Oh---what a BEAUTIFUL, new Catalog!! 
There are so MANY things to choose from, but today, I created this card! 😉 

This card is actually the Make N take Card for my Open House this week!
Each person that places an order, will receive this card as a "thank you" gift from me!🤩
Let's take a closer LOOK at this lovely card!  

I ADORED the new Leaf stamp set in this mini-catalog. It's called "Autumn Is Calling"'s a closer look. 

These LEAVES...the swirl, the words. 🍂🍁🍂💗

I included the "Stamp Rolling" technique in this card design and used it on the Leaves.  

 Take a look at this you see how there are TWO "tones" of color to the orange (Nectarine) leaf? 

That was created using ONLY the Nectarine ink pad! 

How to Stamp Roll
1. Ink up stamp image with ink
2. Stamp inked up image on SCRAP paper
3. Take stamp, and roll the edges of the stamp in the ink again. 
4. You can look at the stamp...and you'll notice you now have DARKER shades of the ink around the outside edge of the stamp! 
5. Stamp the image on the desired paper. 
6. You have a two-toned stamped image! 💗

If you look at the SOLID leaf in the photo above, you may also notice one of our NEWEST colors --- Shortbread -- YUM!! 
I used the shortbread ink to ink this one leaf AND.....take a look at the border stamp (which was probably hard to see on the first card photo).  

Who LOVES this SWIRL BORDER as much as I do???😍😍

Next, let's take a peek at the "coffee" part of the card. ☕ This is another FAVORITE stamp set in this catalog & it's called "Pumpkin Treats".  Here's a look at this Stamp & Thin Cut set. 

WOW---so many fun images!! What would you create with this stamp set? 🤔
The coffee cup drew me...and this is how I created it. 

I used ourTri-Blend alcohol Markers to color the cup. FIRST...the image was stamped with our Intense Black ink pad.  This is a MUST HAVE ink, if you like to color with alcohol markers, watercolor pencils or watercolor paints! 😉 The ink does not bleed when touched by these items...and it allows you to color in beautifully! 

Coral Blend
Gold Brown Blend
Vintage Blue Blend

I finished off the Whipped Topping by adding Icicle Stickles Glitter Glue! 
AND...I have to DRAW attention to the Lovely, Gorgeous tiny strip of Glitter paper on the LEFT side of the card ---the NEW Harbour Glitter Paper!! ✨✨✨
A STUNNING color for sure!! 💗
