And now...on to some card making!!
YAY!! YAY!! and YAY!!

I finally had time to make a few cards with Gina K's
Sentimental Summer Stamp TV Kit.
The kit is terrific...
Lots of fantastic stamps......great card stock...and print paper...
and oodles of dies.

I've been doing lots of water coloring lately..
So I thought that I'd get out my Copics for a change of pace
and use them to create a few floral cards.

As the weather temps have been getting hotter here each day...
I've been thinking about Fall ...and everything that I LOVE about Autumn
(My favorite season) first card is...
a Thanksgiving card!

I used one of the floral stamps and 3 different leaf stamps & dies...
I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink..
I Colored the images with Copic Markers..then die cut each one.
The Mini Scalloped rectangle is by MFT.
While the die cute rectangle was still in the die...
I used the die as a stencil..
and used Clarity Stencil brushes to blend 2 ink colors on the rectangle.
After the ink was brushed on and blended... 
I stamped the sentiment...which is by Impression Obsession.
I chose a background print from Gina K's Grateful Heart print paper pad.
I matted the print with LCI Gold Metallic Card Stock
The sentiment piece and flower were positioned with fun foam 
for a nice sturdy lift and added dimension.
(The leaves were not positioned with foam)
When the card was put together...
I added a little bit of sparkle to the flower with Clear Wink of Stella

You can see the dimension created with fun foam in this photo.

I created  a second card...
changed up the color palette ...
And...chose a great print paper that went nicely with the colored stamped image
This scalloped square is a Spellbinders die and this sentiment is also by Impression Obsession.
I used fun foam again for the square and flower...
and added a few crystal sequins .
I brushed the flower with Clear Wink of Stella

This Gina K Stamp TV kit is beyond lovely...
There are lots of stamps that I'm looking forward to creating cards with.
I'm so glad that I finally had some time to open up the kit...
and use this flower stamp for the 2 cards that I've shared with you today.

Thanks for stopping by my crafty and creative friends..
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
