Gina K Designs Preview Day 3!

Ohhh have we got a good one for you today! It's a preview for the new StampTV Kit! And it is AWEsome! It's called "Signs of Autumn", *sighs* my favorite time of year! Ok, here is my first card:



I made another CAS card, and I just really love how this one turned out! Do you love that beautiful orangy/rust colored cardstock? It's called Pumpkin Spice and will ONLY be available exclusively with this StampTV Kit until we have August's release! It goes so awesome with this kit's colors of cardstock, the NEW Green Apple, Chocolate Kiss, and Ivory...just beautiful colors for Autumn! For this card, I used a paintbrush and swiped some regular acrylic paint where the sentiment was going to be and then just stamped it with StayzOn Ink. I free-handed the piercing of the swirl where the leaf is 'falling'. I colored the leaf with copic markers and cut it out and popped it up. I also colored the twine with copic markers to match the Green Apple and added the brads that come in the kit. Hung a charm from the twine and was done! I think it will work for a masculine card too!

Now for my next card I went into a bit more detail:



I once received a beautiful fall arrangement that had flowers in it similiar to these, and these colors! So that is what I tried to copy. I colored the flowers with copics, cut them out and popped them up too. I took that beautiful Pumpkin Spice cardstock and ran it through the crimper, added that ribbon, which is also in the kit, tied a button on with the twine that comes in the kit too! I think this card just ooozes Autumn!
