You have through Sunday Sep 23 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on Sep 24 on her Blog. On the first & third Wednesdays of every month, we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop! The Special this month is the Pumpkins on a Fence stamp – 50% off! 

For my CAS card, I stamped & colored the cute pumpkins then I used 2 colors of glittery embossing powder just on the tops..sort of a frost on the pumpkins look. I used my out of the box die cutting technique to keep the little flourishes intact. I also added a pair of embossed & fussy cut leaves to the orange pumpkin. On the wheat image, I stamped it w/ the acorn ink & embossed w/ the same powder I used on the orange pumpkin. I also swiped around the edge of the panel w/ the ink & embossed it, as well. The Autumn word was die cut in rust & lt blue & before stacking them, I inked & embossed just the top half of the rust colored one.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Please be sure to comment on all the is much appreciated & also increases your chances of winning!

This was made for two Splitcoast challenges..the Color Challenge (CC705) using soft suede, pool party & berry burst..and the Clean & Simple Challenge (CC499) to frame it. For me, this is about as CAS as it gets. 

I put the solid stamp (bg for the wine bottle) into my Misti, inked it w/ the raspberry color, misted it, then stamped on the Neenah, I inked just the lower section w/ the berry color & stamped. I repeated this using the oxide raspberry just on the top part. Then I lined up the wine bottle/glass and stamped on top w/ the nocturne ink. I added just a bit of the pool color to the wine bottle & glass, then die cut the frames out of sand colored c/s. I forgot to take a pic of the Copics I used, but on the sand frames, I used YG93, E43 & E44 to make the suede color. I used BG000 on the wine bottle.

Here’s a look at the inside.

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS606), & I chose Preethi! She has a really lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the frame & layout but changed mine to fall card, used leaves instead of flowers & added a watercolor bg & some gold embossing.

For my autumn card, I inked up a watercolor bg image w/ several Distress ink pads, misted w/ water then stamped onto a die cut piece of Neenah white. After drying it, I stamped a splatter image w/ gold ink & heat embossed w/ gold powder. I have to say..this particular gold embossing powder is fabulous! I’ve tried a lot of them but this one is a very detailed, very shiny mirror gold. Anyway, I did the bg for the leaves the same way then stamped them w/ the black ink & die cut w/ their matching dies. A little gold embossed splatter was also added to the leaves.
