The sentiment is from SSS October kit & the card bases are PTI Rustic Cream. A feeling of accomplishment to have turned these diecuts into cards, finally!
Next is my card for Poppystamps Fabulous Fall challenge using 4 Poppystamps dies. I love the look of hydrangeas in the Fall when they have shades of purple, rust & gold. I used direct to paper with VersaMagic Dewdrop ink pads in Eggplant, Purple Hydrangea, Gingerbread & Pumpkin Spice to color Layered Lovely Flowers & it worked great to get the look I wanted. I used a sponge dauber to blend any sharp color edges.
Garden Lantern was embossed in Liquid Platinum & Copper ep. I also used the copper ep on a round embellishment to make it match. Scribble Hello was stacked & inked with the 2 purple shades. I inlaid heavy weight vellum for the glass.
Lattice Small Curve was die cut from the same brown cardstock & inked with Versamark Dazzle for a subtle background. I added a tiny brown pearl to the flower center.
I'll close with my Pinkfresh Studio felt Layered Wreath Christmas card. Hard to believe I wasn't really into felt on cards when I first saw it used in a stamping magazine many years ago. It certainly grew on me & I ended up buying quite a few colors from several companies.
I attached the lighter green MFT felt to copy paper. Then I die cut the wreath. I happened to have the perfect darker green from TE, so die cut a bunch of the little leaves to layer on top. I had a couple of the red glitter dots in the package & they looked perfect for the berries, so I diecut a few more from the same glitter tape. PFS Nested Diamond background makes a beautifully subtle background stamped in Delicata Golden Glitz. Wish the pictures showed it better. I didn't want a bold sentiment, so I stacked PFS Classic Holiday Words 4 high & covered the top layer with Shimmer Pico Embellisher. Rosemary. I'm entering Color Hues, Just Us Girls & PFS Add Texture.
