Special Fall Cards Inspiration

Hello and welcome to a special Fall Card Making Inspiration post! 

Maybe you're totally into fall cards right now, maybe you're not but would like to get inspired or you just want to take a look at my fall card collection, either way, I hope you'll find something you'll enjoy :-) 🍂



I'm totally into fall cards at the moment, even though I - surprisingly - really enjoyed making Christmas cards for my Design Team work. I love to get inspired by pictures, nature, other crafters and more, so I thought, I'd share some past fall cards with you to get your fall card making going :-) 

You'll find different kinds of cards, many different styles, brands and techniques. I tried to sort them a little for you, so you could easier find what specks to you. All these cards have individual blog posts, so just click on the card you like to learn more about it. Please notice, that most of them come with a short tutorial and newer ones are written in English but not all of them. Older posts are written in German but there is a translation button on the right. Thank you for your understanding. Feel free to ask questions in the comment section below. 

🍂 

Enjoy and happy crafting!

🍂 

Focus on Coloring

On these cards, I spent most of the time coloring. I really got into the details of the images and kept the backgrounds quite simple. 

   

   


Clean and Simple

These cards are easy to recreate and do not take much time to make or supplies. There's a lot of open space that makes them clean and simple.

   


   


   


No-line Coloring

This is a beautiful technique I enjoy a lot. It did take some time to practice but I think it is worth the effort. I just love the different look you get and this way get more out of your stamps.

   


   


Die Cutting

There are so many beautiful die cuts out there that would love to get on a card. Die cut them from colored card stock or color them using watercolor paper and inks or paint.

   


Watercolors or Watercolor Effects 

As you can see, I love using smaller images all over my card and color them in with watercolors or watercolor markers. Or how about a fall color flower bouquet? For these cards, I used watercolors, watercolor markers and Distress Inks for creating watercolor looks.

   


   


Ink Blending

Coloring die cuts or masked backgrounds with Distress Inks and a blending tool is so much fun and the possibilities are endless. On the right, I combined ink blending with heat embossing for the emboss resist technique.

   





Patterned Paper

If you're a bit like me, you have these beautiful patterned papers that are sitting on your shelve waiting for a home on a card. You could e.g. use some as a fun frame or for a cool landscape.

   

You made it to the end of my post! Yay! Do you have a favorite? Was this helpful? Please feel free to ask questions or leave a comment in the comment section. THANK YOU!

If you would like to see more fall projects I did, there's a theme category on the right which contains all of my autumn cards and crafts. I also am putting together an inspiration board on Pinterest to get us all inspired. 

🍂 I hope you enjoyed scrolling through some of my fall cards. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a colorful day,
Nicole
