The Special this month is the Sweet Gum  stamp & Sympathy die – 50% off! 

For my clean & simple card, I made a water color background using Distress reinkers, on some lightweight watercolor paper. There wasn’t a science to it..I just floated in some fall colors & let them mingle & run until I was happy w/ it then I used a heat tool to dry it & stop the colors from running any more. I put it into my Misti and stamped the Sweet Gum branch randomly. Originally, I was going to fussy cut some of the branches to use, but I decided I liked it just as is. Since the paper was fairly lightweight, I glued it to a piece of 110# card stock then die cut it.  The greeting was stamped & I attached it to the card.

Here’s a look at the inside.

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

A big Congrats to Cathie, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS561)! She has a beautiful, growing little gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the Thanksgiving theme & used similar colors, but I used a different layout, different images & used embossing resist as my technique.

My card is pretty quick & easy.  I started by stamping & embossing the two leaves in white across mostly the top & left side. I had to do just a little masking. Then I sponged on Distress oxide & regular inks & blended them toward the bottom. After die cutting, I turned the thin layer upside down & put it back then stamped the greeting w/ the Versafine. A single embossed, sponged & fussy cut leaf was added on top.

Here’s a look at the inside.

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge (FS560)! A big congrats to Jennie, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a big, beautiful gallery & after much browsing, I settled on THIS to case. I kept the pumpkin & Thanksgiving theme but used different images, a little different layout & only a strip of dry embossing instead of a full bg.
For my gold pumpkin card today, I gold embossed this lovely Filigree Pumpkin onto ivory c/s then die cut it & added a gold pierced circle layer behind it. The square panel behind them is a small bg I made w/ Distress oxide inks & stamped over it w/ gold ink using the Splatter Bg.  The larger ivory layer has the greeting gold embossed & I also added a little gold embossing all around the edges. The long rust color strip was a leftover that I dry embossed w/ an embossing folder.

Here’s a look at the inside.
