Have you had a chance to check out GinaK's new StampTV video yet? You've got to see it - she is using items and stamp sets from her new Signs of Autumn StampTV kit! This kit is so amazing - I am so in love with the autumn images and sentiments she has included in it as well as our new Green Apple and Pumpkin Spice cardstocks... yummy!
My card today shows several stamp images that are included in the kit. Being a former Elementary teacher, I LOVE anything to do with apples. I have quite the collection of apple decor in my kitchen, courtesy of many of my students throughout the years. So, when I was looking through my projects to decide on which card to share with you tonight I had to use this one.
I colored the bushel basket with Copics and then cut the image out with a nestability die. Leaving the die in place, I sponged some light yellow ink around the die to highlight it. Then, I applied a layer of Crystal Lacquer to the apples, used my Clear Sakura Glaze pen for the barrel and put some Judikins Dark Straw Speckles for the dirt.
This picture really shows the difference between the Glaze pen and Crystal Lacquer. The lacquer is much thicker and more dimensional, while the glaze pen shows up more as shiny - almost leather-like, I think. I like the contrast between the two mediums.
What a great sentiment, huh? Once again, the StampTV kit has a full size stamp set filled with images and a half-sized companion sentiment stamp set. The sentiments are all mixed fonts like this one and each one has to do with gratitude and thankfulness. I love them all and know they will get a lot of use from me throughout the entire year as I am always making thank you cards.
The inside of my card shows another sentiment as well as these gorgeous leaf images that are found in the image stamp set of the kit. To get the two tones on the leaves, I used two different colored inks on them before I stamped them and then cut them out to layer them on my card.
