A Colorful Life Designs October 2023 Release

Welcome to A Colorful Life Designs October release, which I am sure you are going to love. I know I did while making my cards for this month.

A reminder to use my discount code when purchasing from A Colorful Life Designs, which is KiaFan10 for a 10% discount off your entire order. I appreciate your support.
For several cards this month I have used Vellum. The one I am using is very thick, being some 90+lbs., hence it is very good vellum which I wanted to test out.

For this card I first did the background, using All Over Trees stencil on Hammermill cardstock along with Mowed Lawn distress oxide ink. Once the ink was dry I attached the background to my card base using Art Glitter glue.

Using the vellum I stenciled the Stick Wreath stencil on the vellum using Ground Expresso, which I then turned over and glued down to my card using Vellum tape. I die cut the sentiment by Picket Fence Studios and attached it to my card front using foam squares. I love the feel the vellum gives the card.
This stencil is "Beautiful Poinsettia" and the sentiment is also by A Colorful Life Design called "Spread Love". I used Pinkfresh Inks to colour the stencil, being Sparkling Rose, Berrylicious and Bubble Gum. I added splatters of Kuretake Gold watercolour and added green to the centre leaf's. 

For the sentiment I stamped using VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne.
This stencil is Candy Stripes, which I did on my Neenah cardbase using Candied Apple distress oxide ink. In front, using Dotty Trees stencil and vellum I applied the Mowed Lawn on the back of the Vellum, and turned over before affixing to my card using Vellum tape.

I then die cut the sentiment which is by Picket Fence Studios from Red cardstock and added a few Pinkfresh gems to complete. I really love this card, it is so cute I think.
For the stencil above I have used Circle Shadow stencil and Scandinavian Flowers stencil along with Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar distress oxide inks.

I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Nocture, and added a few Pinkfresh gems to finish.
This is Tall Skinny Tree along with the Snowman from he Spread Love stamp set. Just too cute for words. I stenciled the tree stencil 3 times, using three different distress oxide inks in Cracked Pistachio, Mowed Lawn and Salvaged Patina.

To my Neenah cardbase I added the green cardstock on an angle with the stenciled card, also on an angle. I then attached the Snowman on foam squares and stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Glamorous.
Here we have Fluttering Snow in the background along with the overlay of Cheery Snowman which I did on Vellum. I turned the vellum over to affix to the card, using foam squares between the cardbase and Vellum to prop the Vellum up.

I the die cut the frame by Impression Obsession and attached it to the Vellum Art Glitter glue. As the Broom was in the area of the frame, I sponged on the Broom part to the frame.

The colours I have used for this card are Prize Ribbon, Candied Apple, Ground Expresso and Tumbled Glass.
Gosh I just love this stencil, big and bold! It is called Fetching Snowflake, and I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Twilight.

The background colours are from bottom up, Speckled Egg, Peacock Feathers and Unchartered Mariner, which I just love together. I added splatters in white gouache along with water to the panel.
One of my favourite cards is this card, Using Hammermill cardstock for my design piece I am also using Square Shadow stencil along with Beautiful Rays stencil. I added Distress Oxide colours in Unchartered Mariner, Lumberjack Plaid, Speckled Egg and Rustic Wilderness.

I then die cut the sentiment x 3, with the last piece being in silver glitter card and the others using Neenah cardstock. I used Art Glitter glue to attach the sentiment together and to attach it to the card front.
And, my last card for today. For this card I am using Merry Christmas stencil along with Gingerbread Men which is a 2 part stencil, the second part being the glitter gel I used for the buttons and faces. How fun this was to do.

I do hope you have enjoyed my cards for this release. I sure did enjoy making them, it is always so much fun to do.

I thank you for your visit.
