10/13  WEDNESDAY: A Walk in the Woods and Greetings of the Season
I must say I love this stamp set...it is my favorite from this month`s release although they are all fabulous! I chose to do a CAS card. This truly was a 10 minute card. I let the gorgeous tree and powerful sentiment say it all. I stamped using 2 colors of Distress Ink, added twine and a sun charm, and used Basic Grey DP inside and on the envelope...all available from Mark`s Finest Papers .
 
This is another favorite set as I love watching the beautiful cardinals in our yard. I used another white panel on my card base and added the 3 panels of Basic Grey DP and popped it up. Added the dp to the envelope and inside the card. Cut out the bird using a Nestabilities Circle and colored with Copic Markers. I did add Spica Glitter Pen to the pinecones and leaves but the photo did not capture it. I hope you enjoy my samples and I thank you for looking! Please come back tomorrow for more!
Please be sure to check out all the design team members cards below...you truly won`t want to miss them!

  7. Beautiful cards. I just love the Basic Grey Indian Summer DP. It has been wonderful to use for cards this time of year. I have a beautiful view from my craft room of a red sugar maple. It has been very inspiring to me these days.
