My first card features the cutest Paw-tumn Newton stamp set. Since the fabulous autumn image from this set is quite big, I decided to keep everything clean and simple and just highlight the stamp with watercoloring. To start, I die cut the kitty plus a couple of pumpkins and autumn leaves with the coordinating Paw-tumn Newton Die Set. I also prepared a faux stitched rectangle from Frames and Flags Die Set while I had my Big Shot die cutting machine on the desk. I worked on Arches Cold Pressed Watercolor paper since I like its texture. I saved the negative parts of the dies and used them inside my MISTI tool for a perfect alignment while I was making the stamping using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and Paw-tumn Newton stamp set. The stamps and the background were colored with regular watercolors from my customised palette.
An extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) was made from a kraft cardstock. I simply stamped the “SMILE” sentiment from new Heartfelt Wishes stamp set directly on the watercolor background and started assembling all the element together with a bit of dimension.
The second card highlights new beautiful Fall Roundabout stamp set. To start, I heat embossed with a fine white embossing powder the leaves stamp on Strathmore Bristol paper. Then I framed it using a scalloped circle from Circle Frames Die Set and proceeded with coloring using Tombow markers and a small water brush from Pentel.
As always, I’m sharing all the exact colors used here: TOMBOW MARKERS 025, 055, 126, 476, 723, 743, 905, 933, 990, 991.
An extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) made from Neenah Solar White paper was embellished with a tone on tone pattern through new just released yesterday Houndstooth stencil with a plain white embossing paste just for something little extra. I let the background air dry and then assembled the card together wrapping a light kraft twine a few times around the card front, popping the colored circle on a foam tape and adding a heat embossed sentiment from the same Fall Roundabout stamp set. A few clear sparkle sequins gave a finish touch to this project.
