I have three cards today featuring some of the new release. Whether you like cute, cuddly, or elegant, this release has you covered. I worked a bit outside of the box on my cards for this release. If you have followed me for any time then you know that scene building is my love. I didn't build scene for these cards, but I still love how they turned out. So, without further ado, let's get started!


For my first card I combine two new products from the release, the Fall Borders Stamp Set and the Grateful Shaker Die. I stamped the images onto a piece of Lawn Fawn Ground Espresso cardstock with Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink and used colored pencils as my coloring medium. (I always love the effect of colored pencils! I tend to shy away from them though because they take so much longer than Copics. This panel took me about three hours to color.)

I then die cut the Grateful Shaker Die once from gold shimmer cardstock and three more times from the Ground Espresso cardstock to give dimension to the die cut sentiment. I love the elegant look of the gold on the darker background. I layered the front panel onto complimentary accent colored cardstocks to complete my card. 


My next card uses the beautiful new Sunflowers Stamp and Die Sets. For this design, I used MFT Hybrid Ink to stamp my images onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock and colored them in using Zig Watercolor Markers. Again, this is a coloring medium that I rarely use because I always seem to gravitate towards my Copics. These lovely blooms took about the same amount of time to color with the Zigs and my Copics usually do and I love the way the colors blend so easily. The sentiment is from the new Bear Friends Stamp Set.


And for my final card share today, I used the new Thanksgiving Scene Stamp Set. Who wouldn't love to see these cuties arrive in their mail?! This is a scene type card, but it is one image with a single sentiment. I used Copic Markers to color my image and Distress Oxide Inks to blend the background. To set the design off, I added the Twine and Bows Die Set in Ground Coffee cardstock at the bottom.

I hope that you have your hopping shoes on because it is time to get moving! Below I have listed and linked the other participants for today:
