TCM: Autumn Border

Hi there!

Today begins the preview blog hops for The Craft's Meow September release which will be available on September 21.  We have five new stamp sets that we will be featuring until then on our blogs to give you lots of ideas with these fabulous new stamp sets!

Our first set being featured is the new Autumn Border illustrated by Clare Buswell.  I love the images as well as the variety of sentiments/fonts Clare choose for this autumn stamp set.  For both of my cards today, I did a bit of watercoloring on watercolor paper with Distress markers.

Card details
Stamps: Autumn Border
Ink: Distress; Versafine black; Colorbox chalk
Paper: PaperTrey Ink solid; Watercolor
Other: Sewing machine; detail clear embossing folder; SU taffeta ribbon; PTI impression plate; buttons; Distress markers; marker spritzer

Usually when I watercolor an image, I like to stamp in Versafine black ink and use Ranger's detail clear embossing powder to set the ink.  I like the ridges that the embossing powder adds to help keep the water where I want it to when I'm watercoloring.  I try not to worry about staying inside the lines when I'm painting but the teacher in me doesn't like going outside the lines too much... sorry! lol!

Card Details
Stamps: Autumn Border
Ink: Versafine; Distress; colorbox chalk
Card stock: Watercolor; PTI solid; My Mind's Eye patterned
Other: SU taffeta ribbon; doily; sewing machine; Distress markers; Waterbrush; clear embossing folder

To see everyone the designers' cards for today's preview with this new stamp set, please check out The Craft's Meow store blog for all the photos and links.  I've seen some of them already and know you will love what they've prepared for us today!

Have a great day!

Jessica these are gorgeous cards - I particularly like the top one with the little sets of stitching on the edges of the image panel, and that wonderful embossed background.

Beautiful cards Jessica. I especially love the first one. This Autumn Border stamp is really pretty and you did such a good job watercolouring it.I like the bg impression plate you used too, then the stitching tops it all off beautifully.
