Introducint our 2010 Fall and Halloween Lineup

Our new line up is sure to please all who love Halloween and Fall. It is one of our favorite times of the year and such a fun season to celebrate. Thank you all for following us this week, as we have been giving sneak peeks of today's releases. Our new line up is now available in our store front - under the new stamps section.

Now for the eye candy! We hope you enjoy!

I LOVE dandelions in the Fall. They're so delicate and it was a pleasure to illustrate. One of my favorite color combinations is black, cream and tan. I stamped and embossed the Leaf Flourish in black onto tan card stock, twice for a mirrored image. Next I stamped the Dandelion Bunch onto cream card stock. I edged panel with Forest Moss distress ink. I then layered onto black card stock and trimmed very closely around the top and sides, but left an inch and a half at the bottom. I pulled out my favorite Martha Stewart punch and gave the bottom edge a beautiful lattice work edge. Next, I stamped the phrase, edged it with Forest Moss ink again for a bit of color and mounted onto tan and then black card stock. Layer all together as shown. The final card size when finished is - 4.5 by 6.5".
These next two cards we think are pretty fabulous. Halloween is one of Mary's favorite holidays. She kept is so simple and did a bang up job with these tow Halloween cards. I LOVE the contrasting colors, so rich and vibrant.
Here is another beautiful card from Mary.
Tesa focused on Fall for this stunning card. For full instructions and a close up, visit her blog here.
Jennifer had fun with this card! We can tell. I love how she used the Polka Dot Bats as embellishments for her card. It lends the perfect touch.
Back to Fall again! This card was super fast and easy to do! First, I stamped our Solid Leaf ATC onto cream card stock, with brown and burgandy pigment inks. I then embossed with clear embossing powder. Next, onto a tefflon sheet, I smeared Tea Stain distress ink onto my surface. I then spritzed with water to get it to bleed out onto the surface. I then dipped and smeared my paper around onto the watered down ink. It bleeds out as it dries and you get a pretty distressed look. Once dry, I punched out with scalloped punch (2"). I then punched a 2.5" scalloped circle with olive cards stock. I edge with Forest Moss distress in to add a bit of pop to the card stock. I then stamped Autumn is a Second Spring with the Forest Moss ink. I colored the edges with ink for a bit of color and mounted onto black card stock. The paper ribbon was made with my Martha Stewart punch, and I stamped the leaf pattern and embossed with gold. I layered all up onto a rustic patterned paper and finished with a couple of Prema Flowers. So easy to do! Final card size is 4.5" by 4.5"

 Leslie did a beautiful job with this little jem, and incorporated the hot air balloon from our clear stamps set. She used the matching hot air balloon die from Prickley Pear RS as well to get the perfect cut! Nice job Leslie. Love the golden hues.
