Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Changing Seasons

Welcome to the October 2020 Edition of the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! You'll see projects from around the world--but I'm in Colorado Springs, Colorado. (Note: I can only sell to customers in the US, so any prices are in USD)

We generally hop the first Friday of each month, and our theme for today is Changing Seasons! My projects feature the Gather Together BUNDLE along with the beautiful Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper. {you'll find all Product Purchase Links below the Blog Roll near the bottom of the post}

The Gather Together BUNDLE is a Returning Fave from last season, and it's a special deal because usually when something returns, the Bundle pricing of 10% OFF is not extended. But, this time it is! I love that you can use the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper to create something either a little more elegant, or something a little more whimsical.

Between being forced into the new Blogger interface, and accidentally smudging one of my first cards, plus losing my good sunlight to capture the shimmer on these cards, getting these pictures up was a bear! But I hope you can see the little droplets of the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, and the metallic details on the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper. I used the Water Painters (one of the skinny brushes) to dip into the shimmer paint, then tapped the brush against my finger to let the paint splatter on the card bases (after stamping the backgrounds), and on the dry embossed die cut leaves from the Gathered Leaves Dies.

I purposefully made a card using each side of one of the 6 different double-sided designs of the patterned paper. They are all so gorgeous, it can be hard to decide which side to use! This way, I get to see both designs. To make the leaves pop a little more, I used Stampin' Sponges to go over them lightly with Early Espresso Ink, and Cajun Craze Ink.

Stampin' Supplies: Gather Together BUNDLE (includes Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set + Gathered Leaves Dies), Crumb Cake Cardstock and Ink Pad, Early Espresso Cardstock and Ink Pad, Cajun Craze Ink Pad, Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, Water Painters (to apply shimmer paint), Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack, Stampin' Sponges, Stampin' Seal Adhesive, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, Paper Snips, Grid Paper, Paper Trimmer (to cut and score cardstock), Simply Shammy (to clean Photopolymer stamps). NOTE: you'll want to use the NEW Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with the Gathered Leaves Dies. {see Product Purchase Links below the Blog Roll}
