If you arrived from Julia Stainton's Blog, you are on the right track. If not, you can start the hop from the CLASSroom Blog! Without further ado, here are my cards.
Ahh... I absolutely adore these gourds! =)
All the gourds and leaves are cut using the Gourd-jus die set with watercolor paper. I then colored them with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor.
After adhering them to the card front, I added a few matching watercolor dots for a little interest. The sentiment is from the Autumn Acorns set.
For my second card, I inked up images from the Tis the Season set. This time there is a matching die set being released! =)
Mr. Chill Santa and the car + Christmas tree are stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink, colored with Copic markers then cut using the new matching dies.
The sentiment is from another new set called Holly Jolly. I embossed it with WOW! Gold Glitter Finish embossing powder on vellum. I just love the extra glittery shine this embossing powder gives!
All the new stamps and dies are available NOW! You can also find the entire release here!
There is also a crazy good Grand Giveaway in the CLASSroom on Friday, October 30th!
