Gina K. Preview Day 3: Signs of Autumn StampTV Kit


sunflowers

Here is a card I made using most of the elements of the new Stamp TV kit Signs of Autumn, a great collection of autumn images both outline & solid and Thanks a Million, a perfect collection of gratitude sentiments combining standard & script fonts for a classic & elegant look!  I used the sunflowers image and sentiment “the world is a better place because of you” (I stamped because of you on the inside).  The digital papers I used for this set are Timeless Treasures (solid green) and Signs of Autumn (the funky circles and squares pattern, which I LOVE) colors just remind me of a field of sunflowers which is what I tried to recreate with the blue shadow outline like the sky.  The ribbon, dazzle & bling ivory flowers (I colored it yellow to match the sunflowers) and brads are also in the kit.

On this card, I paired a few other images from the StampTV kit with Inspiration Mosaic, masking the sections where I wanted to place the images.  I thought using my retired Pumpkin Patch spectrum pad with autumn colors would be a great compliment to the sunrise/sunset sentiment in the set.  For the card base, I used the new Green Apple cardstock which will be available this Thursday.  It is a wonderful shade, in between Kiwi Kiss and Old Olive.  I also adore the Pumpkin Spice, a wonderful rust color – I’m just thrilled with the colors & quality of Gina K.’s cardstock – I wait with anticipation for the reveals each month!   FYI: Pumpkin Spice will come in the StampTV kit only this month, but will be released as an individual buy for our August release.
