Welcome to the November blog hop with my Crafty Friends, my second of two posts today! This month we are excited to bring you inspiration from The Stamp Market. I have only recently discovered this company and I’ll tell you what, I LOVE their products. They have a clean, fresh vibe that I can’t resist.
So I fell in love with the Leaves Cover Die the second I saw it. And this is why! Just look at what you can do. I cut the leaves out of watercolor paper and then simply added color. I was playing with fall colors earlier in the month for a background and decided I needed to stretch the idea a bit. I used my Daniel Smith watercolors in yellows, oranges and red and just kept adding paint until it was right. I cut the sentiment out of more watercolor paper with the Lots of Leaves Dies and added the same colors to it. In order to help it pop a bit, I added another die cut of the sentiment underneath.
Here you can see the watercolored panel that I cut down to use inside the card. It is uncolored near the top and there is plenty of room for a note on the lighter parts. As we approach Thanksgiving, this card simply reflects all that is nice about fall in Virginia.
As with previous months, we have a discount that is being offered via our hop. Click on the graphic for a link right to The Stamp Market. Note that there are some restrictions but there is also a sale through November 22nd on the new Color Crush line using code COLORCRUSH20.
