Welcome back to our third day of previewing new stamp sets soon to be released for purchase through GinaK Designs! Tonight we are showcasing Gina's new StampTV kit called Autumn Splendor. She'll have a video on StampTV introducing her kit on Thursday night at the release party as well as more information about the kit on her blog tonight, so be sure to check in her if you haven't already for all those details.
My cards tonight are pretty basic again - I was really feeling inspired by the 'clean and simple' design while creating my samples for this release. I wanted the focus to really be on the images and cardstock so decided to experiment a bit with minimal layers and clean layouts... something that doesn't come very easy to me. My first card shows just that - the focus on the card front is the Thanksgiving sentiment, while the inside features the pumpkin image.
Stamps: Autumn Splendor
Ink: Memento; vintage cream ink
Cardstock: GinaK Kraft and Ivory; October Afternoon dp
Other: Sewing machine; basic grey button; SU punch; corner chomper 1/4" punch; twine; piercer; template; copic markers
My next card is one of my favorites from this release because I really like the sewing with the Soft Sand and Ivory card stocks and October Afternoon patterned paper with the vibrant yellow wheat image. And, this is my favorite sentiment in the Autumn Splendor stamp set too!
I ended up keeping the inside plain, so that I could add a sentiment if I wanted to later. I'm not sure if this will be a thank you, Thanksgiving, or even thinking of you/encouragement card yet. The sentiment is so nice because it really could fit any of those occasions quite easily.
Stamps: Autumn Splendor (GKD)
Ink: Memento; Vivid
Cardstock: GinaK soft sand and ivory; October Afternoon dp
