August 24, 2017 Hostess Club Project-Smackin' Acetate and Gourd Goodness

I made my own background with reinkers and by following Gina K's "Smackin' Acetate" video on Youtube, Here.  

Basically, you drop ink on a piece of acetate or a window sheet, smoosh your cardstock in the mixture, and there you have it, your own one-of-a-kind background.  Awesome!!!

All of my wonderful Hostess Club ladies will learn this technique and make this card when they come to my August 24, 2017 meeting.  I'm excited.

I used the stamp set, Gourd Goodness, in the 2017-18 Holiday Mini, and will be available for purchase September 1, 2017.

  • The base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  piece of Garden Green, scored at 4 1/4. 
  • The Daffodil Delight piece is 5 1/4 x 4. 
  • I used Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, and Peekaboo Peach reinkers on a Window Sheet, and my Thick Whisper White piece is 5 x 3 3/4.
  • I stamped the leaves and pumpkin stems with Garden Green ink, the pumpkins with a Pumpkin Pie ink pad.
  • I used some retired Daffodil Delight seam binding because it looked wonderful with this card, and because I have three rolls of it. 😀 
  • I used the Layering Squares Framelits Dies for the pumpkins.
  • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
  • All done!!!
