Fall Friday 2017 Week #2
Eastern Medallions Christmas Card

SCS Creative Crew September 2017 Project #3

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up Vintage Leaves stamp set #138802, Merry Cafe stamp set #144965, Retiform Technique, designed and created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman


I have been wanting to try the Retiform Technique for a while.  With fall being our theme, I thought this would be a great time to try it.  I love it!  It is so fun and you get to use so many stamps from the one set.  You know how sometimes you only use 1 or 2 stamps from a set, this makes you use most, if not all of them.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Early Espresso Cardstock #11968

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"

The ink colors I used were:

  • Cajun Craze #126965
  • Cherry Cobbler 126966
  • Crumb Cake #126975
  • Crushed Curry #131173
  • Early Espresso #126974
  • Old Olive #126953
  • Tangerine Tango #126946

The stamp sets I used were the Vintage Leaves and Merry Cafe. Vintage Leaves has been around for a long time and is still one of my favorites.  I used the sentiment from the Merry Cafe stamp set, which is in the holiday catalog, but only part of it.  The whole sentiment is "Hello Fall!  it's pumpkin spice latte season".  To get only a section of the stamp I used a post it note and covered up the part I didn't want inked.  Before I stamped it onto my paper,  I took off the post it note and was able to stamp only the hello fall section.  You have to remember to take off the post it note before you stamp your paper though.  Don't ask how I know this.  Too many times I have had to fix my mistake.  

This is really my fourth and final project from SCS Creative Crew.  My third was the Fall Friday Week #2 project.  If you missed it click HERE to see it.

It's a beautiful card...that's always been one of my favorite sets too. I'll need to search about the Retiform technique though--that's a new one for me!

Thank you Susan! It is a lot of fun. I ran out of time to do a video before we went to Michigan. There are some great ones on YouTube and SplitcoastStampers.com.
