October 2017 Release Products


 

How beautiful are our new October Release products?!! Oh, I am in love!!! Hope you are enjoying our new products and inspirations from our team. Stamp sets for this release are designed by Effie and our very own, fabulously talented Eunji Jung! Let me tell ya, it was extremely difficult to choose the sets I want to make today’s projects with. After contemplating many days, I decided to go with Tulip Bouquet, Daffodil Greetings, Celebration Rose Cluster, and Country Rose Cluster stamp set. I had so much fun creating these 4 cards and I cannot wait to share them with you! So let’s get started!

Here’s the first card I made with our new Tulip Bouquet stamp set!

I started off by stamping the Tulip Bouquet image on a watercolor cardstock in our Noir ink and heat embossed with clear powder. I stamped the image multiple times so the ink could stay moist long enough for the embossing powder to stick. Then I started coloring with various Stabilo 68 pens, blending the color with Clear Sparkle Pen instead of clear water. However, I used Turquoise Green Zig marker and clean clear water for the background. I also added some white gel pen dots for added interest.

When the coloring was done, I waited for the panel to dry completely and die cut using the largest die from our Small Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. Next, I stamped the sentiment on vellum strip, heat embossed in white, and wrapped it around the panel. I popped up the panel on a mint A2 sized top folding card base using fun foam and finished the card off by adding some Glass Slippers Sequins.


 

Here’s the 2nd card I created with our new Daffodil Greetings stamp set. This set will be available for purchase next month.

For the color scheme, I was totally inspired by this image I found on Google!

Purple Daffodil

To start off, I stamped the Daffodil Greetings image on a kraft cardstock in our Copic friendly Caviar Hybrid ink. I first colored the image with Copic Markers. The colors I used are V17, V15, V09, V01, YR07, YR09, Y17, YG67, YG17, YG03, and YG01. Then, I added more details with matching Polychromos color pencils. I also added some gel pen highlights.

Next, I dry embossed the frame around the panel using 3 largest dies from our Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and the rubber embossing pad. I stamped the sentiment (from the Country Rose stamp set) on the panel and finished the card off by adding some Dew Drops and Glass Slippers Confetti.


 

Here’s 3rd card I made using our new Celebration Rose Cluster Stamp set!

I started off by stamping the Celebration Rose Cluster image on a smooth white cardstock in our Caviar Hybrid ink. I colored the image with Copic markers and retraced all the lines with a black felt tip pen to achieve bold dark lines. The Copic colors I used are R89, R29, R24, Y17, Y06, YG67, YG17, YG03, and YG01. I also splattered black opaque watercolor on the panel for added interest. I die cut the panel down using the largest layer from the Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies.

Then, I die cut using our Brushed Happy Coordinating die over the image. I die cut 2 more out of white cardstock and glued all of them together for added dimension. I pieced it together and adhered it on a white A2 card base. I stamped the sentiment (from Country Rose Cluster Stamp set) and blended Light Onyx Dye and Noir Dye ink on the edges. I dressed up with some Clear Rhinestones and sequins from Black Tie Affair Mix and the card was complete!


 

Last but not least, here’s the 4th card using our new Country Rose Cluster stamp set.

I started the card by stamping the Country Rose Cluster image on a kraft cardstock in our Found Topaz Dye ink. Then I colored the image with couple of Inktense pencils (Willow & Bark) and Polychromos pencils (Raw Umber & Walnut Brown) keeping the monochromatic no-line coloring look. I drew and colored the frame on the panel using the same pencils. This card was inspired by Marika Rahtu’s stunning monochromatic card I saw on YouTube. 🙂

I stamped the sentiment “sending” in Dark Roast Dye ink and “Hugs” in Noir Dye ink and adhered the panel on a A2 kraft card base. I dressed up the card with some Clear Rhinestones and it was done!
