Art Impressions | Pumpkin Spice

Hi-ya,

Today I’ve got a watercolor card to share with you using the Stamptember special edition AI Pumpkin Spice stamp set. This image is adorable – these ladies look like the best of friends chatting over their lattes. Don’t you just want to know what story she is telling? Here is the video of what I came up with:

Here are some still shots of the finished card:

I followed the packaging art for where to add in the shadowing but added some brighter colors to my scene.

Such a cute sentiment – it’s definitely pumpkin latte season.

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope I was able to give some inspiration. xoxo, Sarah

3 Cards | Spellbinders October Large Die Kit

Hello there,

Today I’m sharing 3 cards I created using the Spellbinders October Large Die Kit. This truck die is absolutely fantastic – it’s the reason I checked out the kits in the first place and I’m so glad I saw that sneak peek because I’m loving all of these kits so far. The really great part about this large die kit in particular, is how versatile it is – you can use this die set all year round! Here is the video of what I came up with:

Here are some photos of the finished cards:

1

This card is my favorite. I love the blue truck with the orange pumpkins, it’s so perfectly Fall.

I stamped out this sentiment from the SSS Thankful Heart set using Lawn Fawn Hippo ink and brought in a little piece of the orange to finish up the sentiment.

Cardstock Colors: Nightshift Blue, Cement Gray, Steel Gray, Red Hot, Jelly Bean Green, Tandy Orange, Orange Fizz

As much as I love the truck die, I think the snow is what really makes the picture. I’m still thinking about adding some puffy dots of that marvy snow pen in the “sky” in addition to the sequins I added.

This Mama Elephant Jingle Greetings stamp set is wonderful – you’ll see me use it lots more during the coming Christmas Series.

Cardstock Colors: Wild Cherry, Cement Gray, Steel Gray, Red Hot, Field Day, Chocolate Brown

I created this card using the sample that came with the die set (love that they include this!). I just made a few changes and I used some of the pattern paper that came in the October card kit.

I used SSS Birthday Bits stamp set for the sentiments on this card. I love this font and go back to it time and time again when I’m creating birthday cards. It embosses wonderfully too!

Cardstock Colors: Bubblegum, Cement Gray, Steel Gray, Red Hot, Smooth White

Make Pie | Stamping Bella Watercolor

I’m aiming to share a few fall cards with you before I start my Christmas series. So today I’ve done a watercolor using an adorable tiny townie from Stamping Bella. You can check out the process video here:

Isn’t she adorable?!? Stamping Bella is one of my favorite companies and her Tiny Townie line is just the cutest of all.

And that sentiment – what an original take on the phrase. It’s bound to put a smile on any one’s face.
