Well folks, we are now a few days into one of the most colorful seasons of the year -- my personal favorite -- Autumn! And, what better time to pull out the orange, crimson and amber shades of decorative paper, ribbon and buttons than now! We thought since we are fresh into fall, it would be fun to comb through the Inspire Me Monday archives to find some of the best tutorials that truly capture this beautiful time of year.
ARE YOU READY FOR OUR TOP 5?
Click on over to Ally Cope's tutorial where she puts the spin on one of our favorite harvest time blossoms (Sunflower Power) with a truly unique and fall-themed spinner card!
Have you ever used embossing paste? Well, Christine brings out the feel of fall with this beautiful background and then puts a gorgeously colored autumn scene on display! (So Grateful) Psst. if you like this image in clear, I have a little hint for you... you might want to check back for tomorrow's digital stamp set release. Yep, that was a hint! ;-)
3. Ink Smash!
Sometimes, we just gotta get messy and let that vibrant color take over. That's exactly what Dina Kowal did with this fun technique called Ink Smash. Click the link and you'll even find a video showing you a step-by-step video giving you all the deets you need to pull off this look with Power Poppy's Sunny Harvest set.
2. Coloring Up Fall
Colorista Mindy Baxter shows us exactly how to color up these fall fruits in rich hues using Copic Markers. Cue up this tutorial, grab your markers, your Fall Haul digi stamp if you have it and a cuppa your favorite beverage and that's what I call a great way to spend an afternoon!
1. Chalkboard Sunflowers
Use the trendy look of chalkboard behind your digital stamps in this ab fab video by Ally Cope. She used a chalkboard design behind Power Poppy's Sunflower Power image, but honestly, if you follow the tutorial, you can add all kinds of patterns behind any one of Power Poppy's digital stamps. This, my friends, is one of those "can't miss" tutorials! We happen to love it now because of it's fall flair!
We hope you've enjoyed this "Best Of Inspire Me Monday," and we hope you found some inspiration! Sometimes, you just need to scroll through past tutorials to realize how many there are in the Power Poppy archives that maybe you didn't try yet or really need to try again!
Have a wonderful week everyone! Be sure to tune back in tomorrow for another Instant Garden release. I can't wait to see what new image "sprouts" in the Power Poppy Shop!
Until next time!
