Here is a card I made using most of the elements of the new Stamp TV kit Signs of Autumn, a great collection of autumn images both outline & solid and Thanks a Million, a perfect collection of gratitude sentiments combining standard & script fonts for a classic & elegant look! I used the sunflowers image and sentiment “the world is a better place because of you” (I stamped because of you on the inside). The digital papers I used for this set are Timeless Treasures (solid green) and Signs of Autumn (the funky circles and squares pattern, which I LOVE) colors just remind me of a field of sunflowers which is what I tried to recreate with the blue shadow outline like the sky. The ribbon, dazzle & bling ivory flowers (I colored it yellow to match the sunflowers) and brads are also in the kit.
Close up of the crystal lacquer on the flower centers. I colored the image with peerless watercolors and Niji waterbrush on pure luxury cardstock (80 lb layering weight). The final touch was piercing around the focal image with the circle piercing template.
On this card, I paired a few other images from the StampTV kit with Inspiration Mosaic, masking the sections where I wanted to place the images. I thought using my retired Pumpkin Patch spectrum pad with autumn colors would be a great compliment to the sunrise/sunset sentiment in the set. For the card base, I used the new Green Apple cardstock which will be available this Thursday. It is a wonderful shade, in between Kiwi Kiss and Old Olive. I also adore the Pumpkin Spice, a wonderful rust color – I’m just thrilled with the colors & quality of Gina K.’s cardstock – I wait with anticipation for the reveals each month! FYI: Pumpkin Spice will come in the StampTV kit only this month, but will be released as an individual buy for our August release.
