vase going upward. Add a little Fossilized Amber to those places as well. Next add Fired Brick and Crackling Campfire Glazes over the five roses and the dots on the leaf vine going out to the right. Then add Rustic Wilderness Embossing Glaze over the leaves around the roses. Randomly add Twisted Citron and Peeled Paint Embossing Glazes over all the rest of the leaves. Lift up the paper and place over the scrap paper and gently shake the paper to make sure the Glazes cover all the areas of the paste and then turn the paper over and pour off the extra powder. Save the powder if you wish in a jar for other projects or throw away. Let the paper dry about 30 minutes to an hour and then heat emboss. 
Cut and fold a Kraft card base to 5 x 7 inches, and ink the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Archival Ink. Cut a piece of orange Metallic Kraftstock to 4 7/8 x 6 7/8 inches, and mount on the Kraft with two sided tape. Stamp the sentiment onto Watercolor Paper with Vintage Photo Archival, and then ink over it with Speckled Egg Distress Ink. Cut around it, and mount onto orange metallic, cut around that and fishtail the left end, and then mount onto Kraft, cut around with the fishtail, and ink edges in Vintage Photo. Add sentiment to card front and then mount the card front onto the base.

  1. Thank you again for sharing your talent and process!! It must take so much time to do this in such detail but you do an excellent job of explaining to this novice 63 year old ..your pictures are fantastic and can I look at them again and again…I’d gotten away from all the Halloween decor after moving about 15 years ago and having to part with much of my decor….
    Oh, you and the other kind, talented makers inspiring “makes” along with Tim Holtz/Mario’s release videos have brought back the excitement and joy for this holiday that I have been missing. In my opinion that’s truly one of the most treasured blessings I’ve received since finding papercrafting and the wonderful people who so generously share! You have been a big part of my new found joy! From the bottom of my heart I thank you, Nancy Rolfe
