A New FMS Sketch and Sweet n Sassy Stamps Oct. Release Blog Hop!

Hello All!

Welcome to the Sweet n Sassy Stamps October New Release Blog Hop!  You are in for a treat with all of the amazing inspiration along the way.  Hop along with us, leaving a comment on each blog hop post, and you will have a chance to win a $10 gift voucher to the Sweet n Sassy Stamps store.  Deadline to comment is October 22nd, 10pm ET.  Winner will be announced on the snss blog on October 23rd. 

I love a neutral palette, so the inspiration at Inspired By was right up my alley.  I also used the newest Freshly Made Sketches sketch for this card.  I hope to see your card in the gallery!

Keeping with the neutral palette theme, I heat embossed my leaves and acorns with gold ep on vellum and fussy cut them out.  The leaves are from the fabulous Autumn Splendor Stamp Set.  I stamped the background stamp, Typewriter Text, in kraft ink.  A bit of black and white striped paper and a bit of kraft cs make the perfect strip for the black die cut sentiment.  A few sequins and gold thread behind he sentiment finish the card.

Next up, a super CAS card using one leaf image from the Autumn Splendor Stamp Set.

Inspiration for this card came from CASE This Sketch!~

 I gave no line water coloring a go again, this time stamping with Old Paper Distress Ink. I  used Arches Cold Press Watercolor Paper and colored with Daniel Smith Watercolor Paints.
The sentiment, from the Sympathy Innies Stamp Set, was heat embossed in brown ep on vellum.

Sweet n Sassy Stamps has a fantastic sale going on now through October 31- 15% off on all autumn themed stamps.

Hop along with the rest of the design team for some fabulous inspiration!
