Hi card making friends. Well it’s the 6th of the month so that means NEW SPELLBINDERS CLUBS are live and available for sign up. I’m starting the month off with the Spellbinders Enchanted Stitched Mushrooms or, the Small Die of the Month Club Kit. There are 6 little pieces to stitch this month, but they are small, and all require the long stitch so they work up quickly to create a fun card.
PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. See below for my full disclosure.
Our weather has changed here with fall starting to show her colors, so I decided to follow suit with my card. Lots of beautiful bright leaves and earthy brown mushrooms. I backed it with a beautiful piece of teal cardstock embossed with this month’s 3D Embossing Folder – Mushroom Harvest.
How to create the Spellbinders Enchanted Stitched Mushrooms.
Starting with a half sheet of white cardstock, cut the leaves twice and all the mushroom pieces.
Next, using Distress Oxide Inks and blending brushes, color all the mushroom pieces, starting with the light colors and working through to the dark.
Ink used for mushrooms:
Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon, Brushed Corduroy, Gathered Twigs and Ground Expresso
Next, use the Gold DMC Thread and #24 needles from the Stitch Along Add On Kit to stitch all the pieces before gluing them together.
Spellbinders Enchanted Stitched Mushrooms – coloring the leaves.
Start by using Distress Oxide Inks for the leaves:
Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Crushed Olive, Rustic Wilderness, Fossilized Amber.
Start by using small blending brushes to add pockets of colors to the leaves and then blending them to remove any lines.
Next, add the greens to the stems. I’m in love with how these leaves turned out, you know me and bright colors, LOL.
Then, create a white top folding A2 sized card base, 4-1/4″ x 11″, score and fold at 5-1/2″. Cut a piece of Portobella 4-1/4″ x 1/2 and glue down for the card front.
Next, Use the 3D-Mushroom Harvest embossing folder and emboss the teal card stock cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ and use tear tape to attach it to the card front.
Finally, use small pieces of foam squares to attach the leaves first and then the mushrooms to the card.
Embellish with the sentiment cut from mirror gold cardstock and Gold Mix Color Essentials Gems. the gold highlights mirror the stitching and add a bit of glimmer to the card.
