Day 2: Autumn Wreath Builder and Peaceful Roses

Hello, and welcome back if you hopped with us yesterday! We've got more projects to dazzle and delight with the new stamps and products! Be sure to comment as you hop through the blogs, because we will give away one $50 gift certificate each day and they will be announced in the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops conclude. One entry per comment! :) 

First up, we have the Autumn Wreath Builder stamp set. Grab your Wreath Builder templates, original MISTI, and some cubes and get stamping!


All the colors you see stamped here are in the 2018 Add On Ink Cube collection: Plum Punch, Lucky Clover, Coral Reef, and Tangerine Twist.  Cardstock is GKD Pure Luxury White and Plum Punch.

I showed at the party I made some cards to bring my This Girl Is girl into fall! You can stamp these small elements in her hand, clothes, or to build wonderful autumn scenes around her. :)
I couldn't decide whether to make the leafy garland going "up" or "down", but did up first. :) Hanging fits nicely, too.



Next, we have a new incentive set, free for a limited time with any purchase of $75 or more before shipping. It will be added directly to your cart! Peaceful Roses has a lovely line art floral image, perfect for coloring, plus pretty sentiments. I stamped on watercolor paper with Jet Black Amalgam ink and used a water brush and Peerless Watercolors to create this look. I thought the background and leaves looked so interesting, I decided to leave the flowers uncolored, except for a tiny drop of red at the centers.  Mat is popped up on foam squares and embellished with the GKD Crystalline Drops to look like water.
