More Autumn

I changed a few of the colors – this time adding Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz and Cherry Cobbler.  This first card has so much texture – I love it.  I used the square lattice embossing folder and the Daisy die for the Big Shot.  Remember – you can get a FREE Big Shot (or $100 […]

Gently Falling is such a beautiful stamp set.  I wanted to try some different ways to get different colors onto the leaves.  For the second card, I colored onto the stamp with watercolor crayons, spritzed with water and then stamped.  The first card was done the same but with markers instead.  It gives slightly brighter colors.  You can also […]
